    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.

    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.
