Dash Cam Suction Cup Installing Tips : How To’s :

  • Clean Dry Surfaces Work Best

Make sure both the inside of the suction cup and your windshield are clean and dry. To clean both surfaces, I like to use rubbing alcohol since it tends to dry quickly, although glass cleaners will work well too. Particularly if your mount has recently fallen you might see a “ring around the mount” on your windshield. So make sure both surfaces are clean and dry.

  • Temperature Can Have an Impact Too

The more similar the temperatures are between the mount and windshield, and the closer those temperatures are to “room” temperature, the better results you will have.

  • A Little Moisture Can Help Keep the Seal

A tiny bit of water (not drenched) on the suction cup can help it keep the seal. Spread the drops of water around with your finger.  A tiny bit of Petroleum Jelly (aka Vaseline) can work really well too. The key is to not get too much moisture… just barely enough to coat the surface.

  • Apply Firm Pressure and Hold

Find your target on the windshield, press it on, and apply firm pressure to the center of the mount. What you are doing, and want to do, is to push all of the trapped air between the mount and the windshield out from behind the mount.  Try not to let the mount slide (if it slides easily you might have used too much moisture) and keep firm pressure for about fifteen seconds.

  • Mount Camera with gave glue strips

Make a point to line up mount uniformly, so the feature seems level, and verify that cam perspective is clear of hindrances.

Bring violators to justice using a Dashcamera and “Public Eye”

Report bad drivers 100% anonymously and for free in the safety and comfort of your home or office. Take photos, upload the pictures, name and shame them. You are not only getting rid of your stress due to others negligence or arrogance, but making sure they are punished by the right authority.

So what do YOU do if someone does something reckless or just plain stupid to you? Do nothing. Let it go! As difficult as it seems, just smile & relax…and know that you can get your own back. Report them online at “PUBLIC EYE”. A very convenient and well thought out service provided by our very own Bangalore Traffic Police. The Traffic Police has been gearing to meet various challenges. On one hand efforts are on to increase the man power, acquire new equipment and vehicles. While on the other hand upgrading the skills of existing manpower through various refresher and behavior sensitization courses as their top priority. But please, do not try and take photos or videos on your cellphone while you’re driving…. that’s why you have a dashcam!
