Installation Steps

The following steps provide an overview of the installation process:

  1. Install Preparation.
  2. Device Mounting.
  3. Harness Installation.
  4. Verify and Secure Installation.

  1. 1. Install preparation.

    Locate the camera, cleaning wipes, dry cloth, power harness, insulated crimper, dash panel removal tools, wire stripper, ring terminal, two butt connectors, and a pen.

    1. Record the 8-digit serial number (S/N) of the camera onto your paperwork.
      Camera Serial Number locations:
    2. Remove a-pillar plastic and dashboard panels for harness installation.
    3. Identify the mounting location (Do Not Mount):
      1. With Rear View Mirror: Hold the camera directly underneath the mirror and confirm the location will not affect the use of the mirror nor will windshield dot-matrix impede camera visibility.
      2. Without Rear View Mirror: Hold camera to the very top of the windshield, in the center.
      3. Angled/Split Windshield: Hold camera to the top and approximately ~3 inches from the center divider of the passangers windshield.
    4. Using the cleaning wipes and dry cloth, thoroughly clean the Driveri device, mounting area and the dashboard where the GPS antenna will be mounted – near the windshield and a-pillar plastic.
    5. Power Harness preparation:
      1. Cut the Red, White and Black wires, and remove 1/2 in. (13 mm) from the wires leading to the device and twist the wire strands of each wire. Tape off the unused wires.
      2. Remove 1/2 in. (13 mm) of insulation from the ends of each inline fuse holder, then crimp a fuse holder to the Red and White wires and ring terminal to the Black wire before you apply heat to all three.
      3. Insert the 2A fuse into the White wire fuse holder and 5A fuse into the Red wire fuse holder.
    6. Connect the power harness to the camera and screw the cover back into place.

  2. 2. Device Mounting.

    Locate the camera, torpedo level, dry erase/wax tip marker, heat gun, marker, and side cutters.

    The internal facing camera has a lens cover and an LED on both sides of the camera lens.

    1. Remove the VHB plastic exposing the adhesive and apply heat to the tape. Be sure to not overheat and shrink the tape.
    2. Ensuring the device is absolutely level, mount the device by firmly pressing the bracket to the windshield in the location explained in Step 1.3.
    3. DO NOT apply pressure to the camera itself, only apply pressure to the bracket to make sure all air bubbles are removed.

  3. 3. Harness Installation.

    Locate the multimeter, cordless drill, 5/16″ in. (8 mm) driver bit, wire stripper, insulated crimper, harness, six cable ties, and self-taping screw.

    1. Route the harness and antenna cable up along side the existing mirror wires, secure with cable ties, and tuck the cables into the headliner as you route them to the a-pillar.
    2. DO NOT cross over or block the a-pillar airbag as you route the harness and antenna cable down the a-pillar securing with cable ties as you go.

    3. Route the antenna cable between the windshield and a-pillar plastic. Remove the VHB plastic exposing the adhesive, and press the antenna to the dashboard. Once complete, put the a-pillar plastic back into place.
    4. Locate a suitable location on the chassis to attach the device Black/ground wire.
      1. After confirming there is nothing behind the mounting location, screw the ring terminal to the chassis.
    5. Remove the keys from the ignition and locate a vehicle wire that provides between 12 and 17 VDC (+).
      • This will be the harness Red wire power source connection.
    6. The device is not rated for more than 17 VDC (+) and draws ~3Amps when active, so you must make sure the circuit will support this current draw and you do not exceed the max device voltage threshold.

    7. Complete the following steps to poke and wrap the connection:
      1. Remove 1 in. (2.5 cm) of insulation from the vehicle wire identified and poke something nonconductive through the exposed wires to create a loop and insert the exposed Red wire strands into the loop.
      2. Squeeze the loop shut, and tightly wrap the bare wire around the exposed wire at least three times.
      3. Fold the wire back and generously wrap electrical tape around the connection, crossing over the insulation on both sides.
      4. Secure the connection with one cable tie directly over the wire-to-wire connection and another cable tie on a stress loop created about 1 in. (2.5 cm) away from the connection.
    8. Locate a vehicle wire which provides at least 12 VDC (+) and 17 VDC (+) while the vehicle is On and running and 0 VDC (+) when the key is in the Off and Accessory position.
      • This will be the harness White wire power source connection.
      1. Repeat Step 5: A-D to make the proper connection.

  4. 4. Verify and Secure Installation.

    Locate the smartphone, remaining cable ties, wire cutter, and tamper seal.

    1. To verify the camera is properly aimed, complete the following steps on your smartphone.
      1. Start the vehicle and open the Driver-i Installer App on your phone.

        The camera takes ~60 seconds to fully power up.

      2. Enter the provided username, password, device serial number. Once connected, click the Camera option.
      3. When aiming the camera, ensure the device is angled properly when a small amount of the hood is visible on standard hood vehicles or level in vehicles with flat nose hoods.
        • Standard vehicle hood:
        • Flat nose vehicle hood:
      4. Tighten the two mounting bracket screws, and proceed to the Run Diagnostics option where you will enter the vehicle and other information before clicking submit and registering the device.
      5. Upon completion of the app, press the Driver Alert button for final verification. .
    2. Remove the internal camera lens cover, secure any loose cables with cable ties and place tamper seal on all connections.
