In this dashcam installation photo gallery, we go over the final product of hardwiring the new dual-lens, dual 1080p full HD BlackVue DR750S-2CH dashcam in a 2014 Ford Raptor F-150.

The vehicle now protected with the "Dashcam Defense": 2014 SVT Ford Raptor F150. We're fans of the quality and reliability that the BlackVue brand brings to its dashcams, and we were stoked to perform our first installation of the brand new for 2017 BlackVue DR750S-2CH dashcam on this lovely Raptor.
Big thank you again to Craig R. for allowing us to work on your truck!
Looking in from outside of the front windshield, it's actually quite difficult to see that this truck is equipped with what is likely the best dashcam on the market today.
Love those matte black graphics on the hood! Good job to the folks over at the SVT division at Ford, this truck is awesome in both aesthetics and performance.
Catching a peek at that front camera of the BlackVue system, it can be argued that this camera looks like a factory-installed accessory.
Now looking in from the driver side door, you can see how the dashcam sits in relation to the rear-view mirror.
The BlackVue DR750S-2CH front camera fits perfectly in front of the mirror. The design and compact size of the dashcam means zero impact on driver or passenger visibility out of the front windshield.
In this photo, you see a first view of the Power Magic Pro installed in the glove box. The Power Magic Pro enables "parking mode" recording (an awesome security feature of the BlackVue dashcams), while at the same time keeping an eye on your battery voltage to ensure it does not get too low while the engine is off.
A closer look at the front camera and Power Magic Pro in the glove box. In case it's hard to spot, we've added an arrow to the Power Magic Pro!
From the perspective of the driver, the front camera is entirely invisible.
Yes, there really is a dashcam installed on the windshield! The arrow points the way here.
Moving over to the passenger side of the Raptor.
To the untrained eye, it's easy to mistake a BlackVue dashcam for an OEM component. The matte black finish and clean lines mean the dashcam blends in well, and doesn't attract any unwanted attention.
Our technicians have added braided sleeving over the power and video cables to tidy up the installation. On this side of the dashcam, you see the WiFi/format button and the memory card cover/door.
Looking again at the glove box, we've mounted the Power Magic Pro so that it's easy to reach, and it is also out of the way of all those items that end up being kept in the glove box.
Close up of the override switch, LED light, and dip-switches of the Power Magic Pro Remember folks, one up, four down for optimal performance!
Now we're inside the truck, looking back at the rear window glass. On the left (passenger) side, we see the 1080p HD rear-facing camera lens. On this F-150 the lens is mounted here since the center glass sides open towards the driver side of the truck.
The LED light on the rear camera lens can be disabled, and don't worry that it looks like the camera is upside down; the DR750S-2CH settings allow you to invert the image from the rear camera, which provides more flexibility when it comes time to installing the system. Pretty cool feature, thanks BlackVue!
From outside of the rear glass, it's virtually impossible to see the rear camera.
We love this truck! Thanks again Craig!
