    I picked up this dashcam package for my recently purchased 2019 Raptor...

    BlackVue DR900S-2CH with 16GB Micro SD Card | Power Magic Pro Hardwiring Kit Included | WiFi GPS 4K Recording CLOUD Connectivity

    I came from a tricked out 2009 Tacoma where I did all my own installs. So, I'm not scared of wiring.

    I'm not going to punch through the firewall for constant power, and I don't plan to start checking live wires under the dash to splice a "
    Power Magic Pro BlackVue Vehicle Battery Discharge Prevention for Parking Mode for BlackVue"

    I'm using a $25 wiring harness to power a $500 camera, in a really fucking expensive truck... there's gotta be a cleaner method... are there ECU plug and play harnesses available, or some secret power supply within the interior cabin somewhere?

    I'd appreciate any advice. Thanks guys.

    I believe there is a wire harness that plugs into the rear view mirror that can be tapped into?
