Would you mind educating me? Any other pointers you would offer after going through it. Finally, how's the camera working? Happy with it?

First, the rear camera was a major add-on that I was very disappointed I could not get with my 14' model Altitude at the time. The camera kit was discontinued for some reason or another and I have been waiting months for it to return. Once installed it works very well and the image is crisp/clear/wide. Seeing the reverse camera on the 8.4" screen is awesome.
Now, regarding the wiring, I made a thread describing the dealer install and then what I had to do to correct the steering wheel controls issue. The video from YouTube is very detailed and I am grateful to find that persons impressive walk-thru. Basically, the Mopar instructions incorrectly state to remove the factory wire from the pin location of the harness and replace it with the camera harness wire. The correct solution is to splice into the factory wire and attach the camera harness wire to it. If the factory wire is removed like the instructions state, then the steering controls will be impeded.
