I'm working on installing 2 dashcams, but might opt for a larger DVR solution if it's easy to grab a copy of the around view camera video.
All the cameras are connected to a separate module that combines and "stitches" the four images together. That combines signal is then sent to the A/V control unit up front.
Thanks, somehow I missed this response. In hindsight, I guess I would have to worry about powering these cameras as well, so I'll have to give it some more thought, but being able to record all 4 cams with 1 video input would be really useful for sure.
My first (and so far only) Hack is to add a small microcontroller circuit to "fake" the OK button press as soon as the unit powers up:
Obviously this was accomplished without altering any code, but a more elegant way would be to patch the code to eliminate this (any several other) annoyances.
I would like to ask you 3 questions Phil:
1. Did you test this hack with a phone, which is connecting via the Bluetooth, because while the Bluetooth info-message is displayed, the user cannot press the "OK" button:
2. How much soldering is required to install your "hacking" microntroller? I mean, do the user have to solder simultaneously more than 2 pins?
3. What will be the estimated price of your hack? I would like to buy one, if the stupid lawyer from Nissan cannot be persuaded to drop this retarded confirmation screen in the following 6 to 12 months. (I love the LEAF, but this nag screen is like a "Spoonful of poop in the barrel of honey".)

Could you please share some more info?
Like, what protocol are you using? 5V or 3.3V ? Are there wires for power available, or do we need to get that from somewhere else?
Maybe you'd be willing to share some source?
Any piece of info would be nice!
