The IROAD OBD cable is only compatible with IROAD FineVu, and Thinkware dash cams.

Not compatible with Tesla vehicles.

If your vehicle is a non-electric, PHEV or hybrid vehicle (ie. non plug in vehicle that derives all or some of its power from a conventional gasoline engine), then please select the "Non-Electric/Hybrid" option.

If you drive a true electric vehicle (ie. it gets all of its power from electrical sources), then please select the "Electric" option.


IROAD OBD-II Power Cable for Electric / Non-Electric / Hybrid Vehicles

The IROAD Power OBD-II cable can simply be plugged into the OBD terminal to enable parking recording with IROAD, Thinkware, or FineVu dash cams, providing a simple, plug and play option for parking mode. The IROAD OBD-II features:

  • Status LED
  • Set Recording Mode Switch (S: Driving Mode Only / P: Driving & Parking Mode)
  • Overcurrent shutdown (Minimum 3.4A)
  • Supports Stop & Go Technology
  • Compatible with Electric/Hybrid/Non-Electric vehicles*


The IROAD OBD-II cable has it's own built-in Low Voltage cut-off of 11.2V, though will also allow for your dash cam's built-in voltage cut-off to engage, normally at a higher cut-off.

The IROAD OBD-II cable will normally go into parking mode within moments of the vehicle being turned off, however with some vehicle models, the vehicle must be stationary for 5 minutes.

The IROAD OBD-II cable has a very small continuous power draw of ~6 mA.

*IROAD "Electric" OBD-Power Cable is NOT compatible with Ford Mustang Mach-E. We recommend using a hardwiring kit instead.

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.

Does what it says on the tin

It’s great, I bought this to use with a polestar 2 because I have no cigarette lighter plug. It was fantastic. Worked a freaking charm

Why Didn’t I Get This Earlier

Have installed a few Thinkware Dash Cams now for friends and this is by far the quickest and easiest way to connect all your power needs. Was as simple as “Plug n Walk Away”. Might do this all the time now.

No worries about wiring connections or insulation, or struggling with heat shrink, no searching for the right fuse circuits to tap into. No having to search for the bolt that the “ground” wire works well with. Just pure simple elegance and ease.

Dash Cam Iroad OBDII

Although I haven't had the opportunity for the install yet, (weather) I am anxious to get it done. It will save a lot of time and effort of not having to hard wire. As well, the customer service was second to none and very informative. They answered all my questions and made it an easy process. Thanks guys.
