It's made my radio reception really poor though so a few questions:
    Can I cut the cable short and hardwire it to the courtesy light unit (this is permanent live?) and if I did this would the reduction in cable length reduce the interference or is the current drawn by the camera the cause of the interference?
    Alternatively would running the full-length cable running across the other side of the roof reduce the interference or is going to be the same wherever it goes?
    Ta.
    I have the same issue with poor radio reception after dash cam wiring. I have perm live connecter and ignition live taken from cig lighter. So as I see, this ignition live from cig lighter causes issues. If I pull ignition live from fuse box, will this help? What fuse should I use, it 2006. facelift LHD?

    going off the number of people reporting radio interferance im guessing either the stock heads unit is not shielded correctly or more likely the hardwire kits are creating a large amount of electrical interferance due to the 12v-5v transformer in them. ive got currently 4 things linked off the back of my cig lighter with no interferance (switched live for aftermarket head unit, power to a dc-dc convertor hidden behind my CID screen, and 2 control units for orange beacons due to my work involving parking in not well lit roads.) ill be wiring in a dashcam myself soon so will report back on my experiance of radio aswell, though im using a aftermarket and originally quite expensive clarion double din unit (nx-702e with its external dab module for reference)

    I hard wired mine into the back fuse box, as I found this a lot easier. I have a next base dash cam, and I bought the hard wire kit when I bought it from Halfords (off the top of my head I think it was £10.00) with miles of cable to enable you to cut where you want to. In my case I just gently pulled the rubber strips from the top of the windscreen, put the cable behind there, then did the same for the front and back doors, down the back pillar then into the boot (Hatch) then got put the piggy back fuse into a switched fuse, and that's it. I have not had any radio interference whatsoever and the cam works as it should. I should mention that as the hard wire kit comes with all the cables and the piggy back fuse so the hardest part was running the cable, and that took all of 5 mins. It took longer for the dash can to fix to the windscreen that it did to wire it in. All in all was probably 30 min job. Hope this helps
