FITCAMX Integrated Dash Cam Review in my EV6 - Looks OEM!

8153 Views 121 Replies 28 Participants Last post by  TechnicallyJeff
I installed the new FITCAMX Integrated Dash Cam in my EV6 and I have to say I'm a huge fan. It is good quality and the phone app works well, and it literally looks OEM. And it's well under $200 for the front 4K dash cam after my NOW 10% OFF promo code. This is one of my mods I'm most excited about.


UPDATE! I'm giving one away! Good luck 馃榾

No problem. I got this 256 gb off amazon for $15 and use it - https://amzn.to/3I3PdR9
The manual says it only supports 128gb. Have you noticed any issues with the larger card?

Yeah I remember seeing that, but no I've had no issues.
Some folks may argue that it's overkill or not really needed, but for dashcam applications the preference is to use a card that can better stand up to the elements--especially high temps. I use this one in mine:

I wonder how it will hold up in the Phoenix heat as many dash cams can't handle the temps you're going to get right by the windshield in June-Aug

Hopefully it does pretty well. It does have a lot slots for air dissipation.
Just ordered mine, seems its shipping from China. How long did any of you have to wait for it to come in?

1-2 weeks depending on where you live in the USA. Not too long.

About 1 week to Southern California.

Ten days to Arizona. Just got mine and will install it this weekend.

Took about a week. Plus I had to have them send a replacement Y cable, which took another 4-5 business days. Not terrible. I've had things shipped domestically that have taken longer.

Be aware, they don't do a version for UK/right hand drive at the moment. It all hinges on the position of the cut out for the mirror and a ventilation grille. I enquired directly to Fitcamx in anticipation for when I get my EV6.
Was there any response?

They told me they are working on a RHD version and will let me know when it's available.
So far, mine seems to be reliably recording data every time I drive the car. Connecting to the app is pretty hit and miss. I just put a new card in mine and sat in the driveway for 10 minutes trying to get it to connect, and it wouldn't. But the old card had recording of the last time I drove.

Make sure you phone stays connected to the dash cam wifi. Usually the issue is the phone disconnects because it doesn't provide data.

Yeah, I couldn't even get the dash cam WiFi to show up in my available networks. Wondering if my home WiFi is interfering. I'll try again when I'm out of range.
I just figured out what I was doing wrong. My phone auto-connects to my home WiFi, as designed, but that wasn't the issue. When I was trying to connect with the camera while connected to my network, the app kept sending me to Bluetooth connections to make sure I was connected to the camera, and it wasn't appearing there. I wasn't really paying attention to the fact that everything on the list was Bluetooth, not WiFi. Which is why I wasn't seeing the camera show up. If I go into my WiFi list, the camera is there. I have to disconnect from my home network to connect to the camera, but that's fine for the occasion that might be necessary. Apparently operator error, not an issue with the device itself.

Glad you figured it out 馃憤
installed mine today. thanks for all the information on this forum which makes the installation go smoothly! @TechnicallyJeff @rkr and others. Especially want to thank @David m for chatting with me over the phone for half an hour and going over the whole process! If I can add one more tip, that will be to go with the passenger side instead of the driver side for the rear cam wire routing. There are fewer wires going through the rubber hose on the liftgate, so you will have an easier time running the wire through.
I would also like to thank @TechnicallyJeff for his install video and call out the efforts that @David m has made to helping others get the rear cam installed. He spent a half hour on the phone with me as well, walking me through the process of routing the cable to the back of the car. I may have figured it out on my own, eventually, but his help likely saved me an hour or two of my time and sanity. He's a real asset to this community.

And @rukh79, I followed your advice about taking the passenger side route and found it fairly easy to get the wire through the grommet/hose in the lift-gate. Compared to what @David m described having to deal with on the driver side, this seems like the best way to go.

in my current ICE, I installed a rear camera on the roof (liner) not the rear window. I did this so that when the boot is open, the camera still has the regular view. I did this without any glue or damage by sticking a strong magnet under the headliner, then sticking the camera to one of those metal plates that sticks to the back of a mobile phone (for attaching to a magnetic holder). Then the plate simply holds to the magnet through the headliner.
Mine's installed, along with the rear cam. I went along the passenger side too and didn't have any issues.

One thing I noticed, though. On the first page of this thread it was mentioned that it was saving in MP4 and that the last recording when the power goes off is getting corrupted. And, that there was a firmware update to change the file type to TS which could just be cut off.

However, this model is still recording in MP4 and has the same issue with corrupted files. The firmware version is in a different format, so I wonder if the dual cam hardware is different. I have TY675SLA307A..20230320. I suppose I'll contact them; they should just put firmware updates on the web site.
