Features

GM Backup Camera Harness: The BACKUPCAM-3 harness is designed specifically for GMLAN29 vehicles that have a factory (OEM) installed back-up camera and displays its back-up image on the factory head unit's monitor. The BACKUPCAM-3 harness lets you retain your GM vehicle's factory back-up camera so it can be viewed through your newly installed aftermarket head unit.

Note: If your vehicle's factory backup camera image is displayed in the rear-view mirror, then you will not need this harness. The factory backup camera's image will continue to display on the rear-view mirror and cannot be integrated into an aftermarket head unit's display.

I have a 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500hd LTZ with the mylink 8" screen. I bought an add on camera interface with a RCA input for a rear camera. Can I use this adaptor with my factory tailgate reverse camera instead of running new wires and new camera to the rear of the truck?
