Has anyone used one of these cables to power a dashcam?

I read that they can't be used with cars that have lane assist, which would disqualify MY16 Crosstrek Limited with Eyesight, but I was curious if anyone has tried?

Welcome!

I'm not sure what lane assist has to do with the power supply for the mirror - maybe what you've read is that nothing should be mounted where it will interfere with Eyesight, either by blocking the view of the cameras or by creating reflections on the glass that Eyesight is not expecting to see.

There are quite a few dash cam threads here and I'm pretty sure I've some here or elsewhere where power from the mirror has been used, rather than running a cable down to the fusebox. Btw, that's not difficult to do...
