This is my first thread here since buying my Lotus Exige. I am starting this to improve my rearview through mounting a Pyle license plate camera coupled with an Autovox rearview mirror display (2 RCA inputs) and doubles as a forward looking dash cam mounted in the back of the mirror.
My intent is to use an OEM tactile switch that has the LED illumination mounted to the shift console. The concept is that the rearview camera turns on with the ignition for any backing of the vehicle and then may be left on as a rearview, or turned off with the tactile switch.
I just installed the Auto-Vox Cam 1 Super Nite Vision Environment Sensor with LED lights and the rear view mirror cam by them also model T6000 They were awesome. There is an optional wire loop you cut if you want to have the guiding lines in the rear camera. I opted not to do that I tied the license plate camera into the reverse light hot wire. Simple and straight forward. I ran the cable up the rear right side along the roof line and past the right side upper door sill down the right A pillar into the glove box. I figured to use the glove box for easy access to the camera filter and fuse. I ran the front rear view mirror to the windshield and across the upper head liner to the right A pillar down into the glove box also and connected the rear cam to the coax there. I used a ground that is on the door frame on the right that already has a ground on it and there was one that bolt that wasn't being used. That was my ground point. I then ran a accessory wire and a constant hot wire to the wiring for the radio. There was a hot there that wasn't being used so that became my Battery positive wire and the other I tied into the accessory connection that activates with the key. Other then everything be very tight it was trouble free and works awesome. I highly recommend it as a combo.
