This was my point as well. I don't see why we keep recreating the same issue. Garw is too busy to make a FAQ or edit his OP. This post is great but again getting too big. I wish the OP author would reply and make a few simple edits to the OP so we can start compiling all of this great info.I can respect that Garw is busy with production, but perhaps we could start a post that the originator could edit as we start to put down what we do know and have experienced.
It appears that, as in life, there are more spectators than players. If this new thread is not going to get real support, especially from the originator, then I feel the original long thread has more viewers and is likely to get more support for a common FAQ and instructions. Also, there are more people with orders as well as received dashes there.This was my point as well. I don't see why we keep recreating the same issue. Garw is too busy to make a FAQ or edit his OP.

apexdc - as in the direct client?
hes had a manual for a bit now... on its 2nd revision actually (1.1 added an extra page for oil sensors wiring diagram)A manual or a wiki seem more useful than threads for this kind of data. Let's hope the manual comes out soon and answers all questions.
This was covered under the main Garw page and many of us have done it. Check out the link.Hi Guys,
How do you get a backup camera to work with the GARW? Can you directly hook up a USB camera or do you need to get some sort of analog converter to USB and then use a regular back up camera? For people that have done this, what parts did you use?
When its all you got, you don't complain. In the Exige, you can't see anything behind you and trust me, I use mine all the time. Its not as convenient as one in a modern OEM system but its actually much better than seeing the reverse camera in my 3" stereo head unit, like I had before. Also, its way more dangerous not having it than waiting a few seconds and pushing a button to get it to work and almost all rear view camera invert the picture, as does mine.That has little to do with a back up camera, that is a dash cam.
1) A camera.
2) A reversible horizontal image
3) Reverse gear sensor.
You need all 3.
This dash cam option takes 5 seconds to come on, that is all you need to back up so by the time your done it had just starting coming on. The image is reversed, not only is that extremely dangerous its defeats the point. Also you need to hit the stupid button, who is going to do that?
Disclaimer, Garw is not advertising this as a back up cam, he calls it a camera source. He also says he is working on the dash cam. There is a youtub out there on it in development.
--What do you mean, and why? For me I put a usb cam on this and when the dash goes to sleep so does the camera, no need for a switch?I have my camera hooked up to a switch as I don't want to keep power to it unless I'm using it and that's probably causing some of my failures (I.e. I may need to turn on the camera sooner, etc).
