So what's the difference between this and the 'old' PMP?

No use to me, my bi-modal exhaust is run from the OBD port.

Unless they include a pass thru gadget for the OBD port it will not be of much use to a lot of folk.

It simply plugs directly into your vehicles OBD (on board diagnostic plug) that all vehicles have, saving the cost of some 'installer' charging you a few hundred bucks to hard wire the camera.

You can find ODBII Y-splitters on Amazon. While they won't work in all scenarios, since this is just tapping power, it may work.

Wish my car still had the OBDII port. This is a pretty cool solution for sure.

Yes.
Except that the cam will get its supply from your car battery instead of the B112's battery, thus tend to run it down a bit. It does however have a low voltage detection protection that will switch off the camera if the car battery drops below 12V, thus preventing deep discharge of the car battery.

What is the problem that you have with the B112 anyway?

Is it restarting whilst driving or when parked?
If the restart happens when driving, just plug the cam into the ciggy socket and see if it still restarts.

When you got the replacement, did you use the new or old power cable?

It happens while driving and it’s plugled into ciggy socket at all times and yes the dash cam and wires are new that’s why I think it’s the wires connecting battery box to cam

I meant plug the cam direct into the ciggy socket on the car, thus bypassing the B112 and see if it still does it. If it doesn't that indicates that there is something wrong with the B112

Does anyone already have experience with the Power magic EZ? With my Porsche Macan from 2018 the Parking Mode doesn't work. Everything works in normal operation. Who has already installed and tested the Power magic EZ?

Power magic EZ has its own parking mode (green flashing light). In this mode he goes from switched to continuous power. Exactly this does not work for Porsche vehicles.
