Low cost camera

Postby CharlieP » Mon Aug 29, 2016 2:42 am

Most of the MFD's have a video input at the moment, but the options for cameras often cost more than my boat!

If you look at the hobby drone market, gimbals and low light cameras are coming in at less than $50 (and they usually run on 12v) Now if someone were to put together a nice little IP68 enclosure with an Arduino nmea2000 controller, with this linked into a joystick mfd combo, say the TZT2 with MCU002 running a little android app outputting positioning commands over nmea2000 for less than $400 then I suspect that might be a winner!

CharlieP,

We really do try to develop good products that our customers need, and that will bring good value to the marketplace.
Thanks again for your feedback.
