How can the Prius power outlet be rewired to keep it live all the time, so I can keep my GPS plugged in when the key is removed and still have the settings available when I start up again?
Careful with the mod from costaletech. If you plan to add any other of their mods tell them you have the $5 oulet mod also. Their aftermarket products run off the same circuit and it would have them powered all the time which is "dead battery" time. The Costaletech guys are so good that they called me when I ordered the $5 kit to tell me not to do it since I was using their DVD/CD/MP3/TV add on.

Good people.

Default Dashcam issues with Cig. Lighter

Hi everyone. first post first time first issue lol..

I bought a Falcon Zero Touch HD Dash Cam and hooked it up.. It plugs into the Cig lighter with an adapter that has 3 usb ports on it. Then you plug one usb into the Dash Cam itself and thats it .. your installed and setup.. BUT when I am driving around I notice that the power goes off all the time to the dash cam.. it still runs because it has a built in batter that chargers when it is live but its a pain when you try and charge your phone or something like that..

What can I do to make this lighter always hot.. is this something that they did for some STUPID REASON..

Can someone point to me the answer as to what to do or what to buy to make this always live.. I dont care if it is off when i am out of the car it is only when I am driving around that it goes off and one..

2016 Toyota Prius

Thanks everyone
