    Replacing rear view mirror with screen/cam

    Has anyone tried the following....

    1) Doing a headliner install of a 7" screen
    2) Removing the rear view mirror
    3) Using a cam as the background in FrodoPlayer to replaces the rear view mirror


    Any and all input would be nice. Don't give me the crap either! I did and didn't find anything clear and the search function on this site isn't all that good, you end up with a lot of garbage and who has 3 days to read it all. LOL

    There's a flip-down 7" monitor available in the store here.

    I wouldn't recommend it, but it can be done.

    3) Using a cam as the background in FrodoPlayer to replaces the rear view mirror
    I don't know about making the cam display the background. It might be possible, but I don't know.

    Tough ****. The reason it takes days to slog through anything is a result of two things:
    1) The searcher not narrowing their search down enough to get the information they want.
    2) n00bs NOT searching for answers and posting questions which show up in everyone's search results.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    2) Removing the rear view mirror
    You know that that is a traffic violation, right?

    actually, in many states having a rear view mirror is not a traffic violation. hence why many uhaul trucks do not have them.

    Ahhhh, I'm not to worried about getting in trouble. Think about trucks, they don't have a rear view mirror, only the side mirrors. You're fine as long as you have your side mirrors. Plus, I won't get much static from it anyway, a quick flash of my badge and it's "have a nice day" and I'm off again.
