    Hi Guys,

    I am planning on adding a android mirroring box behind the navigation unit so I can mirror my phone. But the mirroring box has a positive and negative lead that needs to connected to a power source. Where is everyone getting this source or using to tap in?

    Thank you in advance.

    In that situation, I would run a piggy back double fuse from the fusebox with power cable going behind to navigation unit so the device is fused and fused is assess-able.

    +1 on tapping a circuit in the fuse panel under the driver's side dashboard.

    Hi im pretty new here and was only able to write at all by responding to this post. My main question is can a low 12 volt battery trigger the replace hybrid battery code? My 2014 prius threw the code a few weeks ago so I used my obd 2 reader to shut the code off everything is now working normally although the obd 2 reader says the battery code is permanent.
