Aftermarket Camera REC Head Unit Input!
 
First thing's first... this harness is EXPERIMENTAL!!!

I will have feedback in a few days. If it works, like I think it will, it's GAME ON!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Yep... you read that right!

Ever consider switching to an aftermarket camera for your Jeep, but found out you're limited by the RCA connector on the camera... leaving you with no way to connect it to your radio? Well, I've come up with a solution for the aftermarket camera woes...

Thanks to an inquiry by a forum member, I ducked into my secret lair and came out with the solution...

It's the LXHarness Universal Camera Harness!!!

LXHarness... keeping your REC unit relevant :)

Please note, this is only available for the Jeep platforms with CAMERA ENABLE on the REC head unit. Though this radio will work in other platforms, the CABINID is what enables the video functionality. No Jeep... no video enable. I'm not familiar with how the LockPick works, but I'm sure it has it's own video input harness...

i hope it works. when i bought an rec a few years ago the camera function was blacked out. once i installed the lockpick the option was accessible. if this works it will be a top seller lol because it will save people from dealer activation! you are the man bob!

lol that would be funny

Well I'm sad to report that version 1.0 has failed, no go no matter what I did, I drove it, pull the battery cable for 15 mins to reset the system. Even connected my old gps to make sure the cam was still working.
Bob let's brainstorm this one out

as soon as you can get that camera option in the menu to show up then the cable should work.
