Ok. So you pay $325 and get $200 back when the loader is returned.

So the cost is basically $125...that is reasonable. His website DOES NOT read that plainly.

Plug in with ignition off then turn ignition on wait for the lights on loader to complete and then turn ignition off and unplug. How I did mine and it works great.

Just read through all 5 pages of this. So if you do the VIM yourself using the returnable cable, and you want to hook up a rear camera, how do you handle the auto-switch wiring for the rear camera?

real auto switch can be only purchased with VIM included unless you can find a used one

or you can just hit the rear aux button on the radio when you're shifting into reverse anyways, your hand's there already, just extend finger?

I have a mirror solution that autoswitches but it doesn't use the radio rear aux so can't help you there.

Monaro, d'oh. Because the autoswitch is controlled by the VIM unit (that's why it stays in the vehicle---no core refund).
Someone could always figure out the rear aux harnessing themselves, but the issue still arises with trying to figure out how to wire in the relay, etc and trace the reverse signal.

autoswitch and relay are two different items and sold separately

autoswitch
Automatically switching car to rear-AUX for you backup camera when you put car in reverse and switching it back when you take it out of reverse
