    Would depend highly on the camera you have to be able to determine what its operating parameters are.

    My Thinkware F770 2CH uses a switched and perm live, one for continues driving which turns on when the switched fuse becomes live, the other is power during parking mode. The camera has a iPhone app that allows me to change the settings of the battery drop level, so when the camera detects the cars battery is below 11volts say, it shuts down.

    I haven't tested the longevity of parking mode, i have my camera set to shut off after 24 hours as i don't foresee myself not driving it for longer than that, parked in a place where I'm concerned. When the car is in a compound for 2 weeks over a holiday break, i don't know if any camera will support that length of time!

    Thanks for the guide !
    I bought this kit :

    To go with this one :
    https://www.amazon.fr/gp/product/B0711K92J1/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
    Hopefully your browser will auto translate, if it doesn't : "AUKEY Dashcam Full HD 1080P" and "Dash Cam Hardwire Kit Mini USB wire 12V -24V à 5V"
    Any tips for my MK3, about the fuses or anything else ? (never tried to do anything like that)
    ofc feel free to link me a post if someone already asked and I missed it,
    Thanks,
    Cheers

    thanks I'll get a good look at this guide.
    Well I guess better go for the permanent mode, if the cam software is good enough it shouldn't drain my car's battery. So then Permanent live would be my choice
    Unless I am missing something ?

    I figured it out like a big boy !
    I had to replace the fuse with the black connector I bought, but put it 1 position above to make it permanent.
    Cheers
