Hi guys, just done an installation hard wired all perfectly functions if anyone interested I can share some pics and explain where to hard wire, you would require to use power magic pro - but don't leave it on when car is switched off it will cutoff when battery below 12v but this directly impacts on ECO Start/Stop function.
 
I would be interested in some more details and pics. Am considering a camera and the black use is top of shortlist but concerned about the unit size.
 
Ok cool guys, tomorrow car will go in to service under warranty to update firmware and latest map and also do check up start/stop function as I need to wait quite long time until it gets green light, which isn't right. This saturday will have some time so will record a video and post it here to view the installation.

Hi mate, I have the same camera as you and so far I am quite pleased with it.
Does yours have the cloud service already enabled? Mine is pre-April 2015, which means that if I want it to be "cloud-ready" I need to send it back to South Korea and get the Wi-Fi module upgraded :-(

On a more positive note, I do not have any issues with the start & stop, but maybe that is because my W205 is a 2015 model with a more recent firmware.
Please let us know how your FW upgrade goes.

Hi, I can confirm that was not related to BlackVue installation and directly Firmware issue which been resolved at dealer center, so now everything works like a charm. The only small issiue BlackVue shuts down when I press stop brake using Eco Start and if its set there for a while engine is off, blackvue shuts down off, I assume the issue might be in the powermagic pro, as I've connected it via Radio/Sat Nav fuse and Cigar Fuse and grounded in the trunk bolt.

As for Cloud service you'll have to write email to pitasoft with your serial number and MAC address of the camera and they will respond to you, whether your cam supports it or not and will send you a code. I've tried that firmware version, but for some reason dashcam been restarting all the time and could function properly, so I've downgraded back to 1.009 .
 
I have a 650 single front cam and hard wired it with a swith so i can swith it from on all the time-off-on with ignition. If i leave it on over night then the battery does not go flat over night.

I move the camera between my MB and my Mustang
