  • Turn on front camera

    Is there a way to turn on a front mounted camera when my monitor switches from PC mode to one of the AV modes that the camera is connected to?
    I don't want to have it powered on all the time.

    a better question might be why you have a camera mounted to the front of the car..

    you should be able to connect the camera to a switched acc line-- that way, it will only be on when the car is on.

      The front camera is there because I find it near impossible to judge how close I get when parking etc.

            Usually mounted cameras do not consume much power so it's easier to just leave them on when the car is on (i.e. powered by the PC power supply).
