  1. 981 DIY Discussion
    Hi all, I'd like to add a backup camera and sensors to my 2013 981 S. I'm reading/finding that my PCM 3.1 can't be upgraded to software version 4.xx or greater, for the aftermarket solutions I'm finding. I have PCM system version 3.41 (that I believe can only be upgraded to something like...

    Hey Folks, Looking for insights from anyone with a Boxster AND a Dash Cam. Just had a Black Vue installed and while the front camera works flawlessly, I haven't found an ideal spot to mount the rear camera. I'm currently using the screen behind the head rest hoops, but that doesn't really...

    I installed a new Sony AVX AX100 in my '07 Cayman (non-Bose). What a deal at $350 from Crutchfield, and they supply everything you need for an OEM look install for just $18.. including a perfectly matching surround bezel. The Sony is so inexpensive because 1) a new model has come out, causing...

    Hi, I've just had a dual dashcam installed into my 718 GTS, with a Power Magic Pro to manage the power to the camera for 'parking mode'. There are numerous different battery drain settings on the Power Magic Pro, in terms of when you want the camera to stop draining power from the battery...

    Has anyone had trouble with a license plate frame interfering with the rear camera? I just moved from a temporary plate to a metal plate yesterday and it seems to show up in the field of view. I was thinking of getting some sort of frame so it's not bare metal against the car, but I thought it...

    I see YouTube videos of guys on track and at the bottom of the screen is an overlay showing speed, lap time, location on track, etc. Who makes the best ones? Is it part of a package that includes a camera, or is it usable with any camera?

    Although my BS comes with F&R sensors, I've had a few occasions where I suddenly found people walking behind me as I was backing up. You would think the exhaust note would make them give me a wide berth but but it doesn't. So I've been looking for a backup camera solution. I did a bunch of...

    I dug into the VIRB a bit more and grabbed all the important metrics from within the camera itself, next time I'll link via BT to the OBDII port and get even more, but for now enjoy this update!

    In my brandnew 718 Boxster S I have a PCM rearview camera, which I never had in any previous car. Can anyone of you please explain to me (e.g. by means of a Youtube tutorial or something similar) what is the correct way to use it ? A simple tutorial would be very welcome !

    All, Just wanted to let everyone know that I recently installed the following aftermarket wireless backup camera and rear view mirror kit in my 2014 boxster S and it works great! My car is a Middle East spec so it had the European license plate without ugly bumps like the US spec...

    Now that I've picked up my 09 Boxster with Bose, I have discovered that the bluetooth only supports phone calls and not music streaming. DOH! I'm contemplating going aftermarket with the aliexpress MOST adapter. If I do that I'd like to add a backup camera and xm radio. I see comments about...

    I'd like to install an aftermarket backup camera, possibly birdseye / surround view setup on my 2014B base with CDR-31. I've seen lots of info on this for PCM. Screen resolution on CDR-31 seems more than sufficient. Any experience with this product?: Not sure I have it...

    Does anyone have any experience or knowledge of how to use the available (blank) center console buttons on a 981? I noticed on a youTube video that "Musicar Northwest" modified one of the available buttons to power on radar/laser detectors. In the video, they mention modifying the button to act...

    I would like to hardwire a radar detector and a camera to the dome light above the rear view mirror. Has anyone done this? I have looked around, but my searching skills must be lacking. I thought I saw someone had done this, but I can't find the link.

    I recently got a Canon T6s and I am trying to learn how to take some better pictures. I'm still getting used to the camera, so I just shot things in auto-focus mode. Enjoy!! :cheers:
