Sorry this is an old post, but I'm curious where you placed the rear camera? I've been told to put it above the number plate and also been told its fine on the parcel shelf if you bend the camera to the correct position.Anyone use a dashcam in their Countryman? I only just noticed today that there is still power going to it after I've locked the doors. Car is plugged in and being charged via a three pin, so not sure if that has an impact.
The plan is to use it as a reversing camera, the device I have actually records the rear view constantly when the rear camera is hooked up but you can't see it in the display unless it's in reverse.LeeHughes, what do you want to use the camera for? Is it actually a reversing camera, which would only operate whilst reversing the car, or is it a rear view camera for a dash cam system? Depending on it’s use, the connections will be different.
Did yours come with rear view camera?Got my PHEV yesterday, got my Dash Cam wired up this afternoon, having trouble with my phone so have no pics of the installation.
Cable pushed nicely it the gap between the headlining & the screen, also down the A pillar, removed the side panel where the air bag switch is and connected the supply to one of the unused fuse ways. All working fine, comes on with the ignition and switches off when ignition switched off.
I’ll see if I can get a piccy of the fuse box
Yes i would like one that hides behind the rear view mirror,i'm not interested in seeing a screen.I have a Nextbase 402G which sits behind my Lexus RX rear view mirror and you completely forget its there.When you say unseen, would you go for the type that replaces your rear view mirror? or the clip behind the original rear view mirror?
