    Continued from PART I
    Having carefully measured the centre line I used the 28mm hole cutter supplied with the camera which makes a clean job in the GRP

    rear view camera

    next time your Council friendly dust truck is outside your house take a good look at it these vehicles they are all fitted with bullet type rear, side and front view cameras plus the reverse warning siren plus multi screen monitor they have been using these systems since Blair gave Brussels the nod to implement another compliance that this country has to adhere too :Smile:

    This was how it was apart from it had turned considerably rusty and the reverse camera was no good with bikes onboard.

    Unfortunately monitors don't photograph very well but just to give you the viewpoints ( actual picture is very good )

    I've contacted the seller of the top one about getting me a 90 degree version which will be more suited to rear view rather than reversing.

    Thanks John
    Seller is getting me a 90 degree unit (delivery two weeks) £33
    Can also get me 60 degree but I'll try this first.

    Andy was it a simple case of connecting in the new camera on a spare AV input ? I assume you have 2 inputs and 1 already in use with the top camera ?

    I have a similar issue and my top factory fitted camera is good for reversing but nothing else even after playing about with the angle, this idea may solve it for me.

    Also is your top camera activated when reverse gear is selected or is it on all the time ?

    I originally had a dual camera with two seperate cables to my monitor so I have only substituted the dual for two singles.
    Rear view on AV1 reverse on AV2
    The cameras are fed by the monitor and come on with the ignition, I manually select AV1 or AV2

    OK thanks.

    So you avoided the nice cable run task from back to the front, the part I love most:cry:
