Hi, thanks for the great post, my nextbase has the parking mode which records if the car feels vibration, im unsure if it would have enough charge everynight just to work off its own battery, id a skoda octavia before where the cig lighter was active even when the ignition is not on, is there anyway to do this in the passat ? Its a 2018 estate

TIA

Hi all, new member here, I bought a 2015 GT 190 TDI manual B8 estate last week and found this topic when looking up how to hard wire my Nextbase 312 dash cam, thanks for the tips in this thread it was a pretty simple 15 minute job, one thing I would add though, the glove box strap doesn't just prise away, if you pull the fastener knurled knob towards you, there is a hole in the glove box lid to allow the fastener to come out, to refit, you push the fastener into the hole then push away to let it slip ito a slot. :-bd.
Im loving the car, I had a 2012 CC before which has 192k on the clock and never ever had any issues at all, Im hoping this will be as good.
