How are you boys going on this project? Lol.

I just installed it with two generic switches. Also added signal light behind my standard mirror and added the super bright cre LEDs. Here are some pics.

randomwalk would you mind explaining in a little detail on what you did for the forward camera install? I have the backup camera in the mirror but I have the exact same head unit as you and would very much like to have the forward facing camera. You think its something that an electrical noob could handle as a weekend project?

Yes you can do it. The forward camera output plugs into the video input port. Plug and play

Thanks I figured getting the signal to the nav unit wouldn't be too difficult my main concern is being able to uses toggle switch to override whatever is on the screen to bring the camera up... I don't want to have to select the video imput every time I want to see the camera

I just came across this link. Here is my set up, tapped into the mirror camera and added a front camera. Put a toggle switch to go back and forth while driving.

You guys look like you got it figured out!

FourG does your camera still automatically work when going into reverse or do you have to manually turn it on?

We're effectively looking for a three position option.

Front Always On
Back on in Reverse
Back Always On

Yes, when I shift into reverse, both the mirror and head unit reverse camera comes on.

Yep. Put in reverse, overhead and navi display auto comes on. Flip a switch will auto switch to rear cam as well (anytime). Flip the other switch will turn on front camera.

ordered a camera a couple days ago so I'll be attempting this install here in the next couple days! what three position toggle switches did you guys end up using? I picked one up at home depots but I'm looking for something with a little more factory look.

There are several on this thread that have a more own look... None that are true oem though.

See we're looking to use just the mirror, I think we've all agreed how easy a nav unit would be lol!

Maybe I'll just bite the bullet and get a nav unit...

Anyone know if the JBL Nav unit can accept two camera inputs or if the homelink mirror is prewired to accept the rear camera input. My rear camera is currently wired into the nav system.

I was thinking I could run the front into the mirror or at worst I could wire in a three position switch for rear on, front on or rear when in reverse.

Any input greatly appreciated. I looked for a sticky and searched for the answer with no luck.

Thanks in advance.

Next weekend I'm going to attempt to build a box to to allow a DPDT switch to power the cameras and act as a selector for video input to nav system. Plan is to include both a front and rear camera. Up position will be front on, rear will be rear on and center (off) will be normal operation. Plan to only use one switch.

I'll post pics of the outcome.

Expl- are you located anywhere near va beach? Maybe we can tackle this together. I've been wanting to do a toggled on rear cam to go along with standard reverse. Stoked I found this thread but no idea how to tie it all in. Plus reading through the posts I'm convinced I need a front cam now. Looking forward to more postings and what you came up with
