12v plug locations

Hi All,

Looking to get a dash cam in my 2020 M340i. I recall previously in my 2012 550i that there was a 12v plug above the passenger footwell. Is this the case in the G20 or is there another location to get power from away from the center console? Please advise. I would look at my owner's manual if I didn't misplace it.. and there's no electronic version of the owner manual online that I could find. Would appreciate any help.

Center console and trunk. Center console has a different, shorter outlet that may or may not work with your plug. Best solution is to steal power from the rear view mirror.

For the e-version online manual, did you try https://www.bmwusa.com/owners-manuals.html

I just put my dashcam in my 320d and used the USB type C charging socket in the centre console, rather the 12v cigarette socket which causes issues accessing the phone charging dock. However, due to the model of my dashcam, I had to make sure the cable was charging only and not a data one, otherwise the dashcam would not work
