You wire the Rear camera to the reverse light so it powers when your in Reverse,Thanks, I saw your conversion, but that's with parkings sensors?
A wireless kit might a good solution indeed, that eliminates the need for running the wires through the roof. Still need to wire the camera through the back of the license plate lights and connect it to the reverse light. I was wondering if somene had done this before?
I'm actually thinking of using my smartphone as the monitor (with an USB easycap device), as I'm using the phone for navigation and music already. An older 7 inch tablet may also be an option.You wire the Rear camera to the reverse light so it powers when your in Reverse,
and the monitor dedicated to Accessories.
That's what I'm pondering about, how to feed the wire through the boot lid (it's a hatch indeed). I don't want to drill any holes in the lid. I ordered this camera just to see how it works, but the wire does not feed through the light cover it seems.If your in a hatch the hardest part is feeding a wire through to the camera you can use a common earth ( car body or from the number plate light, so only a Single positive wire tapped from the reverse globe works.
