Permanent live fuse

Post by dakeb » Thu May 21, 2020 1:48 pm

I just fitted a Nextbase 522GW series 2 dashcam and took the feed of fuse 31 (rear wiper) as that's what others have done. All working fine, but I want it to have a permanent live feed for parking mode, as the inbuilt battery on the dash cam doesn't last long enough. It has a battery voltage regulator in the hardwire kit so will shut the dash cam down if the car battery gets too low.

So, which fuse in the centre console is permanent live? Anyone know?

Also, if I want to show the dashcam on the car screen via Android Auto, is there any way to do that? It doesn't show the Nextbase app in the list of apps available.
