I know this isn't particularly specific to the Insight itself.... But, anyone got a dash cam installed? I had one in my Hyundai Elantra that has since migrated over to my new Insight. It's not a terribly expensive unit but does offer some good features and really clear video that's easy to download to a computer. I know in the past I've gotten some good footage of people doing dumb things while out not he road but nothing more than that. It is nice knowing that should I ever be in a legal situation where I would need to defend myself that I would have a digital footprint of where I was and when and what happened both with audio and video. You just never know in this day and age.
To install my dash cam, used a fuse tap in the interior fuse box in the driver footwell area to tap into fuse number one which is the accessory fuse. Allows the dash cam to run run while the vehicle is in accessory or in the on position. It's definitely worth it to do this type of install so that you don't have any cords hanging down and you're not blocking a usb port/12 volt outlet. Simply tucked the lead into the weatherstripping of the driver door and then up into the headliner. Hides the cords and makes the install look really nice.... like a professional installed it. Took about 15-20 minutes to get it finished up.
