    Unnecessary. See my post on how to hardwire it into the overhead console. https://www.odyclub.com/forums/81-201...-wire-how.html

    How did you guys route the wire all the way to the back? I figured out how I'd run it up to the 3rd row but after that I'm not sure.

    I just installed SpyTec A119 with GPS logger, and a fuse tap. My challenge was to locate an empty fuse slot that only provides power when engine is started. I was able to hide most of the wire inside the sealing strip and window edge. No big difference from what I did to my old 2007 Odyssey.

    Can someone who has done a rear dashcam installation share more insights? I am also puzzled as to route the wire from the rear of the cabin to the tailgate (I want to install the camera right against the rear glass and don't want to leave a dangling wire). I previously installed cameras in my other vehicles with a tailgate and there were rubber channels to route wires. On our new Odysseys, it looks like all the wire are embedded with the hinge.

    Thanks in advance.

    How did you make out with this? I have a Garmin 55 Dash Cam which I followed the guide on this thread to hardwiring behind the overhead console. However, once I plugged my camera into the new USB port, it cannot draw enough power to hold a charge, and is routinely running out of battery and shutting off. It also complains about me not using the factory cable. I don't know if this is something in their firmware to recognize you're not using the Garmin cable, and nag you into doing so, but it should work fine the way I have it.

    Then I bought this kit off Amazon and have tapped into fuse 33 which is empty and I read on here it turns on with ignition, which is what I want. I am using a 5amp fuse which is what the kit came with, and have secured the ground wire behind a screw above the brake, but it will not power my dash cam at all when I tried. Luckily I tested it before I took off the A Pillar to run the cable behind it.

    I guess I need to get a multimeter to test with next.

    Do you have any tips on how you got your dash cam going?

    If anyone finds this thread by searching, I got it working. The Garmins' apparently require the official Garmin cable. As soon as I installed it it immediately began charging and quit complaining about the aftermarket cable. Seems awfully shifty to me, but it is the solution. Just know it going into it.

    And FYI if you don't care about parking mode, you need to twist the ACC & BAT cables together and put them into the same the add-a-fuse together, and then remember to disable parking mode on the dash cam itself.
