Rear view Mirror with back up camera

Ones anyone out there have or have used a Rear View mirror with a Built in Temp, Compass and a Back Up Camera?
I want to put one in my '99 TJ but there are so many from Japan and others that are out of vehicles that I do not own and they won't easily wire to my Jeep.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks!

Pretty sure the camera was never a Jeep option. You will need to go aftermarket on that if you really want one.

I was looking at an aftermarket AM/FM DVD STEREO for my TJ that, among other things, has the wiring for a rear camera. You can get a license plate holder that has the rear camera already in it. Then you just hook the two together, and you're good to go.

When you're in reverse, the DVD screen shows you what's behind you.

x2 on the aftermarket option. I didn't think you will ever need one in a TJ with so many windows and such a short wheel base. I can see needing one on the newer 4dr models though.

Plus, you need to remember that the license plate is ONLY on the left side of the vehicle. You'd only be able to see what's on the left, but not what's on the right. But, like you said, with such a short wheelbase, I don't really think a rearview camera would be necessary.

I was looking at the aftermarket stereo for its DVD ability. I go to a local drive in, & in order to get a good parking spot, I get there kinda early.

It would be nice to be able to watch a DVD, while I'm waiting for the movie to begin.

In the past 4 or 5 years, there used to be 3 drive ins around here. Two have closed up, & the last one seems to be running strong.

$6 to watch 2 up-to-date movies.
You can't beat that, going to a walk-in movie.

Plus, you can take your shoes off, without offending anyone.

Here's a picture, looking through the windshield of my wife's car (before I had my jeep), waiting for the Drive In to open its gates.

You can see that it is still daylight.
Plenty of time to get a great spot & watch a DVD before the movie.
