I think many of us know what is what regarding '' batteries'' being sent over, but how do they get them in Cyprus in the first place?

We have just installed a Nextbase "5" type dashcam and very happy with it.

I remember that Devil recommended a particular brand of GPS dashcam a little while ago (but can't easily find that post); also that Jim Cross recently purchased a dashcam...just wondered which is considered a 'best buy' brand, as we need to replace our 3 units. We'll be popping over to the UK in the not too distant future, so can have delivered there.
The one I recommended was a Nextcam, but the model is surely obsolete now. In particular, I recommended with GPS, as some insurances like to know exactly where an incident occurs.

I am using a Nextbase 512GW which came in from Amzon.de. They are far from the cheapest but they are good quality and very easy to plumb into the cars fusebox.
It does of course have GPS.

OK but where did you buy the cameras from, Cyprus?

I would never have orders sent by sea you would have to wait too long.

Nextbase dashcams also would not send to Cyprus via Amazon DE, in red alongside the items, also they seem rather too expensive.

Delivery Details
This item does not ship to Cyprus.

https://www.micksgarage.com/home seem to despatch to CY from Ireland. Some models a tad dearer than Amazon.

Here's a link for the Nextbase 512 on Amazon: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Nextbase-Camer ... s=nextbase You can pay more and get the hard wired installation kits, but we already have those. We'll almost certainly go for the 412GW.

You're right Jim about Amazon not shipping from the UK, but we're popping over to the UK anyway, so will bring back with us. Table below shows the differences between the various Nextbase models.

Would you mind providing a link to those companies? I might want to use their services.

RSS in Peyia is one company, UK CY is the other: Lee +357 96 533839 E-mail: lhukcy@hotmail.com. I haven't used either company, but I believe both are good.

Jim
I did get mine from Amazon.de last summer and now see it says no delivery to Cyprus.
On checking the reasons for items not accepted for shipping, it may be up to the individual retailer as Cyprus shows under a list of countries to which shipment can be made.

Are they straight forward to wire in to your cars fuse box or best to use an auto electrician?

You took the words out of my mouth Jamboal. There is no way I could rig this up for myself, so would like any recommendations for those who can. Or would they prefer me to buy the product from them??

It is very easy to do basically running the power cable behind the trim, tucking it out of sight as necessary. Some of the trim will likely just lever away though to tuck the wire behind. The fuze box connection is simply find a suitable amperage fuze and insert in a provided convertor so that, that particular fuze supplies two items.You should be able to find a few Youtube instructions as well.
really is very simple to do.
Probably took me somewhere between 10 and 15 mins on a Vauxhall Insignia, and I had never done a similar job before.

bromerzz, many thanks for your helpful instructions, but your talking to an accountant!! A female at that! I can only do numbers!!
You lost me after 'the trim'!?, Guess I need to take it to an auto electrician. But would he/she be happy to fit a dashcam I bought off the Internet??

If it means they earn a few €'s for a very easy fit then of course they will.

Certainly will Jacs! We took our vehicles to the auto electricians in Tremithousa. Really good people.
