My 2010 LR4 doesn't have a backup camera and the wife would really like one. 

 

From some initial research, I'm seeing that you can retrofit a back up camera and then code the truck's config file to Backup Camera Fitted in order to enable the camera and it's a relatively straightforward retrofit.

 

There's an OEM part for sale on eBay: https://www.ebay.com...er/162756427333

 

Anyone have any thoughts on this?

I've never messed with the audio or nav systems myself.  I'm assuming you have the factory nav screen already, but I'm not sure if there's a video input on it directly or not.  I suspect the camera plugs into a separate processor first.  Also, I'm not sure if the camera's output is a standard video cable or if it's something proprietary so you may want to look into that.  You may need more than just the camera.

There are some WiFi versions available now that connect with your phone or tablet and run off batteries. Considered it for the D1 and may do eventually...think it would be nice on the trail too.

Just found this thread on how to do exactly what I was hoping to do. Definitely more work than I was expecting. Thought the truck would be pre-wired with the coax cable for the video feed. May need to take it to someone as I'm not comfortable DIY this one.

This is def an option, though being an iPhone user, I'm not aware of any that wouldn't be clunky to use.... e.g. first open the app, then put in reverse, etc. Let me know if you've come across any good options in your research.

Reading through the thread on Disco3 it looks straightforward if you purchase the camera and two LR factory looms... the other bit is the coax which will probably mean the headliner needs to come down or be moved to stuff the cable behind it.

 

The harder part might be the work to get the coax behind the dash... sounds like a cool project for a wrenching day though.

 

I agree that no 3rd party kit will compare to having the actual LR factory kit installed...

You know who would be good to talk to is Nils. I can’t recall exactly but he installed a back up camera on his LR3. His set up was really good. He might even be willing to help install one for you.
