Ignition live

Hi I'm looking to hard wire a phone charger and will be exiting the wire from the right hand side of the dash so I need to find a good ignition live somewhere under the steering column. Any ideas which would be the best to use?

Many thanks

Al

Yes.

Look at my how to on installing a dashcam.

It uses +12v ignition live.
And phones need +5v so you will also need a buck converter.

The how to install a dashcam shows you where you can tap a +12v ignition source.
