    Default Parking Sensor camera.

    Hi Folks,
    This is my first post on these forums although i have been a member for a while now. My vectra is a 06 model with the built in color screen used for the vanigation and onboard computer.
    Due to the limited visibility through the rear window, i have been looking at parking sensors to fit around the rear bumper.
    While looking through the pages on ebay I found a listing for a parking camera. The camera is mounted on the rear bumper and takes its power from the reverse lights.
    So when reverse is selected, the Camera trasmits the video feed via a video out connector, similar to those found on dvd players.
    Is it possible to connect the video feed from the camera to the color screen?

    Many thanks

    I an going to give this a go when I get chance!

    I believe there may be a way to do this. Take a look at the links below. He has connected a DVD player up to the screen and now plays movies on the original Vauxhall screen. I think it is an Astra with cd70 & colour screen as fitted in the Vectra. If he can get a dvd on there I would have though a reverse camera would be possible.

    Here are the links:-

    This looks rather good.......... another needless toy that I really, really want.

    Not a DIY job for hamfisted Rillas, though.

    I am sure the must be an easy way of connecting the video feed into the screen.

    Perhaps we might be able to connect onto the sat nav feed from the head unit to the screen!!

    Any members got any ideas on how to go about this as the strip down of the screen seems to excessive.
