    So what software is doing the recording / display?

    I like the sound of changing the pid as like you I don't want heaps of hubs.. Although nice to know that is also an option if required..

    For the cameras I am using Minicam.
    Great piece of small software in my opinion plus the addition of GPS and/or OBD II data makes it the natural choice for me.

    Not in the least! This is a fantastic thread which leads me to think of how I could incorporate some of your ideas.
    Thanks again for all the information you have supplied here.

    Very nice work so far on your cam system and your truck in general. You have accomplished a lot of the things I'm setting out to do.

    Thanks still working on it. Even as I am taking a break to review this site I am trying my hand at fabricating my overhead console to relocate my a/c controls which would allow me to fit a 12.1 inch touch screen into the dash after the a/c controls are out of the way.

    Have you had any trouble with your a/c controls not working once you extended the cable length that far? I know some d/c devices can be picky about long lossy runs.

    I'll also be relocating my a/c controls, but not sure if I want to put them overhead yet or somewhere else. I thought about putting them somewhere to the left of the steering wheel so battles over climate control with my girlfriend (or some other passenger) are forever settled. :P

    Success.
    After a bit of trial and error ( 2 tries actually) I finally built an overhead console I am happy with.

    Here is a generic pic of what I started with:



    First I had to take the factory A/C controller apart and do some cutting.
    This is not a necessary step if you don't want to cut your controls but it was going to affect the contour of my console so I made the cuts.


    Next I cut into the original piece to get the A/C control in then added some flexible bumper repair to make the piece.
    I put waxed aluminum foil to prevent the material from sticking to the A/C control faceplate


    After a lot of sanding:


    End result.


    Finished product re installed

    No problems with the actual controls at all.
    For me it all works as it should.
    I did use wires as close to the gauge of the original equipment wires as I could find.
