730N and back up camera

i have a 14 jkur with the 730N radio. i plan on keeping the radio and add a back up camera. since there is not a factory plug in for the camera, does anyone make an adapter that would work? also what camera is best to use, waterproof,mud/sand proof,ect.
thanks

NAV-TV makes an adapter for like $60 you can buy if you just want rear view camera capability. You MUST have your dealer flash your head unit to accept a rear view camera, mine did it free of charge as it takes 5 minutes to do the flash.

I purchased a $27 camera off amazon and it's worked great. I've been in mud and water and rocks with no issues.

I went with a LockPick http://www.amazon.com/Coastal-MYGIG-...lock+pick+jeep
And I used this backup camera. Amazon.com : HDE E336 Waterproof Rear Vehicle Backup Camera With 170 degree Viewing Angle : Back Up Car Camera : Electronics
Both work great and the lockpick opens up your UConnect radio to a lot of great options.

nah, I bought my solution for first world problems from a 3rd world supplier.

4.3 lcd? $25
camera? $15

for those prices, even 3rd world people can mount them on their vehicles

Where and how did you mount this camera?

I bought this same camera. It was only $14.95. I mounted mine on the bottom of my trailer hitch cap, but I am thinking of moving it as that may be too low so I am going to try a few other areas to see what might work better.

One thing about this camera is that it only has about a 90 degree movement from the base. so you can mount it on something flat that is perpendicular to the ground (such as the back of the bumper) or underneath something that is parallel to the ground (such as under your bumper).

If you search for threads with the keyword "camera", you'll find several threads, many with some good advice. Here's just a couple to get you started:

I have the max tow package, this is where I mounted my camera.

Doesn't give you the best angle, but honestly the only reason I got a camera was for all the kids in my neighborhood and the fact my kids love to leave things in my driveway. Gives me a little extra help.

It works great and it's survived off road so I'm happy.

Here's what you'll need:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Everything plugs directly into my 730N unit (I believe it will work with the 430N too). All that's needed is a trip to the dealer to have them enable the backup camera feature on the unit. Let me know if you have any questions, the install is pretty easy. Toughest part was running the wires to the front of the car.

I mounted it on the passengers side of the hitch. I removed the silver bumper that came with the Sahara, because I liked the black look, and the screw that is used to mount the bumper was a perfect fit for the camera.

Brandmotion makes a backup camera that integrates easily with you factory display, no NAV TV or Lockpick required. The kit mounts seamlessly behind your spare wheel, with the added OBDII programming module, you don't have to take your vehicle to a dealer to program the computer.

If you are interested, here is a link to the kit (part number 9002-8827): Brandmotion.com

I realize you may not be able to confirm this, but this system looks exactly like the AEV one. If so, with a 25% discount it makes it a lot better than the AEV one

I have a 730n and backup camera. I think like this layout better. I wish they would make with the stock adaptor and without the programmer. Since mine is already star scanned the programmer would be a waste of money.

I may be wrong, but I thought that is what the $299 kit was?

the mount is little different because the brand motion one works on rubicon wheels. the aev one does not. also the aev one comes with the 3rd break light

Could you elaborate how you installed the camera inside the hitch area? What model of camera did you buy?

I installed the Brandmotion kit over the weekend. Install is very strait forward. I did mess up one part. I put the pins in in the wrong sides of the 22 pin connector and messed them up trying to pull them out. It was my fault. I was impatient and used too big of a screw driver to get them out. I called Brandmotion and explained what happend. They FedExed me new pins and a new 22 pin connector. They were very responsive and great to deal with.

I have not had much of a chance to test the camera out but Ii seems a little dark to me.

+1 Same here. I love mine and have recently used it to aid in hooking up watercraft to tow. I can line em right up with the backup cam.

The only problem with the AEV camera, that the Brandmotion doesn't have, is that the AEV will not fit the factory Rubicon wheel style. The Rubicon wheel has holes/slots that are too narrow for the AEV camera.
