Can I undo my mirror and splice into anything for a fixed dashcam?

I installed a dashcam. Its easiest to go under the windshield to the main fuse controller on passenger side under the hood using an add-a-fuse.

Did you make adjustments to the AUX switch settings in the menu?
I hav 3 wires with my dashcam kit. Battery, ACC and ground. Is this doable with AUX?

Thx in advance.
I didn't make any changes to the aux switches, i just keep the aux 4 switch on. I do have a dedicated battery so it can run parking mode. That battery would charge while the engine is running.

I also think there might be a market for a replacement thing we can pop up there to add a USB port.

With factory installed Aux, in the front passenger foot well, you will find the Aux bundle. This bundle has a Direct to battery wire, an ignition switched wire and also Aux 1, 2, 3, 4 wire.

No settings need to be done in UConnect for direct to battery and ignition switched wires.

There is also an easy to access, ground point in the front passenger foot well.

By the way, you will find an Aux bundle in the engine compartment, right by the Main battery. That bundle only has Aux 1, 2, 3, 4 and no direct to battery or ignition switched wire.

Here is a pic that shows wire colors and Amp..

Just came here to say that with the aux bundle right there and this post i successfully installed my wife's new garmin dashcam today. Thank you and the other 10 posts I read to make it happen flawlessly.

Thanks to this thread, I was able to install my dash cam (Blackvue DR900X-2CH) with minimal fuss. This thread was was great for figuring out where I wanted to tap into the wiring and where/how to route the wires. So thanks!

I want to share what I used as my ground point for my hardwired install. I used the bolt that's part of this carpet "button" on the passenger side transmission hump as it was really close to the aux switch internal wiring harness and didn't require removing the ride-side kick panel.
