Nest, any modifications or improvements?

I now have a Voyager back up cam added to my Nest. It is mounted above the high marker light above the door and is powered off the marker light. It is nice to see what is behind me going down the highway or backing up.

Thanks for this info. I too got the voyager and wired it for a continuous rear facing camera. I ran the wires on the surface for the few inches to the running light. I didnít have the fortitude to drill that big (1/2Ē) hole in my new Nest for the wiring harness. Electronics being what they are , you never know the longevity of an item. Nice job on the instillation and thanks for sharing your experience.

@ TheHoff óIíve been looking for a good, continuous rearview camera for our NEST. But like you, Iím wary about drilling holes in the roof. Is your Voyager camera installed on the roof just above the top running light (i.e.like buzzkill58 did)? How did you attach the Voyager camera bracket?

@ TheHoff and buzzkill58 ó How does the camera module communicate with the screen module? WiFi, Bluetooth or some proprietary RF system?

FWIW I installed an inexpensive license-plate-frame rearview camera on our X5, that is pointed down at the hitch for easier hookups. It creates a WiFI network, which allows using my iPhone as its screen. I wired it to be continuous so that it would remain active even when the X5 isnít in Reverse. This system might have the range to use on the NEST but it ties up my iPhone, and the view would be pretty low.

Thanks in Advance

The bracket is installed with two small screws (supplied with device). The opening behind the running light had to be enlarged to accommodate the camera wiring harness. The wireless connection is not Bluetooth and is automatic when both camera and monitor are powered. I found a great spot in my Audi to attach the monitor with industrial Velcro and I leave it there all their time. The biggest issue was when removing the running light, the bolts holding it in place were toggle bolts, so the toggles fell into the wall, never to be seen again. I replaced them with plastic drywall fasteners which are fine since when remounting the running light, I used a lot of silicone which is a very effective adhesive as well as a waterproof product. Good luck. Be sure you verify polarity with a multimeter before hooking up the camera.

Hi! It is wireless. Not sure what the protocol is used for the connection, but it is not Bluetooth.
