Need to find a 12V constant wire in my 2011 Tundra

    Im installing some phones in our work trucks that give gps directions and let our guys clock in using the phone. They are hard wired into the truck with a battery eliminator. This one is a 2011 Tundra TRD. It has two power outlets in the dash but both are ignition switched. I tried the cargo lamp light but when i tap into the constant it shorts it out and the cargo lamp stays on. Also this wire is like a 16 gauge maybe even 18 gauge wire and im not sure if it could even carry the 12v needed.

    Can anyone think of another wire i could try?
