Hi, I am thinking to install 70mai Pro for the front screen and 70mai for the rear.

Is it OK for install 70mai as a rear cam?

I have the exact set up: 70mai pro for the front, and 70mai for the rear. So far both works fine for me and image quality on both are pretty decent (pro better than non-pro of course). The 70mai at the rear is connected to a power port below the arm rest/compartment between the front seats on my Honda City, given that the stock cable is only long enough to reach there.

Pretty convenient to manage both dashcams through the 70mai mobile app too.

I had completely remove the double sided tape from the windscreen. the problem I facing now is the sticky mark still on the windscreen. I am trying many ways to get rid of it as I see liao I beh song. Haha...
Maybe get some petrol to wipe it off. Not sure if it works or damages the tint.

Possible to try using any adhesive tape to stick-and-peel repeatedly, especially after your car has been out under the sun for some time (when windscreen is hot)?

Guys, I have a tried and tested DIY method to avoid sticking 3M double-sided tape directly on the windscreen.

Buy those cheap Fixate Gel pad and cut a piece out to the size of the dashcam mount and use it as a medium between the dashcam mount and your tinted windscreen. The Fixate Gel pads are very sticky and strong enough to hold the dashcam and its mount, and easy to remove without residue too.

Hahahaha... How I wish... Some cars do have USB ports... Anyway most SC will tell you install dashcam will void your car warranty. Only theirs won't void warranty.
*
The hardwire dashcam installation method may have a stronger case for SC to "void warranty", definitely not the USB plug-in method which is just like charging mobile phone in the car biggrin.gif

My ciggie port spoilt and SC blamed the USB charger I used cause it. Cannot claim warranty. Have to pay to replace the ciggie port in my car.

Until now still using the same USB charger by Aukey.
*
Oops...3rd party charger can be blamed too. Hopefully my 70mai stock USB adapters are fine in the long run.

Hi everyone!

Glad to have found this thread!

Wanna ask if 70mai or any of the dash cams easily removed from the windshield mount? My car is parked in open car park. So wanna remove the cam for the night.
*
70mai pro version is way easier to remove than the normal version, because the pro version can be removed (slide on or off) from the mount that is fixed on the windshield very easily.

The normal version also can be removed from the mount, but it involves removing a screw and bar that holds the cam to its mount.

Just sharing if anybody's interested. There's a pro version of the DDPai Mini 3 that records at 1600p. The link is in Chinese though:

Actually, the DDPai Mini 3 is a very good dashcam. Not sure why not so happening here in Malaysia.

Yea, I like the rotational cylinder shape which is quite discreet on the car's windscreen.

Using USB car charger also void warranty on the ciggie port laugh.gif  laugh.gif  laugh.gif

Mine spoilt twice and Honda SC says my Aukey 4 ports QC USB car charger's fault so cannot claim warranty. But now changed to the 3rd ciggie port, until now no problems.
*
From your knowledge of this, it's just the ciggie port that is excluded from warranty and not the whole car right? I've sent my Honda in for servicing at SC with USB car charger attached to ciggie port before hmm.gif

This depends on SC. Some SC very kwailan 1.

Read on Civic group, an owner change speakers and LED bulbs, got a fuse burnt bright back to SC and they reported to HM and his whole Civic warranty bye bye d. Less than 1 years old car.
*
I see...so far my usual SC didn't highlight anything after each servicing session. I hope that they don't take note of the record secretly though. Hopefully all is good for my warranty.

Heat and string to slice the mounting tape. Then I change to clear acrylic mounting for clean removal if want to remove.

Good to hear that acrylic-based tape offers clean removal. I've recently switched to acrylic tape but haven't attempted to remove the mount yet.

But if the ciggie port spoilt, SC will blame the equipment you plugged into the port and no warranty also laugh.gif  laugh.gif  laugh.gif

Yes, I hardwired it myself to my City 2014. No wire cutting or tapping. Just use the fuse taps with the hardwire kit and City have lots of empty fuse slots to use.

Nice but FYI on the Sandisk Ultra won't be able to last long in a dashcam. Maybe a year or so only.

My 16GB Sandisk Ultra is starting to show problems on my 70 Mai (non-pro) dashcam. Sometimes it will fail to record and there's a voice instruction telling me to replace the card. I have already expected this coming, just wanted to burn and expense the extra card. biggrin.gif

Get the SanDisk A1 Ultra card.
The non A1 SanDisk is a timebomb product for dashcam.

Thanks for the recommendation! I've gotten a Samsung Evo Plus as a standby replacement card.

Maybe this video will give u inspiration on DIY installation.
But if your vehicle's headliner is glued on to the roof, and the A-pillar covers do not allow for cable concealment, then u gotta go the adhesive cable clips route.

Can skip the glove compartment removal part by running the wires below/behind the compartment (the part where it's not visible) and secure with stick-on clips. The wire can then re-emerge to reach the ciggy port near the gear shaft. Works for my Honda City smile.gif

You can buy any acrylic mounting tape. It's will function the same. Only the price is different between 3M and other brands.

I'm using these bought from Mr DIY and Ace.
