I meant to document my install but forgot. So if you take the cover off the back of the tail gate you'll see the camera held in by two t15's (I think). take out small plug and cut end off. Leave some on the connector side incase you want to put it back (pointless imo). Should see 4 wires and a shield. keyed 12v, Ground, video + -. Use meter too figure out which is which. Wire in power and ground. Cut RCA that comes with camera and Wire yellow + and black - to vehicle. Sorry Im being vague. Ill check tomorrow confirm wire colors.
is correct, for many this is a serious issue that you may have a great solution for.
I would suggest that you download the Upfitter Manual for your truck. There is a link to it at the Electrical Forum, in one of the stickied threads. Then you shouldn't have to guess wire colors. I would still confirm as you did with meter, but always nice to have a double check.
Do you lose the yellow and red guide lines that are shown on the screen?
Guidelines are nice, they are a product of the Mylink interfacing with the electric power steering for an angle of steering wheels and overlaying on the camera picture. I would suspect they are still there, but how well they relate to the truck may be suspect. Probably not a big deal, as I think the factory setup requires the driver to be calibrated to understand the positional relationship, just re-calibrate the driver. Humans make great "robots" because we are so adaptable.
I would be interested in two other questions:
1. How does this setup perform in low light conditions and high light (blinding sun) conditions?
2. Does this setup change the field of view significantly? Do you see a broader width or narrower width view?
Finally, can you give us some cellphone pictures of the screen, probably with the steering straight, and with steering wheel all the way right or left?
If this is as great as you suggest, there are probably a few owners who would also need your mailing address to express their gratitude or maybe even where they could meet you to buy you a beer.
