I was informed it was not possible to fit ?
Is this true ? I am in uk can you both recommend anyone who can fit them
And also what cameras to buy for quality and price , thanks Shaun
I discussed this with my Mazda Dealer today and was advised that the only current way to hard wire was via the aux fuse under the bonnet as the footwell fuse box does not have one. He advised against connecting to the USB outlets as they are continually live.
The usb stay live... For 2-3 minutes after locking the car...👍I discussed this with my Mazda Dealer today and was advised that the only current way to hard wire was via the aux fuse under the bonnet as the footwell fuse box does not have one.

Later this afternoon, I fitted my Nextbase 522GW routing the cable behind the headlining, then tucked behind the door weather strip, lifted the door plastic kick plate, lifted the carpet under the front seat and threaded the cable upwards and hidden against the rear of the armrest (the front seat hides the cable) I then plugged into the cig. socket.
I can confirm this does switch off with the ignition and the 522GW powered down after 10 seconds. This is not perfect, but it at least allows the dash cam to work.
Where did they take the power from Shaun? I fitted my front and rear Nextbase cameras which was very easy BUT, have found out that all of the fuses do not go off when the ignition is turned off, they are always on and this has caused me a flat battery. Would be great if you have photos etc?I had a front and rear Nextbase 380 GWX dashcam fitted to my CX30 lastTuesday by Magna Mazda , who supplied the CX30 originally. Cost including fitting, was £249.
It appeared to me (0:14) that they used an adapter such as the Dongar to create a USB port on the back side of the Autodimming mirror. They did not show how to remove the mirror cover although there is a panel tool visible. Does anybody have experience removing the cover from the Autodimming or Homelink mirror?Adding to this conversation here as a prospective CX-30 owner, a Chinese dashcam manufacturer seems to have found the right fuse for a front dash cam, that doesn't involve tearing too much interior apart and not using the USB port/12V (website and captions are all in Chinese but it's quite self explanatory). https://www.bilibili.com/video/BV1sv411v7oy/?spm_id_from=333.788.videocard.0
Now the question is if the rest of the world also has this setup with the moonroof switches (especially for lower trims). If so then this looks to me the most elegant solution.
