Hi All


My job for the weekend was fitting reversing camera and monitor which is automatically activated when reverse gear is engaged. all for a total price of £36.00  (camera in number plate light and monitor) plus my time fitting it





camera in number plate light,



rubber tap washers to level monitor to dash



monitor fitted and unobtrusive but visible



monitor comes on when reverse gear engaged


well pleased with the result.


Parts shown on Internet buys section.

Yep thanks Clive.
just make sure you put in a two amp inline fuse when you come off reversing light supply cable for protection if cable ever gets damaged it will then blow that fuse. I picked up cable by removing deep plastic pocket behind reversing light in boot.
On the monitor you have to change the cable outlet to other side just 4 small screws to remove bottom plate pull off cable tie from one post and fit onto post other side make a small cut for new position refit base then monitor cable connections will tuck away behind door rubber seal.
If you tow a caravan consider running a second video cable at the same time as monitor has two video inputs I think yellow in for car camera and if White is used that will get priority over number plate cam so if caravan is hooked up then camera on caravan will show automatically and not the antara camera.
you will have to let us know how you got on Clive Edited by: Bigjohnsparky

No the touch and connect does not have the facility for reversing camera and not able to get a interface added this is why I have a seperate monitor and in a much better position to view I didn't want to change the touch and connect head.
I can now see behind the caravan when that's hooked up

Hi Roadster780
Sorry no I don't
I took the supply cable from reversing light the hardest part is getting cables from back of vehicle to the number plate light and getting through the rubber from vehicle to boot then run cables under carpet up to drivers door post to monitor
