FYI...You do not have to turn the power off, as your car goes to sleep mode after 15min.

Nevermind. Figured out in the verts use the green wire with white stripe for switched power.

Your welcome. Its in the wire loom that goes to the mirror, and I placed a self tapping screw in the frame above the light housing off to the side. You can squeeze the hardwire box in an area towards the left front of the overhead light compartment.

I read somewhere about that green/white wire but I had no room to work up in there. I ended up tapping into the glove box light and running it (badly - need to fix this) up the A pillar on the passenger side.

I really want to do a stealth mirror and laser jammer and headrest mount it. I hate having it in the windshield, especially with the top down.

I'm installing the remote display in my ashtray and going with a laser jammer, laser interceptor to be exact, also I removed my front plate it makes it more difficult for LEOs to get a fix with the laser it usually take 2 or 3 times.

you can definitely tap it in, ( I don't remember what color wires). hardest part is stuffing all the wiring up there and putting back the map light.

To the guys that tapped into the green and white wire, what did you guys use to ground? I do not see a screw up there for 'verts. Thanks!
