There is amodule that needs to be installed to interface camera to the factory navigation. Camera can NOT be connected directly to navigation.[/align][/align]I have a backup camera connected to my factory navigation that activates in reverse.I had the technician add a switch so I can active the camera while driving so I can keep an eye on my dirt bikes while pulling my trailer. I also had the tech mount my camera high (mounted in the rear upper marker light cavity) so I can get a full view of whatever I have hitched.[/align]

Of course color, looks as clear as acolor TV very clear, however at night it goes to a night black, and white mode but still a very clear, and defined view.

One more thing, when you pick a interface, make sure you get one with an additional video jack so you can tap video into it. I have mines setup soa DVD can be shown through the factory Nav screen, tech also added a switch so I have that option.

There are tons of em' on-line. I'm not even positive what brand I have cuz I made it a point to have it installed at my dealer so I won't have any issues with my warranty,or installation. I just told them (dual video jacks) what I wanted before they ordered, and installed it.

In fact, I had a DVD addition completed by a reputable local custom car audio shop. The shop installed adual drive 9" Visualogic head rests to mirror one of the dvd players, and added my DVD/Nav switch, and rear camera/Nav switch.
