thanks!
I ordered mine from here
https://www.cars-equipment.com/en/shop/ ... rettyPhoto

but the tracking just shows it as in transit in destination country. and seller won't respond to my emails. ho hum. paid by paypal so can always claim and see what happens.

I am not planning to tie mine to reverse, I want to put a switch under the radio, so I can just toggle it at any time, and get a rear view shot. A lot of folk have to use a relay off the reverse lamp, as it is a PWM signal, so it is constantly on/off very fast, that can mess up the image. they use the live off the rear wiper if you have one.

I’ll look into when I get it installed at the weekend then,

That’s a different camera or well different wiring, mine hasn’t got the 26 pin plug

Right I’ve given up trying to get car play to work as I don’t think the issue is something I’ve done !

And I’m having a break from that to get the wires in for my rvc, then I can look at modifying the mounting for the grab handle Image

Didn’t think I’d have to take so much out thou lol
