Hi

Having watched a few YouTube videos I've decided to fit a dashcam to my 2019 Octavia (it's a Northern Irish model bought in Belfast if that makes any difference) but when I compare the fusebox layout in my car to the ones in various videos it's different so I'm not sure which fuse to use. Can anyone help from the attached photo? I don't have one of those screwdriver things for testing which fuses are live etc and don't really want to buy one just for this job.

Thanks in advance.

If you are looking for true ignition live signal, there isn’t one. I can’t recall from memory if there is one on the board you can tap into but on Tuesday will try and see what there is.

I used fuse 47 for mine (Octy mk3, UK spec, 2018), rear wiper, ignition controlled. Piggy back fuse, standard size.
