    More advice needed from you wonderful people.....

    My recently aquired satnav accepts an input from a reversing camera, so I plan to buy and fit one. I'd appreciate any recommendations on which type, where best to locate it, and cable routing.

    All responses greatly appreciated, as usual. :Smile:

    Not a snooper Meor, it's a Garmin Dezl 560.

    A bit more info; I don't need this as a rear view mirror, it will be purely for parking assistance when on my own (when Jill is with me she just goes and looks out of the rear window!) It's a rear lounge MH with a large rear window, so the only problem is when reverse parking into a roadside space the car behind "disappears" as I get close.

    But should be plenty of choice for garmin navs.




    Best of luck

    i fitted this one in the rear skirt. really neat and easy to wire up as you can run the wires along the chassis and come up under the dash,through engine compartment. :thumb:

    mine was around £40. wired to reversing light, so when reverse selected sat nav screen auto changes to reversing camera.:thumb:
