      Has anybody installed a dash cam on a MK7.5 Golf R with constant and switched power? Does anybody have a fuse diagram for the MK7.5R? Everything I've researched for MK7 Golf Rs shows fuses in different locations and MK7.5 has more active fuses. Just curious which fuses would be best for tap a fuses. Thanks in advance!

      Thanks! I think I saw this already. The battery constant power in my car looks like it has an extra 5 amp fuse being used that isn't there on Mk7Rs and some of the other fuse configurations are different. Curious what I'm actually tapping into. This is how my fuse layout looks like.

      pull that twenty amp fuse on the bottom right and see if the power outlet works with a phone charger or whatever. if it doesnt you know you can add a fuse to that location and have the dash cam run when the car is on. if you want it to run all the time i cant help you.

      Does anybody have a fuse diagram for the 2018 Golf R yet? Any VW techs on here that could share that info from a shop manual? Been busy and still haven't gotten around to installing the dash cam but I'm pretty sure I can figure out a constant and switched power supply. I've done some research and I've seen various options but I'd also like to know what I'm tapping into and the 2018 Golf R fuse box is definitely using more fuses than any diagram, post or videos for Mk7 Golf/GTI/Golf R I've seen so far. I'm also aware of moving the 20 amp fuse for the 12V power outlet one step up for constant power but honestly I don't want to go that route since I have an LED charger in the car that would unnecessarily draw power when I don't need it to. Thanks in advance if anybody could post the fuse diagram!

      Installed a lighted boost gauge yesterday into my 2018 using an add-a-fuse, and it looks like:
      - the top two rows of tiny fuses are always hot, even with car off
      - the third row of tiny fuses is on with ignition only

      Also waiting to see what info we get here. I have my Uniden R3 mounted (Blendmount), and I have the direct wire kit...but I'm at a standstill as I can't figure out what the correct next step is.

      I've considered the add-a-circuit, but like OP mentions, the R fuse box is busier than the fuse boxes in all the online DIY guides I've seen so far.

      Solved my particular issue (which was that I wasn't sure what to do in the fuse box in order to add my radar detector hard wire).

      Used an add-a-circuit fuse tap (mini) and followed some of the wire routing guides. Works great, and looks so much better.

      I ended up using fuse tap add a circuits for both my constant and switched power. I used the 3rd mini fuse (5amp) on the top left for my constant power. I think this is for the security lift sensor. For switched power I used the 6th last mini fuse (10amp) on the bottom row of mini fuses. I think this is for one of the front headlight DRL. Ground was attached to the lower left bolt connected to the metal chassis. Been running it this way for about a week and a half with no problems to report.

      hmm... when i voltage tested the 3rd row of minis, i found most of them were 12V even with start button switched off.. but you guys say they are ignition only.. i wonder if when i open the door it automatically powers up those fuses.. i can't test it.. cause any time i am near the car or open the door, it will activate..

      Hi everyone! I'm a little late to the party but I just bought a '19 Golf R two weeks ago.

      I went with this one for my Valentine One. Problem is: the power cycles every time the car does a start/stop so I get to listen to the V1's startup beeps every time.

      Perhaps instead of ignition, it might be better to use a fuse that's on whenever the accessories are on. I still haven't found a fuse map for this car. Suggestions, anyone?

      Go to V1 website and get the BOB, Brown out Booster that may fix that issue. I did not get one for mine since I turn off the Auto stop start each time or run in DSG Manual. I believe you can also code out the auto stop start if you want.
