    Is it possible to use Constant 12V for Power

    I have a 2022 Tesla Model S and there are very few places to tap power because the car uses a virtual fuse system. There is a constant 12v power lug in the "frunk" which is what i have the ALP currently (no pun intended) hooked up to but the system never powers down. Is there a configuration that allows for the ALP to go into a sleep/hybernation mode when the GPS registers no movement? Or should this really be wired to a switched 12v power source?

    ALP will not turn off unless you manually turn the power off if you connect it to a constant on source.
