F-cam app

Postby timothy_83 » Mon Mar 25, 2019 6:23 am

I have a ND0294B (CSN2) bought via autopumpkin.com order number: 100003688. I have upgraded the firmware to 201902201912.
I have a Nissan 360 camera system where the front camera is a permanent feed into the 'reverse camera' line when the car is not in reverse gear. I need a way to bring the reverse camera feed up quickly without going into reverse.

1. I have enabled the F-cam app using the factory setting and it works using the default launcher. However every time I set it as an icon in the home screen it disappears (the icons reset to default) after a factory configuration change or after a fast boot. Is there any way to save F-cam as a home screen application permanently?

2. Using CarWebGuru launcher, all the screen configuration is saved after a fast boot, however F-cam does not show in the list of applications I can add to screen. Is there anyway of using F-cam in other launcher?

100003688 does not support the original 360 camera system, the car has 2 video input channels cam-in (switched by reverse-in line) and av-in (switched through the AVin icon of the main menu)

Hi Jam,

Thank you for your response. The Nissan 360 system is not the same as the standard 360 system where there are 4 feeds going into the headunit. Because Nissan has it's own control module outside the headunit combining the images into a single feed. So the Cam-in feed actually shows the front of the car and the 'birds-eye' view when I'm not in reverse.

The F-cam app actually does work for this because I can open the app and look at the Cam-in feed. I am aware I have an option of splitting my Cam-In feed so that in goes into the AV-in too. Although I heard the AVin app stops the music from playing so it is not idea.

My issue is the F-cam app does not save on the home screen. And when using a different Android launcher, the F-cam app disappears from the list so I can't use it even if I enabled it in factory setting, I'm guessing that's because F-cam app is built and optimised for the default launcher and is not a standard app.

Do you have an alternative app/apk I can install that performs the same function as F-cam app?

Hi,

Is the 360 camera system original or aftermarket?

Original. I have a 'retention' adapter which converts the feed to a RCA signal.
