    Which is very readily available on aliexpress.com and the only clean way to add the camera making it feel very factory.

    This would / could also make it technically possible to integrate a FLIR camera (aka nightvision) and have it display on the nav screen while moving forward if you setup a manual trigger method (which makes some assumptions about it's inherent design)

    why cant you just use the AUX input for that?

    Technically we can for the reverse cam but i prefer for it to default to it automatically when putting in reverse. To install night-vision you should just run the AUX so you can have access to it any time...

    yeah it possible to buy the camera, but it doesn't fit STS directly, cause they change the hole size in the trunk where backup camera and license plate lights located. So to install it same way as OEM you need to buy SLS trunk lid too

    09 should fit. The 10+ is different more round mounting.

    Re: Backup Camera Interface

    ...really...?...a complete trunk lid? ...if...this will be...ouch... ...ok...no OEM install...

    ...but...the "2010" part as shown is not just another design...this is the "center" part, for the trunk switch/touch pad, not the lh license plate lamp/housing...(for SLS with backup camera they changed and "shortened" the switch to place the camera)

    ...so you will also need an original 2010-up SLS trunk switch/touch pad to use this chromed "center" part with camera...alieexpress only sells the cromed part with camera...it doesn't contain the trunk switch...

    ...the part shown in the first link is the lh license plate light, which might be the easier install...unfortunately it is black, not chromed...

    OEM is $ due to increased functionality. It will not show parking grid with lines and turn with the wheel like newer cars cuz we aren't programmed for it.
    For $20 it will be fine. I bought it and honestly who would notice the lack of chrome vs the other trim. I bought one ill post up how it looks when I'm done.

    This is assuming you also have a lockpick installed...
    I haven't had my lockpick or audio input device (iSimple audio gateway) installed for months due to the dealer's blaming them for my speed limited to 120mph ongoing issue.

    If this device will use the LAN to determine if it is in reverse then that would be ideal but I feel that it would need a trigger wire of some kind like is used on aftermarket backup camera additions that basically turn on when the backup lamps are on.

    Likely it will use a relay trigger. Reverse lights activate wire which trips relay which forces nav to camera mode.

    I tested some of them, working so-so, better than nothing, but it has cheap matrix and lens as result mediocre image quality.
    oem camera should be much better. Going to try it later.....not now

    So when you shift from drive to park and vice versa and your reverse lights cut on for that split second, the nav will be forced into backup camera mode? Hopefully there's some kind of a delay built into it.

    You would either have to design the delay into the unit or have a time delay relay. Ideally it would keep the backup camera active for about 5 seconds after you change gears too like oem does so you can move forward and back without dealing with waiting for display lag.

    Yep forgot about a delay to keep it on when it's put back into drive.

    I just use safari on my iPhone when doing the forums.
