Connect the camera cables
2. Connect cable A to the camera.
3. If you ordered an extra storage SD card, place the card into the SD slot.
4. Replace the security cover and leave the key in the lock.
5. Connect cable A to the DC power adaptor.
6. Connect the wiring harness (B) to the DC power adaptor.
7. Connect the wiring harness (B) to the connector cable (C or E) depending on your vehicle type.
Connect the camera to the power source
The camera needs to be connected to a power source.
Before connecting the camera, ensure that the engine is switched off and the DC power adaptor is switched on.
To connect your camera to a power source, you need to use the correct connector for the vehicle.
- For light commercial or private vehicles (12V only), use the OBD-II connector (cable C)
- For heavy trucks (12V only), use the 3-wire connector (cable E)
- For light-duty vehicles manufactured before 1996 or heavy trucks with 6 pin connectors use, use the 3-wire connector (cable E)
Connecting to an OBD-II port (cable C)
1. Locate the port
The location of the OBD-II port varies from vehicle to vehicle. The most common location is to the left of the steering wheel, underneath the dashboard. The diagram shows other possible locations. Go to the Hum website to search by vehicle make, model and year.
2. Firmly connect the cable to the OBD-II port.
Connecting using the 3-wire connector (cable E)
Important: Ensure that the driver door is open during the entire installation process.
If you are adding a 3-wire connected camera to an existing 3-wire connected GPS installation, you can splice into its existing constant, ignition and ground connections or use a stainless ring terminal to make your own ground connection.
We recommended using butt connectors or posit-taps. We do not recommend Add A-Fuse, fuse taps or Scotch lock type connectors for wiring.
Black wire – ground
With the vehicle’s engine off, attach the black wire directly to a chassis ground point or to a ground line (chassis ground) by splicing directly to a ground lead or by using a poke and wrap method (see below).
Red wire – continuous power
With the vehicle’s engine OFF, use the voltmeter to locate a 12-volt battery lead and attach the Red Wire by splicing directly to the lead or by using a poke and wrap method. If attaching to a fused lead or using an in-line fuse (not necessary), verify that it is at least 5 amps.
Be careful not to confuse a retained accessory power (RAP) line with a true continuous power line (12 volt, always online).
To determine a true continuous power source:
- Ensure the driver door is open.
- Select a wire.
- With vehicle’s engine switched off, use a voltmeter to measure the DC voltage on the wire. It should show 12 VDC or higher.
White wire – ignition power
With the vehicle’s engine switched off, use the voltmeter to locate an ignition line with switched power and attach the white wire to the line by splicing directly to the lead or by using a poke and wrap method.
- Do not use an inline fuse on this line.
- Do not use accessory power.
Poke and wrap method
- Locate the correct wire.
- Strip the insulation from a section of the wire.
- Make a hole through the exposed wire
- Insert cable through hole.
- Wrap cable tight and insulate with electrical tape.
- Place zip ties over the electrical tape on each side of the connection.
Switch camera on
When the camera is connected to the power source, switch on the ignition to turn the camera on.
During the camera boot-up process, the red, blue and green lights will flash in sequence.
