Has anyone tried adding a front facing camera to the screen housing? We should be able to bring the video feed into the infotainment system and save to a usb drive with a background app running....

Interesting idea...
Going to follow this thread see if anyone tried/tries it ?
Trying to think what the benefits would be other then just doing it? *If it were connected to a rear cam I could see some usefulness in viewing what the camera see's?

I use a Rexing V1 3rd Generation 4K UHD WiFi for the front and will be mounting the same model in the *rear window soon.

Better to have it at the top of the windshield, as it provides a better perspective of your vehicle in relation to the vehicles around you.

interesting... good point. I wonder if it would be possible to repurpose any of the hardware in the upper smart city breaking unit... (i personally disabled the stupid thing, I know how to drive and do not want the car EVER braking for me...)
