Default Exact fuse to tap for a parking mode dash cam

Hi guys before I get flamed, I already did a few searches on hard wiring dash cams and some of the info still sound like Greek to me (or I haven't come across the right one yet). I also want to disclose that I managed to install a PS navigation bypass myself so I am comfortable doing electrical work with clear instructions. So being in doubt right now, I just wanted to double check so I don't fry anything.

For reference, this is what I have for the project:
DASHCAM https://www.amazon.com/Vantrue-R2-Ca...ywords=vantrue
FUSE HOLDER https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
HARDWIRE KIT https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

The purpose: to install this dashcam in a 2016 GS that also records during parking mode.

Mainly, I am just looking for a quick answer on
1) which recommended fuse to tap (picture or exact description of location would be awesome)
2) what additional fuse I need to buy to plug in the fuse holder

Thanks in advance!

Not sure what you mean by parking mode but you may reconsider if you are planning to have the camera record 24/7 even when the car is off. This may cut suck a lot of power from your battery...

Oh yeah there's an option to switch that on and off when I park. What I meant was that I want to make sure it can be powered if I choose to have parking mode on.

I've been on Parking mode for the last year. Meaning 24/7 recording, most high end dash cams have a low voltage auto cutoff so your battery will never die. If u haven't done it yet, I can take a picture on what fuse to tap.
