Hi

Having done heaps of research have taken the plunge and ordered a Mazda CX-30 for delivery in September once the new registrations kick in.

Gone for the 180ps 2WD GT Sport Tech Auto SkyActiv-X model in Sould Red Crystal Metallic, with a few small extras added.

Got a great deal from my local dealer who not only looked after me financially but made the experience what it should be when buying a new car - unlike some dealers I spoke to where the experience was far from pleasant.

Looking forward to getting the car and making her my own.

Would like to fit a front and rear dashcam but dont think mazda make their own model so will have to do some research.

Hi Steve

Thanks for this. DO you have this in your CX-30 - and if so is it hard wired or through the 12v socket?\\G

I moved my BlackVue dual channel dash cam set from my old Mazda 6 when I traded it in - the dealer fit it (and did a really good job I might add) for 100 quid.

You wont regret it, great car !!!! took me about 20 mins to install both my front and rear dash cams, wired into the fuse box with the nextbase hardwire kit, all i had to remove and replace was a bit of door seal, scuff trims and a bit of tucking here and there !

here are a few quick pictures, the cable just lips into the headlining and down the door pillar, under the passenger chair and connected into the centre console usb, i used a 7m mini usb cable.
the camera is small and out of the way, has worked for me and my son for 3 yrs plus., the data was used when a car clipped the mirror off our cx3,the camera is hd , good night vision and full gps,etc., the newer verion is even better.

Thanks for the info - am picking up the car Saturday so will try to get something arranged asap. On a different note - if I want to use the Apple Car Play I believe I have to use the USB Plug rather than wirelessly - any idea if you need a long or short lead for this? Cant see from the photos where the phone would sit

Hi you can put an android or apple phone at the front console in front of the gear shift where there is a little recess (in which case use a short USB lead) or inside the arm rest. Both USB connections support music / video playback (video mp4 if car is stopped) and android / apple.
