Retrofit rear camera

Postby sportbrake » Tue Nov 20, 2018 2:21 pm

Is it possible to retrofit a reversing camera to operate through the InControl Pro screen on my 2017MY F Pace? Grateful for advice please. Thank you.

With apologies for sounding negative as well as being ignorant about the F-Pace specifically, it has become incredibly difficult to add electronic features to modern cars. To protect the increasing volume of onboard electronics, manufacturers now reserve to themselves the power to alter car systems. Even dealers are heavily restricted compared with just a few years ago. For example, Jaguar dealers can no longer upgrade mirrors to fold if folding mirrors were not originally specified. Hence, if it were me, I would be looking to buy a stand-alone (only needs a 12V supply) reversing camera rather than an integrated camera kit. I'd hazard a guess it's just possible a kit which connects to your phone could also be made to mirror its picture to the car's screen. If you find such a kit, I'm sure others will be interested. Mike.
