Default My Retrofit Camera

Got a great deal on my 2009 Laramie, but it did not have the rear camera that is so handy when hitching/towing. Due to all the delays with the OEM cameras being backordered, I went ahead and went with something else. I purchased the allgig from nav-tv (let's you watch DVD's and work navigation while moving, and input camera) and the a CCD camera from a seller on ebay. The resolution on these CCD cameras is just plain awesome, day or night. Install was pretty easy and only took a couple of hours. I took the handle out and made the hole with a Dremel tool. I put it where the keyhole would go, since I don't have a locking tailgate, but can also be installed to the left of the handle. Bottom line, this is something that can be done easily, faster and cheaper than waiting for the dealer to get the camera and do the install. Just another option for those wanting to do this.

Here are some pictures:

Good place, I would never have thought to place it there. It angles just right also.

I hooked it up to my factory mygig. All you need is the all-gig module which is sold by nav-tv. This module gives you the output needed for the camera and let's you play DVD's and play with your navigation while your car is in motion. The family loves it.
As for the angle, it's perfect.

I'm looking at doing the same thing. How long was the camera that you bought? I see lots on eBay that are 2 - 2 1/2 " long. Will that fit in the handle or do you need something really short?

Thanks
