I've recently switched from an Android phone to an iPhone and decided to add a MagSafe charger to my Honda now that I no longer need to plug the handset in with Apple CarPlay working wirelessly.
Here are a couple of photos showing the installed location (I had tested fixing it to the centre console, however this is easier to attach because the phone was liable to slip down the side of the seat):

Notes:
  • This is a genuine Apple MagSafe charger, I've used tape & shrink tubing to cover the white cable.
  • The 12v socket powers off with the car.
  • I might consider running the cable behind the centre of the dash to exit from the passenger footwell, however it looks to be a bit tricky gaining access.

Not worth adding a dual USB socket off the fuse board under the driver's side of the dash and running your dashcam and this of it? Should take about 10-20 mins tops as the wire run is so short!

My dash cam is already powered from the OBDII port and this was the easiest & quickest way to provide 20W via USB-C to the MagSafe charger because most USB-A ports only provide a maximum of 5W. It also means that I have a second USB-C port available for a passenger to use.
