Is it possible to display all 3 cameras (back + 2 sides) at the same time

It would be much safer to be able to display all 3 cameras (both side mirror and
the back cameras) on the Axxera monitor screen, especially in heavy multi-lane traffic. Has anyone done this? I have a 2019 Aria 3901. Thanks, Marty Potts

Take a search on the Forum - I seem to recall someone addressed various camera display options a few months ago. Available settings are ultimately going to be dependent on your Axxera model, though.

Most of the radio displays only have a single camera input, which one gets displayed is determined by an external switching box.

Several people have purchased a monitor from rearviewsafety.com that can have up to 4 separate camera inputs and mounted it on their dash so they can view all 3 cameras at the same time.

I did exactly that in a 41 foot DP that I previously had. I also had a fifteen inch screen for the display. It took some hardware changes and new software to make that happen, but I was always glad it worked that way. I think a smaller screen would make much less useful.

E-bay has many 9" quad monitors. The three camera leads that go into the switch box under the dash just need to be moved to the monitor. Be aware that the viewing the side mirror camera displays, while driving 60 mph, is disconcerting.

I will always believe that at highway speeds driving with my vision directed outside of the coach is safer than monitoring a camera feed inside of the coach.

Thanks for the many comments. So I just realized on our Thor Aria 3901, that the camera monitor is a Voyager AOM713 7" SINGLE view screen. I can select any of the 3 cameras to show. If I select camera 3, that is the right side camera, most important to me when driving with lanes on the right side of the MH. The Axxera AVM72NAV radio 6" screen has a camera setting available. At present there is no signal input to that. I'd like to be able to view camera 1 (the rear camera) on that Axxera screen. Any suggestions?

The modern luxury diesels cone with a similar system. Several of the older Entregra's have installed a birds eye view camera system (You can do a search on IRV2 for the threads). The cameras are mounted on the roof's corners and wired to a central computer and view screen. The system comes with the alignment, grid paper to align each camera. Takes a couple hours in a large parking lot to get everything aligned. It only shows a bird's eye view when you are parked or rolling at less than 5 mph as the computer is not very fast in stitching together the scenes.
