  17. Is it possible to install two 170º cameras at the back of my car and merge the two generated images into a single 270 with parking lanes? I have a Mitsubishi Outlander and the camera location is on either side of the rear handle. So, my current set up is a single camera which produces an angled 170º degree image. Therefore, the produced image is skewed. I'd like to purchase system with two cameras which produces a single better image. Is this even possible? Are there any such systems available for purchasing?

  18. 9:22 Or use a terminal block strip connector (A.K.A domino) to connect the wires, more safer and look more nice

    (and very cheap !!!)

  19. I have a manufacture build in back up camera. It only works when you are backing up. Dealer as usual in no help. They always give you useless can answer. How do I make the camera work when I need to. Camera only cames on when I go reverse.

  20. I saw that you routed the cable threw airbag panel at 13:14 , the cable now in front of the airbag
    Won't it prevent proper deployment of the air bag ? may be the better option is to remove the panel to rout it behind it ?
