is your camera one of the number plate ones?

 

if so could it not be the power supply to light up your number plate?

Thinking of getting one of these seen a few on ebay. Quick question I've noticed the mic is on the left. Do you have any problems with voice clarity etc. due it being so far away on a standard rhd car. Plus where did you mount the GPS antenna and has that ever had any problems with signal.

Could be that then, mine had two little scres in the top of the unit above the drive, took them out before I fitted.

If they've used shipping screws I'm surprised they didn't have warning stickers or tabs on them.

Cd trays can bounce around in transit and mess up the alignment.
Older Ford6 disc radios used to have a keyhole on the top for a big green plastic shipping plug
