Power Tap-in Loom + Nextbase Dashcam Hardwire Kit

for Land Rover Defender L663

This listing is for a plug and play power tap-in loom plus Nextbase Dashcam hardwire kit for the Land Rover Defender L663.

This kit includes:

  • Powerful UK custom 'plug and play' power tap in loom for overhead console
  • Genuine Nextbase Dashcam Hardwire kit

e have pre-wired these items together for you so this is a plug and play solution - no cutting or wiring skills needed.

A ferrite core is also supplied fitted (double pass-through) which helps suppress any interference - we have also added a 2 Amp inline fuse.

The custom made tap-in loom simply plugs into the front overhead console and gives you the power feed ( 12v Permanent Live ) you need but without the need for any alteration/cutting/splicing to your vehicles wiring (which may void your warranty).

This kit is ideal to wire in a dash-cam as it puts power to where you'll mount the camera without having to route any long wires round the screen (plus you'd still need to find somewhere to take power from).

We have wired the tap-in loom to a Nextbase wiring kit which gives you a 5v mini USB connector that can you plug directly into your compatible Nextbase dashcam ( Dashcam not supplied ).

The tap-in loom uses a permanent live and the Nextbase control box will put the camera to sleep unless one of the following happens :-

a) You start the car engine - normal mode

b) There is movement sensed ( shock sensor ) - parking mode

c) The car moves ( GPS sensor )

In addition the control box has a battery save feature that will cut power to the camera if the battery voltage drops - this prevents the camera causing a flat battery if the car is left in an airport car park for 2 weeks etc

Using this permanent feed allows the dashcam to operate when the vehicle is not in use - "parking mode" (for surveillance purposes).

All you need to do is feed the wire through the headlining at the top of the windscreen into the roof space - we found a flexi ruler ideal for this!

We also sell the power tap-in loom on it's own - see our other listing to purchase separately.

This is not a genuine Land Rover product.

Fitting details

  • Disconnect your battery +ve lead (under the drivers seat) before fitting the loom to the vehicle - this makes it less likely for power surges that could damage car circuits when plugging / unplugging the overhead console.
  • The battery positive feed comes via fuse 31 (5 Amps )  in the fusebox behind the glove box.
  • If you have any issues with your car that needs investigation by a Land Rover dealer it is best to disconnect this loom so the vehicle is returned to its original configuration.
