It easy to use the piggyback and use the rearwiper fuse which turns dashcam on with ignition and turns off when turn engine off I've had that done to mine since my last Astra I owned and never failed me

Originally hoped to find a fuse near the battery in the boot to use to make for easier installation

I'd use nextbase hardwire kit that will allow parking mode to be use depending on the dashcam if that has it in settings which is useful and to find a fuse you'll need find a fuse that only works with ignition on ie rearwiper

Yeah going to use the rear wiper for the ingnition feed,park mode being another reason for hard wiring always handy to know which scumbag hits your car in car parks and drives off as many do,iav even had a guy try to do one having pulled into the space behind me hit me square in the rear bumper while I was sat in the car .lucky for me I had a tow bar fitted at the time so he did more damage to his van than he did my car

Just to update went ahead brought a permanent live from the battery and used wiper for ignition feed all of which was a pointless exercise as the mio smartbox turns out not to be smart at all,it’s merely a permanent power supply that sets a timer for 36 hours.so any members that use the mio cams don’t bother with the smartbox.
Anyone know of a reasonable hard wire kit for dash cams
