Hi. I have just bought an in car camera that slots over rear view mirror. Quite impressed but a tad bigger than the original one. It comes with a car. Harder for power which I want to change to maybe hard wire in somewhere. Mainly because I have the two 12v sockets which have power Constantly to them and I want it to be easier to just start recording when I turn the car on.

So has anyone got any ideas maybe some easily accessed wires that are in front of car somewhere I can splice to or how to convert the power sockets maybe

Any help appreciated

What i did was used a twin fuse holder and found an ignition live in the fuse box , i then wired in a 12v aux socket and used a USB adaper , which i placed in the glove box , so when i turn ignition on the camera gets power.

Thanks. Any Idea where might be best to get a twin fuse. Tried halfrauds for a piggy back fuse but 'surprisingly' didn't know what I was on about. Have got day off today so might try a few car part shops and hope they have one. Which fuse did you to piggy back to?

I've just been to bullseye at firth park. And they suggested going to source sounds at chappletown to get a fuse splitter. Which would do what we want.

I'm gonna wire my dash cam into a switch which I'm going to place next to the front and rear windscreen heater controls. As my dash cam has a parking mode which won't work if the power from the ignition is turned off and power to the cam is lost.
