I read a number of posts here and spent more painstaking hours than I care to confess trying to get the power straightened out for my recent ROVE R3 dash cam installation. As we all know, that driver's-side dashboard fuse panel is ridiculously difficult to access---but not impossible with tremendous patience and non-stop self-encouragement! Since it seems that Ford mixes things up a bit on the fuse panel each year, I want to share where I ultimately landed---in hopes of alleviating some of the burden for others.

 

So here it is: My "constant power" fuse tap is the 30A "spare" in socket 28. The "ACC" fuse tap is the 10A "Delayed accessory..." in socket 2. 

 

I tried quite a number of different combinations before achieving access with this. If you have a 2021, I hope this saves you some effort. Cheers!

Why not just wire to the mirror wiring? Slap in a Mirror Tap (or similar) harness.

 

No direct wire connection (pins slip into harness connector, wire tie to wiring harness or mirror body. Took me 5 minutes). On my MKX, power goes on when engine starts and off when door open (after car shuts off).

Well, because my cam has a parking mode that requires constant power when the vehicle isn’t running. This permits the camera to record who backs into your car or hits it with their shopping cart while you’re busy stocking up in Costco. AFAIK, there’s no constant power in the mirror.
