    My Dongar is in the mail ... USPS site has not changed the status since yesterday. I guess I will ... sigh ... become ambitious enough to plug it into the mirror and my GW522 ...

    Just my 2 CENTS:
    Have you ever try to charge the battery with normal, 110v. charger, let's say every 3-4 months?
    You can be surprised, how many years it will serve, if you do so. Mine personal record - 8 years daily driving, Calgary climate,:burnrubber: original KIA battery (whoever makes them).
    Try it! :thumbsup::canada:

    I apologize for my complete stupidity here (and i will google it after I post this) but is this like an adapter to plug the dash cam into the rearview mirror? I've wanted a dash cam but havent committed because i know trying to get it to power will be a pain in the ass... maybe not??

    Thanks!!

    The Garmin Mini Cam + the Adapter will be all you need. As long as you have power to your rearview mirror, the adapter will provide what you need.

    It is just that. Otherwise you run a long cable around the window and along the dash. Though some report that the dashcam can draw enough power from the mirror to impair its operation and go back to a normal power run. For me it is worth the #30 risk.

    Brilliant! My 2018 was totaled by a jackass driver, been wanting a dashcam for the new truck.

    The harness I bought didn’t have that resistor? attached to it. I can’t find it on Amazon anymore either.

    That’s just the max it can read. The blue line indicates I was only averaging 15mpg at the time
