towing bike with a stand and a ramp. heard a weird noise at certain speed. faster than pulling over, over a rumble strip on the highway, I could have peeked through the camera to see if it was the chains, stand, ramp, or the straps. seeing as how the rear window is useless.In all seriousness, can someone please explain to me why it would be a "nice feature"? This goes right up there with the front view camera. Are people really that lazy that they can't be bothered to look in their mirrors? And no, the Sportage's rear visibility isn't that bad.
I mean, if you are going for a "gee whiz" factor, then I can understand that. I just honestly can't comprehend any realistic application that this would fit.
well without being there, you don't know the sound it made, but it was enough that I did pull over to check it. turns out it was the stand shaking due to the wind, but only at certain speed. it made enough noise to alert me, so it was worth pulling over.Do you guys lack confidence in your hitching and securing abilities? Seriously, not being a wiseguy. Like I said, it is your car, do what you want, but you do realize how weird that sounds, right? How are you hooking things up that normal bumps in the road are scaring you to death?
I can't honestly recall a point where I ever though my boat or bikes were going to come unhitched. You have the ball hitch, plus the chains as a backup, I mean, if something were to go wrong, you will know it without needing to see it.
Anyway, good luck on the search, I wouldn't mind doing it just so I can get a better look at tailgaters.
Yes, it is called a rear view mirror.
you realize this makes you look like a jackass now? bust my balls until I give a fairly legit explanation to my scenario. this is why forums are annoying. judging before understanding anyone else's point of view.I wouldn't mind doing it just so I can get a better look at tailgaters.
I could care less how I come off. In my opinion it is a silly thing to "need", seeing as how people have been towing things for a very long time without cameras. You heard something disturbing, so you did the right thing and pulled over. Good work. Way easier than futzing around with your electronics and possibly causing an issue when you go in for warranty work.you realize this makes you look like a jackass now? bust my balls until I give a fairly legit explanation to my scenario. this is why forums are annoying. judging before understanding anyone else's point of view.
Yeah but does the camera merely getting power automatically make the head unit switch over to the camera input? Or wouldn't you have to figure out a way to manually switch inputs on the radio itself?We don't have the UVO system, but the logic is similar. The camera got power from the reverse light, so its power up every time we shift to reverse, so you can alter the power source of the camera to let said use the license plate light line, so when you switch on the park light, which light up the license plate together with the camera (remember to check the current rating), then switch to video mode on the UVO system/head display unit. You have to place some sort of switch so that your camera will not be always power when the license plate is light up at night time.
