Wow, this device worked great! For anyone who stumbles upon this thread this was a really easy and clean solution with no tools required. Here's how it came out:


Driver side

Passenger side

Outside view

View from driver seat

Love that solution! My mirror power already has a MobileEye wired into it. How would I go about splitting power to the 10pin mirror port? Newbie to electrical.

How is the MobileEye wired to it? If you can still remove the wire harness from the back of the mirror (with anything else wired in), then when you plug the harness back into this device it will retain it's power.

That looks great! I like that no modifications are required to the existing wiring harness for the mirror. Does the USB port provide switched/accessory power or is it constant? I'm thinking about buying one myself.

It turns on and off with the car. So no constant power. I prefer it that way so the cam doesn't run at night and drain my battery.

That's the answer I was hoping for, thanks for getting back to me! Just placed an order on Amazon.

I just got mine in the mail, its much much smaller than I expected and the electrical tape is applied very neatly too...IMO better than it looks in the pics...if it wasn't for the anticipated durability I'd just leave it, but it looks very simple to unwrap and replace with shrink wrap...I'm just glad its a solution that doesn't require cutting into other wires or running long runs across the car
