    This is your car? I have a subscription to Performance Auto And Sound, I'll watch out for it.
    Why didn't you use the dual core version of this board and why did you connect the rear camera with a USB adapter? It seems easier to plug the camera into the AUX port on the screen and just have it auto switch when you put the car in reverse.

    ^ I didn't find the dual version necessary for my application and budget.

    If my monitor had auto switch that would have been ideal, however it doesn't and this was the other option. Plus it works great on CF it has video record and snap shot options.
    I plan on getting a rear view mirror with back-up cam input and just use the USB adapter for a front camera for parking near curbs.


    btw, this is my car.

    Thanks.

    The motherboard shown in that case is not a D945GCLF. Is that YOUR case? Or just an example of what yours is like...

    If I were a guessing man, the one pictured looks like a Jetway mobo.

    EDIT: Nevermind, it's an EPIA MII 10000. Probably an old pic.
