I've just had a play with my prototype for a reverse camera kit for those with a 2009 370Z which has the factory (not Connect Premium) Nav.
Good news! It works!
The control box works just like the NavTool unit i.e. it gives you a reverse camera input which automatically switches when you put the car into reverse, as well as second composite video input that is manually switchable should you want to wire in a screen cam, forward facing camera, DVD, etc.
My solution has some advantages over the NavTool:
- It's cheaper!
- It doesn't require you to modify the NavTool loom to make it work on UK cars - I will have already done that for you
- There is no need to pull the dash apart or run a wire down the centre tunnel because it all wires into the Nav in the boot
Just like my other kit it's 100% plug and play and fully reversible so you can return your car to standard.
I don't have a price yet as I need to work out the figures. Unfortunately, it will be more expensive than the Connect Premium solution because I need to buy in the control box and there is a bit more wiring to do. However, it will be cheaper than importing the NavTool, camera, etc. and without all the hassle associated.
I will get the first production kit made up early in the New Year so if anyone wants one then send me a PM.
If you have any questions then please ask away
OK folks, I have put up an official For Sale thread here.
