In case you don't want to do what is often suggested here (wire into the fuse box), maybe I have something for you.
I got this for my 2017 hatch. The cord it came with was long enough. With camera mounted just to the passenger side of rear view mirror, the cord runs along top of windshield to the passenger door frame, tucked along the trim down the front of the door frame to the bottom, under the passenger seat, and into the center console. It really only has maybe a few inches of slack, it's actually quite ideal length. The only spot it's really visible is where it crosses from the upper corner of the windshield to the door frame. There's a seam in the interior there so I'm sure it could be hidden but I didn't want to start taking pieces of my interior off in order to get the cord behind without causing damage (I mean, at that point you may as well go the fusebox route).
Is this the model you went with? I see several on Amazon but it seems there's half a dozen "A118C" with minor differences and all of the lower priced ones have about 3 stars. This one seemed to rank a bit better and have more info
Here is the link It is nice and sleek, not too noticeable in the vehicle. Great Quality!!!
Edited* You can also purchase a hard wiring kit, I wired mine into my mirror.
I have an A118C & like it. Good picture & fits all requirements you listed.
EDIT: Although, the rear cam is of lower quality come to think of it.
I may spend 29 bucks on amazon for a replacement= hd cam for the rear
Had a black box G1W, it died after a few months. Instead of picking up another one, I went with this version of the A-118 and I'm glad I did. It's got a capacitor so it does better in temperature extremes and it's more discreet.
This is the one I got. I think there is an updated version though.
AUTO-VOX A118C Dash Cam Car Dashboard Camera
In Canada you need one with a capacitor so don't miss that.
I have both of these dashcams.
They are both good but this one is a little better. [link]
This one is okay.
I'm pretty sure this is it. I like how I can hide it behind my mirror. The quality is decent, and it has a battery that allows the camera to continue to record for a certain amount of time after the engine is shut off.
Most of the time I forget it's there until something fun happens on the road. Have had it for over a year and the peace of mind is worth way more than the cost of the camera.
Edit: Looks like for $15 more you can get one of a similar format that is more favorably reviewed. Rexing.
I've got a B40C (capacitor model). [link]
You might find them cheaper on eBay, either called a B40C or A118C. They're the same thing.
Also, check out [link]. Lots of good info there.
