I am currently working on installing a cheap LCD/backup camera system. Does anybody have any experience wiring these cameras to a ignition on power source? I am thinking that I would like to wire the camera to a hot source/ignition relay rather than my backup signal so that I could switch the monitor on while not in reverse.
Knowing that it is a cheap camera, I know I run the risk of torching it from always being on, but what do you guys think?
I am planning on running the LCD using switched ignition power from the interior fuse box and an add a circuit.
The other thought is to find an On/Off SPDT switch and run switched power to both items. However, I have had trouble finding this type of switch.
Would anybody do it differently? Suggestions?
