      Back up camera or beeper?

      2013 s60. Has anyone ever added a backup camera or beeper to a Volvo that is not factory equipped? Wife could use some backing up assistance.

      Seems as simple as punching holes in the bumper, adding the wiring harness and installing software. Camera probably a little easier but same thing. In the next year I am going to add adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist and such to my 2012 S60. It’s a lot of modules and software, but doable. I plan on getting a real vida license for 3 days to install all the necessary software.

      There is a video on YouTube of someone installing a camera in their XC60. Seems like a pretty straightforward but time intensive job and will run you like $500 for the parts from wherever he got it (VolvoTech or something like that).

      Sensors would be a lot less expensive and probably less work overall since you don’t have to take apart the dash to plug in the camera adapter behind the head unit. For this you’d be drilling out the holes and tapping into your reverse light wire. I’ve thought about this for my XC60 but haven’t gotten to it yet.
