So if I put it in park and then back to reverse, I would see the camera go off and then back on within 1-2 seconds.
But if I don't use the camera for 3 minutes, then it goes 'cold' again and then it takes 12 seconds for it to power on the next time.
It seems strange that the 'cold start' takes so long.
Please let me know if you think I might have a defective unit.
I think I can still get an exchange for it, but it would be a pain to remove and re-install the camera.
Thanks in advace for all your help.
For mine, I definitely don't have any sort of "cold start" issues. It just goes on right away every time. Did you get the harness from SVXDC? Do you have it wired to your reverse light? Mine had a small red wire next to the AV jack on the camera harness which I didn't hook up. Did you get it through the same seller as the auction I listed?
