What routing did you use for the rear camera? i.e. headliner/top or under the lower door trim and carpet?We ran the wires between the liner and windshield down the driver pillar to the fuse box and tied into a constant and accessory there. Was pretty quick and easy. Took about an hour to install front and rear along with running wire.

How is the headliner attached along the sides. I've heard of magnets or something near the rear of the sunroof. I'm always cautious to mess around with it for fear of messing something up.I actually dropped down the headliner enough to run my wires behind the curtain (as in further away from edge toward the inside of the vehicle) so that it would not be in the way. This required removing the B-pillar trim as well, which has a grommet you have to replace once you remove it. It’s designed to work in conjunction with the side curtain air bags and must always be replaced with new when you remove it.
What is the sequence to remove it?There are two screws underneath the light covers. Then it just pulls down (with some force).
But why would you want to power it from the overhead light console? It would be better to run a dedicated power wire that only operates when the key or accessories are on. Otherwise it will drain your battery.
Others have installed them before. Just search the forum for “dash cam”.

Yep, that is for sure, my camera requires 5v, but firstly I need to open somehow overhead light. And unfortunately I do not know exactly how.Just a word of caution, you will need an in-line 12V/5V transformer if you are connecting your camera to a 12V source.
Your photo shows a cable coming in from the left that is plugged into what appears to be a USB power source. Is that the power cord to the camera, and is the USB power source an existing source or one that was added during your install?I used the power from the auto dimming mirror
