If you have a 2009 or 2010 GT-R and willing to drive to Princeton Area of NJ and interested in accessories like front and rear cameras, please let me know. I also have other ideas that I don't want to talk about too much until closer to release.

For 2011 cars I have the perfect platform with my own 2011 GT-R, but always looking for others to be first to be first to get kits for other year models. Typically this isn't even testing, by the time I come to install the kit it has already been extensively tested and I'm more interested in creating detailed installation instructions etc (Karl and Charles Charlie can attest to that).

What's in it for you? Well you get to be one of the first to have the kits and have someone to install the kit for you, or help you install depending on how inclined you are to get invloved.

I use my own car for 2011 kits, but happy to help if you are interested in any of the kits for 2011 cars (Rear and front cameras, bypass kits or R-mode memory box)

Thank you Karl for taking the time yesterday to travel to me yesterday so we could install the toys below and for taking the detailed photos as we installed.

This information is also posted in another thread but given the title of that thread it is unlikely that 2009/10 owners would even look, so I am including in this thread.

Karl left yesterday after a very productive few hours. He now has the following on his US2010 GT-R:

The Backup Camera

The kit provides three video inputs:
  • An input for the backup camera (using Kenwood CMOS-200), which activates when engaging reverse
  • A front camera connected to one of the other inputs (leaving a third spare input)
  • The additional inputs would be switchable by a neat push to toggle switch that can be mounted without drilling any holes. There is also a remote supplied for switching if required.
Backup Camera Kit $450

Remote Bypass Kit

Giving Karl a four button remote:
  • Button 1 activate parking brake bypass which can be configured to be permanently bypassed if desired
  • Button 2 bypass of the speed sensor to allow navigation input while the car is moving
  • Button 3 activate reversing cameras without needing to engage reverse
  • Button 4 toggle the additional video sources, front camera in Karl's case (this does the same as the remote that comes with the backup camera kit but means you only need one remote)


Also because any of these buttons can be paired with the home link buttons on the rear view mirror, Karl can now:
  • Press the first button to see the front camera
  • Press the second button to see the rear camera
  • Press the third button to bypass the speed sensor.

Bypass kit $225

AV Cable

The 3 RCA connectors (Yellow,Red,White) to allow connection of iPod and any other composite based video source.

AV Cable $50

Front Camera


This is my car but camera placement is exactly the same

Front Camera $160

GT-R Memory Box




GT-R Memory Box $275

Brian is THE wiz. that's all I got to say. That's my GT-R in the vid and if for nothing else, the gizmos are worth it just for the pure marvel of engineering that the man produces. It is an art, really.

Not only he makes the kits that actually work as advertised, but having seen the attention to detail first hand - Pure British Quality...in it's ultimate sense (not the Range Rovers... or Jags circa 80's/90's). Every spliced cable in Brian's harness is soldered, double-shrink tubed and will outlast the gnarliest thrashing. Everything looks like it was made by a robot - neat, sturdy, perfectly fit and executed. The entire bundle is professionally executed and a hand-made quality at it's best. I only wish all my other electronics were made like that. I think nothing short of a direct missile hit will loosen any connector, junction, or the stop these fine toys from working. It's like getting a fine-tailored, custom made suit and watching it hand stitched in front of your very own eyes.

Speaking of the kit - it really IS splice free! No wire was cut, spliced or any hole drilled in the process; 2 rubber plugs were carefully cut to allow the cable to pass through, but even most pedantic eye will have a hard time finding it. And they're literally rubber plugs. If you didn't know any better, you'd think it came like that from the factory. And if you decide to get rid of it tomorrow - have at it, everything can be cleanly uninstalled, leaving no traces of it ever being there.

And a word about installation: if you're in the area TAKE ADVANTAGE OF HIS OFFER!!! First of all, Brian did spend a considerable amount of time doing the leg work, so you don't have to. He knows all the best ways to run required cable (which is supplied in abundant length for the front camera - spool is neatly tucked away but some LULz were had in the process about the length of it).

Brian perfected the art of taking the GT-R apart and I'm glad he's working on the side of bettering the car, instead of working in the chop shop, stripping it for parts as your car stand no chance. I even joked around that he can dis-assemble/re-assemble the GT-R...blindfolded, faster than the fastest Russian soldier stripping his AK-47.

Second, his attention to detail and neatness is worthy of trusting your car to. This ain't your "Geek Squad" installation - this is an exotic car pro who knows this car.

My only regret that Brian has no other toys left in his chest - I got it all, video camera front/rear, memory switch module, hand brake over ride, AND!!! I can finally hook up my android phone to my stereo system!!! yay, no more iPhone requirement. For a 2010 MY owner, this is a BIG DEAL, ok?


The switch memory setting module works flawlessly as well - you don't know how much you need it until you have it. Seriously, what's cooler than turning your car on and seeing "RED" "GREEN" "RED" lights to greet you, just as you left them? Pretty cool, huh?

What's even cooler? Video can be played on my LCD too!!! So, hook up your video source to RCAs and watch Top Gear (please, only while you're parked, for safety - it does work while you're moving but again... don't endanger yourself and others or risk being ticketed). And just in case your ride wasn't awesome before, impress your friends with showing them the crazy fast view up front/rear, as you drive! It's SICK!!!! :). And you can flip between video channels using your remote AND/OR mirror buttons for cameras/override handbrake lock on menus, if you so choose. RCA video input for your video source can be selected by "source" button on your stereo/steering wheel. i showed it to my wife - she was impressed. Her testimony: "I CAN NOW PARK YOUR CAR or play Pacman on your car LCD!"
(yes, I hooked up pacman to a GT-R yesterday, SERIOUS! GEEK!! NIRVANA!!!)


Brian, serious serious thank you. You took an awesome toy and turned that bad boy up to 11.

You rock, sir! You rock

The Bypass Kit effectively enables it as playing a DVD while moving is possible with the Parking Brake and Speed Sensor overrides in place. Of course I do not recommend playing a DVD while moving and depending on your location it may be illegal to do so.

Yes I know it is illegal. It's more for my kids when I take em with me.. They get bored so I wanted to see if you had that kit since your local. I would sign a waiver if you were worried.

They are available for sale now? Installation instructions included? How does the front camera turn on?

Put me down for a front and rear camera kit. How much total and where do I sent the money?

Thanks.

My original intention was to offer:
Backup Camera Kit @ $450 (including everything needed and using the Kenwood CMOS-200 camera)
Add $225 for bypass kit making total $675
Then add $160 for front camera making total $835

I can add an option to buy just the Backup Camera and Front Camera for $610 ($450+$160) but please note (as stated above) it will require one wire to be tapped where as with the bypass kit everything is plug and play.

Not sure if I'm allowed to post the link to my site but will PM you the URL.

If your kids are bored in a GT-R, you need to spend some time with them and racing games....


I keed...

.. Kids are so spoiled these days, they need all kinds of distractions, toys, gizmos, electronics, phones...

Wait. Oh. Yeah, I guess I see the irony of that statement, considering...
