Dash Cam Power from Overhead Console

Recommended Posts

I'm wanting to power my dash cam from the overhead console.  I'm looking for suggestions.  I have the same console as the one in the picture (this one is NOT mine, but one like mine).

So I ended up buying the Garmin hardwire kit so if they bumper my truck or something I’ll hopefully catch the person. Didn’t mess with the cam to much but over all does what I need and connects via a app so I can save/delete/update it. 

 

like that it still works without being plugged in

Did the person in the silver SUV (bottom photo) blast through the red light in front of you? Your traffic lights appear to be green.

Yea, he ran it, look at the other car still just sitting in the turn lane coming towards you.

 

Time to go home and hide your truck from the public.
