Rear View Camera

Recommended Posts

Wondered if anyone had installed a rear view camera in their Cmax. If so we're did you pickup the reverse feed ? I installed one in my previous car and picked up the feed in the boot area loom , but would want the colour code for the reverse feed .

Not as easy as that, some models require rear bumper off to trace wiring . Just thought some one might have fitted one , and know the colour code and easiest access point /pickup point.

Dont see the point of them myself i prefer to use the mirrors , i ignore the camera covered in crud far too often, and i hate the parking sensors too, very distracting

You can still use the mirrors , camera gives added protection in my view. ( Excuse the pun )

They can be quite useful if you're prone to reversing into bollards which you didn't notice before trying to park.😀 On a new car it's something like £200 for sensors or £250 for sensors + camera, so worth having I think. Not sure if I'd go to the bother of fitting it retrospectively though, and as Pete says very prone to being obscured by road muck in bad weather.

Never found mine to to be obscured as much as that. Bu if it was you can still use mirrors. So yeh worth having.
