Hi

You need:
12v to 5v converter micro USB
12v switch


12v I took of the automatically dimming interior mirror.
Converter I moved into the socket from the rear-view mirror.
I wanted a switch, no ON and OFF by the ignition.

look, thats fine for me.





















Regards, Renè

Nice project !
RVmirror attachment housing or rain sensor housing give more options for DIY projects. I wish my car had one.

Hi,

Yes, a lot of space.
My Alfa has no rain sensor and no automatic interior mirror. But the electrical system is factory-prepared (board voltage).

Great idea! How did you remove the mirror attachment housing though? My Mito looks exactly the same from the inside but I can’t find any screws that hold it in place?

Not me ! i have so much room in front of my mirror i could build the Lego police station there, a sensor housing would severely make a dent in my ability to test a lot of cameras at once without going off the dotted area directly in front of the mirror.
