Dash cam and warrantees

Post by Shmax » Sun Aug 26, 2018 10:18 pm

Hi. I’ve been told by my local dealer that Land Rover don’t fit dash cams hard wired in and if I have it done it will invalidate the warrantee. Has anyone heard this or found a way of getting one hard wired without invalidating the warrantee?

In essence, no.

The warranty will be invalid if it’s hardwired and something to do with the electrics plays up. They will automatically void it until you remove hardwire and then it becomes in warranty again. I know, I ended up with this problem and it caused me a lot of grief. The dealership and LR automatically blamed the hardwire. I removed it and the fault persisted, they then fixed it.

The moral of the story is if you hardwire it, remove it prior to taking it into the dealership or fix it up to a 12v socket, then they can’t argue.
