What size SD cards do you guys run? And how long can they record for? Are they set to overwrite? Or do you have to pull the card and delete it?

I gave a 64 gig, which gives me about 5 days with both front and rear cameras at 1080 resolution. It overwrites

I think the card that’s in there right now is 64 gigs. It over writes but not over “events”. I format the card every couple weeks by pushing a button on the side of the front camera. That deletes marked events. Since I don’t have cloud available, I have to put the micro SD card in a computer to download any updates or if I want to save videos. I can download videos to my phone or tablet, but it’s much faster to copy them over on a computer.
Blackvue SD750 dual channel.

The wire for the camera is small, so I used a 5A (not the 15 that came with the tap).

Probably depends on the camera. My DR750 calls for 20 amp fuse.
I plugged it in to a 20 amp circuit and used a 20 amp micro fuse.

I connected to the fused PTO wire. Cameras draw less than half an amp running

I have the DR900 2-channel system. The most it draws is just over one amp. There is no way I'd want a wire that thin under my A-pillar trim and under my headliner with a 20 amp fuse. I don't know the gauge, but it definitely isn't rated for a 20 amp draw. I doubt you'd ever have an issue, but I like to fuse circuits for the weakest link - and that thin wire is it.

My camera isn’t plugged into the fuse block. It’s plugged in to the Cell Link Neo battery. The battery is connected to the fuse block and installation instructions called for a 20 amp fuse.
So I wasn’t exactly correct in my earlier post.
