Front USB for your non-hardwire Dashcam or Radar Detector install

CX-5 2017 GT AWD
For people who do not want to hardwire their Dashcam or Radar Detector you can maximize use of the front USB. Using the Cigarette lighter socket inside the armrest is not ideal since it requires pulling it off the Cigarette socket every time you turn off the car, since that CIG socket is live 24/7. Not ideal for our cars battery.The front USB is the only one that shuts off after 5-15 minutes after you shut down the engine. This is my set up on the front usb. Radar Detector and Dashcam is attached to this. I just tuck it in that space behind the two cup holder. These are the two items I use for this set up.
