Anyone here done it on the C7? What radar detector and or dash cam do you use? I believe there's one box up front and one in the trunk?

Do a search for radar detectors, there is a thread that discusses that. I think it is the "official radar detector thread"

i haven't seen any details on how to run wiring back there
The rear fuse panel has a 20 amp fuse, #37, that is switched, it’s the one that powers the power receptacle in front of the shifter. Although initially concerned about the difficulty of using the rear fuse panel, tapping into fuse 37 with an Add-A-Circuit is pretty simple. It is easier then messing with the front fuse panel! Full install details and pics on my web site; netwelding.com/reports_vette_info.htm - -Routed all my wires so they were hidden to a high windshield mount.

I was looking into wiring a dash cam too. Can't believe with all that technology it is not an option on the C7. Let us know what dashcam you are considering. After seeing all the Russian dashcam clips on youtube, I definitely want one.

It will be an option in the 2015 C7 to have it integrated into the car. Check out information on the "PDR" which can double as a dash cam while touring.

I didn't know the PDR could double as a real dash cam while touring, that could be interesting. The top of the line dash cams on the market right now can be hardwired to deliver 24/7 non stop surveillance front and back with a dual setup. You never know what you will caught offcam while parked in public especially with the c7 sighting being such an event. Finevu, Blackvue, and Lukas are the best out there the rest are sub par. I'd like to know if I can hard wire 2 dash cams and a speed detector to the fuse box with a causing a malfunction.

I thought the PDR was only going to be on Z06. In any case, I'm gonna miss that option, maybe I can retro install it. Amazon has a neat one that clips to the rear view mirror and has forward and rear looking cameras. However, I do not want to defeat the features of the original mirror, auto dimming, etc.
