      Aftermarket Back Up Camera

      Has anyone installed a back up camera on their C30? I realize there is no screen to utilize, so I would assume its going to be the kind that uses an aftermarket rear view mirror.

      [email protected] had one in his C30 that used and app on the smartphone to work. I find I don't need a backup cam with how small the car is but technically I could use my rear facing dash cam and smart phone for this.

      I have a S40 but same idea - previous owner put in a double din aftermarket stereo, big touchscreen and a backup camera. It's doable but make sure you do it right.

      I want to try to stay away from using an app on my phone to view the camera.

      I'm just the opposite--don't want to wire in a backup camera and would prefer a BT unit with the phone. Most options I've looked at are hit or miss, at best though. I've settled for backing up in my C30 The Old Fashioned Way.

      I used the Pearl Auto wireless setup. The company is no longer in business but I recall other options available these days.
