So, this being my first vehicle with a huge camera/sensor array behind the rear-view mirror, I'm kinda unsure the best place to mount the dash cam.

Seems like the drivers side puts it too far down/out into line of sight, but passenger side makes it so it's kinda blocked by the car's camera/electronics "pod".
Going down below doesn't seem like a valid option either, due to it being in the line of sight.....

Has anyone mounted theirs yet? If so, where did you choose as your mounting point?

I installed a Fitcamx dash cam for a Gen 11 Honda Civic, and it fits perfectly. Sometime after I bought the cam and posted a good review to Amazon, the company's website has been updated to indicate that it fits the 2023 Integra.

Fitcamx Dash Cam for 2022 Honda Civic/ 2023 Acura Integra

It's not the best dashcam in the world, nor is it the cheapest. But for clean installation look, I think it's the best option.

Thanks for sharing. What resolution did you get and how are you liking the video quality?

Alright, well, that was a pain in the arse, but I just did a Viofo A129 Plus Duo with a hardwire kit this afternoon. I put the front one up near the top of the drivers side just far enough away from the instrument pod to have that out of view. Ran the wires for the hardwire and rear camera up into the headliner, then tucked them around the top corner near the drivers door, and pulled out the weatherstripping and ran them down inside that channel to the fuse box area. I didn't want to deal with trying to run them in the A pillar due to the airbag factor, and this actually worked great.

The rear camera cable I just tucked under the door sill trim all the way back to the rear seat , then went up along the side of the rear seat to get up to the rear camera. Due to the way that hatch is configured, it doesn't have a terrific view, but it's not too bad.

The biggest pain in the butt was getting the hardwire kit working. There's a grounding bolt way up inside next to the fuse box, but I couldn't easily get in there, so I ended up grounding to another nearby bolt. My biggest issue is that things just would not turn on, until I realized that the unused fuse slot I used for ACC (number 13) actually only powers on with the engine running, not with accessory power on. Once I started the car, it all turned on and worked as expected. I liked that I was able to use fuse slots that are not currently used by the car, so I'm sure I'm not interfering with things. They definitely give you plenty of extras!

Will let you know how things work once I try it out for a few days. Right now I'm testing out "parking mode" with it set to take a picture every second in a sort of time lapse, so we'll see how that works out. I also set the hardwire kit to power down at the highest voltage cutoff it had, because I care about the dash cam way less than I care about being able to start my car.
