Thinking/reaching outside the box with this mod? Maybe some electronic breaker (??) steps in to save the screen/mirror???

My test would then be to leave in reverse for an extended period of time to see if it can handle that action....
Wow, Science Fair 507!

Compared to robust dedicated rear view cameras/screens, I would agree this hardware is not made for full time action.

I was just thinking the other day about how cool it would be to be able to turn the camera ON at any time. I will definitely do this mod. Thanks for the writeup, pics, and video.

I am putting this on the list! Thanks for the write-up.

I have a small trailer that I was trying to back into a tight spot yesterday to unload it. I had to back down a long gravel road and the trailer was so small that I kept needing to put it back in drive to correct it's position. The camera was great when backing up but I couldn't see it when I was correcting it's position. This would be a great time to use the camera.

The RV mirror sucks to use in the DC. I would LOVE to have a camera letting me see better back there. Thanks again - rep to you for ingenuity!

I've seen back-up cameras at Advance Auto for under $100. Installation can't be too difficult - unless you added the Homelink mirror.

Would be easier to install a small screen or have it linked to an aftermarket radio with as screen.

Can anyone suggest where I can tap into the video signal from the 09 backup camera? I will be installing a nav HU in my truck soon which can accept a composite video signal from a backup camera. I'd rather use the built in camera if possible, rather than having to install another one
