So I finally decided to purchase a dash camera with the crazy stories I have seen on here about hit'n runs, not at-fault accidents and rims getting stolen I thought it was time to install one. Just a quick background I purchased both the dash camera and the micro sd card from Amazon the links are below. I went with the Rexing because I hate the suction cup dash camera look so wanted something that would be almost hard to see.
Total came out to 111.62
Install Time: 30-45 minutes
I have removed my interior trim before when I wrapped my interior so that made things a little bit easier. It is very simple there are only 2 screws the rest are clips that just need to be popped out. If you need further help with removing the interior trim check this video out

Running the power cable through
Check this video out to access the cabin air filter compartment. Here is the
Now let me just show a quick layout of where I ran the cable through.
This was by far the hardest part to get the wire through I ended up using a coat hanger to snake it through it was a tight fit.
Sorry this is just a picture of the pillar but all I did at this part was tuck the wire in with a flat head screw driver.
Tucked wire into head liner, this part was very easy the headliner was not that difficult to pry to slip the wire.
Since I don't use the 12V power outlet in the arm rest console I unscrewed it and just zip tied it below.
Used some electric tape to secure the power connection so no chance of it loosening up.
Zip tied the extra power cable to some existing cables.
Camera mounted and powered
Below are some clips that I pulled, the quality of the video is more grainy then what it actually is since the camera records in 1080p. I think upload caused it to appear the way it does and I also had to remove the audio because I had music playing YouTube kept giving copyright notices.
