Default 2007 Jaguar Vanden Plas Rear View Camera

Hi, I'm a new member and live on Apple Hill in Camino, Ca. I just bought a used 2007 XJ8 Vanden Plas. The car has a Navigation system but it doesn't have a Backup Camera. When I was searching around I found a YouTube presentation that shows a car audio store in Jacksonville, FL. installing a rear license plate camera and hooking it into the existing Navigation monitor. Has anyone else done this? If you did, is it working OK over time. Here is the YouTube presentation:




PS: Anyone in the Sacramento area? Where did you have the installation done?

Default Backup Camera

If this is like most of the newer cars, the accessories are all wired in at the factory. If all that is missing is the backup camera you can probably purchase one from a local dismantler. The installation should be straight forward and the wiring for the camera should be in the trunk area.

Default Backup Camera

I found a shop in Sacramento that is scheduled to install an Alpine unit next week. They do all of the BMW work in the area so I suspect they will treat my Jag with respect. Basically when the gear shift is in reverse the camera will show on the factory navigation screen. When the camera is in, coupled with the factory parking assist, all will be well. I tend to run into things while backing up. Old people do that sort of thing.
