    Plan next now is adding a 360 camera. Its harder than i thought to make it work... cause the intelligent-parking assistant got first priority on the screen and stuff... Its hard to bypass it without removing the parking assitant, which is not an option, gotta get a relay or a splitter box for gvif so i can have both on a relay.
    Here is an illustration pic of how it will look like i made in photoshop. It will be 3D ish like the new ones in BMW`s and Audi`s. 200 dollars on ebay lol.

    Yup, thats the plan, i just need to buy a splitter NAVLINKZ front + rear-view camera input vehicles with GVIF | INFINITI | Multimedia Interfaces - OEM Integration | Multimedia


    [​IMG]
    Its just that the dude (the support dude is called "michael Schumacher" lol) speaks to damn bad english.. He cant even understand my questions about the item... Car-solutions sells a splitter just like it (Car GVIF Interface for Lexus, Toyota, Nissan, Land Rover, Range Rover, Infiniti), but they say it only works for the toyota HU`s with the NAV box outside of the unit and connected via the gvif, my HU got a built in NAV, then the parking assistant is going thru the gvif, i just dont understand why it wouldnt work... And the other guy from the alpine site cant even answer if it works for the prius or not, it doesnt say it requires a HU with the a external NAV, but who knows if it will work or not when he cant answer the questions.. SO yea... But i have to keep the OEM HU because its the only panel that supports the Intelligent parking assistant, if it existed another aftermarket HU with gvif input so i can keep the parking assiastant i would be over that like a hawk lol. But it just doesnt exist from what ive seen.

    Very interesting! I was looking at those 'bird's eye' systems from ebay myself. Which one do you plan on buying?

    This one, cause it comes with the "3D view" aswell as birdseye.
    Newest HD 3D 360 Surround View Driving System Bird View Panorama 4CH Cam Car DVR | eBay

    They do sell this also tho, which is a simpler version with pretty much just birdseye,
    Universal 360 Degree Bird View Panorama System Car DVR Recording rear view camer 707242632470 | eBay

    wouldve been great to find a birdseye view that goes horizontoly around the whole monitor instead of vertically tho, as the newer Audi A4 has.

    It’s the little things... actually, just trying to hold off on dumping funds into mod batch 2.0 until sometime in 2019. I’m trying hard. AA42574A-65F3-43F7-BB63-2C965F63029F.jpeg 40120FC9-E5FB-4AC3-95AC-E47EF005C4C2.jpeg

    Nicely done on the Wheaties cereal reference haha.

    I’m more ashamed of the dirt and grime on the right hand side of photo than the cracked. Thanks for the replacement offer, will be a while til I’ll be able to take up on it.

    You always should pull where the tabs are. And if the last person who took it off didn't silicone it before
    putting it back on, the rubber gets hard putting more stress on the weaker part of the cover when removing.
    I've watched several covers being broken by mechanics after I told them to be careful because it's old...
