Anyone Install a Rear view camera in a LM?

Just don't want to re-invent the wheel if someone has done this. Interested in what unit they may have used.

So you used a wireless unit- no wired connections between display and camera- just wireless, right?

====================================================
Didn't you read the ad?? GGG Even the pic shows it's wireless.

On the LM screw in on the top holes of the license plate...cable plug to transmitter... RED on Transmit. goes to one B/U light.

Up front just a pos & Neg to connect [keyed] and it sets ontop of dash. I don't like them mounted low.

Matt, I just finished my install of wireless BU unit- I have power to both front and back when in reverse but no display appears. On the back of the display are 3 buttons menu, =, and -. Any idea what my issue is re: no display?

Have you switched the YELLOW lead between the White & Yellow on the Monitor?

Yellow to white correct?- yes BTW, tried it matching colors too. Could the signal just be masked by the engine compartment-??

My antenna is in the engine compartment, no problems. Put the transmitter outside and see if it helps.

OK, So I figured out what the issue was.... Some idiot forgot that the display needs to be powered too. When I find the guy who screwed this up I will deal harshly with him. Sorry for all the trouble guys--moody smiley
