Hello everyone, I just got my hands on a new dashcam system and I'm just about to finish installing it, does anyone know where I can easily have access (on the battery side) to a 12V port/wire controlled by key ignition (known as an ACC port)? Thanks a lot for any suggestion

The most simple is the factory accessory fog light plug next to where the tools are located. You have both switched, constant, and ground at your finger tips... Sometimes the plug is tucked in, you might have to dig just a little.

I was looking for that accessory fog light plug but not able to find it in the right side battery compartment, can you take a picture from yours please? thanks

Show us what you have when you're done with the install. I'd like to do one of these.
this is the one I ended up buying it, I was looking for something simple, no screen, to record when I start the bike and shut off when bike is off, but also something I can retrieve any file recorded without pulling the micro sd card from its dvr, cameras are good quality and are small, dvr fit right under the seat and the power controller I placed beside the battery, overall I'm happy with it, I'll take some pics of the install and a short video:
