Default Locate rear view mirror ground and hot wire

I have a 2018 Toyota Camry XSE V6. I would like to wire my radar detector into my rear view mirror. Does anyone know what color wire is the
ground wire and what color wire is hot only when the car is on? Not the constant hot wire. Thanks

White/black is typically ground.

Is there a yellow wire?

Wire is supposed to be for anti-glare mirror which only works ign on.

Use a trailer light wiring harness connector which doesn't require cutting any wires.

This car have a sun roof?

Maybe I didn't understand the question correctly, but which radar are you using? It doesn't suppose to be like that. It is super easy to install radar detector tough.. I purchased mine from RRD top list and didn't have such pain to install it.
