I believe you already have a spare12v connection in the headliner. I used this to install my OEM auto dimming mirror on my EXL. I would pull out the dome light/sunglasses unit and see if you have that connector already there as I did.

thanks a lot for your tips... finally discovered a light blue cable inside the black connector in the console, i think holds monroof wiring and or map lights.... that cable has a very weak signal and gives aprox 11vol when ignition is on, in fact when the keys are inserted, and also has some timming behaviour ,,, i mean has a minute or something before fading away, which for my dashcam is not a problem.... of course i have added a transistor or mosftet to source from that signal and power my camera,,, hope works to someone else
