RAV4 2-Channel Dash Cam Installation (BlackSys CH-100B)

Many of our customers have been curious to see how the BlackSys CH-100B 2-CH dash cam looks like installed in a vehicle, specifically because they are interested in how it compares in size to the popular Blackvue DR650GW-2CH. Dimensionally speaking the front camera on the BlackSys is narrower and shorter than the Blackvue, but it does have a deeper (for lack of a better term) body. When properly hardwired and tucked it shouldn't be any more noticeable than the Blackvue, again thanks to an all black body and defeatable security LED.

The install we did, as you can probably tell from the title of this post was on a brand new Toyota Rav4. The concepts used for this install will be very similar to just about any hatchback or SUV. As you'll notice in the video, the more trim you are able to remove and replace the cleaner that installation can be. The only cables that are visible are just above where the cameras are placed (for obvious reasons). It's important to take off the panel on the hatch if you are planning to mount the rear camera on the hatch because this limits the movement of that connecting cable as the liftgate moves up and down.

Since the lens of the front camera on the CH-100B is on the left side (as with the DR650GW), placing the camera just to the right of the rearview mirror gives the video a very centered and even position. It also makes it so that the front camera is essentially invisible to the driver. This is an ideal positioning for left-hand-drive vehicles since it offers an optimal camera angle and reduces the visual distraction for the driver. Most of what you'll see in this video will be applicable to a large variety of makes and models and we hope it helps in your decision making process!
