I know this question has been asked numerous times, but I could not find a clear answer to how difficult it is to add an aftermarket backup camera using the stock Navi screen.
Is this a plug n play installation where an aftermarket camera can be connected to the backside of the Navi unit by use of an adapter or is there a dedicated module for the backup camera system? I read their may be a dedicated module on the passenger side somewhere.
I also heard about using the Nav-tool as an option to feed video onto the stock Navi screen. Is there a good DIY on this forum if going down this route? Where can I find a good deal on the Nav-tool? Used to see group deals for these before.
Hope to hear anyone's thoughts on this subject as I have read many posts with similar questions with no response. Thanks in advance!
All u need is a 4-pin backup camera plug like this one I just added a backup camera for my 2004 ES330 using stock navigation with this plug
