    Is it possible to add a rear view camera to a Android tablet?

    Hi Guys, I am new to the forum and I am impressed by the information I am able to find on this site~

    I spent a whole day trying to find a solution hook up a rear view camera to a Android tablet, but it seems like there isn't anything available on the market...

    Can anyone please give me an idea of how to make this work?

    none of the USB variants would work, but you might manage to make a bluetooth camera work with an app. Something such as this Senior Tech Blogger (Want a product reviewed? Contact me.)

    USB could work , it depends on your tablet
    In the future , I'm planning to try using EASYCAP so that any car-camera with rca will work

    BT might be too slow IMO
    WIFI would be better ( IP-CAM ) , and the software part is already there as far as I know

    What about a foscam wifi ip camera? there are plenty of android apps for viewing those, and they are cheap.

    Thank you all for your input!

    However it seems like using the ip cam will make it harder to apply "automatic on" when shift to reveres...

    Although I would love to use Android tablet in my car, but I guess I have to stick with Window tablet as there is more support on Video Input.

    the foscam and avtech has an alarm relay input that you could wire to your reverse light to trigger push video.
