    Camera for SD

    I'm looking into adding camera around my car. i only see this camera available on mp3car store atm
    http://store.mp3car.com/CCD_Infrared..._p/com-003.htm

    How would I implement that camera to SD? is it USB or does it use a RCA connection?

    Or are there better cameras for SD?

    Almost positive that camera uses a RCA connection, since it makes no mention of USB specs in the description. If that's the case, I believe that it would connect directly to your screen (possibly through a reverse camera input, if your screen is so equipped).

    Google it and see if you find any other place that MP3Car.com. IMO they dont deserve more money from us.
    You know what I mean.

    I have the newer Xenarc 7" touchscreen, i think its 700tsv?. It does have 2 rca video inputs. This is my first time doing reverse camera.

    Is it possible to do reverse camera with the Xenarc? How could it switch displays when in reverse?


    EDIT
    Nvm I found this thread: http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/lcd-...e-monitor.html

    But I guess that would mean that the display would not be in SD? Just toggle the video inputs automatically.

    Then my question would be how would I use that camera to signal that its on and off? Is it like somehow when I put the transmission in reverse, it'll power on the camera?

    i think this is turning into a monitor/hardware thread now..

    +1, for their customer support they showed us over the past 6 months, I will pay more elsewhere if I have to now.
