Back up camera options?

I just recently installed the Raxiom nav unit with sync in my 2013. I installed the camera that came with the unit but was wondering if there was anyone that installed a different one that has the guide lines with it. My wife has that option on her explorer and it is pretty nice. It looks the the camera hooks up through via S-video, would any camera work with that input?

Thank you everyone!

I found one from Rosen that plugs into the Raxiom plug (same company, Raxiom is the AM label). It did require removing the lense and flipping the camera around since this camera was designed to mount on a tailgate handle. It has the guide lines you requested. I thought of going wireless, but the single wire to the Raxiom is easy for power and automatically switches.

Great link. I remember seeing this thread before but forgot all about it. Looks great. I'm just not sure how well I would do at putting it all together again after I flipped the camera. I would be afraid that water would somehow still find its way in there.

I'll buy one and sent it to you and you can fix it for me! 😆

It's really easy. These things are in plastic cases, not steel safes. Just a couple of screws and it pops off. To put it back you just need some silicone available at Target for $4. Mine's still running strong, and we get plenty of rain in Louisiana.

Ok, sounds good. I might try this project out this month sometime. Just to clarify... Just as simple as unscrewing, flipping camera, resealing, putting back together, then plug into the s-video cable from my old camera. Thanks for your help.

Yeah, if you use the cable that comes with the Rosen unit you'll have to coil up a bunch of extra in the spare tire well. The connector isn't quite the same. So you can either run the new cable the same path or leave a coil in the tire well.

So this camera thing will add more weight, but zero HP? Bad deal

Well the camera will add turbulance to the rear of the vehicle, helping to improve airflow over the trunk and reduce drag, so...

Also, much easier to drive in reverse in high speed chases or bank getaways.

True but I'm taking out one of my turn signal bulbs to even the weight back out since nobody here in Florida uses them anyway! Lol
