Iíve got a Haynes manual for this model ill check it over the weekend see if thereís an easy way, would you settle for a switch on the connection of camera to the loom as connecting accessories to the loom directly as you currently have done it can be subjected to surges of electricity when cranking the engine (turning the key in the ignition) which can blow the accessories you have connected.
Fitting a switch to the connection means you can switch it on after you have started the engine,
Free information and worth a thought end choice of action is up to you
Also isnít the dash in the 2010 which I also have, isnít it the same as the 2008 model stereo surround as there is connector adaptorís and dash surrounds on e-bay all for around 20pounds and before purchasing a stereo check out caraudiodirect.co.uk i always deal with them and find their stereo and speaker range very nicely priced but for conversion kits stick with e-bay.
Cheers Lenny, I have had a word with an auto electrician who said he will connect it to an ignition feed. It's such an important device I can't trust myself to switch it onn/off every journey.
As for the stereo, if that's right about the audio/steering connector block then I'm good to go; I have used caraudiodirect a few times so will look at them over the weekend for my new stereo. Cheers again.
