    Attached is the link to it I've seen YouTube vids seems legit. Has anyone had experience with this product? It's sounds like it's about to take some of my birthday money I received yesterday . Lmk what you all think.

    Stock head unit doesn't have composite input like aftermarket ones do. So you'll have to tap into the rear view camera feed. Not impossible, but you'll need to look at threads talking about dual camera feeds to see how to wire it all up.
    Apart from that, the resolution of the camera fees probably between 520 & 600, so don't expect to get great picture quality.

    My first thought is that it looks and is priced like other no name Chinese junk and while neat it wont last. Picture will not be great and with inability to control it seems like you would be better off getting a Hondo Garage mount for your phone or tablet when you really need to use the feature.

    That's what had me skeptacle. Idk after I rebuild my motor in my bike I'll be thinking about the legit swap. I just am not a fan of having it plugged in. If only they made a relay that makes your car think it's for ever in park that's airplay/Bluetooth capable. That would be the ticket.

    BUT! Although i just remembered when I fully redid my system in my truck I did a 7 Chanel high def audio processor. So I'm kind of curious if I can tap into that. It's got dual jl tw5s jl 6x9 tweets jl c5 speakers Rockford fosgate power series amp 400wrms 4chanel and a alpine 1200rms 2 chanel running through that processor. So now if I was a low voltage genius I would know if that'll work but that's all relying on hopes and dreams.
