Looks like about 10 feet from USB to fuse box then about 3 feet from fuse box to end of pig tail. It is long enough for hidden installation in my full size truck.
When the vehicle is turned off and the parking mode cable is connected the Dash Cam 45 will automatically record and save video anytime motion is detected.
I would think it is possible, but there are 2 items I’d check: 1. Is the fuse you’re tapping rated for enough amperage to handle the now 3 loads you are demanding. 2. Is there enough space in the fuse box to tap 2 more jumpers (wires).
There is no need to add an additional fuse when wiring the Parking Mode Cable. Information about connecting the cable to power can be found by visiting https://www8.garmin.com/manuals/webhelp/dashcam45-55/EN-US/GUID-4893EF84-E82C-4A21-8FFD-ED26F0AC0AD6.html.
When wiring the parking mode cable the cable must be connected to a constant power source and a switched power source. This enables the camera to detect when the vehicle has been turned off.

I’m not sure what type the plug is. I think it’s a mini usb but not positive.
It fits in Garmin cameras so I’d be careful if your using a different brand than Garmin.
Info About Garmin 010-12530-03 Parking Mode Cable, 6.60" x 2.70" x 2.00", Black (Reviews From Amazon)
Works exactly as intended with no issues.
Ignore the review with the long rambling complaint about saved parking mode videos. The person who wrote the review obviously doesn’t know how to use/change the settings in the Garmin “drive” app.
-Go to settings
-Select Parking Mode
-Select one of the following Motion – Impact – Motion/Impact
If there are a lot of cars or foot traffic passing by your camera while parked and you don’t want a video every time this happens then set it to record only if it detects an impact. It should only be set to record motion if you’re curious to see whats going on outside your car. Do not set it to record motion for the purpose of catching a thief. If they break in to your car they are going to steal the camera with the memory card and the motion detection will have been pointless.
On a quick side note, the reason parking mode videos are automatically saved is because when the recording occurs you’re obviously not in the car. It’s saved to prevent it from being overwritten before you have the opportunity to view it.
Installation is straight forward and didn’t take long. If you’re comfortable with performing basic wiring on your vehicle than installation should be easy. If you’re not up to the task then any stereo shop and/or the majority of mechanics should have no problem. I found the quickest/most efficient method for installation was to purchase fuse taps(2). If you don’t know what those are a quick Google search will provide all the info you need. They can be purchased on Amazon or at any auto supply store.
Only complaint/drawback is the price Garmin charges for this. Garmin should really include this with the camera or at the very least lower the price.
It works exactly the way it’s supposed to when wired correctly. It does cost quite a bit, but at the end of the day you just want it to work correctly, and that’s exactly what it does. I still think this should have come in the box with the purchase of the dash cam however.
I purchased this cable for my Garmin Mini 2 Dashcam. I didn’t like the idea of having to connect to the power outlet on the console with the power cord visible. The USB plug routes the cord upward, allowing you to tuck it between the windshield and the headliner. It was easy to “carefully” remove the trim on the driver’s side A pillar and route the cord under the dash.
Installation note: My car is a 2002 Acura RSX, it was necessary to feed the wire from under the dash up to the camera location because of the circuit box on the cable.
I have the luxury of a factory service manual for my car so I was able to locate the necessary fuses to power the camera in parked and driving modes. I also purchased fuse taps to connect the wiring to the car. These plug into the fuse panel, maintaining the existing circuit and provide an additional fused line for the camera. The additional fuse should not exceed that of the original circuit. This eliminates the need to modify the wiring harness of the car.
I’ve set the parking mode limit to two hours to prevent undo drainage of the battery.
I guess it works as advertised. You can modify the voltage cut-off by opening it up and manually adjusting it via a toggling switch. I have left 2 cameras (66W and a Mini) in parking-mode for 5 days in my pickup with no noticeable impact on the charge state of the battery. As many have said, annoying that they don’t include it, but the cameras are some of the most compact and high quality dashcams on the market. I am a bit disappointed that they are not adopting USB-C on the products yet such as the 66W. Let’s hope the premium they charge is invested into the next gen of compact and 4k cameras with improved driver assistance features.
