If you'd like to integrate the CFD-03E back-up camera with the MyFord Touch 8" screen radio of select 2011-up Ford vehicles, use Crux's RVCFD-79 Rear-View Integration Kit (not included).

Note: A rear-view camera provides an additional view when reversing your vehicle. It is intended to be used in conjuction with your rear- and side-view mirrors to give a fuller picture of what's behind you. It is not intended as a replacement for your mirrors.

Features

Sightline Series Rear-View Camera: The Sightline-series CFD-03E rear-view camera by Crux is specifically designed for select Ford trucks with an aftermarket in-dash multimedia or navigation receiver installed. Your aftermarket receiver must feature an integrated video monitor and a composite video camera input. With the CFD-03E, you'll be able to view what's behind you on your in-dash receiver's video monitor when you put your vehicle in reverse.

Note: The CFD-03E rear-view camera is meant as a back-up aid only; you should never solely rely on the rear-view camera when backing-up.

Vehicle Compatibility: The Sightline series CFD-03E rear-view camera is compatible with the following 2004-2014 Ford trucks (as of 1/5/2016):

  • Ford F-150: 2004-2014
  • Ford F-250: 2008-2014
  • Ford F-350: 2008-2014

Replacement Tailgate Emblem: The CFD-03E rear-view camera is integrated into a custom-designed mounting bracket. A new Ford "blue oval" logo emblem replaces the factory Ford badge on your truck's tailgate. You will need to remove the factory Ford badge and then install the CFD-03E camera/emblem assembly in place of it. The new emblem snaps firmly into the camera's mounting bracket after installation. No mounting hardware is provided, so it will be necessary to purchase hardware from a local auto parts store.

Power & Signal Connections: The CFD-03E includes a 23' composite video cable which will need to be routed through a hole in the bed behind the tailgate and up to the dash, where it connects to the aftermarket head unit. A 30" power/ground cable is supplied on the camera end to tap into power and ground at the reverse light. As an alternative, a short power/ground wire is included at the head unit end to tap into the reverse signal wire of the aftermarket radio.

Guide Line Delete: Parking guide lines are provided on the video signal to aid you in backing up the vehicle. If you do not want this feature, two unconnected white wires on the video cable should be connected together and insulated to delete the guide lines.

Specifications:

  • Resolution: 420 TV Lines
  • Pixels: 656 x 492
  • Viewing Angle: 170°
  • Minimum Illumination: 0.2 Lux
  • Shutter Speed: 1/60s-20us
  • Voltage: 12V

Im not sure. I purchased an aftermarket head unit. I am sure it will work with your factory system.
[ larry  Dec 19, 2018 ]
A
Aftermarket Navi yes, Ford no, will have to hard wire for factory Navi, not easy job
[ Michael  Dec 16, 2018 ]
A
I don't believe Crux makes an interface, but you'd need some sort of video/camera interface module as the factory radio doesn't have a composite video input for the camera.
[ Chris  Dec 15, 2018 ]
Q
Will this fit on the front grille of my 04 f150? I would love to use this as a front camera on my 4x4

A
This camera point down to my hitch, this is what I got mine for
[ Michael  Dec 16, 2018 ]
A
Check your front emblem dimensions, the camera is 9" x 3.5". If the mounting holes don't line up, double sided trim tape is an option.
[ Todd  Apr 22, 2017 ]
A
The Chrome bezel is much larger than the stock Ford emblem where it would mount to the grill. It would overhang the edges of the original Ford emblem location
