In this dashcam installation example photo gallery, we share the completed installation pictures of the new affordably-priced, dual-lens (for front and rear video recording), dual 720p HD BlackVue DR430-2CH GPS-ready dash cam and Power Magic Pro in a Honda CR-V SUV. This installation was performed by The Dashcam Store™ technicians in Austin, Texas. Thank you again Mr. R!

Let's start with a photo of the BlackVue DR430-2CH front and rear cameras, and retail packaging:
The example vehicle now protected with the "Dashcam Defense" - a 2001 Honda CR-V (CRV):
Looking in from the outside at the BlackVue DR430-2CH front camera. The front camera unit contains the industrial-grade BlackVue microSD memory card. It's hard to tell there is a dashcam there!
The BlackVue DR430-2CH front dash cam hides entirely in front of the rear-view mirror, for super-stealth video recording out the front window:
From the inside of the vehicle, you can see how the BlackVue DR430-2CH front dash cam is completely out of the view of the driver. Set it and forget it, knowing you're "protected by dashcam"!
We mounted the optional GPS antenna (for position and speed logging) at the top of the windshield. The antenna is only about an inch and a half long:
Now looking at the DR430-2CH front dashcam from the passenger side of the Honda CR-V. The three wires you see are: power in, video in (from the rear camera), and GPS-in (from the external GPS antenna):
Here we are looking back at the tiny rear-facing camera of the DR430-2CH. The rear camera is only about the size of a Chapstick container! Images from the rear camera are saved to the memory card inside the front camera:
Now a few shots of the DR430-2CH rear camera again but this time from the outside of the vehicle. Unless you are looking specifically for the camera, you would never notice this is there, and you would probably just think it is a backup camera if you did see it!
The BlackVue Power Magic Pro control box (allows you the option to have the camera keep recording while the engine is turned off - known as "parking mode", and also prevents the battery voltage from dropping too low by turning the dashcam off should the voltage drop past an adjustable threshold) is cleanly mounted low on the driver's side dashboard:
One last shot of the CR-V, you have to strain to see the DR430's rear camera:
