No why would you do that, the stuff already there in my car are also just wires.
Is the new CPL 'backward compatible' fitment wise with older cameras (X2, DC, etc.) so that going forward there will only be a single version? Just curious but I've been known to move cameras around and generally just keep various components in a 'parts box' for convenience.Yeah new CPL won’t have any vignetting like that
yeah we do that, I don't wrap entire cables but do use tesa tape in places where cables might rattle or where there are cables running with other cables, looped cables etcDoes anyone wrap cables in felt tape (e.g. tesa Adhesive Cloth Fabric Tape), before routing them under the panels?
As it happens, the only part that went under the headliner is the part from the mirror to the top of the A-pillar. I removed the pillar cover and was able to easily secure the cable above the side curtain airbag so it can't interfere if the airbag ever goes off. Tucking the wire into the headliner across the top of the windshield was a piece of cake.Any issues with tucking cables under the headliner?
The housing feels light and cheap, not saying it is, but that's the feeling, wondering about plastic quality under the sun, despite being behind UV safety glass.It's wider, but half as tall, the top entry of the USB cable on the old model also requires it to be mounted lower in most cases
typical install the old rear cam would be about 4~5cm lower down on the window, you might be able to come up with some scenario where the old design can be more discrete on some particular vehicle, there will always be one design that works better for one application than another, that's why we have more than one designFor instance, let's take Tony's car from the pic. Where and how would he mount the DC rear cam?
Not if you stick the mount to the plastic trim or use the right angled connector for the rear cam.typical install the old rear cam would be about 4~5cm lower down on the window, you might be able to come up with some scenario where the old design can be more discrete on some particular vehicle, there will always be one design that works better for one application than another, that's why we have more than one design
if it was shorter it would limit how much rotation we could have as the mount would end up in the field of view, we trimmed every last millimeter out of it that we could while still being able to rotate it and support a CPLWhat's driving the length of the housing, the PCB? It seems it could be shorter but need to understand what the limitations are inside.
