GED...is that a Garmin 3210? Could you post a picture of how you've installed it on your console (or have you already posted the finished picture...didn't see it)? Which camera are you using...the one in the picture? Is it one of those designed for fixed placement in a thru hull?

I'm rebuilding my console now, have a 3210 on order and would like to see how you've positioned it in relation to your other electronics and controls. Also I would appreciate hearing anything you might have learned about waterproof switches for AV - to give more flexibility in and out between cameras, DVD, recorders and other electronics that can display video. Any info would be very helpful. thanks.....

All my Aquapac stuff has started to leak after about a years use. Now I just use a drybag and make sure my hands are dry before using anything and that its not going to get splashed.
I thought prior to buying it that because the camcorder bag was so expensive it would have a good lens. The lens seems to be made out of the same stuff as the rest of the bag.
Hope this helps someone from wasting there money.
I wouldn't pay 80 for a bag but if you could pick one up cheap on ebay it may be worth it, but probably not if you are interested in the sound. If you loose quality of the recording through the plastic lens then theres not much point in taking the video i guess, just have to risk getting it splashed!

You are making me wish I had gone for the Raymarine E80 with it's AV inputs instead of the C80.

You could also rig up low light cameras for night running!!!

Yep same idea i had, I have a low light camera mounted on the a frame plumbed into my E120 so i have perfect night vision behind me without turning around and getting blinded by the all round white on the a frame.

for anyone that is interested here is the camera I used http://www.cctvstuff.co.uk/small_van...tv_cameras.htm

and if anyone try's it dont forget to get a camera that can reverse the image or forget trying to use it as a rearview mirror, just think left...right...mirror image of a normal rear view mirror and then what the camera image will display
