Hi all.
I am going to fit a dash cam into my B-max sometime soon but i want to hard wire it so the parking mode feature will be enabled. The feature is ONLY enabled if the cam is hard wired.
My question is - I intend to use fuse taps for the connections needed but i cannot find out which type of fuses are fitted to the B-max, i.e mini blade,maxi blade, standard blade etc etc.
Anyone know which type is fitted ?
Thanks for your time and effort.

I've fitted a Kenwood dashcam to my wife's car using the Kenwood hardwire kit which comes with various piggyback type connectors. Also Next base do a fitting kit with a range of piggyback fuse connectors too . I'll be fitting a Kenwood to the Bmax when I've got some time to play with .

The hardwire kit also comes with the cam i am getting, a 70Mai A800, but it does not have fuses or the taps hence my query on fuse sizes.

open the fusebox and have a look! certainly uses standard and mini, but you would be better to connect via the obd port (which is permanent live and fused) or 12v accessory socket. (live after unlocking car 'till about 10 mis after leaving it)

The parking mode feature requires a connection to a permanent live feed and the cam itself has to have a connection to a switched supply so the acessory socket would not work.
As for the OBD port, i'm not sure there is a connector that exists for the cam i am getting as the cam is new out this year.
