Spank, the 3.5" screen... Is it big enough? How is the picture quality?
I'm looking to mount a camera in the front and in the back.
Sorry, forgot to follow up
I like the quality of the lcd.
I like the quality of the camera.
Having the ability to plug into the 12v and have it on all the time was over rated. Even if it was easier when I installed it. Didnt see a need to have it that way.
I also didnt like the camera view from that low so I moved it up to the middle of the spare tire. I drilled the 2 holes into the plastic cover on my spare and the camera is mounted just below the hub. I like its position much better.
I wasn't careful with the placement so I cant really use the the guidelines like I would like to, so I may end up fixing that later.
I also wired into the backup lights and it is fine, the slight delay is no big deal to me.
Since then I have also added a 430N so I will most likely wire it into the 430n. Till then I will use the little LCD.
I am not overly happy with the Daystar dash mount. I saw the Rugged Ridge shortly after I got the Daystar and I wish I would have seen it first. I like the idea of the camera piece on the front of the RR and would think about having the camera - maybe even for daily driving...
I did end up replacing the cell holder part of the daystar - it was so bad. The parts that hold the phone kept sliding out and it was annoying. I relaced it with:
Amazon.com: iBOLT xProDock Active Car Dock/Holder/Mount for Samsung Galaxy S3, S4 & Note 2. Works with ALL cases. USB cable for charging.: Cell Phones & Accessories
This one is big enough to hold my note 3 (even with a case) and has a charger built in. overkill for the lcd, but it will work with my phone when I start to use the 430n for video. This one also fits the Daystar ball with no adjustments.
Hope this info helps
