    Hi folks, I recalled of seeing someone had offered a group buy of Blackvue car cam. Is it still available or you may able to share the vendor information for installation?

    I installed it last month. However, seems the windshield block the GPS. Did other users of car cam with GPS experience this ?

    I'm using Thinkware F750, and yes the windscreen does block GPS signal. It takes about 2 hours in an open area for my dash cam to acquire GPS location.

    The BlackVue is a lot smaller, I believe if you mount it as close as possible to the top edge of the windscreen then it'll get a better signal.

    Do you need to open the pano roof to acquire GPS signal? I have had the f750 and so far so good.. it is a bit bigger

    I'm planning to buy one. But still haven't got a reliable one to "hardwire" it. Any suggestion ?

    can anyone suggest a reliable technician who can hardwire the dash cam to provide 24-hour power supply ?

    If I park the car in an open area for 2 hours, it usually finds the signal on its own without opening pano roof. If I'm in a hurry, I can take the front cam off the windscreen, hold it up through the pano roof for a few seconds for it to find the signal, then put it back on the windscreen.

    Talk to Mark at Mars Automobile Services. He did mine, wired through the blackvue power magic pro.

    does removing lining/dashboard/sealing rubber etc in order to conceal the wiring invalidate the car's warranty?
