Most auto parts stores will test your battery for free (in the US at least).
Thanks for the reply. I did some troubleshooting myself.

Its the CANBOX thats making this. It wont allow the dashboard to turnoff and there for its draining battery when i leave the car. When unplugging the Canbox it shutsdown but the Unit wont work without the box.

So i took the red cable, Orange(light), Green(Camera mode) and connected it to 12V, and now it works. Aint working turning up volume from steerwheel. But can live with that.

Now to my next question. Does it work to plug another camera without any hassle? Was thinking of installing frontcamera. Does it have 2 ports built in already or do i need to make something extra here?

Thanks.

I feel like all it would take is carefully tapping into the regular wire because the only other video ports are for backseat videos..

you could just plug the front cam into the aux in. Then you could select it as needed to avoid curbs etc....


As for the issue you had with the canbus box....your dealer should be able to supply a replacement part for you?

Thank you.

1) Your sure i could just put it in the AUX? Video support?


2)I did call em but was not given that much help tbh. So i did put all of the cables back in to original place. What i did next was to remove the yellow cable and put it to a diffrent 12V. A cable that i knew was 0V when turning car off.

So i solved this issue by removing that cable, nothing more. All works perfect now.

Well it may switch over when you got the aux option. I hard wired my back up cam to a switch so I can choose the camera opt and drive with it on. Just for fun

I tried this today with a positive result. It works really nice. Auto cam when going in to revers and switching to AUX mode with the steering wheel button.

I just have 1 question regarding the revers picture. Is this something you could change somehow? I really don't care as it won't matter when being close to a wall/car doing your parking.

So you do have a camera in the front of the car?

Yes, he put a front and rear camera in his car. Front cam on the aux in. But he used a camera intended to be on the back so the image is reversed....get a conventional mini cam and the image will be correct.

There is a built in mic on the unit. Apparently that runs while I have my external mic turned on. Any way I can turn on the built in mic without having to put a peice of tape on it looking trashy?

Is your dynavin an older model? Those had 2 active mics and it didn't work well. The newer (like the d99s) versions disable the internal mic if you use an external one.

you certainly should give that a try if you have an older unit. Bluetooth can be tricky, there are a lot of variables that go into the results you might get with bluetooth so playing around with the mic location/direction is a good idea as well.

On the newer units (D99 and later) they changed to a parrot blutooth module and changed the way the external mic works and the results were a definite improvement, and a lot less experimenting.....but in your case, play around with it and use whatever works best.

Im curious.. The other day when putting everything back in the headunit i did notice that my wireless transmitter ( http://dx.com/p/car-wireless-2-4g-wi...a-black-206556 )
was very warm.

Anyone knows if this is normal or do i have a defect transmitter? If normal. Could this do any harm to my cables that's laying next to it?

I know what you mean. And i thought of this myself.
But couldent the plastic be like "tended" (Duno if thats the word) Like the plastic used in diffrent items. Like laptops. That's more resistant against heat. And there for it could be so warm that if a cable is lying next to it, it will burn?

How much heat could the cabels behind the unit take?

probably more heat that you could take by touch.....so you would not use terms like "very warm" to describe it....more like HOT!!!!
