Where is best to wire in a Dashcam

I have had a dashcam with my current Ford Edge for about 2 years and just don't think I would want to live without it. I had to wire in my own 12v USB port into the fusebox as all the 12v AUX (lighter plugs) were all always on and not switched with the iginition. As I don't drive every day and the dashcam does pull power when on, i wanted a switched power line so that it will turn on when the car is powered on, and back off when shut down.


I am wondering if anyone had done the leg work and know what spare fuse ports inside the cabin are switched with the ignition?

I read in the Niro manual that the 12v outlets are NOT always on, they switch on when the car starts. So maybe just plugging the power into that would work.

Wire to accessory plugs. They are switched.
