For installation in a Honda, see this tutorial video to find out correct placement and installation with a panda and giraffe.
For installation in a Toyota, see this instruction video.
- Select the correct angled mounting plate adapter.
- The EON comes with a 22 degree GoPro style mounting bracket installed (for sedans and coupes and other cars with a shallow angled windshield) and a 28 degree mount in the box (for cars with a steeper angle windshield like SUVs and vans). Use the included allen wrench to change mounting brackets.
- You can estimate by using the level functionality of your compass app on your phone with your car parked on a flat surface. It doesn't have to be exact but pick the one closer to your windshield angle.
- Mount the EON adapter.
- You want right side of the EON (from the driver's reference) to be directly underneath the stock LKAS camera. This ensure that the road facing camera has a good view of the road and that the driver facing camera has the driver's face in view (driver monitoring features are coming!).
- If you are installing with the Giraffe and Panda, install the Giraffe and Panda first and ensure that the USB can reach the Panda
- The previous preferred mount was to remove the mirror and mount the EON/NEO directly to the mirror mount. However, EONs now come with the sticky GoPro mount. The instructions below will give you a good chance of installing a windshield mount level and straight:
- Experiments have revealed that the most important mounting aspect is the rotation (or roll) of the windshield mount. This method has repeatedly worked well:
- Park between two street lines (for instance: inside the yellow turn lane on a low-traffic street) Then put the car in drive with the parking brake on, and foot on the break.
- Adjust the lanes until they look centered on the EON.
- Rotate the EON until the path line is perfectly vertical between the lines.
- If you prefer a Mirror Mount, here is a 3d printable STL file for a Honda Rearview Mirror Mount to GoPro adapter (may fit other cars too)
Consider following the Gridded UI wiki for precise EON placement.
