Hardwiring GPS

Which fuse under the dash is best to use for wiring up a GPS? I need one that is switched by the ignition key.

Please guys, need some help with this. The fuse diagram doesn't tell me which ones are switched to the ignition. I tried tapping in to the power mirrors which you would think are switched by ignition but I had a constant 12v regardless of key position. I did this project once before on my 2006 F250 but going crazy trying to remember what I tapped in to.
