Did that end up being the proper fuse tap size? Size of fuse tap, not amps.
Apologies for the late reply. Yes, the fuse tap seems to be working fine in the car. I haven't installed or hardwired the dashcams yet but I may get to it at some point.Did that end up being the proper fuse tap size? Size of fuse tap, not amps.
Thank, ,will give it a go this weekend.They just pull apart sideways. Get a pair of rubber gloves (for the friction) put both hand's fingertips on one side, press against it and jerk it away from the other side.

I plan to use the dongar 12v to 5v usb converter made for my frameless mirror.Hi all, I don't have a CX-50 yet but do have some experience with hardwiring various dash cams on other vehicles. Just wanted to point out that regardless of where you are tapping in, it's probably a good idea to make sure your setup will provide sufficient current for your camera setup. I've seen some multi-camera systems with screens, gps modules, etc. that require 3.0A, and many hardwire kits that are rated for less than that (~2.3A). I've run into an intermittent power problem that I was able to resolve by choosing a hardwire kit (12V to 5V step down) with a higher current rating.
And of course, the dash cam is the last thing you want with a flaky power connection. Just throwing that out there. HTH
