When we noticed room for improvement of an existing system, we crafted a custom solution. After several design and engineering meetings, multiple prototypes, and plenty of testing, we're happy to introduce another exclusive product you won't find anywhere else: the Offset Bracket for BlackVue, Thinkware, VIOFO or other brand of dash cam system with interior-facing IR cameras.
Essentially, our new offset bracket increases the distance between the inside-facing camera lens and the windshield.
The offset bracket improves the view into the cabin. The reason why is simple: BlackVue, Thinkware and VIOFO's nightvision interior-facing camera lenses are wide-angle, and in many vehicles, if this lens is mounted directly on the windshield glass, it's easy for things like the top of the rear view mirror and the bottom of the headliner to "get in the way" of a clear interior image. By offsetting the lens from the glass (pushing it slightly "further" into the interior), you're creating a better vantage point for the inside-facing camera lens to "see" into the cabin of the vehicle.
Our offset bracket has an angled top surface, which makes it adaptable to numerous angles of windshields and mounting locations.
Choose from either a discreet black offset bracket, or a transparent/clear offset bracket. One bracket is included per purchase, select the color above.
A new adhesive pad comes pre-installed on the bottom of the offset bracket, which attaches the bracket to your windshield glass. You will then use your own adhesive pad to attach the IR-camera to the offset bracket.
