EyeSight is a driver assist tool that has 2 cameras mounted on both sides of the rear view mirror. Because of the location of these cameras, people often wonder where they can install an aftermarket dash cam in their Subaru.
The best place to mount a dash cam in a Subaru with EyeSight is sticking the dash cam mount right next to the mount for the rear view mirror. Just make sure the dash camera lens is not pointing through the dotted window tint at the top of the windshield.
Examples of Subaru cars that have EyeSight and dash cams installed, photos below.

The field of view of the EyeSight camera sensors
We recommend getting a small wedge shaped or tube shaped dash cam that uses a sticky adhesive mount to attach to your windshield. You should consider avoiding dash cams that use a hanging style mount, as they will take up more space and potentially get in the way of the EyeSight camera sensors.
