Backup Camera Question

Anyone have any experience with either of these models? I like the idea of not having to go to the dealership and drop a C-note to have the radio flashed.

Raxiom Factory GPS Rear Back-up Camera

FACTORY GPS REAR BACK-UP CAMERA KIT

You can get a app on your phone called JScan and a Bluetooth adopter to turn on the back up camera function on. Also the JScan program does more than just the back up camera function.

JScan program = $21.00

http://jscan.net/

Bluetooth adopter = $30.00
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06XGB4873..._xQdjDbJ3B5Q93

Many different camera's on Amazon for $15 - $20

The mount = $49.99

https://www.quadratec.com/p/quadrate...meras-lighting

Radio adopter $19.95
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06XYSMB7N..._pZdjDbETB7ET9


All in total it would be around $141.00 to build it on your own kit. If you can fab your own mount it would be under $100.00

Yes, I had a Lockpic at first but when I changed my battery out it damaged the lockpic. I wasn't willing to pay for another $200ish lockpic. So I went this route and it worked great.

I did almost those exact steps when I added a backup camera to my jku. It is quite easy and can be done relatively inexpensively by building your own “kit”

Since both of you have done this I may have a few questions, first is about camera angles. I've seen 139-deg, 149-deg, and 170-deg. Of course, all of them tout reasons why theirs is the best. What are your thoughts having installed one.

I have a 149-deg camera on mine. It works well for my needs.

Also I have a camera mount I'm no longer using, if you want it you can have it. Just need your address for shipping it to you. I'll have to look at the camera that with it ( I might have cut the wires.) Let me know, I'll pull it off and snap a photo of it for you.

Any idea if the 179 works well, or is it too wide?

Mine is 170 and I like it. I picked up mine from amazon.

Okay, I got everything in today, have a question. Noticed that the wiring requires connecting to the backup light so that the camera comes on when the Jeep goes into reverse. Some vehicles notice the voltage drop and signal an error if this is done, does Jeep do this? If so, is there a workaround?
