BlackboxMyCar Mini USB Hardwire Kit

The BlackboxMyCar Mini USB Hardwire Kit is factory approved for use with mini USB 5V dash cams. For more detailed instructions on how to use a Hardwiring kit, check out our general Hardwiring Fusebox guide. For all the tools you need to properly hardwire your dash cam into your vehicle, we would recommend purchasing the Essential BlackboxMyCar Install Package.

By installing your vehicle using a Hardwiring Kit, you will gain access to new vehicle features including parking mode. Additional features can be discovered through our Dash Cam Buyer's Guide.

FAQ

What is Parking Mode?

Parking mode is offered on most of the dash cams available at BlackboxMyCar. While it is important to protect your vehicle while driving, it is just as important to have your vehicle protected while it is parked. When the dash cam is in parking mode, footage will only be saved when there is an impact and/or motion. Parking mode can be enabled with a hardwiring kit or a battery pack.

For more information on parking mode, click here.

What is a Hardwire Kit?

A hardwiring kit enables parking mode. It allows your dash cam to remain powered on even when the vehicle's ignition is turned off. Installation is a breeze as you will only need to find an accessory fuse, constant fuse, and a grounding point.

What is a Battery Pack?

Most customers purchase the battery pack to avoid using the vehicle’s battery to power their dash cam. The battery pack is charged by either being hardwired into an accessory fuse or by being plugged into one of the vehicle's 12-volt cigarette sockets. We recommend the hardwiring the battery pack as it charges the battery pack quicker.

How much footage will my memory card store?

On average, a 2-channel dash cam writes 16GB/hour and a 1-channel dash cam writes about 8GB/hour.

Do I need a Rear Camera?

Accidents or events don't always happen at the front of the vehicle! Having a rear camera provides coverage for any events or accidents that may happen at the rear of the vehicle.

For more information on rear view cameras, click here.

Do I need a IR Rear Camera?

An IR camera is designed to record the interior of the vehicle in low light conditions. This option is very popular among rideshare drivers.

For more information on why rideshare drivers need dash cams, click here.

What is a CPL filter?

A CPL filter attaches to the dash cam lens to eliminate lens flares, light reflections, and windshield glares.

VIOFO A119 12V Auto Hardwire Kit

Quality hardwire kit with reasonable length to the A119 and to the 12V battery source. Voltage reducer is small enough to fit in small spaces with rounded corners for ease of fishing into place. Fuse holder streamlined but difficult to open at first, 2nd time ok.

Hi Chester, thanks for leaving a review! Glad to hear that you were able to figure it out and install your VIOFO. Let us know if you have any questions. Thanks!

reboots at startup

My hardware kit failed, it reboots my Viofo A119S a few times at startup, then will stay on for the rest of the trip. Maybe it will work better when the weather gets warmer.

I don’t think I’m the only one experiencing the same problem. You guys should consider selling a high quality mini usb hardcore kit.

Hey Lok - thanks for the feedback and sorry to hear that. We should be able to replace this for you under warranty - just leave us an email at info@blackboxmycar.com with your order number. Thanks!

I bought the 'BlackBoxMyCar Mini

I bought the 'BlackBoxMyCar Mini USB Hardware Kit' to install my roommate's Mini 0805 dashcam when we found that the cigarette lighter install (Those parts included with the Mini0805) would be rather inconvenient. I ordered the kit with associated parts (Add-a-fuse, trim tools and self adhesive wire clips) and also had to get a miniUSB/microUSB adapter to connect the kit's miniUSB plug to the dashcam's microUSB recepticle. $6.00 from Amazon. The kit arrived promptly, well packaged and exactly as described and ordered.

My roomate (A Hairdresser by trade), considerably younger and more flexible than I am, did the majority of the install. She put the trim tools to good use totally hiding the wire to the 0805. She located a ground under the dash, then fed the power (+12v) lead into the fuse box from behind the dash and mounted the control box with sticky back velcro tabs to the underside of the dash. Now that my assistant (Assistant = The one that does all the work :) had taken care of all the mundane tasks, I took care of the highly technical details and crimped the power wire to the add-a-fuse and plugged it into the radio fuse location. The only problem encountered was that the sockets for the two fuses on the add-a-fuse were very tight and fuses had to be very firmly and carefully pushed into place. The add-a-fuse, supplied fuses and fuses in car were all of the same type so it was not a mismatch. Replaced the fuse panel, cleaned the windshield, connected the USB plug to the adapter/0805 mount/camera, adjusted for position and level and stuck it on. Done. Easy, Peasy ... at least for me having done at most 5% of the install .... :) Turned ignition on and the camera came on and started recording. A week later and everything is still working fine. At some point we will plug it in to a circuit that is constantly powered (Interior lights probably) and check out the camera's motion sensor and night vision capabilities as well as the kit's low voltage cutoff.
