    I want to install a dash camera in the front and back of my car. In my current VW Rabbit I have a standard 12 Volt plug in the trunk so it was very easy. Is there access to 12 Volt somewhere in the back? Preferably linked to the car being on or off.

    Maybe consider a dual camera system like this:

    which only needs a single 12V feed to the area of the insider rear view mirror.
