    Hi there,

    I’m looking for someone to install a Blackvue 750 2ch on my X. Aside from Calibrated Customs (that are extremely booked), any other recommendation?

    Thank you!

    Wait and use Johnny at Calibred. Worth it. Clean professional work and they stand by their work.

    Al & Ed’s in marina day Rey claims to do it but charges more, doesn’t come to you, and does a less “clean” install. Calibred install looks like factory!!

    My next dashcams will be installed by Calibred Customs. The fact that they come to you is a real timesaver. Plus they do excellent work.

    That said, give Reus Audio in Orange a call and ask for Cliff. He'll probably say no unless you decide to get a Reus upgrade (and maybe even then may decline, depending upon how busy they are), but it's worth a shot, and if they do decline, he may recommend a good shop, and you can take his recommendations to the bank.

    Awesome. Looks like It’s better to wait... 10 long days :)

    On that note. Anyone here using a hotspot inside the car? Any suggestions?

    Another thing that’s stressing me is detailing the car. Any suggestions as well?

    Thank you all!

    I use a Freedompop Netgear Unite hotspot that comes with free 700MB/mo + 500MB/mo friend bonus. The blackvue only used 100-200MB a month. I plugged it into my trunk cigarette outlet and leave it there. I only paid $30 for it from bonaza.com but the seller got kicked out of Bonaza. You might have to get from freedompop itself now. Maybe @K-MTG can give some suggestion.

    That’s one expensive mount! What’s the advantage?

    Do they make mounts that allow both cameras to be under the rear view mirror? Will have one facing front and one back. And no I’m not an Uber. Plan on using it for a baby monitor when we pull in garage and baby is still sleeping so we know when she wakes up.

    Does the DR750S-2CH do that as well but just doesn’t have the infrared for night time? I’m not concerned about the night time visibility in the interior.
