I know - ANOTHER dash cam thread...
I intend to install a radar detector as well as a 2 or 3 channel dash cam with super capacitor (heat resistance) and battery back up for extended park times.
I believe I'll use that plug hiding under the front overhead console box (where the OEM dash cam plugs in) to power the radar detector since 12V switched is all that is required.
I get the vibe that the front under dash fusebox is a little tight to tap into with the wiring kits (using for low voltage cutoff function). Since I'll be working interior panels to snake the rear cam line through anyway, I have a notion to make the power source for the cameras (as well as the battery back up pack) live back there near the rear fuse panel (it seems to have a bit more room that the front interior fuse box). Tapping an always hot, switched, and ground.
Although the vehicle is garaged most of the time, it does spend some significant time (days) parked unattended and I would like monitoring capability as much as possible in Park mode.
I don't know if this is a factor, but it's a wheelchair conversion. I've been considering an UBER style side-hustle to help pay for this (outrageously expensive but oh-so-worth-it) magic carpet, hence the 3 channel consideration. VIOFO is likely brand BTW.
Thanks for any insight/experience!
