I am interested in installing a rear view camera in my R171. I have a pioneer AVIC 7000 NEC unit installed in the car. My question is: Has anyone performed this installation? I am interested in how to run the video cable to the head unit and where to connect the wiring in the trunk.

if you want to be lazy, you can ways get the wireless one so you don't have to route the wire from the back to the front of your car, but I did use the wire one since it's not that hard, you can go under the carpet

I used a wireless one so as not to have to put too many wires in the loom that goes from the trunk to the lid ( a known trouble point ) , but I still needed to run one cable from the trunk to the head unit to activate the auto reverse screen ...

The reverse camera needs to be connected to the reverse wire on one of the rear tail lights , it's the first or second wire in the connector from the top , best to use a voltmeter to check which wire you need , when checking you need to leave the connector , connected to the light , otherwise you won't get a proper reading , due to the canbus system .

There's plenty of posts on here detailing the route for the wiring and how to remove the necessary panels ..

I'll see if I can dig out some links later ..

p.s. When looking into your rear view mirror if things start to look like they are getting smaller its ok that normal .
