Re: Rear view mirror / display / camera ? (mike_c70)

Just an FYI... IPD sells this (or a similar) camera/display unit if you want to give your money to a Volvo-friendly company. I know it's below $200, but I can't remember the exact price Check out their website...<p><A HREF="http://www.ipdusa.com " TARGET="_blank">http://www.ipdusa.com </A> <p>If you're not crazy about the factory stereo and would consider switching to an in-dash touchscreen NAV/stereo, you can have an integrated backup camera that automatically displays on the screen when you shift into reverse. Just an idea, although it is an expensive one. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>- Tryg

Only $5 less than etrailer.com, but I can vouch for the excellent service from Scott Hart and IPD in general. Hard to imagine how this would look in the R cabin, though (cringing). <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/eek.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>- Tryg

Cool! Didn't know IPD sold one. I just happened to browse through a motor trend magazine when I saw the ad and posted it here.

Maybe this one could be disguised as a regular volvo sun visor ?<p><A HREF="http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=5867704781&ssPageName=MERC_VIC_ReBay_Pr4_PcY_BIN_Stores_IT" TARGET="_blank">http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayI...es_IT</A>

I had a WiFi webcam working on the NAV screen.<p>Instead of a rearview I saw the back of the car ... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

The head unit I had installed has an integrated backup camera option...<p><A HREF="http://www.eclipse-web.com/5495index.html" TARGET="_blank">http://www.eclipse-web.com/5495index.html</A>

The Slickest way to do it is to buy the speaker and grill for the NAV equipped cars, and put an LCD there, hooked up to a camera mounted in the back, THAT would be nice. <br>One could also install a carputer at the same time like one person is trying in the audio/video forum right now.

Re: (ibanezplayer)

Where can I find a parts list for the speaker / grill (NAV)<br>Any ideas on how an LCD would be made to move up and down when needed ?

Re: (v70r.fan)

I have heard of / seen units that use a screen embedded in your rear view mirror, and which turn on when you go into reverse. <p>Such as <A HREF="http://www.rearviewsystems.com/remiwin4lcdc.html" TARGET="_blank">here</A>. <p>I think this is the slickest application myself.
