    Just to add my experience.

    Exl 2018: Top green for 12v, second black for net.

    I used the Blendmount mirrortap middle size probe. The larger probe was too large. The middle probe one was a little loose in the 12v, so I used a cutoff piece of the black zip tie supplied to stuff in the 12v hole to help provide a good contact.

    Just wanted to say thanks for sharing this info. I ordered the exact same wires the first time. Your post helped me realize that. Cancelled my order and ordered the correct one.

    Really appreciate that.

    I have a 2015 Ody and have my V1 mounted on a BlendMount and hardwired to the fuse box on the driver side. I bought a kit off Amazon and tucked the wires in headliner and pillar. Also have my dashcam mounted this way as well.

    No need to splice or tape into any of the wires.

    Is there something like this for a DashCam (powered by regular cigarette lighter through USB wire)?

    Yep: https://www.odyclub.com/forums/81-20...-wire-how.html

    Though beware, depending on what dash cam you have, it may require the original cable/accessories be used. I have a garmin dash cam 55 and it refused to pull enough power through a standard micro-usb cable hooked up this way. I even tried a knock-off hardwire cable into the fusebox, didn't like that either. Eventually had to buy the official garmin hardwire cable and wire it into the fusebox. Now I just have a convenient unused usb plug hanging behind my mirror, fine by me :P

    I saw that thread. There, you either splice a cable (I don't really want to cut open anything), or run a wire to the fusebox by removing "A pilar" (again, I don't feel like ripping the car apart, and there aren't any photos on how they did the removing of A pilar).

    In this thread, you just had pins inserted into the back of the mirror contacts. Was really hoping for something that simple, but USB instead of RJ11

    Edit: was only able to find this video regarding A pillar removal:

    Is it same for 2018 models too?

    Any videos that show how to then reach the fusebox?

    Ah, this might do what you're looking for.

    Honestly, running a hardwire from the fusebox isn't hard, and the A Pillar comes off super easy. If the mirror power doesn't work, you should go that route. There's plenty of guides on this forum about it. Good luck.
