Thanks
Ask Nav TV to recommend an installer or buy direct and find a business who is willing to talk to navtv and let nav walk them through a few steps.

I'll experiment and hope to end up with a front and rear camera setup. I will be using the NAV-TV box.
Do you have any reviews? I'm thinking about using the shark.
Thank you

Reading through the posts and please correct me if wrong.
Mopar makes an install kit costing $200+ yet wires direct to Alpine NAV systems. You still need to dealership to flash (rest computer) to turn on backup camera.

Or, you can go direct to Apline and order Alpine HCE-C115 Rear View Camera $120 and installs directly for half the price. Yet you still need dealer to flash computer.

Couple other companies listed in previous posts mention $200+ systems requiring splicing into reverse lights, accessory wires and ignition sources. But, they work and have positive reviews above.

Can anyone point me in a proper direction? Would like to wire this up before the weekend if possible. Thanks in advance and please correct anything I missed.

Just keep your factory warranty in mind. Adding accessories that were not there when you drove it home from the dealer can be detrimental to your warranty if there's ever a problem.

This is only true regarding the systems tinkered with. They can not dissolve the warranty over a modification.

I have an aftermarket JVC HU and installed an Alpine camera on mine.

I mounted it with the bracket and the 3M adhesive on my rear bumper centered under the spare.

It depends on what type of problem it is having. A backup camera probably won't affect a warranty claim on a faulty water pump.

If, for instance, the $2,000 uConnect unit stopped working and they get in there and discover that someone had installed a non-factory backup camera you better hope you're dealing with a mod friendly dealer or you'll be paying out of pocket for a new unit.

That looks familiar. I mounted in the same spot. I made up a mount using carbon fiber / carbon Kevlar cloth and epoxy painted it black for uv and then riveted it to the spare tire carrier

I'll try to post pictures later and all of the equipment information, but I had someone else do the install (I don't trust myself). The installer I used had better experiences with Nav TV (though you'll see a lot of write-ups about the Lockpick as well) so I went with the Nav TV All-Gig (NAV-TV Corporation: ALLGIG_XG-HS Video in Motion bypass for Dodge, Chrysler and Jeep vehicles) with the A/V harness (NAV-TV Corporation: AllGIG A/V & Camera Harness). The camera was an Alpine, though I don't remember the exact model but it had nightvision on it because I was concerned with lighting. I had it mounted with a couple screws right above the hitch and below the 5th wheel. I've seen installs through the 5th wheel but was concerned with the angle and missing a kid shorter than the camera height right up against the vehicle. The bumper location allows me a view of basically the ground at the 5th wheel tire location and then back pretty far, estimating 20 feet but I'll try to get a better sense later. The very top of the screen barely shows the bottom of the 5th tire. I've tried the nav functions in motion and works perfectly.
Does this setup disable the speed on your nav? I use that more than the actual speedometer and I've read that the system basically makes your nav think your stopped so it freezes up the nav as well as stops it from knowing your speed and providing accurate destination times.

With this camera :

Amazon.com : Esky EC170-08 100% Waterproof Vehicle Car Rear View Backup Camera High-definition CCD 170 Degree Viewing Angle - Rearview Camera : Car Electronics

Question for anyone running the Commander camera: do you have any condensation issues? Mine has moisture in the lens making it almost useless. Just curious if anyone else is having a similar issue.

Would love to find a back-up camera solution for my 2014 JKU. However, the two reviews listed on the vender's website for this particular product are not stellar. Also, the install requires that you have no spare tire cover. In wet, rainy Seattle, the outside of our vehicles get coated with grit and grime in the winter. So I prefer to run with a tire cover - in case I ever have to use the spare, it is not a grimy mess to manhandle. (Yes, I realize I will need to clean the camera lens. My two previous SUV's had back-up cams and parking sensors. In fact, my X5 came with 5 cameras installed.)

Where did you buy that mirror? I can't find it on Amazon. Is it easy to take out the stock mirror to replace with this?
