Does anyone know which fuses in the cabin would be best to tap into for a dash cam? It requires one with constant power (so it can record if the vehicle is parked) as well as one that turns on and off with the vehicle. There are a number of choices that turn on and off. But, I'm having a hard time finding one with constant power (that isn't a fuse that's too large like the power seats fuses).

If I remember it correctly (I can't check it at the moment), fuse F20 (Rear seat entertainment) on the instrument panel fuse block is a constant one (12.2V). Check it out. If it doesn't work, let me know, and I'll take a look.

I can't help you with which fuse because I had the dealer install mine. But I wanted to suggest that if you are installing a rear one as well, to mount it in the middle of the rear windshield where the wiper can clear the window. I live on a dirt road where the window is dirty most of the time and they installed the rear camera to the top side where the window doesn't get washed.

Where did you mount your dash cam on the front windshield?
I don't want to block any of the sensors. I see one is on passenger side of rear view mirror (auto-dimming?) and one on top center of rear view mirror mount (for adaptive cruise control?), but I'm not sure if there might be others.

I placed it below the rear view mirror mount (see the picture). It doesn't seem to be blocking anything.

I mounted the front cam to the right of the rear view mirror as high as I could get it.

Yeah,I mounted it top center for that exact reason.

I'm sorry I never saw any of the replies to this until now. I'm not sure what I ended up using, I'd have to look.

I'm not sure what I ended up using, but it's working. Sorry I never saw any of the replies to my post until today. Thanks for the info though.

I have no idea why it double posted. My first response didn't seem to work so I did a second one. And it posted both. Weird.

I mounted my dash cam just to the drivers side of the rear view mirror, so far, so good.
The sensor on the passenger side of rear view mirror (auto-dimming?) and one on top center of rear view mirror mount (for adaptive cruise control?) are the only ones I can detect.
I tucked the wire just under the headliner, then down/inside the weatherstrip, then under the (driver's side) back seat floor mat, and plugged into the USB port at the rear of the console.
It comes on when car is started, and off when engine is stopped. I don't need it on when car is parked (it is in garage every night).

Are there any updates? I'm having a lot of trouble finding the correct fuse to use. I think my multimeter is off so that's no help

As I mentioned above, fuse F20 (Rear seat entertainment) on the instrument panel fuse block should be a constant one (12.2V) - if I remember it correctly. Unfortunately, I won't be able to check that for a couple of weeks. I suggest you try it and see if it works.
