How to hardwire a BlackVue Power Magic Pro

 Make sure the engine is off and accessory power is off before proceeding.

1) Set the voltage and timer switches

Refer to the Power Cut-Off Settings above and set the switches according to your requirements.

 

2) Connect the red ACC(+)wire to a Switched fuse

Referring to your vehicle Owner's Manual/Handbook, identify a Switched (accessory power) fuse in your interior fuse panel. Typical examples are the cigarette lighter and car stereo fuse slots.

Remove the identified Switched fuse. Many cars come with a fuse puller tool in the engine compartment fuse panel.

Remove the sleeve from the end of the red ACC(+) wire, and wrap the wire around one of the blades of the Switched fuse. Reinsert the fuse back into the fuse panel.

 

3) Connect the yellow BATT(+) wire to a Constant Power fuse

Identify a Constant Power (battery power) fuse in your fuse panel. Typical Constant Power fuses are the hazard light (emergency lamp), tail lights and interior light fuses. If your car has a “Battery Saver Function” please utilize the hazard light fuse.

Remove the identified Constant Power fuse. Remove the sleeve from the end of the yellow BATT(+) wire, and wrap the wire around one of the blades of the Constant Power fuse. Reinsert the fuse back into the fuse panel.

 

4) Connect the black GND wire to a ground point

Locate a ground point, such as a bolt, that is directly on a bare metal part of the vehicle's frame. Secure the ground wire to the bare metal frame (for example by securing it under the bolt).

 

5) Plug your dashcam's power plug into the cigarette lighter socket on the wire harness

To ensure good electrical contact you can use electrical tape to tape the plug and socket together.

 

6) Plug the wire harness into the Power Magic Pro

Plug the wire harness in and check that the Parking Mode Switch turns the LED on/off. Start your engine and check that the dashcam is powered when the Parking Mode Switch is both ON and OFF.

 

7) Fix the Power Magic Pro in place

Secure any excess wire and fix your Power Magic Pro in place using the supplied double-sided tape and/or screws.
