Camera Installation

Installing the dash camera:

EASY INSTALL STEPS...
1: Choose camera location, use fitting guide in the manual for help.
2: Clean the screen with some glass cleaner and allow drying time.
3: If possible warm the adhesive pad in your hand, remove adhesive backing from the camera mount and place firmly on the screen, without the camera on.
4: Leave the mount to bond. Recommended bond time is 12 hours.
5: Use the adhesive cable clips to route the power cable neatly around the screen.
6: Attach the camera to the mount and face it forwards. 
7: Plug the power cable in to the camera. 
8: Plug in the cigarette lighter plug.

Aligning the camera:
The RoadHawk camera is fitted with a very wide angled lens. This is to capture as much as what is happening in front of you as possible.
Car Use: Keep the camera as level as possible.
Lorry & Coaches: Tilt downward a little.
Some vehicles have “always on” accessory sockets. We recommend unplugging the camera from these sockets when not in use.
WARNING: 
Never remove the SD card from the camera whilst it is powered on. Always remove the power supply from the camera and wait for the camera to chime to let you know it is safe to remove the SD card.
Hard wire kit
We recommend that you have the camera hard wired by an approved auto electrician; you can find your nearest one by using our approved fitter’s link at the bottom of the page.
If self-fitting, use the RoadHawk hard wiring kit suitable for you camera (never modify the accessory socket power supply as this will invalidate your warranty). Please refer to your Vehicles wiring diagram, (We cannot offer advice on how to wire the kit)

Motorcycle mounting
The tray mounts can be fixed to the framework, please note that the area will need to ne vibration free so fairings may not have enough rigidity; this can seriously affect the video quality and camera life. For more mounting options please contact our sales team who have access to a wide range of aftermarket fittings.
