Wiring Diagram for Rear View Mirror?

Hi all,

I recently obtained a Blend Mount to hang my radar detector underneath my rear view mirror. Installing the mount was simple; however, I am having quite a bit of difficulty tapping into the power from the rear view mirror.

I have an '11 Tacoma Prerunner with a back up camera in the mirror.

According to the Blend Mount instructions, I need to plug the black MTPC clip into the ground wire and the red MTPC clip into the 12 volt wire. The instructions are generic and do not specify which color to use.

I have tried searching and have been unable to find the diagram, anyone know which is which?

I unplugged it and put wire in the holes and used a volt meter to determine the +12v. I listed it in the Valentine One thread. Couldn't remember what wires now. Also on my iPhone. Search and you'll see.

Follow up.

Here are pictures (after some trial and error) of the wires I plugged into.

Radar detector comes on/off with key turn of the ignition.

To be honest, rather unscientifically.

Trail and error.
