This is a little different then what the people here
are trying to accomplish, but is actually easier. We have to wait for a company to make an aftermarket video input for it. My guess is that the first company will be PAC. Once they make a video in for the base model touch screen, we can hook the camera right up
Exactly. Its not hard. Just need to tap the wires on their way to the head unit, and split them off and manually force them to connect to mirror or vice versa. I'm thinking that the camera image signal is being sent to both, but what it being changed it the reverse trigger that tells the screens to turn on/off. If thats all it is, then we just tap the reverse wire and run it to the camera or radio respectively. Its going to be simple. Just need something with the right tools and knowledge (which I have) and who also has a 2012+ to work on (which I dont).
Has anyone pulled a base model touch screen to confirm whether or not there is already a video input?
