Backup camera not working other than in reverse gear
I have a Boyo Vision VTL120 backup camera (http://www.millionbuy.com/vsnvtl120.html). It's kind of useless on my car (Honda Prelude), but is a neat novelty.
It works when I am in reverse gear, but when I go to the Backup Camera screen in StreetDeck, I get a garbage image (just a mass of bright light). Is this because the camera is relying on the reverse lights to be active for it to be activated properly? I don't know exactly how it's hooked up, as the installer did it.
I was a bit disappointed that this didn't work, as the most novel use of the camera for me would probably be to see the ground-level view of the highway disappearing behind me (not that I would be just staring at it for more than half a second at a time while on the road). For backing up, it's not nearly as safe as turning my head to see with my eyes directly.
