Re: WK2 DownUnder

I am also interested in attaching a rear camera to the back of our caravan tp see what is going on behind, yes i do use extended mirrors but this would help when driving in built up areas.
I have spoken with a couple of Auto Elec and are not too keen on helping, i guess it's out of thier comfort zone

Cheers

I am looking at one of these PAC is a reputable company and very helpful.
They have helped me in the past.

The NU-CHY2 is a Navigation Unlock integration interface that allows the factory Navigation & Reverse Camera Features of your Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep radio to be used by the passenger at anytime.

I gave trying to program the GPS whilst driving in traffic yesterday and it allowed me to input a new address. Not sure if the dealer hasn't locked it out when they installed it. I meant to try a DVD last night but didn't get around to it.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Re: WK2 DownUnder

I've ordered my first ever Grand Cherokee Diesel, bright silver, QL, Off road adventure II and many extras, due to arrive Feb 2012, fingers crossed. Took my first test drive and i truly loved it. At this moment i have a JK Wrangler Diesel 2009 which i'm keeping but it's at home on the Gold Coast, At this moment i'm based in the Northern Territory for 3 years and wanted the GC for touring up here, but after reading all the forums and the troubles some guys are having with the GC, i hope i'm making a good choice.

I wanted to have another 2 cameras one at the back of the trailer.
And one inside so I can look to see if anything is moving around.
Thought about using wireless cameras with the receiver on a switch in the car.
I tried being a guinea pig with the CHR550 coastletech will not take it back or plan an update to support ours, suppose it is hard for them to get hold of a foreign JGC to test in.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

You are best just using the 2.4Ghz Wifi cameras from ebay.
Hook them up to a cheap notebook to view the video or a 2.4ghz monitor.
Much cheaper, more reliable and you can move their locations.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

You might also consider a Car Computer. You could setup Engine Diagnostics, Additional cameras, Internet, Email, plus much more. If you waited another 12 months, after Microsoft release Windows8, a tablet would be the way to go.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Most smartphones will be able to see the output from a wifi camera, as would a tablet.
The Optus ones from Dick smith are good value.

Spentan, unfortunately not. I'm convinced its on the ANIARA departing the 28th. Although this means my car has been sitting out in the open without any TLC for almost a month..

Those who have received theirs cars did you pay outstanding $ after you inspected the vehicle? Would be interested where 'we' stand if the vehicle isn't up to scratch. Will have to get that contract out.

Btw this question isnt related to the car being out in the open, just interested in offer and acceptance rights.
