    Hi All,
    Just installed my radar detector.
    I couldn’t find this posted for the 2020s as the wiring location is different. The mirrortap location on the 2020 is hiding behind the mirror stem trim (there is actually two trim pieces). Blue wire is the hot one. Don’t mess with the trying to tap the TSS as it won’t power the device. Good luck!

    What type of hardwire kit did you use? I looked on Blendmount’s website and the only option they show for the 2020 4Runner is a fuse box hardwire kit. I’ve done a couple fuse box kits but they require more hiding if wire... would really like to get the kit that taps the mirror power.

    I just reused the MirrorTap I had in my old VW. It has a in line fuse. Haven’t had any issues with it in the 4R. Once you get the trim off the tap slides in easy. You shouldn’t have to really hide any wires, as the trim covers most of it. Good luck.

    Hey man, I just wanted to say thank you for posting this. Just used it to tap the mirror power for the dashcam in our 2021. Having your post made it a little quicker and easier!

    How do you open the mirror stem trim? Take off mirror? Take off box hiding the auto dimmer camera? I'm concerned I'm going to break something... any suggestions appreciated... Thanks

    I didn’t take off the mirror. The auto dimmer is inside the mirror, so nothing to worry about there. Not sure is a 21’ is different. First try and slide it down. If that doesn’t work, just be careful and slowly pull one side of the plastic cover off and then the other side. Go slow and your should be fine. Good luck.

    Just go slow- I used a plastic trim remover to gently pop one side off first. They just snap back together when you're done. You don't have to take the mirror itself off, just the trim pieces around where it connects to the windshield/TSS module.

    Would you be able to post a few other pictures of where your wires went? Its a bit hard for me to see whether you're looking from top or bottom, and how you got in there. I know there is that casing that can slide up and down but I am not seeing any connectors and only see a wire that goes into the headliner. I am in a 2021 and have the box for that safety system next to my mirror like yours I believe.
