Default wireless cams to aftermarket Nav unit?

I want to install wireless cameras, front and back, to a Pioneer or Kenwood head unit w/nav that has 2 camera inputs.
I asked Crutchfield and they said: "There are no wireless cameras out there yet that will hook up with a receiver, only to your phone or a separate display"
Can this be right?
I was also hoping to use the smallest wired cameras and convert them to wireless with the inexpensive converters I see online.
Thanks to you experts out there. Michael

I have a pioneer head unit on my car and I installed a backup camera along with one of those wireless transmitters from amazon that are like 8 bucks. It works fine and I didn't have to worry about running wires all thru the car.

They are correct in that there are no wireless cameras that will hook up to a receiver as far as I know but you CAN use a wireless video transmitter and make any camera wireless.

So just to be clear: I can use the wireless transmitters to connect a wired camera to the back up camera input on the Pioneer HU?

Thanks!

This is what you need:
Amazon Amazon


You need the wireless transmitter to connect and power the camera, and the wireless receiver that will plug into your HU.

Great idea, thank you for this. I am about to do the same on mine but I am hoping to have wireless front and back cameras. Does your wireless unit have an A-B switch so they do not cross talk, or would two of these be on the same frequency? Which one did you buy? Thanks
