    Samsung Galaxy S connecting to car camera? I am getting cheap reversing camera that connects to NTSC and instead of getting a car monitor can I hook up the camera to my phone (since I have a cradle anyway)...I thought perhaps using the TV out function?Just a thought...:rolleyes:

    I've been thinking the same for my Galaxy Note - either with a Bluetooth 12v camera, wireless IP camera, or worse case through a wired camera, but they all fail at the Note point.

    I'm pretty sure I have seen an RGB to Note adapter cable somewhere, but think this is predominantly designed as an output from the Note to the RGB connected device.

    I want to use the Note as the screen for the remote camera, even better if I could have more than one camera (or a moveable camera) for hitching up the caravan or reversing the caravan, when I don't have a spotter with me.

    Hopefully someone has some ideas? Thanks.

    The UK e-bay site has cameras built for certain cars, e.g. for the Ford Mondeo, do a search on - "Rear-View-Reverse-WIRELESS-CCD-Camera-for-FORD-MONDEO-FIESTA-FOCUS-S-Max-KUGA" (sorry I can't post a link)

    It's not made clear though if the radio signal that this uses is "bespoke" or if it's of the 802.11 variety that my Samsung phone can detect and use.

    I'm sure that I read that it uses the 2.4GHz frequency band but of course there's more to it than just that.

    If anyone can help with this, it would be much appreciated.

    Thanks
