A little help needed Hardwiring Dashcam - Nextbase

Hello All,

New here and a newbie to Cars in general.

 

Just got myself a mk3 Ford Focus 2013 and also just picked up a Nextbase 522GW.

 

I'm planning on hardwiring this(first dash cam), but unsure which fuse to use under the passenger side.

Can anyone point me into the right direction or share any suggestions and advice on which to use and a guide in general to install the hardwire kit?

 

Pretty new to this, so any help is greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks!

Halford do a fitting service. I used and very reasonable. 

Thanks! I did think that originally, but they're charging £50 which is more than I am looking to pay, so was hoping to do it myself.

This might be of some help, you'll just need someone to post a suitable fuse that is ignition controlled...

Or a permanent live supply if you want the camera to continually record when the vehicle is not in use or to use "Parking Mode" 

Did you buy the official Nextbase Hardwire Kit?

I would so advise against using 'parking mode', it's a real PIA!
