    Question micra "lanewatch" how possible is it ?

    Also owning a 2015 honda fit with "lanewatch" i have easily become addicted to not turning my head to the right to change lanes, there is a camera below the RH sideview mirror.

    SO soliciting opinions on how easy it will be to run a wire from a manual (micra s) RH sideview mirror into the interior ?

    metro ?...anyone?

    I can't view ebay at work, but I assume its to an auction for a video camera (and hopefully a screen). This isn't that hard to do, and I've seen a few different people do it before.

    Here is one such example:

    Running a wire should be easy. Is there not already a flexible conduit going from the body to the door? Is there anything electrical in the door of the S? (Light?) I honestly forget.

    So i bought this about 12 CAD, its a DIRECT snap in fit for the original reverse light, and it look EXACTLY the same except it doesn't say NISSAN (no markings actually)


    Details about CMOS Rear View Reverse Camera fit for 08-14 March High Quality

    bit of bother fishing wire to follow OEM reverse light wiring, loosen passenger rear interior carpet panel, but its possible to fish it from bumper to boot, cut slit on boot for video wire, then just tuck wires around trim panels, around/under rear seat , then under sill panels and have video at glovebox, pretty easy, no wires showing, maybe 2 hr job.

    more to come!
