Do you mean tap off the same line? From memory, BMWs don't like that? Not 100% sure, but i do recall reading it. That being said, running to fuse box is essentially the same I guess?

Perhaps ask in the modifications forum section?

I tapped off the compass on the mirror for my radar but for the dashcam, tapped the ACC+ at the mirror/compass and Batt+ at the fusebox.

I'll write up a quick review on that when I get a chance.

I must say, it is very worth the money.
Hey Feng, could you provide us with a review of Cellink Battery B? I'm considering the battery pack over PMP since i don't want to put too much stress on the car battery. Cheers!

This is a silly question but do I have to disconnect the negative battery terminal before connecting the PMP to the positive battery terminal connection as described? Just making sure.

What effect does disconnecting the battery terminals have on the car?

it's not necessary to connect to battery anymore. I find that the PMP is not that good either (if you read through the whole thread). I am yet to have time to take off my trims etc to take pictures of how my Cellink is wired up but i will soon.

For those who are interested in the cellink, it works best if you drive 45 minutes+ a day. For me who drives 10 minutes (one way) to work, its hard to get the full 15+ hours of recording.

Finally, after months of procrastination, I finished hardwiring my dashcam/cellink B to the fuse box.

Can take a pic if you don't figure it out.

Many thanks, I used the same point that is a bolt facing upward , I added a 5mm nut to fix the grounding cable.

I think so. I cut the grounding clip and wedged it against the body of the car (from memory).
