I did some searching but got nothing but dead ends, only reason I ask is because in cleaning out the garage I found a nice little waterproof back-up camera I bought for my tahoe and never installed. Was thinking of hooking it up on the V, which could be fun :rolleyes:

there is a compnay that said they could do it, but you need to send them your radio and they will solder a connector on.. it wasnt cheap either...

The video input on the display is RGB.

You will need a converter and also some switching (not a big deal) to convert the video from the camera to RGB, then switch into the lines to the display.

I think the parking brake switch input to the display also needs to be defeated, but on that I could be wrong.

The connectors in Reed's FAQ's gives pinouts.

I have been trying to find a vendor who can do this... I will keep trying...

I want a backup camera and other "cool" stuff...
