JLR Dashcams

Post by Barachus » Sat Feb 27, 2021 8:31 pm

So it seems JLR have their own supplied and fitted dashcams with an app in the AppStore to compliment it

Has anyone had any experience ordering it and getting it fitted?

I ordered the front and back cams, off eBay - I thought it was from the UK, but they shipped from China! Took 2 weeks roughly.

I have photos of the install and it took me longer to locate the wiring diagrams for the MY21 Velar and details of the fuses and where I would plug it in etc. etc. than it did to actually fit.

The worst part was removing the passenger door Velar aluminium trim with the light in it... I broke two of the clips and will need to get replacements as they were a bugger to get off.

Feeding the cables is easy, as the plastic trims over the carpeting, is easy to push a cable under - except one part - between the front and rear seats!

I have the photos of the MY21 fuse box and lists of fuses. It is different from previous models.

Will post my efforts later!

I'm considering installing a dashcam but the local dealer seemed to be pretty clueless and said he thought very few owners had them. Has anyone been to Halfords?

@Barachus - I'm happy with it - at a third of the JLR supply cost!

@greypaint did you fit the OEWitness one :-

or the generic Chinese one :-

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/DashCam-Rang ... 3147279030

From your write-up (excellent!) it looks as though the fuse box connectors are pre-fitted but the generic one listed above seems to have bare wires?

I used the Generic one and it has the piggy-back terminal fuses on the two live feeds - there is also a feed for the rear camera, but it isn't needed. I can view front and rear videos from phone and take out SD card, if necessary. The parking option means it can record while you are out of the car. WiFi will not affect the DAB or FM radio!

The OE Witness one is different. The Generic on is below the shroud, so air flow to components in shroud isn't affected. I'm not saying the OE one would affect anything. I would likely have bought it, if I'd seen it...
