So today I went to my BMW dealership to drop of my car for maintenance, in the parking lot there was a guy installing rear view camera, I have the navigation and always wanted to get a camera but when I purchased my BMW sales person told me if I don’t get the option at point of purchase there is no way to add it later. So I approached the guy and just asked him a few question so he was nice to answer my questions and at the same time told me not to get it from the dealership because I will pay 5 times what I would normally pay.
He told me that I can install any style camera that I can find and will suit my style, but he said that I must get some sort of video interface so that camera can be connected to my navigating screen, he said that this dealership only allows one brand called navtool
I went online and read some stuff, the biggest surprise was that interface was actually made in USA
I basically found this to suite my car BMW X5 SERIES 2010 NAVIGATION VIDEO INTERFACE
But after some more research and being I didn’t want to pay this much I found this BMW NAVIGATION VIDEO INTERFACE
Because its only available this weekend I send few emails got quick reply and ordered it, as I didn’t want to miss out on the great price.
I basically want to know what kind of experience anyone has with it?
Where should I take to get it installed?
Can anyone recommend good back up camera?
