From the fuse box or the solinoid are good points.

I'd splice into the 2nd point of the ignition wire with an in-line fuse, then go from there, that way it will all shut off when you take out the key.

Personally. I took a permanent live from the starter solenoid. This is switched via a relay which is triggered from the ignition first "accessory" click. Taken from the protected side of the fuse board. Now i have a fuseboard just for my junk. So far ive put my CB radio on it.

Should be fine on the "accessory" circuit - ignition position 1 for heater fan and radio. Wiring off the solenoid isn't necessary, but a good idea if you end up wanting to add more - use decent sized cable.
