mines at the dealer right now getting one installed. They threw it in with the purchase of the vehicle. They said that they are putting it where the hitch would be, but since i don't plan on towing anything with a hitch, im ok with that, else they were going to put it inside the spare tire

I followed this member's lead for my 430N.

I had the deal StarScan mine & I'm ordering this camera which I'll probably install in the bumper. It comes w/ the video RCA cable long enough to reach the radio & a lead for power which will reach the back up lights harness.

this is the only C3 connector I've found. to get this to work you'd either have to solder the 2 wires to an female RCA or strip the camera cable & crimp them. (I'm not sure what the 3rd wire is) I'm trying to find a premade connector w/ the RCA before proceeding.
Wiring Connector

PS - other people said they skipped a connector all together and just crimped staycons to the camera cable & plugged it right into the head unit. I'd like something a little more permanent than that to avoid issues down the road.

I'm considering the same option for my Jeep. How has this been working for you? Did you have to do anything to the 430N other than connect the camera to it?
