Rear Dash Cam Install.

Can I ask has anyone managed to install a rear DashCam to an F Pace and managed to hide the cable, basically running the cable through one of the two existing rubber tubes (Body to Tailgate) and managed to get the cable out near the rear screen.

Managed to fit mine last week,
Fitted at top of rear screen cable travels along glass/trim edge to Offside rear demister wire cover.
(square just pulls off giving access to cavity, Then back out of boot door through one of the yellow clips (1 of 3)
2 small panels un clip for access.
You can feel the end of the yellow clip with a finger to help push out, use middle! This hole was slightly enlarged so power plug fits through with drill.
then into rubber boot tube, then along/underneath rubber boot seal just lifts off (beware messy dark lubricant) to fuse box on O/S boot panel using piggy back fuse so powered on key on.
Used stiff wire to pull through as rubber boot tight, talc helps!
Will post pictures soon.
Found this gave neat finish about 12” of cable on show before being hidden.

Nice neat install. I have a Thinkware F770 fitted to the front screen, however until I find a way of completely hiding the rear cable my rear camera will stay in the Box.

This is the best I have seen so far.

My car is 95% wired for a rear camera, however the cable for the camera lays taped off indside the tailgate. I am just not able to find a way out of the tailgate to the glass area. I was thinking about drilling a hole in the plastic trim underneath where the rear camera would sit, however not sure about this. hence no rear camera.
