I've installed the Mobius Stealth in 5 cars & had good performance out of it given it's form factor/cost.

Do not continue without first disconnecting the battery! Your presets/settings should be retained. In my case they were...

I used my hands to pull the cover out. A plastic panel removal tool should be perfect for this. My advice here is take your time and be patient with this. It's a bit tricky and fiddly.

Here you can see what's going on behind the cover. Apparently Subaru has updated some of the hardware for retaining/fitting the "A" pillar covers. I took delivery of my Onyx late Dec. 2019.

I used a metal panel-puller tool slipped behind the orange retainer to rotate it and line-up with the hole in the "A" pillar cover. It rotates 90 degrees to retain/remove cover.

There's more room to work on removing this "A" pillar cover retaining strap. I just rotated/twisted it out of the slot on the cover to remove it.

There are certainly better dash cams out there, but for about $130.00 U.S. for the kit, it shoots good enough video for my purposes. It has a very small form factor, wide angle lens and is powered by capacitor, so it can handle a lot of heat. You really have to look from the outside to see it's installed. Plus it doesn't obscure the driver's view or the EyeSight cameras. I've now installed this camera in 5 cars. For me in the Los Angeles area, the frequency of near-misses and other bad driving prompted me to install dash cameras. I've recorded 2 hit & runs, (reported to the Highway Patrol) and loads of bone-headed moves including one genius trying to pass me across 3 lanes that spun-out. I've got a pretty good clip collection of crazy stuff. 馃榾

USB cable mounted/routed to avoid airbag. I used some of the included adhesive-backed cable clips here.

I routed the USB cable down an open area through to the back of where the glovebox is.

I made sure that the USB cable was routed and mounted behind the plastic wall that's behind the glovebox such that it won't cause any clicking or rattling. Again, I used some of the adhesive-backed cable clips that are included with the kit.

As noted above, power is switched with the ignition.

Sample daytime still. Camera shoots 1920x1080 @30 f.ps.

Reasonably decent night imaging.
