Anyone have any tips for installing a rear dash cam? Where did you mount it, and where did you get power - the hatch, the rear cigarette lighter? I've got Garmin dashcam mini 2.

I have a vanture n2 pro and just use the the duo camera purpose. Yes it doesn't show a great picture of what is behind me, however it is good enough if I get rear ended. It also shows I am not texting, distracted, and attempted to avoid the accident.

I would power it with the rear power source and find a way to either 3m double sided tape or pop a panel piece off and have the mount hang from there. If you ever need to remove it to sell it would most likely be overlooked.

I have the Thinkware Q100 Elite 2 channel. The shop offered a OBDII adapter as an option so they don't have to hardwire it to the fuse box where it normally gets installed. It was $40.

I also got it so VW can't say anything.

I'll take a picture when I get home.
