Good evening -

In my Ascent I have 2 pairs of Thinkware f800 pro dash cams with backup batteries.

In my 2017 Forester XT I had the following:
2 pairs of Thinkware F770s with 64gb memory cards and rear IR cameras
2 Cellink NEO backup batteries (one for each camera pair)
2 Celot Nu-Black Light LED impact lights

I am trading in my 2017 Forester XT on Friday for a 2019 Forester and I assume I will install F800 pros in it to be consistent in what I own. I am looking to sell the above items from my Forester XT as seen in the photos. Here are a few links to help you see what it is I am selling if you are unsure:

Thinkware F770 camera (front camera only w/ 64gb card $279 each) : https://www.blackboxmycar.com/colle...hinkware-f770-dash-cam?variant=12529461854263
Thinkware F770 rear view IR camera ($99 each) : https://www.blackboxmycar.com/colle...ware-infrared-rear-camera?variant=35088874887
you can not buy the IR rear camera with the main camera as a bundle... only the non IR version
Cellink NEO Battery B 2nd gen (older version does not work with Celling app $199 each but sold out online) : https://www.blackboxmycar.com/colle...ducts/cellink-battery-b?variant=5108017889317
Celot LED lights (no longer available but were $99 each when purchased) : https://www.blackboxmycar.com/pages/celot-nu-black-light-first-impressions

The good news is all of this functions and functioned when I pulled it out of the car. It was all professionally installed and uninstalled.

If you were to buy it all now at the prices that it is currently on sale for, you'd pay $1351.

I'd like to get just $400 for it all and here is why

1. One of the cameras is missing the install manual so I don't want to separate the 2 cameras. The pair of cams will only come with 1 manual

2. Since I used all 4 cameras in one car, I opted for just a 2 foot cable for one set of cameras to connect the front to the rear. I mounted them next to one another with one facing in and one facing out, hence the IR cameras, so one camera I sell will need to be installed a similar way. The other camera has the 25 foot cable between the cameras.

3. Both my rear and front windows were tinted and the installer didn't feet comfortable peeling the camera mounts from the glass for fear it would pull off the tint. Whoever buys the cameras will need to buy the mounts for them which are $19 each and can be found here: https://www.blackboxmycar.com/colle...ucts/thinkware-f770-mount?variant=25553952775
the rear camera can use any adhesive tape.

4. The celots serve a nice purpose since they illuminate at night when the car is bumped to provide more light for the camera to catch additional details like license plates. Unfortunately, the way my installer installed them, he tapped them into the backup batteries too so they drained the batteries quicker when I left the car parked for more than a couple days. As a result, I unplugged them and didn't use them much. If you are like me and buy this package, you may not even use them... feel free to sell them though since they are really not available anywhere in the US.

5. If you prefer clean new wires, you can buy new harnesses and not spend much more. The harnesses that come with the cameras are in good shape. One is untapped and perfect. The other was tapped with the celot lights so you'd want to re-solder the wires, or just buy another one of these (OptionSpliced Cellink Output Cable with Hardwire Kit (Thinkware): https://www.blackboxmycar.com/colle...roducts/hardwire-splicing?variant=53349584199 which is $45.

6. You'll need to format the sd cards and setup the cameras again from scratch to access the videos because its set up to my wifi password. This can be done simply by pressing 'record' and 'format' together for 5-10 seconds. Pretty simple, but i forgot to do it while they were still installed.

So if you are ok with the above 6 things, then $400 is a steal for all of that equipment. Heck, if there are a couple people on here who want to split it up into 2 separate sales, feel free. You could easily remedy the 2 foot cable issue by ordering a new 25 foot cable for $25 : https://www.blackboxmycar.com/colle...r-camera-connecting-cable?variant=25554304647

Ill also include a couple add a fuses and install parts that were not used. There are Cig lighter adapters for straight from the camera to the lighter or straight from the Cellink Neo to the lighter. Those were never used. I opted for the hardwire but they will be included for a plug and play setup. If you have questions, just ask. I would really prefer not to separate them but anyone who buys the pair could easily sell one set for over $300.

Still available. I can split the camera pairs if that helps. If split it would be $200 per camera set.
