Default Backup Camera

Switching from a car having backup camera to Vette without one certainly needs time to get used to. Can anybody suggest a shop in Orange County that can install backup camera that can work with the OEM LCD?

It's to bad that GM doesn't think the Corvette needs a Backup Camera - I surely would like that option! They can put *** heaters in my car but not something that would help the driver!

I priced one out for my other car - between 70 and 100 bucks - but - you have to use their screen and the ones I checked couldn't hook into the GM Nav system - if there is one out there that does - please post the info

I don't know about you all, but I for one would love a FRONT IN camera as well! I wonder if anyone has rigged something for the front end somewhere on any of these units... I'm sure y'all know what I mean! Parking a Vette front in is a scary event, every time!

Are you kidding, I've grown quite accostomed to having my rear warmed on the colder mornings. I think it helps me.

this would be easy to do , just put the camera on the front lic. plate, activate it with your brake switch
