Hi, Just hardwired my Dashcam using a fuse piggy bank but am having an issue. I want to tap a fuse that is only on when ignition is on but am having issues finding one. For now I used the front seat heaters as they do not turn on when ignition is off, but for some reason my Dashcam stays on 24/7 and drains the battery. For those that have hardwired a dashcam or radar detector using fuse piggyback what fuse did you use?

My radar turns on and off with the motor while piggybacked to that fuse. I don't recall how I chose the fuse, but it works.

Mine is just a simple Yi dashcam, basically any will work for you.
