Has anyone had a built in radar and/or dash cam installed? What brand and model? Did you run into any issues with the car as a result? My local service manager Brian has asked me to hold off in case there are any unforeseen technical issues. Please share your experiences. Thank You

No Taycan experience, but on my wife's Honda Pilot I had a Thinkware F70 put in. Crazy easy and it's tiny so it tucks behind the rearview mirror and you never notice it.

It's a bit basic though, so you might want to go with something like the f800 pro.

Oh, and it's super basic. I get there's some concern because it's a very modern EV, but really, there shouldn't be any issues.

Thank you I’m aware of Thinkware I was more asking about the very sophisticated wiring in the Taycan and possible issues with the 12V system given there were issues with early production models.

yes, i installed it using mirrortap and wiring it into the rearview mirror for my escort radar detector.

i posted it on a different forum. i am not sure if linking to another forum here is bad. if so then i apologize and the admin can remove my response. (edit, i see the link is somehow blocked)

The response that you got from the Service Manager is what all dealer staff for any Auto Manufacturer would tell you, so if there was any damage to the car following your installation you could not blame the dealer. So don't worry about this comment. I'm assuming radar means radar detector. If so, both the camera and radar detector are passive electrical devices and don't emit any significant RF or any interference on the wiring. As part of the vehicle's Homologation, all vehicles have to pass strict EMC test requirements which are way beyond what those devices can emit. Having said that, it's sensible not to place your detector or camera within a few mm of an EMC sensitive equipment eg. antenna amps and infotainment head units.
Presumably the only electrical intergration that is needed is a 12V and gnd. If so and unless you have a Taycan circuit diagram and know what you are doing, only wire into the an auxillary power socket. If necessary, wire into the back of the socket and use a low amp fuse to protect the wiring for your devices.
