I noticed you're still working with polymers.

Ah I guess I should have searched " silly camera"

Common people better titles!

Or, you can add a switch and diode to do the hack electrically:

In my Prius I have a SPDT center-off switch that does both the NAV hack and the backup camera hack on the same switch. It works 100% the same way on a LEAF.

Years ago I had that option on my Eclipse. When you are moving it is just a gimmick to make you seasick looking at it.

On the other hand turning on the front camera in my SL when going very slow is great. If you think clearances are marginal it shows turning lines.
2012 Cayenne Red SL traded for:
2013 Pearl White SL Premium
Traded for a Cirrus White 2014 Mercedes B (totaled)
2016 Urano Gray eGolf SEL w/ drive assist
Loved the VW but it sat too low for my old body
Back to a Cirrus White 2017 B250E

I did this backup camera hack on my LEAF today. It is such a useless but funny mod :mrgreen:

You are right you only need to override the reverse signal wire---I used the service manual from NicoClub http://nicoclub.com/manuals/Leaf/2014%20Leaf/av.pdf to find it. Even though the manual is for 2014, the pinout and wire color on my 2017 non-Bose navigation matched exactly (45, green).
