Firstly, apologies if this has been discussed in depth before and please redirect me if it has.

Here's my idea:

I have a 2021 Ascent Touring with the smart rear view mirror w/ camera (for ref:
) and was hoping to install a dashcam.

The dashcam I purchased is a garmin mini (Garmin Dash Cam™ Mini | Dash Camera). The reason I purchased this particular one is because I can mount this on the back of the rear view mirror and avoid any EyeSight issue. I have run this with cable and have no issues thus far.

I'd like to keep the install clean and am considering tapping into the rear view camera's power to power the dashcam. I've installed mirror tap in previous vehicles with no issues at all. So I am considering using this https://www.amazon.com/Two-prong-Universal-Dashcam-Adapter-MicroUSB/dp/B07BFRWC3X

Any thoughts/experiences/warnings would be appreciated!
