eas - 714.369.8524 | Reverse License Plate Camera with LED
Im looking into buying some sort of small camera that will stay on and that is waterproof so that I can attach it to my aux in / RCA video in to the M5.
Anyone have any opinions or suggestions?
Does this reverse cam connect via RCAs/aux in? or through the Nav unit itself?

Running the wiring through the rubber boot is a real PITA. I managed to push a bit of coat-hanger wire through the rubber boot first, then tied the wiring to it, and then smearing vasaline all over the wiring made it a lot easier to pull through.the wiring is not that hard. its all of 5 wires if i remember correctly(12v power, ground, reverse light, video + and -) all is done in the nav location. the worest part of the job is running the wires through the rubber boot for the trunk lid to the trunk and getting the camera to mount right as its not a super secure design. it will be finding all the parts thats a pain as it took quit awhile for me to find the used tv tuner/ant. but i have read that it can be done with a video switcher that you can get from bmw. all the info you need including part numbers are in a bmw camera install pdf manual.
