Just bought a 2018 GLA258. I would like to instal a Motorola two way radio for amateur (Ham radio) use. The radio has a remote control head and I would like to mount the bulk of the radio out of site in the rear "tire well" of the car.
Can anyone provide me with information / suggestions for best options to get 12 volts, and where to find an ignition sense line in the rear tire well area. I see there is a cigarette lighter but not sure what the fuse is capable of or if the wiring can handle a 40 watt radio? Radio will only be transmitting infrequently and for very short periods.
Thanks in advance,
