I see, I never installed the cargo cam feature because I do not have one but I guess I will now, thanks.

Actually being able to turn the fcam back on without the cargo cam feature would be better choice in my opinion.

At a risk of threadjacking, does anybody have their front cam setup lower down, like as an underbody/rock cam? I don't have much use for a front cam for parking etc, but it would really come in handy on trails.

I actually tried placing the cam up high like coolspot did but just did not feel comfortable with that location, then I was going to mount it like Magnus had it on the truck on the video. Not comfortable with there either my luck a rock would have taken it out.

Since the dealer installed the front license plate bracket I figured 1 more hole on my bumper would not hurt

I also drilled a hole on the bracket and the license plate, since I have one of those plastic covers on my license plate as well I figured the cam would be protected.

Only problem is I now need a cam that has the proximity markers, currently picture is great but I cant really tell how close I am to things unless I get really close.

Nice! yes I could not fit my inside the honeycomb grill, I hated the straight slotted grill, now...

I really only need the front cam for parking, I hate that I have already hit the bushes at work and I would be really bummed if one day I was to hit a concrete wall or concrete light housing.

I have been searching for cams that have a proximity marker like our rear cams, anyone know of any that are after market?

Well duh, the one I am using, made by Pyle (see my thread on the front camera installation - shameless plug). But I have seen someone here use a nicer one, with the same green / yellow / red markings as the rear one.

How exactly are you guys mounting it? In other words, what are you using to mount it? I don't have one yet so maybe it'd be obvious if I did, not sure lol

for those that may not have seen my post before ...... Here is a snapshot of my front view cam at the bottom of the screen you can see the plate holder on the bumper so you really have the advantage of knowing how close to an object you are and be able to see the ground ahead of you also yet the cam is up out of harms way

Re: new lockpick for the 8,4 uconnect, 99% software

I received my token and download link, but have not received the rollback software. I don't want to install anything I cannot reverse. I emailed order@customtronix.com yesterday and have not received a reply (They replied quickly when I needed to pay for my order)

Does anyone else have the link to the rollback software?

EDIT: Magnus was kind enough to respond about 2 hours ago, flashing now!
