    This link looks very cool, but it's not for the DNX7100, it's for the AVN6610. Can the CCD-2000 (the camera for the 7100) be taken apart and put in the license plate light too? Has anyone taken one of these apart?

    That CCD-2000 looks about the same size as my Eclipse camera. I just cut the hole big enough for the camera lens. I didn't take the camera apart. I cut up the insides of the license plate light and then epoxied the camera in place. Then mounted a LED license plate bulb in the little bit of space left over next to the lightbulb lens.

    I like it here because it gives a really nice centered view and shows the edge of the bumper so I can back up within an inch of hitting something, I originally wanted it mounted to the bottom of the tow hitch, but the view sucks and it is angled up. I wouldn't want it anywhere else except here or if there is a compatible plate mounted camera, but there isn't.

    I ended up threading my cmos-2 camera to the side of the hitch. I tow small stuff and does not interfer w towing at all. A little low but that was where i was blind, mirrors do the rest. Jvc headunit double din gives nice picture but had to throw some kc rear lights for night time. System is dynamite now day or night. Cmos was approx $30 and kc lights was a little high ($80ish) but they are quality and throw a lot of light. Also, its all black so barely even notice it. Got a nice photo of it on my ipad but upload buttons not enabled?
