    Did the Z-EDGE S3 dash cam on the Advanced model. Ran the cable around the edge of the windshield. They provide a tool to push it in. Plugged in the front cig lighter.

    Connect to passenger side fuse box is better without long wiring, and have a plug into rear USB socket is not super neat.

    I installed a Viofo A119s dashcam behind the mirror onto the plastic covering for the built-in camera. I'm not sure how that will hold. I wanted to stick it onto the glass but I got the front of my windshield tinted. I routed the wire like others have done. I have 2 other Viofos for 2 to 3 years and they have held up well. I would recommend that brand for the best price/performance ratio.

    Here is a link to my setup for a street guardian and transcend rear camera setup. That thread also shows video quality and the aftermath of installing a dash camera. Long story short, I did not pay a dim to my insurance. But I lost about 9,000 dollars due to depreciation and a totaled 2016 prius.
