Thanks. That sounds simple but I totally forgot about it lol.

Tap into the wiring for the torch charge on the left or 12v socket on the right. I believe both are switched.

Is there anything inside the litigate it self?
I was thinking of putting the camera om the bottom of the window, just high enough to clear the wiper. This way, won't have to wire much either. I haven't opened up the cover in litigate to investigate.

If you have a reversing camera it will have a 12v supply BUT it may be wired to only power on when in reverse. Need to check this.

Figured I would share this if people were interested in a Blackvue DR650GW-2CH for a good price.
Massdrop has it for $279.99 + $5 shipping. This is the best deal I've seen since I started stalking it. Bought a few things from Massdrop before, never had any issues. You must sign up to look at it, and only 5 days left.

This is "friends" link to Massdrop (aka if so many people sign up ill get credit or something)

or if you prefer not to use my link just go to www.massdrop.com and search for Blackvue.

You really don't need to go in engine bay for power.

It's VERY easy to tap the back of the cigarette lighter in the cubby. Next to USB.
This is 20 amps and switched. Takes all of two minutes to get a wire from the glove box down there. The side panel just pops off.

If you want it unswitched then tap cigarette lighter in the center console.

I've also tapped power from mirror. Little trickier.

Got any pics of how to tap from the glove-box?

I used to t-tap my old car before this one, but according to the dealership - any tapping of wires voids the warranty, so i'd like to avoid that
