Revisiting the parking camera again

Hi guys,

I'm revisiting installing my parking camera, as I've not done anything about it for a whole year now!
I'm starting to make up the cable to connect into the rear of the sat-nav, and I was wondering what connectors people have used.

I'm sure I read somewhere here that someone used a couple of floppy drive connectors as the spacing for those is right. Can anyone confirm? I'd really like to get the cable made up before I take the dashboard apart.

Thanks!

The floppy connectors are not the correct size they will bend the pins.

Thanks Bog, what kind of connector did you use in your cables? I have access to a bunch of stuff at the moment, so I may already have something that will work.

Ok, another rumour is that an ITX motherboard connector is correct? Can you confirm?

The pins in the connector will fit the pins on the navi, but not the connector itself.

You'll need one of these with a few of the connectors (3?) cut off if you buy the 10-way item. You will also need the terminals which are sold separately. It is the same type of (Molex) connector fitted to PC fan headers.

Thanks Fr0d!
I have loads of old PC components lying around, so I may decide to mutilate a few old fans. If not, I'll by the 10 way strip from Maplins.
