Reverse cam

Post by casuk » Sat Apr 03, 2021 9:18 am

Was looking to get this fitted by the intellilink guys in Newcastle, they will do the cam and update for £99 just wondering if it's worth the £99 and the 2.5 hour drive, also if anyone has this fitted what's your review after some use

Hi
I travelled to Blyth from Manchester, a 2.5hr drive each way to have intellilinkmods fit my reverse camera. So for £99 fitted plus £40 fuel and £1.80 tunnel toll each way (£142.60 total). Great result for me and after a bit of practice using the coloured section markers on the screen and a large cardboard box, works well, very pleased.
I choose not to use the second set of markers that are linked to the steering wheel angle sensor so leave them off.

Wish Intellilink replied to messages. Very ignorant.

Glad you've managed to get an appointment. £99 is a bargain. Wish my Astra had a reversing cam but the sensors were brilliant on their own.

Yes it is and you can hardly see it, I never notice it to be honest.

Yes you are correct had trouble getting an appointment myself. I ended up calling him through his WhatsApp page.
The guy has a day time job aswell as running intellilinkmods.

I suppose that's understandable. You'd think with such expertise and good job he's doing, that's the full time job. :o

Yes you would, he tends to fit the cameras etc at weekends, as presumably his full time job takes precidence during the week. He is a knowledgeable chap and only 25.