The media could not be loaded. Having my Garmin dash cam ever vigilant is a peace of mind. I’m grateful for my vehicle, and want to preserve and keep it looking nice. I’ve had people in other vehicles hit other cars I’ve owned in the past while parked in the parking lot where I work. The damage was superficial, but still frustrating for hit and run, where now I’m on the hook for the deductible to have it fixed. I hate to sound like that person, but if you hit my parked car and I catch you license plate on video, I’m going to tell the cops and insurance on you.
I use this on my Garmin Mini 2 and it works perfectly! Unlike most people here, I didn’t care for parking mode so I joined both the red and yellow wire together and used a 5amp fuse tap. The cheaper 3rd party non-Garmin hardwire options don’t work as well (camera thinks it’s connected to computer for whatever reason) and this is the only official Garmin hardwire option there is. I just wish it was more like $15 instead of $30.
Recently purchased two Garmin 55 and two parking mode wiring harness. The camera is great in its small size and function. I didn’t want a cord coming down and plugging into the cigarette lighter even if the cord is long enough to be hidden in the headliner and molding. If you are going to that effort you might as well make it seamless and hard wire it to your fuse box under your steering wheel. Youtube has some good videos and for a first time installer it was easier than I thought. The two thing you must buy from an auto parts store (about $8 each if they have the extra fuses and about $6 if they don’t ) are two add-a- fuse adapters – make sure you get the right size add a fuse adapter as one car had the low profile fuses and the other didn’t. Because the end of the wire of the harness is bare wire and you need to crimp it into the adapter to plug into the fuse panel. Each adapter has two slots (use a 10A for both the battery and the accessory wire) so that it will have two fuses to accommodate the dash cam and whatever was being powered originally. This third wire is ground and that does not need an adapter.
Once you get it up and running it is seamless and you do not need to do anything once you start your car. It does have a legal notice that comes up every time with a prompt to “agree” but you don’t need to press any button as it will go away in about 10-15 seconds. In fact, you probably shouldn’t as anytime you touch this small camera as it is very easy to alter the aim point by mistake.
About the parking mode. It is motion activated and I turned it off since one time I came back to my car and I had 17 parked mode videos stored. Apparently light and distant movement trigger the activation. Still, the parking mode wiring is exactly what I needed for keeping the console uncluttered and not even noticing the camera as it barely peeks out beneath my rear view mirror.
Gave a 3 star for installation because to achieve a seamless (neat) install takes moderate skill. I give a 5 if you don’t care about exposed wiring.
The instructions are great and have an easy to follow schematic diagram anybody can understand.
But it’s nice to hide the wiring through the headliner and that might not be something that everyone can do easily.
Once installed it works great. The activation is impressive especially at night. I’ll review a parked video and the camera starts filming when the movement is 180’ out.
I noticed that it has some hiccups in very cold weather 0-20f. It’ll record fine when parked but when I start my truck it will sometime shut off and restart several times and then works fine.
That could be a issue limited to me. Who knows. But once the camera (Garmin 45) warms up it runs great at start up.
I think the electronics are affected by the cold. Worth the money. And worth the time for a neat and clean install.
Works perfectly with Garmin Dashcam Mini. It’s designed with tapping fuseboxes or power sources located far away from the center of your windshield. If you have a powered rearview mirror like me and use that to supply the dashcam, be prepared to hide a good amount of wiring. Luckily my Mazda CX3 has a big plastic sensor housing box right behind the mirror that everything fit neatly in.
If you don’t care about parking mode or are worried it will drain your battery when you leave the car parked for extended periods of time, just solder the ACC and BATT wires together and hook them up to switched 12v source.
I bought this for my garmin dash cam 55 to eliminate the annoying cable that is plugged in my cig lighter. I had this professionally installed about almost 2 months now, connection to my car’s battery work well so far, did not have any problems since the installation. It works great when car is parked while at the store shopping to monitor the car. Just be mindful of plugging it on all the time for constant power when car is in parked mode and engine is not running, it will cause draining of your car’s battery. I have to unplug mine when parked overnight or when away for a few days.
