    Considering a dash cam

    I'm thinking of fitting a dash cam, at the moment a Vantrue F1 is looking favourite, anyone have experience of these?
    However, importantly I don't want to compromise the underseat storage area that I regularly use for chain and lock, so looking for space to mount the dvr and loose excess wiring/connectors, somewhere just rear of the horn on the LHS is looking possible (gen2), although removing the fairing to install will be a pain.

    Slight distraction while nosing around for a suitable space....

    Does anybody know what this module is?
    (I have the BMW workshop manual, this just shows a connector with nothing connected)

    Possibly the alarm? I don’t have one on mine and that mounting cradle is empty - a convenient place to stow most of the wiring for my Innovv K3.

    If it is then it's in two parts. Away from home at the moment so can't post a better picture, but the lower right of that photo is the edge of the main more obvious (if you could see it all) alarm module. And also what I'm guessing is the tracker (not very well hidden).
    I'll have to take that panel off and look for part numbers/clues.  :002:

    I have a tracker but it isn’t in there - there’s just an unused connector.

    Yes, I have a Stealth S5 which I think is fitted under the (silver) metal crossbar. So still puzzled...
    Must be something BMW because connector and mounting is all there waiting.
    Haven't got TPMS so not that, pro lighting or pro suspension perhaps?
    That panel will have to come off for a proper look when I  get back home in a few days time. :002:
    My workshop manual is 2022 but the bike is 2020 so perhaps they've relocated something soon after my early gen2.

    That bracket is for the optional E-call module. I have the oil tank of my chain oiler there. The loose connector I've pulled back to the left side.

    Where did you get the workshop manual?
