    Rearview/Back up Camera to Ipad

    So I have been doing alot of research on trying to figure out a way to video in into the Ipad. I currently have an Ipad installed in my car (see pic below) and I also have a back up camera mounted just above my license plate where the license plate light was originally. My plan was to just wire the camera to a rearview mirror monitor I had but apparantly the monitor I have is broken (no power) So now I am back to trying to figure out a way to video in into the Ipad so I can open up some type of app that will show the input from the camera. Is there any way possible with the current camera I have (link below for camera) to make this happen or is this just impossible due to the Ipads firmware??

    I have been looking into a cord like this (link below) which could possibly work but as far as getting the video feed to show on the Ipad I have no clue....

    It may not be impossible but remember that visitors who are not members cannot post but they count in the views if they visit your thread. It may just be a matter of waiting for the right member coming along with the response you need.

    Backup camera

    I have also been looking to do this (with an ipad2). If anyone know a solution for this please post.
    P.S. I did find a Bluetooth camera in the U.K. But very expensive solution. $300.

    I love your idea and I do hope someone does come along who knows about these things.

    The way you have your iPad mounted looks very streamlined...may I ask how you have mounted it there.

    Have you tried an app called eyeTransport??
    I don't know if it will pick up this cameras blue tooth that you mentioned in link?
    I was thinking along the same lines when I saw this app!
