Rexing V1 2.7" Dash Camera - Review and Install

So I finally decided to purchase a dash camera with the crazy stories I have seen on here about hit'n runs, not at-fault accidents and rims getting stolen I thought it was time to install one. Just a quick background I purchased both the dash camera and the micro sd card from Amazon the links are below. I went with the Rexing because I hate the suction cup dash camera look so wanted something that would be almost hard to see.




Total came out to 111.62

Install Time: 30-45 minutes

I have removed my interior trim before when I wrapped my interior so that made things a little bit easier. It is very simple there are only 2 screws the rest are clips that just need to be popped out. If you need further help with removing the interior trim check this video out










Removing the trim




Running the power cable through


Check this video out to access the cabin air filter compartment. Here is the



Now let me just show a quick layout of where I ran the cable through.












This was by far the hardest part to get the wire through I ended up using a coat hanger to snake it through it was a tight fit.


Sorry this is just a picture of the pillar but all I did at this part was tuck the wire in with a flat head screw driver.


Tucked wire into head liner, this part was very easy the headliner was not that difficult to pry to slip the wire.


Since I don't use the 12V power outlet in the arm rest console I unscrewed it and just zip tied it below.


Used some electric tape to secure the power connection so no chance of it loosening up.



Zip tied the extra power cable to some existing cables.


Camera mounted and powered


Outside view


Below are some clips that I pulled, the quality of the video is more grainy then what it actually is since the camera records in 1080p. I think upload caused it to appear the way it does and I also had to remove the audio because I had music playing YouTube kept giving copyright notices.

Great writeup, thanks for posting this! Does anyone have any specific experiences where the dash cam in their 9th gen Accord came in handy (enough to justify the cost)?

I have two near misses right here from my last car. Plus one I'm not posting for legal reasons where some idiot pulled out in front of me in a parking lot and I did hit him

Been thinking about adding one to the rear since I installed and it turned out so good, did you just by a splitter for the 12V power supply for the power cable?

The way people drive on the roads in Virginia I think it justifies the cost, you never know what could happen. Also in the long run if I ever decide to sell the car or want to mount it on another car I can do that.
For me I look it as if I were to modify the suspension - coilovers, bagged or springs, buying some rims, exhaust and etc(Not saying any of these things are bad I want to do these too to my car but not right now). Stuff like that I could not justify unless I could afford it but since this was $100 and can be universally put anywhere without any fitment or compatibility issues I say it was worth it.

I soldered the 12V DC car connector to some wire leads for each camera tapped them together and then tapped those onto the center console 12V just like you did.

That link didn't work. Looks like it may have been through taptalk. Do you have a direct link? Considering a dash cam for my 2016 EX-L.
