Awesome idea ! Silly question but can you still turn the camera off to use the radio functions without turning off the headlights?

Camera for Ford Transit

When the van is filled with kids, it is impossible to see out the back. The camera was a standard licence plate mounted camera. The camera install was no issue, but the review mirror took some modifications. The Transit does not use a standard mount. I had to remove the bracket from the factory mirror and modify it to fit the new LCD. This made a huge difference when driving. I can turn it on/off from the mirror.

I am waiting for one of these to be available to replace the camera I have now.

I found that Vardsafe also sell this camera on Ebay ,and I bought the complete system for my Ford Transit 2015,works fine.
