Front camera install

Post by sliderr » Mon Feb 25, 2019 12:20 am

Hi, i am planning to install a front view camera on my MY 2014 xc90 and connect it to my aftermarket (android) head unit, i am looking for a way how to wire the camera, has anyone done this? especially i am looking for the best position to penetrate the firewall towards the headunit.

Any suggestions are welcome!

Really don't have an answer about the wiring.. but you can 'maybe' rather use some kind of a 'band' type parking sensor under the front bumper, however it would be activated by a switch when needed. It should work - and help - very well
