Hi all,

just wondering if anyone using the below that I found online.

at present, what I have onboard is a rear cam installed near the number plates and hooked up full time to a small screen that I stuck to the glass partition between the seats and intercooler. So whenever I look at the rear view mirror, I can see the screen and therefore whatever is behind me. Problem is resolution is rather low and almost useless in the night. pic as per below.

Just trawling for options and opinions.

It took me a couple of weeks of trial and error but I finally setup a decent always on rear view camera that plays well with my android head unit. It has a wide enough view to help with blind spots but with enough quality to determine what vehicle is 10+ ft behind you.

I use this for storing my ripped music and I can see it unlike the head unit.
the freedompop card died, and I have another I have not tried, or maybe freedompop went TU
The camera app has gotten glitchy and has been driving me nuts lately
