What is the default pin on the VK-E1 car kit

Does this company still do work for private customers or only fleet work?

JanJ · The Car Kit Company

I realise that you deal only with fleet now-however had reverse sensors fitted to my outlander in 2013-monitor which shows distance in-car has ceased to work-sensors still fine!

can you tell me the brand that was used then--so my auto electrician can get hold of one-trying to avoid to purchase a complete kit again?

Hello, I have just bought a 2009 Kia Carnival Platinum. It has reverse parking sensors but no camera and not bluetooth. I have two options in my mind

1. Fit a screen on the dash board with reverse camera, bluetooth and whatever extras come with it. But the challenge with that the Kia has a very good sound system I was told that the dashboard option (fitting the unit in) with ruin the sound system - not sure true or not but do not want to take that risk

2. Have a rear view mirror with reverse camera and bluetooth

Any help with this before we go ahead?

Thanks SP

Hi SP, Yes, if the sound system that's been factory-fitted is high end, it makes it complicated to replace if there are amplifiers etc. Your best option would be a replacement rear-view-mirror for the reversing camera. Then, depending on how much you would use the Bluetooth, you could either opt for a mirror with the Bluetooth incorporated or an independent Bluetooth system. The independent system would be of a higher quality, with better sound and be integrated with the stereo system.

Hi Car Kit Company,

I would like to have a reversing camera + mirror for my Toyota Corolla Sport Hatch, Its number plate is too low for normal camera. It seems to me the best position for camera is at the button to open the back door, but the camera must be small. Would it be possible for you to install a camera like that for my car and a reversing mirror. If it would, could you please advise how much would they cost incl installation. Thanks

Would prefer not to have rear view mirror reversing camera. What alternative do you have for 2013 Honda Euro sedan?

The Car Kit Company
The Car Kit Company   DM   

Hi Robert, in that particular vehicle, we could remove the stereo and replace it with a new system that includes an LCD - giving you a reversing camera image incorporated into the dash as well as other features like Bluetooth, GPS etc. Feel free to give us a call on 1800 227 548 and we'd be glad to run you through some options and pricing.
