    I like it so far. The narrow field of view on the original system doesn't work for me.

    Also some cold weather issues that are likely related to the (original) camera. (Didn't work if less than 50 degrees outside temp...) Will let you know about the new camera. Installed it today but may not get cold again here in Texas for a while (90 degrees today).

    Monitor (mirror) is a close fit for the FiST, but it works.

    Love the hybrid (mixed) system so far.

    How was that camera, I’m just real leery about buying that real cheap stuff off of eBay not saying it’s cheaply made but as cheap as it is monetarily I worry about it. So how how was yours?

    Anyone recently installed a backup camera on a 14' FiST? I'm looking into it but not wanting to spend an arm and a leg. Any specific camera recommendations would be helpful. Thanks!

    All this mod is doing is telling the car to look for a video signal when in reverse.

    The backup sensors on that unit will signal the included little speaker, so should work as intended.

I didn't want to do this in accessory mode and have the car for whatever reason, shut off in the middle of writing to the system if they opened the door or the car automatically shuts off. Once you change the number and click write in FORscan your sync will reset. After it is booted up put it in reverse. It will take a second as it searches for your camera. If no camera is detected will will come up with that screen. if after a few seconds nothing comes up go back into FORscan. Both carguy and I, when it didn't work the first time, put it back to the default values and reset the system before trying another value. I would recommend doing FORscan first. It would make it easier to trouble shoot if, for whatever reason the camera doesn't work.
    Hello all, I have a quick question, I’ve installed a 17 f250 third brake light w/ the camera on my 15 f350 dually. Can I tap into my reverse camera to make that work. If so, I plan on installing a relay to turn it on when I need to see the bed of my truck. I would greatly appreciate some good feedback or maybe some brainstorming. Thanks all

    Do you have the link to this thing? I have a hard time seeing out the back because my dirt road keeps the windows filthy. I'd love to have the sensors.
