Like to install a backup camera but hope it can hook to existing head monitor, like this one:

My original head unit didn't have Navigation or Backup camera, nor any fancy functions like Bluetooth, just the original one.

Is it possible to wire the camera into this head unit?

Also like to know if hooking a camera is the best way, or better off getting a complete camera suite including a screen (mirror).

Thanks.

1) take a closer look at your "head unit" - and count how many pixels you have. I haven't counted, but my guess is around 200-300px across.
2) so... how do you like camera showing something in VGA resolution (even if you know what is VGA - 320x200px :DDD
3) originally - I think - there was screen in mirror for rear view camera - which might be simplest way.

avk, depends on wiring - is it present in all Tribecas, even if you don't have backup camera from factory?

well... on some cars - wiring is present either with or without equipment, on bmw (iirc) there was multiple "levels" of wiring - cheap ass and rich people.
about Tribecas - idk :D

I believe there might have been some talk about retrofitting factory navigation, and the conclusion was that the instrument panel harness was different on the high-end model. My own evidence of this is that I didn't see extra plugs behind the audio unit when adding auxiliary input.

btw, you can buy some wifi camera and add some old phone to anywhere you want with duct tape or something :D (no need for a lot of wires :D
