"What is a ferrite core?"
A ferrite core is a magnet that is specifically designed to help reduce electromagnetic interference. This means that ferrite cores are fantastic for reducing radio interference caused by electrical noise.
"How do I install it on my power cable?"
To work correctly, a ferrite core must be installed with a loop in the cable, the cable must pass through the magnetic, loop around and come back through. Please take a look at the example shown below. We recommend installing the core approximately 6 inches (15.2cm) from the Dash Cam itself.
"I've installed a ferrite core, but am still experiencing interference with my radio?"
- Try re-routing your Dash Cam cable(s) away from it's current position, as it may be routed near the aerial cable.
- Move the camera to different positions on the window. In some vehicles, certain areas of the window may be more susceptible to interference than other areas.
"I've tried the steps listed above and I'm still having issues with my radio?"
All of our devices are well below Elecro-Magnetic Compatibility (EMC) standards worldwide, although unfortunately some car radio systems are extremely sensitive and are far more susceptible to interference than others. If you have tried the steps listed above please contact your vehicle manufacturer for some advice.
"My vehicle manufacturer was unable to offer a suitable solution for the problems with interference"
If your vehicle manufacture not able to fix the issue then we recommend using a mobile radio app instead of the built in DAB or FM radio.
