Possible to view rear backup camera in drive.

Hi all,
I was using a utility trailer and thought it would be great to view the rear backup camera to check the load and straps while driving.
I couldn't find anything in the manual.
Just wondering if this is possible.

Thanks for any help.

You didn't state which radio you've got, but assuming it's the RA4 system I don't believe it's possible unless you install an aftermarket device such as this: LOCKPICK C8.

Re: Possible to view rear backup camera in drive.

I am going to have to lean on an yes answer but... Will this LOCKPICK C8 void the warranty? The only interesting feature (and something Auto manufactures should imclude) is the ability to allow the passenger to work the NAV system manually.

Could just try putting power to the backup camera and see what happens.

Mine is not factory (nor is the tablet) but the monitor on mine turns on whenever the camera gets power.
