Telferstr created the topic: Reverse Mirror and Camera
Has anyone had the reversing camera fitted that uses a section of the rear view mirror to show the picture.
My car has all the ASX 3 extras fitted apart from the reverse camera kit, which on the current model is now a standard fit and uses a 7" screen incorporated into the radio area. However the Mirror type kit does seem a bit expensive at £589.99 being the fitted price shown in the accessories listed for the ASX, but would also allow the current radio to remain undisturbed.
When viewed against wireless type cameras from maplin etc., for around £200 it seem a bit much to pay.. The main advantage is that it keeps it a standard fitting, and without having to find a mounting place for the viewing screen up on top of the dashboard somewhere. My car does have rear parking sensors, but they seem slow in acting sometimes and only come on when very near any obstruction and do not sound all that loud. Had them checked out and been advised they are working okay and up to specification.
Would appreciate any comments re the mirror type screen application should any one have experience of this system.
