Smile hmmm... possible interesting use of the car kit thingee... - 12-30-2010, 08:19 AM

i just got the car kit setup.

i noticed that the camera is blocked. and since the holder is plastic, i'm thinking about drilling a hole and let the camera see through it..

then use the video recorder to recording driving stuff...

i have a couple setups including a camcorder mount i rigged on the seat head rest. but since i have the streak everywhere i go...

why not?

If your talking about the genuine car kit then this is something i did a month ago, but instead of drilling holes i only put the phone in upto camera level, problem is it was recording the bracket too, but of you dash mount the kit you get around it, recorder only lasts 10mins though,

I've done this, .. not too difficult, .. the hardest part is that the hole for the camera lens falls RIGHT where the rubber part meets the hard plastic part. So you have to drill a hole through two different materials (and the rubber doesn't take to drilling well). Works great, but you still have to install the dock in such a way that the mounting arm and cup aren't in the picture.
