Although I cannot give specific advice re wire routing on a 3008 – bear in mind that the 12V connection will need to be switched via the ignition, otherwise the dash-cam will flatten the car battery.

Most dash-cams are supplied with a cigar lighter connector, which converts the 12V vehicle voltage to 5Vdc required by the dash-can USB input.

You could consider buying one of these together with a USB A male to USB micro connector of the required length.

I have a window mounted dash-cam and have managed to hide the connecting wire by poking it behind the window pillar trim. With a centre window mounted dash-cam this could be more tricky.
You’ll probably stand more chance of getting an answer on a Peugeot forum:

Watch this for a basic guide, it waffles on for a bit but gives you the basic idea



Mine is wired up in basically the same way, Citroen C3 Picasso
