I have not added the factory camera to my truck. However, I did ask the service deptartment about activating it so I could add camera, and they said it was a hardware install and it should work after being installed.. That said, I'm not sure I believe them.

Before I swapped radios, I installed an aftermarket camera in the factory position, and wired it into a rear view mirror with a monitor in it. It seems like a better option as far as ergonomically for me at least. My wife's Durango has the factory camera hooked up to the RHR radio, and I can't get used to looking at it rather than the mirror locatoin. I was contemplating adding another camera to the back at license plate level which would be hooked to the radio, but havent' figured out that wiring yet.
