    Backup Cameras

    Has anyone installed an aftermarket camera into a car that was built before these were a thing?

    • What did you get?
    • Did you get wireless or wired?
    • What was your experience?
    • What would you do differently?

    I installed one in my wagon a few years ago. It was just a basic one from amazon. I used the included hole saw and installed it in the rear hatch. It just plugged into the back of my head unit so I’d don’t have to worry about another screen to mount or anything. Wiring it up wasn’t to hard. Just took some time feeding all the cables into the hatch. I’m sure a sl or sc would be a bit easier. The only thing I would do differently is just getting a better quality one. Maybe one with infrared alike what I have in the Saab.

    Here is where my camera is at



    Then the view on the screen.



    The resolution isn’t the greatest for that big of a screen. With a smaller one it wouldn’t be bad.
