Finally bought a DashCam

I need to go on a spending freeze after this week, but I’m excited with my latest purchase. I bought a Dash Cam for my MX-5 Miata!

I went with the no-brand Chinese wedge design dash cam called A118-C the capacitor version, also called B40 Pro by some sellers on eBay. It was $66 bux with shipping from California (US stock) and I also got the hard-wire kit to wire it into the system so I have the cigarette lighter free for other use like charging my phone while I drive. I think the design looks pretty neat!dashcam a118c b40 kit for miata mx-5

I will likely use the dash cam alone without the wire cover that extends to the headliner. The MX-5 Miata headliner is plastic and I don’t see how I could stuff the wire under it, but I’ll find out when this thing arrives and I’m ready to mount it. dashcam a118c b40 for miata mx-5 mazda

I’m most concerned about the hard-wiring kit because I’ve never done anything like that before. I’m sure the splicing of wiring should be pretty straight forward I just hope I don’t burn the car down by doing it wrong. (touch wood)hard wire kit for a118 a118-c b40 dash cam

Anyway, it’s a cool accessory to have especially in this part of the world where people drive crazy… I often get the sense I’m about to be run off the road by a pick up truck with it’s driver on his/her cell phone. Hopefully with this thing I’ll have evidence if that ever happens. Or better yet, NOT!
