    Anyone install/hardwire a 2-channel dashcam?

    I am planning on getting one in the next few when I get my car back and I have been wondering if I could (should) use the rear view mirror and wire taps for that.

    I think that a camera, especially a 2-channel one would have a big power draw.

    Not at all.. I've wired several into power available in your typical overhead "console"..

    Yep, took about 2 hours, all cables totally hidden, fuse taps in drivers footwell fusebox. Have the power magic pro for parking mode - ran for 2 days in parking mode before I drove the car again. Its currently parked for 10 days at the airport so hopefully I won't have a flat battery....

    So you know I am going to ask you the "pictures" question.

    If you wouldn't mind posting some of the tap when you get back, that would be great.

    Uh-huh, after I installed it all I realised I shouldve taken pics. Do you mean you want to see the type of fuse taps?

    Yeah, just the fiuse taps.

    I figure the other pictures are a lost opportunity and I can figure out how to run the cables.

    Make sure you get Micro2, NOT mini ones.
