    Nice installation, now you need only a backup camera to enjoy the plugin

    looks great Robby,

    Quick q for you though - how'd you get RR to automatically switch to the plugin when you engage reverse?

    Cheers

    Ok, so the camera gets wired into the reversing signal, and then when it activates it triggers road-runner???

    Yeah I'm interested in this part of things too.

    How does the reverse sensor controller know the cars in reverse ? Is it wired into the reverse light circuit ???

    By reverse sensor controller we mean the box with the transmitter that all the sensors plug into right ? It'll be in the rear of the car and will send it's info to the USB based receiver that Robby designed.. ??

    Just want to make it clear so I and others understand.

    Yes the reverse sensor main control is powered by the reverse light, so it is only active when you are in reverse.

    When it is on the USB interface by Robby detects this and then sends a command to RR to go to the PDC screen.
