    Look up the OWL cam. I have it and it records and is a live feed to your phone. It alerts you when motion or any bump to you vehicle happens inside and out recording.

    Since I'm sure you've all been on the edge of your seats, I finally figured out my switch problem. When I disconnected the old front camera switch, I forgot to reconnect the ground wire for the front camera relay. It took about two hours of 12v jumpers and a multimeter to figure it out but everything is working great now. Thanks for all your help!

    Happy to help as I had basically the exact same questions. It is really easy but you just never know before you dig in and I didn't see specifics on the thread. So let's get to it.

    #1 I did connect positive and negative together like you see in the first picture. I have a bunch of stuff already connected to my battery cables and I like to keep that as clean as possible as I plan to move to the Genesis Offroad Dual Battery Kit in the future. Plus the NATIKA wire from the camera is all contained in one piece that makes its way almost half way through the engine bay along the backside of the battery. You have to fish the RCA through the firewall anyway (and the NATIKA kit has the single connection so you fish that starting at the head unit down over the steering column and through the firewall into the engine bay) so I just didn't see why I wouldn't do them all and install it the way it was intended. The manual is wrong. Definitely do red to red and black to black. I used the provided quick disconnects and then electrical taped around them on the positive, negative and RCA connections just to ensure they don't come lose.

    #2 The R-CAM does not need to be connected. There is no rear cam RCA to plug the Car Solutions kit in to and I just assume it is part of one of the existing wiring pin connections.

    #3 Once you get back there you will see it. It does need to be connected but it is the only connector into the head unit that looks like that so you can't really miss it.

    Has anyone mounted the front camera in front of the sensor garnish on a 2018 with a pro grille? Does it affect the sensor at all?

    I guess there is no option anymore to just get the front facing camera/harness and front camera switch?

    Where's everyone getting their Car-Solutions kit? I'm assuming directly from car-solutions.com or are there any other sources.

    Although the Car Solutions kit was on my list I ended up going with the Beatsonic kit since I got a deal. I was originally running Logistics DIY anytime backup kit with switch but these days needed the front camera. What I loved about this kit was the ability to switch the different amounts of time that the camera stays on. Overall I'm happy with this kit and also the camera that I bought.
    It's nice to be able to pull up to a wall without worrying about hitting it.
