    I have now fitted an Apple CarPlay kit that is working well. I added the optional rear view camera and that too works okay other than after about 30 mins of the car running, when I select reverse gear, the image on the display has a strobing/flickering effect. I tried fitting an inline rectifier...

    Hello all,. Does anyone have Side View cameras fitted and are they giving you the image you expected?
