    03 EXT rear view camera

    looking to add a rear view camera to my truck

    will the stock head unit display/accept camera input ?

    if not are there any known displays/head units that still allow steering function buttons to control ?

    OR has anyone here installed a r/view say.. license plate mount or inserted one below gate handle and are very happy with it ?

    thanks for any and all suggestions

    There is add ons that allow you to use the stock head unit

    As far as the camera location I don't like having mine mounted on the license plate and at night the back up lights make the night vision act up

    I've seen people drill a hole in the bumper to the left of the license plate or use the spare tire key slot. You could put it in the tow hitch or they sell a rear view mirror with a tiny 3 inch screen in it

    I would recommend NavTool but it says 05-06 not sure if the 04 navigation unit can support it

    I put in a new kenwood system, so I'm no help there. I added a camera to the bumper, next to the hitch. You don't see it unless you're looking for it.

    I don't know about the camera mount
    But the radio install should be easy as the wires on the interface should be color coded to the ones on the radio
    As far as getting the radio in the dash
    Tilt the steering wheel as low as it will go
    Then put the truck in first(hold the brake) and remove the dash bezel (I start at the right lower corner)
    The factory radio is held in with three screws you will need a 7mm socket to remove them the rest is just unplug the harnesses

    There is a adapter for the antenna since the factory connection is smaller then aftermarket radios antenna connection I ran into this issue when I installed a aftermarket radio in my grandmas Buick
    I got it at Walmart (it was included with the harness but you can buy one separately)

    Gmos interface should have instructions but the wires should be color coded the same as the radio

    Shoot me a email to the address I posted so you can send me pics of the harnesses and interface
    I think there is a program setting or something that has to be done
