Thank you for this post. Instructions were spot on for my Qashqai J11 2019 1.3 DIG-T.

I used this guide a few weeks ago to install a dashcam in my 2014 Acenta Premium. Used the screen wash fuse and it works great. However I noticed when stuck in bad traffic the other day that sometimes my dashcam powers off when the stop/start restarts the engine. I have a Dashcam Pro 200. It doesn't power off when the engine stops but does when it restarts, not everytime and when it does I can just remove the USB cable from the cam, re-insert and it will power up. So I'm assuming this is something to do with the cam picking up a change in power and thinking the engines been switched off.

Does the Cam have an internal rechargeable battery?

I did this a few months back, and the guide was spot on for a 2019 QQ, including the revision about ensuring the cable to the cam is placed behind the curtain air bag.
