Leaf all around view cameras as recording dash camera.

Sat Jan 11, 2014 12:55 pm

Waiting for my Nissan leaf, and first thing I will modify is install my current 20$ dash camera from ebay inside glove box and try to connect to front Nissan stock camera.
I do not like have camera mounted on the windshield and wires hanging to cigarette power socket (in my Prius now).
All it need is SD card recorder hidden some place eg. glove box. Recording cameras are big help when comes to collision or vandalism to deal with insurance and police. Dash camera starts recording when power up the car, and record in the loop very good quality video and voice plus time and date.
I will post when successful.

I'm not sure that the fish-eye view you get from the front cam is best for recording events in front of the car...
2013 "Brilliant Silver" SV with Premium Package and no QC, and 2009 Vectrix VX-1 with 18 Leaf cells.

The most offensive, tasteless phrase in use here is "Pulled the trigger." I no longer respond to posts that use it.

If fish-eye view is not usable I will remove original camera chip from the dashboard cam and install in front grill. All it need is mini AV RCA extension cable, and tap 12V power (should be plenty under dashboard like NAV unit). I will post it.
I have done few good modifications in my 2001 Prius (remote control heater, flipping back seat etc) and post it on Prius forum.

A year + later since this thread was active. How did this project go, if it went at all? Another thought that entered my mind is to use a pair of those license plate frame parking cams, dunno if those would tend to overheat (i've heard some are designed only for brief on time), and have them feed some centralized DVR (rather than just a view monitor).

Did You ever get the internal Leif factory fitted cameras to be able to be recorded?
