    Backup Camera Interface

    I have someone who will make them if we get enough interest. It would work by hijacking the stock nav screen. As soon as you put it in reverse it would default to the camera image and return to normal once back in drive.

    PLEASE POST IF INTERESTED!

    Re: Backup Camera Interface

    This would be nice.

    This would be like the hack for the DTS that intercepts the ribbon cable going to the display isn't it?

    Correct no other way to hack it since the only factory video input requires hitting the aux key.

    You going to donate your old nav unit for testing?
    Do they need the 08+ model as well?
    I don't expect the display attachment method to the motherboard to have changed from year to year but who knows...

    I'm down as well if it automatically switches to backup camera when in R.

    Re: Backup Camera Interface

    I'd possibly be interested. I'd have to weigh my desire for the backup cam against cost and ease of installation.

    Interested for sure. What would the cost be? Also how it would look.

    Sounds quite interesting, and would make my STS easier for my wife to use.

    I'm interested. It's a bitch seeing out of these things at night with tinted windows, even mine at only 35%.

    I would need to know the cost before committing though.

    Have you happened to disassemble the nav unit before?
    I'd like to see some high resolution shots of each side of each circuit board I was thinking about it the other day and it's possible that there might be a serial (rs-232/uart/ttl) interface or a jtag interface that was used in manufacturing diagnostics a lot of devices have them still on the circuit board and just have no headers connected to them. If this is present it's possible to connect to it via a computer and possibly gain access to the hardware. This is commonly done in home wifi routers to run dd-wrt firmware instead of the factory firmware and the xbox, etc. chances are slim but it is possible that it may be present.

    Depending on how this current hijacking of the nav display pans out for the rear camera we will likely have to do some disassembly of the nav unit anyways and I guess I'll have a chance to dig into it then.

    (My car is at the dealer, yet again, this time for broken lumbar support that they cannot seem to fix properly so I cannot tear into my own nav unit at this time to look into it.)

    I'd probably be interested as well. Like others have mentioned these cars are a pain to see directly behind you.
