    Up to 65.

    I have to say I'm always a bit cautious about these kinds of lists as all they do is account for interest, but not commitments.

    I had 120 on the Lighted T pre-order list but less than 60 have actually ordered. As only less than 24 hours have passed since they went on sale I know I need to allow for more time, but on the other hand we don't want to commit $ to a production volume that will leave us with leftover and costly inventory.

    I think we are talking apples and oranges here. First, you are correct in that it has not even been 24 hours since you launched the marketplace. There's a good chance that at lease a few people haven't even read your PM yet. Others may have felt that there was little chance of getting to be the first 60. Second, the Lighted T, while very cool, is still a gimmick, and really just for fun. The front camera could be considered a necessity for many drivers, considering that PDC was not available for some time. Even though I have PDC, I am still interested. I guess the main detractor for this feature is the cost of the camera itself.

    When you demo the switch at the get together in Feb., can you please record the demo, for those of us that are unable to attend the event. Thanks.

    Agree.

    Someone else has PM'd me with a suggestion that we take a non-refundable deposit that would be credited against the selling price. We'll consider that when it's time to finalize production volume.

    I would give it time. Maybe for those who have ordered it and then installed it, we can send in our pictures to this forum to show how it looks. We can also comment on the ease of installation. That may generate more interest.

    Anyway, I want to thank you for the hard work you have put in.

    I would love to have the front camera too, but do not think I will be able to install it myself. How long does installation take? And any suggestions as to who I should contact for installation?

    This a very easy job for any aftermarket shop -- sound system installer, radar detectors, etc.

    How will the unit be controlled? Remote or connected via Daylight Running lights. I would prefer someway to auto toggle with Rear Camera. Basically when in reverse the rear camera works but when in Drive the front camera active. Anyway to make it work like that?

    Very interested. Please add me to the list. My wife already made a booboo when parking and the front curb touched the lower black piece.

    Do we know whether the original non-tech package lower-res camera can interface with the new hi-def camera? If so, I would also join in.
