Default Mopar backup camera enable

Hey Guys,

I installed the Mopar Backup camera.
Is there any way to activate it myself?
You would think it would be in the radio? It's not in the (SEEK+ SEEK- MENU) menus.....

Seems a waste to give $ to the dealer!

I believe the OEM reverse camera is only activated when in reverse.

If you installed it yourself then you have to take it to the dealer regardless so they can flash your truck to recognize the camera and use it.

As said above it will only take over the radio in reverse.

Yeah, first thing I tried was reverse!

Remember the days when you'd put power to something, make sure it was grounded and it just worked????

Dealership next week I guess!

Default Back up cam

Yeah i just had mine put in and the dealer has to flash the radio so it will recognize it. After you do that once you put it in reverse it will show up on the radio and it is great. Glad i did it!

Dealer did it - only cost me 19.99 + tx!!
Thought they'd charge me like 60 bucks or something stupid.
Works great.
I do have those backup guide lines on the screen. I've seen other posts about that - no biggie for me.

Can't wait for camping again next year to see how easy it will be to hitch up!

My truck didnt have the Mygig radio when I bought it. I got one from Ebay along with a rear camera and a device called a LOCK PICK. I installed everything myself and all works great. The LOCK PICK unlocks all the fuctions that are locked from the factory. So I can shift into reverse and the camera will come on automaticly, but I can also turn the feature off if I want by using the telephone button three times. Cool features about the LOCK PICK is I can turn the camera on when in drive which I found is usefull when I am pulling my boat or trailer to keep an eye on them. I can also watch a movie when driving and operate the GPS which would normaly be locked out unless in park.

^^^^ Course were not suppose to watch a movie when were driving I did a similar upgrade and also have a front camera working. The lock pick totally opens up the functionality to have the front/rear camera on whenever you want as well as play a movie while driving (for your passangers enjoyment)

I'm going to have to look into that Lock Pick thing. There are times when I'd like to have my rear camera on while in Drive...

I've got a BakFlip VP and I had it up yesterday to haul a bunch of leaves to the compost. It sure would have been nice to have the rear camera on to supplement my side mirrors! Seems like that should be an option? Guess I'll have to look into the Lockpick.

Thanks!
Mike
