Dash cam with reversing for Berlingo 2019 van
#1
Hi All

After an unfortunate incident (Deliveroo rider tight on my tail and not visible!) I've decided I need a dash cam with a reversing screen.

Also thinking about how a screen could attach as no mirror or if could connect to head unit screen?

Has anyone got any reasonably priced suggestions.
I'll probably get it fitted properly too so Cardiff area,

Thanks

I fitted a mirror just so I could mount the mirror monitor onto it, luckily the fixing was present on the windscreen of my van. Don't think you can easily put a cam onto the existing Citroen head unit without coding and maybe then, has to be a model that supports a cam. But, plenty of cam and monitor kits online.

That would appear to be the simplest solution.
I've ordered an Auto vox V5 Pro kit which would appear to come with a bracket so I'll see when it arrives.

Don't want a situation happening again like that.

Auto vox is good. Power the rear cam from the rear 12v socket and use a relay triggered by the reversing lamp or have it on all the time by only powering it from the rear 12v socket as I've done. Do NOT connect anything into the rear light units cabling that draws more than 10ma or you risk damaging the BSI computer, and if you do that, it will break your heart, trust me.

A big thank you again.

Got the Auto-Vox V5 Pro camera system all wired up and working!

Bracket that came with system for mirror/screen is firmly fixed to windscreen. Acts nicely to fill the gap between the sun visors with the low Autumn sun!

No rear socket in my van but came with cable to run through.
Powered using "splitter" fuse off passenger side fuse box, using 12v socket fuse so shouldn't affect anything else, I hope.
I had to buy splitter for van (Halfords) as the one with the dash cam only had the micro fuse type that the legs are too short.

I did connect to rear lights, but is only a trigger for reversing so low current. No ill effects so far.

Only bit I am struggling with is for an always on 12v source in cab area.
Currently using the same 12v socket connection which is switched off with ignition.
The only side effects of this are that the clock has to synchronize with the GPS each time I switch on and the parking monitor is non-functioning. No major problem.

Screen seems nice and clear with good video. Rear view is excellent with guide lines too when reversing.
Shows speed and direction when driving but can be switched to front or back view if needed.
Also get a bing bong sound when I switch on now!

There's next to no permanent 12v supplies in a Citroen cab. Possibly the white on the stereo plug but that likely goes off when eco mode kicks in.

Not a worry as is working OK for me but I'll have a look at a later date.
Might even route something from under the bonnet!

Yeah I powered my mirror monitor from the center light (wired it across the RHS map light bulb terminals) and the rear cam is on the 12V aux socket in the back, but I bought an aux fusebox to install, just not gotten round to it.

That 12V main live to the stereo for memory, does not switch off when the ECO mode is triggered, and probably holds 5-10 amps at the fuse, so could be very handy. I was not thinking straight, if it went off, the stereo would reset each day. That must be one of the few permanent 12v feeds in the cabin.

The battery connection unit will have spare outputs, on the plate that fits over the top of the pos terminal end. But beware to put a low enough fuse that the wire cannot become an orange heater element if it shorts out on the metalwork. Seen it happen before, scary.

Zion. I note your worrying comment about 10 ma maximum but must point out that if you connect a relay the energising coil will be typically 150 to 200 ma (according to the references I found  https://www.12voltplanet.co.uk/relay-guide.html  and   https://www.bcae1.com/relays.htm). The items I have bought (not yet fitted) quote 100 ma for the camera and about 250 ma for the monitor. Apparently another reason for using a relay on some cars is that the 12 volt supply to the reversing light is in a waveform and this can cause interference on the monitor. I'm not sure that this applies to the k9 as several people appear to have successfully fitted a reversing camera on the k9 without a relay.
