Hi All

Just called "Safety Dave" and he basically told me that he would not touch a Jeep, and believes that it would be an "expensive" exercise anyway.

He advised that I go back to the Dealer to "negotiate" a better deal.

Re: Rear safety camera

That's nuts. Several people on here have replaced the camera themselves. It seems it's not that difficult, especially if you have a basic idea of what you're doing. So for a professional fitter to pass is just dumb.

Once I have more info from my supplier I will post more details of what you should buy.

It is hardly worth complaining to the dealer, they just fit the damn thing. From what I've heard which is nothing new, dealers order from China the cheapest chipset sensors for their camera's for profit reasons.

Below is the email extract from a China vendor who I deal with and are reliable.
_____________________________________________
Hi,

The following is the price of different chipset:

The price of PC-1030 is $10. PC-3030 is $12. MT9V136 is $15 and PC-1089 is $16. - excluding shipment.

The different of them is the resolution rate. The PC-1089 is highest resolution. But All of them have good quality.

He put me onto a DynaMike.

Gave him a call, but he is a "mobile come to you" guy.

Anyone heard of him ?

Not heard of him, but if Safety Dave recommended him, I would say he knows his stuff.
