Approved vehicles and mount positions
Your Hivemapper Dashcam needs a great spot to see the world. For cars and e-bikes that are approved, there are four cool places you can put it. Think of your dashcam as a little buddy who loves looking out the window.
If it’s checking out the road ahead, stick it high up on your windshield so it can peek over those tinted windows. Now if you’ve got two dashcams (yep, that’s totally okay!), one can be like a sidekick facing forward while another watches everything on the side.
Mounting these gadgets is easy-peasy but super important because they need to catch all those details from sidewalks and buildings without dashboard objects or tinted windows getting in their way.
Just make sure they’re snug so they don’t go bouncing around when you hit a bump! And hey, angling them slightly up from the dashboard gives them just the right view of what’s ahead––like giving them front-row seats to an awesome show!
How to mount
Mounting your Hivemapper Dashcam is a piece of cake! Just pick one of the four approved spots on your car. If you’re going for that forward-facing mount, aim high on the windshield to catch lots of sidewalk and buildings.
You want that camera to see as much as possible, right? Now, grab that sticky adhesive from the box or go with a suction cup mount if you like things neat—no mess, no stress.
Snap that dashcam into its spot and press firmly. You got this! No need to drill holes or fiddle with complicated tools. Plus, taking it down’s just as simple if you need to switch cars or clean up.
