In this thread, post #59 is extremely helpful.
I have some reservation about the business practice of Maxspeed. I bought their version one kit and nowhere there was mention that I needed to splice and solder the OEM harness. First time I read that is when they advertise version 2. The version 1 installation is a real pain in the but and my...www.planet-9.com
Thanks for the referral. I'm very impressed with how Maxspeed presents itself on its website. I'll definitely be pursuing a solution through them.
I just finished an install of a Maxspeed camera in a 2016 BGTS. Install went fine and everything works.
For anyone else contemplating installing a Maxspeed camera: Their current setup will only work if your PCM is at least version 4.xx. Mine is version 3.43. Their website says they'd have a work-around available 2 months ago that involves a rearview mirror swap (video there instead of PCM screen). But, Nello told me yesterday that they've scrapped that. Instead, they expect to have an alternative version ready to go by the end of January that will work the same as the original kit.With the top up, my 2013 Boxster is downright dangerous to back up. Has anyone experience with putting in a rear view camera?
What company/website did you use? Have you a photo of what your installation looks like?I installed a rear camera in my 987.2 and I liked it so much I added a front camera. I posted a how-to on another popular Porsche forum. Mine are independent from the PCM so I have an extra screen mounted on the dashboard. Each camera has it's own switch and I can turn them on at any time when the car ignition is on. I never want another car without cameras! Good luck with your install.
