Choose camera placement

Before attaching the camera to the windshield, you need to choose the most appropriate location. When choosing a location, consider the following:

  1. The camera should be placed as high as possible within the wiper sweep zone of the windshield on the driver’s side.

  2. The camera portion of the device should reside in the top 2 inches (5 cm) of the wiper zone.

  3. The camera must not obstruct the driver's view of the road ahead.

  4. Avoid placing the camera near the vehicle's climate control system, as excess heat can interfere with the camera operation.

  5. Leave enough space to remove the key from the security cover.

The camera can be placed anywhere within the highlighted area.

Tidy away the cables

If you are installing a driver-facing camera too, attach it to the connector before tidying away the cables.

To tidy away the camera cables, to ensure they do not obstruct the drivers view:

  • Secure the power cable extension into the headliner panels and down the A-pillar. Do not put the video connector behind the A-pillar.


  • Use the cable ties provided to secure the cables out of the view of the driver. Then route the power cable around the side and behind the rest of the interior panels down towards the power source.
