Yep, when you turn off the ignition the power to the 12v socket drops straight away. It's easy to route the cable into the dash via the cubby hole in front of the gear lever, behind the glove box and behind the trim up the LHS A post. I just use a double USB 12v bullet.

Most of the new dash cams use hardly anything if hard wired. I’ve just had a new Nextbase 322GW hard wired and it only draws from the battery if it senses movement in parking mode, then it starts recording for a short while then switches off again. So the amount of battery it uses is minute. Worth checking if yours has parking mode and how much power if any it uses.

Mine has a small battery that will power it for a few minutes in the case of a bump whilst parked up.
