Reverse Camera?

Recommended Posts

Good day everybody

Did any of you added a reverse camera to their Fiesta Mk7?

Just curious how it turned out...

Cheers!

I did.

At first it was an 'impress your mates' gadget. but after a few weeks i find i'm using it more and more.

It's a handy piece of kit

Would you mind sharing the model and maybe one picture so I can see where you added the camera?

Cheers!

Hi mate,

Just updated my profile with my model, here are a couple of pictures (albeit a bit wet) but are good enough to see the Ford setup...

Thanks mate for sharing!

Any link where you've bought the camera from?

By the way, you replaced also the mirror right?

Cheers

Sorry if i've confused you but it was part of the pack when new from Ford. You get the camera, parking sensors, auto lights and auto wipers.

Ok, now I understand. What was the name of the Ford pack?

Parking sensors, rear cameras.....in a fiesta???? Is it me or is that a bit over kill? I'd get it in a Mondeo but a small little Fiesta? Not and option I'd personnally pay for, but if you have the money then why not.

Well, parking sensors (after market ones) are quite cheap and working well. As for the rear camera, that's also relatively cheap to buy and add.

But you are right, it is a small car...parking it is easy job :)

Well you can park manually too lol.

Its more about look what my car can do. I love all the technology, amenities and gadgets Ford have stuffed into the Fiesta, and now even more so - the focus.

As much as I love 'driving' I have an automatic, and if I went for the new Focus I would certainally opt for the park assist, city brake assist, lane assist, steer assist, powershift auto box etc etc. Even if not using these things constantly I'd still be happy to know my car could do this stuff. And who wouldn't be smug showing off all these gadgets to their mates the first time they bring home their new car. :lol:

Maybe I'm a car snob lol

edit: ...or geek :P

I wasn't initially after the camera to be honest, as I also thought why put parking sensors on a small car. I really wanted the auto lights and wipers and the camera came as part of the pack (not sure what the pack was called).

After using it for a while i see the camera not so much as a strict parking tool but something for extra rear peripheral visibility , (sounds one of the same thing i know) but it works well

Now, wait for the delivery, and to install

Great find Lez!

I guess the cam will fit the Fiesta, right? Where is supposed to be attached?

Please keep me posted about the install because I am also thinking to buy something like this. When will your products arrive?

That's perfect fit in my opinion.

I will get one myself, but I will buy one monitor rather than giving up the mirror.

No, you will not give up the mirror, the reverse cam will displayed on the GPS screen, the mirror be a mirror all the time...
