Default After market backup camera

Has anyone purchased/used an after market tailgate camera? Particularly this one:

http://www.amazon.com/170D-TLGT-CMOS...ailgate+Handle

I have the power lock tailgate. So IN THEORY all I need is the wiring harness, this camera, and bring it to the dealer to flash. Or is that wishful thinking? All opinions asked for. Thanks.

Unless something has changed I was told that you can add the camera but it won't show up on the radio screen unless it came from the factory that way. They told me they would have to install a new rear view mirror with a video monitor in it.

I think as of March it has. No dealers had info on these cameras because of parts restrictions. So when they looked them up on their systems nothing came up because they weren't available as buy alone parts. Also, it is easier if you have the power locking tailgate since the power harness is already there.

I could be wrong and if anyone has more info on this chime in please.

Why not just buy the Audiovox camera and drill the oem handle?

My dealership is going to add mine rear view cam after the fact in the tailgate.

I have a sport with the power locking tailgate as well.

That's good news. I ordered the backup cam but I would have hated having the video coming from my rear view mirror like on the f150s. It's just to small of a screen.
