BlackboxMyCar | Dash Cam Installation: 2022 Porsche 992 4 GTS x BlackVue DR900X-2CH Plus

This photo blog will show how we installed a BlackVue DR900X Plus 2-Channel dash cam into a 2022 Porsche 922 4 GTS. If you're considering installing a dash cam, we recommend the Blackbox MyCar Essential Install Kit. The BlackboxMyCar Essential Install Kit comes with a circuit tester, trim remover tool, and other handy tools to make the hardwiring and installation process more manageable.

The BlackVue DR900X Plus 2-Channel is BlackVue’s top-tier dual-channel Cloud dash cam that delivers 4K UHD front and 1080p Full HD rear video quality. BlackVue’s Cloud service, a free add-on service for Cloud-compatible BlackVue dash cams, is among the best in the industry, offering features like remote live view and video playback, two-way voice call, and more.

Parking mode is probably one of the most important features a dash cam offers and requires a little more attention. To properly run parking mode, you will need a continuous power supply to your dash cam when you car is parked and powered down. There are a couple of ways to achieve that if you have a BlackVue dash cam - one is to hardwire the dash cam to your car’s fuse panel, and the other is to use a dedicated dash cam battery pack.

For car owners who want the maximum protection because they often park their vehicle(s) for long periods, we strongly recommend a dedicated dash cam battery pack - they are the best power solution for a dash cam without affecting the life and performance of the car battery.

Step 1: Locate the power source

Always refer to your vehicle’s owners manual

The owner of this Porsche requested an installation with parking surveillance. There are different ways to install a dash cam for parking mode recording, and for this Porsche, we went with a hardwire installation. The first step is to locate the fuse panel - and the best way is to consult the logbook of your Porsche.

There should be a few fuse panels inside the car you can use: the under the dashboard on the driver’s side, and under the dashboard on the passenger side. There’s also a fuse panel in the engine compartment, right next to the car battery. We used the fuse panel in the passenger footwell.

If you want parking mode recording but do not want to tinker with the car’s fuse panel(s), we strongly recommend getting a dedicated dash cam battery pack. The BlackboxMyCar PowerCell 8 Battery is slim enough to be stowed inside the vehicle, and you can always plug it into a 12V outlet (i.e., a cigarette lighter socket) in your car.

Step 2: Mount the BlackVue DR900X Plus front camera

The ideal place for the front camera is behind the rearview mirror

The ideal place to mount the forward-facing camera is behind the rearview mirror because it gives the dash cam the best, unobstructed view while staying out of the driver’s line of sight. Luckily, BlackVue’s signature slender cylindrical shape makes it easy to position the DR900X Plus behind the rearview mirror.

Don’t forget to check how far the wiper goes because if you mount the front-facing camera above the wiper's reach, it will not have a clear vision. You don't want to have your dash cams installed in an area outside of the range of your windshield wiper coverage; else, on a rainy or snowy day, the camera lens will not be able to capture video. Clean the windshield from the inside of the car to ensure the camera sticks properly and to clean off any marks or smears that might affect the video quality of your footage.

Take the 3-wire hardwiring cable and plug the adapter end into the power port on the side of the DR900X Plus dash cam. Tuck the hardwiring cable around the console, then along the headliner to the A-pillar on the passenger side of the vehicle.

Step 3: Run the dash cam power cable down the A-pillar to the fuse panel

Use the provided trim removal tool to gently pull back the panel cover

Always, always route the hardwiring cable behind the airbags. Cable-tie your power cable along the back side of the existing cables that run down the A-pillar. Run the power cable down the A-pillar until you reach the passenger footwell.

Step 4: Locating the correct fuse for the hardwire installation

Always refer to the vehicle’s owners manual to avoid fuse slots that could pertain to certain safety features within your vehicle.

The hardwiring kit for the DR900X Plus is a 3-wire cable. Connect the red wire (the ACC wire) to a constant fuse (12V power) and the yellow wire (the Battery wire) to an ignition switch (12V source). The black wire with the C-shaped connector is the ground wire, which should be grounded to an unpainted metal bolt or stud in the vehicle.

Always refer to the Fuses section in the vehicle's owner's manual to avoid fuse slots that could pertain to certain safety features within your car.

Using the circuit testing in the BlackboxMyCar Essential Install Package, locate a suitable continuous power fuse for the red/ACC wire and an ignition fuse for the yellow. You can look for the empty fuse slots or ones you can piggyback off using the add-a-fuse kit included in the Essential Install Package.

Take the extra cable and hide it in the passenger footwell. We recommend using zip ties and wire tape to keep it all tidy.

Step 5: Running the rear camera connecting cable to the rear of the vehicle

We ran the rear connecting cable along the ABC pillars on the right side of the car

Plug the rear camera connecting cable into the front unit, run the cable along the headliner, and straight down the length of the car to the A, B, and C pillars.

Carefully remove the side weatherstrip from the front and rear doors. Use the trim removal tool to lift the pillar trim slightly, and remove any mounting clips under the pillar by gently pulling the panel cover.

Remember, don’t just stuff the cable under the rubber seal because it will create a little gap that might prevent the door from sealing properly - you will get wind noise, or worse, water can seep into the car.

When you get to the rear windshield, route the cable along the rear windshield headliner until you get to the rear camera.

Plug the connecting cable into the rear camera and power on your car to turn on the dash cam. Once your BlackVue DR900X Plus is powered on, turn on WiFi on the dash cam and connect it to the dash cam using the app to check the angle of the front and rear cameras and adjust as needed.

Use the Live View feature to check the viewing angle of the front and rear cameras and adjust if needed.


And there you have it, a BlackVue DR900X Plus installed in a 2022 Porsche 922 4 GTS. From the outside, looking in from the front of the vehicle, the DR900X Plus front-facing and rear-facing cameras blend in well with the car.
