ACU-RITE ? What is it?

When washing the MoHo I discovered a small white box inside the rear camera housing that was lose. It has ACU-RITE name on it. It had been held in place by Velcro not sure if this is a factory item and what purpose it servers. The camera works fine. I assume it is some sort of wirerless sending or receiving unit but not sure.

Acu-Rite "is a manufacturer of numeric digital readout systems and linear encoders for machine tools", per their web page. Perhaps it is related to your rear camera sending a wireless signal to your display. I recently became aware of the AcuRite Refrigerator/Freezer Wireless Digital Thermometer and posted information on this on AirForums thread, "Your Top 5 Galley Must Haves", and in my article, "Cool... and wireless".

Silver Gate thanks for the response. I removed it from the camera housing because it was limiting the movement of the camera. O yes I discovered what the rear camera rocker switch was for on the dash .....to move the camera for a close up view or a longer view. Any way I removed the Acu Rite unit completely and the camera operates as it should. So still not sure what its function is.

Acu Rite also makes weather stations. Their remote sensors are " small white boxes" about 1 in by 3 in. I have one and that is how I would describe it. Does yours use a single battery and have a small light on the front (if the battery is good it will blink when updating)? You can GOOGLE for photo.

AWCHIEF thanks for the response. I don't have a weather station in the MoHo. the unit does have a small red light and takes 2 aaa batteries.

I bet AWCHIEF is right, though. The POs probably took the receiver unit but forgot about the transmitter.
