New replacement Rear camera- 450 and 380?
─░mage
Hi,
I have replaced the rear camera on the 450 using the same cable and Panasonic monitor.
The original camera was a MITO ecx 100. A double camera with B/W and colour. It is no longer made.

I spoke with a very helpful rep at Mito corp who suggested using an adapter that they have available with the Mito CM 32
http://mito-oem.com/product.php?id=CM32AH

The adapter requires 4 soldered connections that can be done on a bench. Then a simple plug in.
I mounted the camera behind the glass but the IR caused double reflection so I had to mount it outside, drilling a 5/8 hole in the FG under the old glass. Drill the hole off centre to give the wire some room to allow tipping. The unit comes with a grommet. It was made for metal but it works with touch of adhesive -- unlikely that it would come out anyway.

Cost about $140

Ross do you have the side mount cameras? I have a nice blind spot I would like to eliminate.

Ernie,
The 450 came with side cameras and a front camera.(good for driving with the front blinds down Smile ) There is a dash switch to change cameras. There is also the capability to view through all the cameras while in bed (on the TV) The switch to change cameras is above the headboard.
The side cameras activate with the turn signals.
There appear to be kits available, but wiring may be a PIA.
Mito has a couple with 3, 4 camera inputs and "Trigger" wiring. Best one appears to be this--4 views at once would be neat for security/curiousity.

He probably does. I have them and also had aftermarkets ones installed on Pretty Penny. They have saved me embarrassment more than once. I wish I could take them to social events so they can save me there, too. Blush

Ross- do they sell to dealers or public. I see nothing on their website that states that. Thanks

Thanks Guys.

I ordered the system today with the backup and side cameras. My old OEM black and white camera finally expired. I will have to pull the new cable all the way to the front.

Dealt with Tim Suetkamp at extension 250.
