After much deliberation selected a 2 channel A139 to replace my aging and I increasingly unreliable dash cam setup.

Will be hard wiring and want to use parking guard this time, so if anyone can recommend which fuse to tap into on a 2012 Mondeo that would be helpful.

You'll need the HK3-C hardwire kit, and 2 circuits to tap into- one is always on12V and the other is IGN switched. Can't tell you which ones to tap into.

i got a dirt cheap LED probe tester for when i installed my first hard wire kit, and then went by the car manual trying none essential fuses to see what was ACC and which was live all the time. ( in a 2012 Suzuki car )

Hope your fuse box are better located than mine, which for a guy in my age and physical condition are just about as bad as it can get.

Yep, just in the glove box. So should be relatively easy.
