I used this and piggybacked a fuse in the BSI. The ground wire fastens to a nearby earthing point. Not the cheapest you can find but from a respected manufacturer.

I bought a female 12v socket and wired that to a piggy back fuse.
Then just plugged my dash cam in to that.
Think it cost me about 3 total. Worked fine for the last 3/4 years.

when I did mine in the 207, I piggy backed onto the 12v socket accessory fuse in the glovebox, and simple earth behind an accessible bolt.

very easy to do.

Using the piggyback to a fuse in the BSI inthe glovebox means you can keep virtually all the wiring hidden. Using the 12v accessory socket means you can't plug anything else in or you have to buy a multiple accesssory socket and then things start to get untidy with the risk of the plug coming loose and the camera going off or the cables being snagged pulling the plug out.

storeman,did you have to fit the ferrite core? if so how did you fit it? as hole looks massive to thickness of wiring? thanks

Not essential to use the ferrite core but helps massively with EMI. I doubled up the wire until the ferrite core would tighten. Then wrap with 'leccy tape, so it wouldn't rattle. Depending on your install, I shoved all the excess wire incl. ferrite core into the dash support pipe accessible from the side panel.

sorry for being a pain,i used the hard wire kit as suggested by storeman,however a few of the fuses i tried in the glove box seemed to be constant live? i ended up,using the ignition diagnostics fuse,however after going back out to the car an hour later,the dashcam was still on? i checked the settings on the dashcam,and its supposed to power off after 10 secs,so does this mean,the fuse i have selected is constantly live? or have i done something wrong? thanks
