    Morning All
    Help me out here if you can please...
    I usually hardwire my dash cam to the cigarette lighter fuse.
    I tried this on my Freelander 2 2013 using fuse F52 but it appears to be permanently live...?
    Can anyone suggest an alternative fuse please or is F52 ok?
    Many thanks

    I have the same issue with our family Ford Kuga. I just leave it powered the whole time.
