Dashcam Install

I finally received the new windshield mount for my Garmin Dash Cam 35 (the adhesive is permanent, so I had to order a new mount for the new truck) and probed out various power sources to find the best place to install.

The 12v lead to the mirror is tied to the ACC/ON ignition positions, making it ideal for this application. I spliced a tee into it, along with a 5A inline fuse, and a 12V to 5V USB converter from Amazon that is tucked into the mirror housing. This allowed for a tidy, almost factory look.
