    I put it under the head liner. You can't tell it's there.When I mounted my camera I ran a 12 volt wire from the fuse panel( switched) the to the voltage reducer the to thamera.

    Check out this thread about power up by the mirror (not really power to the mirror, sorry)

    I’ll check and see how the headliner is attached in my Navi, I assume it’s the same or similar since I didn’t get the black label that has the suede headliner. Hiding it up there and tapping off power in the upper console behind the mirror would be the easiest way I think.

    behind mirror? are you talking about the black plastic cover on the glass or the actual overhead console ABOVE mirror, just clarifying.

    Fuses 6 and 7 are Micro3 type, I had Micro2 fuse tap, which came with my dash cam. Didn't want to bother buying another one :)

    Yes, that’s what I’m talking about. There is another poster who got power from that area.
