WK Backup Camera (upgrade)

I have a camera in my '10 WK S Limited, but wondering if you can upgrade to a newer (better) camera?

I like the guide lines in the newer system, but not sure of that is the camera or software in the head unit? Also, my camera sucks in the dark, it tends to flip between color and monochrome which is weird (and annoying).

TIA

Re: WK Backup Camera (upgrade)

Good call! I would love to change mine too. I am used to a much better resolution camera than the stock camera and would love to change mine as well. Guess I will need to take a few things apart and eye ball it to replace it. I suspect the key will be finding a replacement which will mount in the existing area easily as the wiring is pretty universal.

I put a reverse camera in my 05, and rather than getting one that switches between color and IR, I just got a decent color camera and put an LED reverse lamp just starboard of the hitch receiver (after trimming some plastic). Now I can see well at any time. I recommend it.
