Not at all satisfied with the quality of the Axxera monitor when it comes to viewing my cameras. Too small, not high enough quality, far too great of an angle to safely turn my eyes away from the road, etc. I have found a nice, inexpensive 9" monitor that will allow four camera inputs; the fourth doesn't exist for me yet but it might be nice to have that flexibility to add one in the future. I hate reinventing the wheel, and I know someone on this forum has already added a system quite similar to what I'm trying to do. Sadly, I have searched and searched and can't find the thread!
Today, I tore open the dash cover right behind the steering wheel and found the video control box, which is pictured below.
I thought, this is gonna be easy! (I often say ridiculous things.) When I disconnected the camera input cables from the box, I found that they weren't an RCA style plug at all but a 5 pin connector.
No problem, I'll just buy three adapters. However, when I went to look for them, I found that there are several different 5-pin style plugs and most of them don't look like the ones that are on my Vegas!
Can someone here tell me specifically what kind of 5-pin plug this is (technical name appreciated) so I don't order the wrong one, AND if it is possible to get the adapter to be just the video out RCA? (Every adapter that I have seen splits it into video and red and white audio; no harm there but it makes it more costly than it needs to be.)
Also, if someone remembers who it was that had added the video monitor for his cameras before, I'd love to go read that thread again.
