My other option is to let it record all night long. If I unplug it, I sometimes forget to plug it back in.
Use one of the Upfitter Switches as the power source and wire it to a universal cigarette lighter/power point behind the dash. I just did this with a Garmin GPS installation on my 06, and it works exactly as you are wanting.
