Saw this while searcing the net for a backup camera and don't remember reading about it here.

Might be of interest? Don't flame me if it's a POS or a repost. :D

G-NET NAV Bypass


PS.. does a cheap day/night camera exist? I just need the camera itself!
Haven't seen this one before. It seems a little costly for only 2 inputs. I think there are similiar 2 input systems for about 1/2 the price.

Sorry to threadjack my own topic.. but llajumpvid, from memory do you think there is 3.2"s of front to back clearance in the door handle where you mounted your camera?

I am looking at the one below but it sure is a monster! The diameter is almost 1 3/8ths" but I think it will fit that way. Just not sure about the front to rear dimension... what are your thoughts?

Thks!

Why do you need night vision?

Why do you need a night vision camera. When you put it in reverse, the reverse light brightens everything to the rear. Unless you plan on having a constant on rearview option. Without night vision, cam would be significantly smaller. You can also order the OEM cam and housing.

I thought it might be nice for towing at night. I usually tow a car trailer and having the car shift on the trailer is a constant concern.. alough it never has... much.

I suppose light from a passing car or streetlight might be enough to see if things have shifted.

Its been a while since I had the tailgate apart and I wasn't thinking at the time to take pictures of the process.....but from what I remember there is a lot of room so it think it would fit depth wise. Measure the blank spot on the tailgate and subtract about 1/4 inch to see if you could cut a hole big enough for it. The 1/4 is my guess at the lip I remember being around the handle piece. My camera has the following specs and it works great at night. 1 lux minimum illumination, 130° wide angle CCD color camera, 1/3" CCD sensor, 330 lines or resolution. In town I can see as far back as you would ever need to, at least a couple hundred feet if not more. I'd say if you got a camera with a 1 lux rating (or less) your tail lights will provide enough to see a trailer behind you. You probably already know this in your search for a camera, but some people might not, lux is a measure of light sensitivity the lower the number the more sensitive the camera is.

I'm looking for a plug-n-play nav bypass like this one and I was considering buying it, but if you know of a similar system for less... please send out a pointer. Thanks.
