Default Back Up Camera or Radar

Hey guys,

I'm in need of some sort of rear bumper protection.

I have the MyGig system. If I get a back up camera do I need an unlock tool to use the two together?

The rear bumper radar systems seem pretty cheap, but I hate the indicators that have to be mounted. I would rather have the sound (beeps) only.

Does anyone have any advice or direction for me?

Thanks!

If you want to use a camera, the factory one hooks into the MyGig without an unlock tool. ( the dealer has to turn on the function). If you go with an aftermarket camera, you need to get a lockpick from somewhere. I got one from nav-tv. It also gave me more functions than just a back up camera.

So, if I call the dealer I can have a camera installed? That doesn't sound cheap...

its not cheap but, its worth it, i had it done to my 2009
my Ram didn't come with a locking tailgate, it was built in late 2008, because the camera mounts in the tailgate handle, i had to buy the handle with the locking tailgate & camera, all the locking parts that fit inside the tailgate, etc
[IMG] Uploaded with ImageShack.us[/IMG]

there are 3 different tailgate handles,
handle with nothing extra
handle with just the lock
handle with the lock & camera

now no one can steal my tailgate for scrap or anything else & they can't remove my tail lights either
the best thing about the camera is the night vision is so clear

Install should be 3 hours labor at the dealer. I just had it done today.

Just do the install yourself. I payed about $30 for the dealer to activate once installed.

Does the camera see the whole back end, or just the area directly in front of the lens and tow hitch?
