Hi, is it possible to have a front camera (in addition to a genuine parts rear camera kit) that displays on the head unit ?

I have a Gen 3 with front and rear cameras in to one input, the reverse camera input. It uses a relay to switch the feeds over and a couple of diodes to activate the input into the head unit/display.

I also added a timer IC (NE555) so if I go into reverse, I get the reverse camera and then when I come out of reverse it gives me 6 seconds of forward camera.

Plus I have a switch on the dashboard that lets me switch on the forward camera.

I would be happy to send you the circuit if you want to try it out?

Very interested also. Would you be willing to share it again?

Sorry guys, I must speak on the side of caution!

In the Gen 4, the Bosch Infotainment System Head-Unit mates perfectly with the Genuine UK/EU/JA Suzuki Reversing Camera Kit and gets its firmware regularly updated by the Dealers.

Martin, your turn!

I would not upset the system be introducing any 12v accessories into an existing self contained lo-voltage camera system!
