Adding a USB connection to the overhead module

Hi all - has anybody done a mod where they added a USB connection to their overhead unit?

I have a dash cam mounted just under the rear view mirror, where I would like to draw power from the overhead unit via USB, instead of a wire running down to the standard USB console connection.

Cheers

I didn't add a USB but ordered a hardwire for my camera and tapped into the dome lights. A lot cleaner than having a USB cable sticking out.

What is this hardwire you ordered, could you post a link or further information?

Re: Adding a USB connection to the overhead module

It depends on what dashcam you have. For example:
