    Was looking into getting a Dash Cam for my MS. I see a lot of people go with the BlackVue option however I can not find anyone that has installed this cam system inside a MS with the Glass Roof. Therefore, I'm thinking about just getting the single channel DR650S instead of the 2CH one cause I don't see a way to get the cord for the rear cam past that glass roof. Anyone have any thoughts or ideas...?

    I have the Blackvue installed in my S with the glass roof. There are some threads on how to run the wiring. I had it done by my detailer, and there are no exposed wires anywhere.

    Is there a reason to believe it would be different than a pano roof model?

    You need the pano roof option for satellite radio but the Blackvue camera wires run to the rear run through the passenger side roof channels which are still there even with the all glass roof option.

    there is a gap between the glass roof and the car frame you can easily tuck wires in. Its actually quite noticable if you aim a flashlight or just run your fingers along the roof.

    Thanks for the information, didn't know that there was a channel on the passenger side.
