Default 2017 Fusion w/ Lane Departure Wnshld Cam & Blendmount MirrorTap Pwr Cord

We have a 2017 Fusion Sport w/ Ford's optional Lane Departure windshield mounted camera system ( see pic attached ) and I'm considering a Blendmount using their MirrorTap MTX Series Power Cord for our iX.

However I'm VERY, very leery of tapping any of Ford's Control Modules on this car. After delivery last October we had 4 months of intermittent overnight battery drain issues that required many trips to the dealership along w/ complicated troubleshooting by dealer & Ford techs & engies to determine a solution ( replacing the Body Control & Audio Control Modules plus software/firmware updates ).

So - very selfishly I'm hoping someone else has been the guinea pig and installed the Blendmount with the MirrorTap MTX Series Power Cord in a 2017 Fusion w/ the Lane Departure System.

Anyone? How's it working for you - any issues?

Thanks in advance.

If you mount your iX under this then the iX's GPS receiver may not receive a good GPS signal which will negatively impact its GPS related features.
