For those looking for an easy plug & play adapter for a front dashcam setup.
Thanks for sharing, cool idea and affordable option. It's plug and and play for Touring models that come standard with auto-dimming mirror, but would require mirror/power upgrade for LX and EX trims.

This video shares installation of a dash cam, attached to the rearview mirror/front camera mounting position and powered by/through a 2021 Touring overhead console. The 'hidden' mounting position is interesting to consider, and the dash cam used is the ThinkWare F70 1080p.

What I also liked about this is the detail/description on wiring connections, which I haven't found elsewhere. Whether using this overhead console to power a dash cam or to power a garage opener, summarizing the wiring info here for future reference:
6027

GREEN = full time power source (regardless of power on/off)
GRAY = headlight connection
BLUE = positive (when powered on)
BLACK = negative (when powered on)

Final dash cam system connections were powered by the 'blue' and 'black' wires.
