Wheeling cameras?
 
Searched, but couldn't find out what I was looking for. I wanted to see suggestions or setups for front mounted cameras showing both front wheel approaches for offroading without a spotter. I was thinking of installing the lockpick and wanted a backup camera and then two front cameras. Any suggestions or tips?

not to offend or really answer your op.

but having cameras for off roading isnt practical. unless you find a really cheap setup that works well.

in all honesty, when i'm being spotted 95% of the time, it just makes me worse and i end up hitting more crap because i don't look at whats ahead.

having cameras for wheeling i think is like those inclinometers that tell you when your flipping....

i don't need a degree finder to tell me when i'm close, i know when to back off.

Don't burst my bubble and then pacify me with sweet pics....:rofl:

I was thinking that it would be nice to see exactly what was right in front of the tires.

The GoPro Hero has a nice feature where it transmits the feed to an app on your smartphone or tablet via Wifi. The only downside is, there's about a 1 to 2 second lag in the feed.

They are a bit costly but are awesome action cams that are built to take a beating.

I bought a GoPro for this reason exactly. It works great. You are limited on what your looking at but the new GoPro that just came out is crazy good. The case is water proof so no worries about water.

Here is a video I posted. It's only In 720p so not as good quality as it can put out but you get the idea

I use GOPro HD cams for my excursions, but not for real time. Love the quality, and rugged design.

Take a look at the RV systems... there are many multi-camera models that will show 4+ feeds on one screen...

I have seen a few difrent setups that people are runing and the guys that had them tend to get themselfs in a bind because they are paying to much attention to the screen and not the trail.

I know there are a few places that sell tough cameras for a descent price and hooking them up to a monitor would be easy enough. I bet you could do whay you are wanting to do for around $250 or so using a different monitor. Dont have a clue if you could do make it go through the headunit or not.



I like having to remember the trail 15 foot at a time myself, it adds to the challenge.
