Hello, I have a 2007 US version Commander with REC
navigation and am looking to upgrade the head-unit but leave Boston Acoustics amp, speakers and VES intact.
I have read countless of forum posts and information over the internet and have already bought:
• PAC C2R-CHY4
] -- to connect the aftermarket radio to Jeep connectors
• PAC SWI-CP5
] -- to accomodate and program steering wheel controls
• Metra 40-CR10
] -- to connect the existing FM antenna
I am fairly sure I can work our the details of the above stuff and connect it using various manuals and color coded wires. However, I am still getting my head around connecting the existing backup (reverse) camera. I am absolutely not sure what and where to connect.
My Jeep is a 2007 version, so the backup camera uses a 3-pin C3 radio connector (see here
). The connector contains cam return
, cam signal
and cam shield
wires (see scheme here
). Aftermarket headunits usually have a cinch (RCA) connector.
My questions are:
1) Will just somehow connecting the 3 wires to a 2-wire RCA plug work? Will the camera image initiate once I shift to Reverse?
2) Or do I need to connect some other wires, such as Reverse output from a CAN connector, or something like that?
I have also checked the PAC CHYRVD
as it was mentioned in one of the manuals, but it doesn't seem to be compatible with Commander.
Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
