Plug your camera's composite video cable into the HRN-CAMCH, which plugs into the vehicle-specific input on the back of your Wrangler's radio, and you've got video on your factory screen.

Couldn't be simpler

Crutchfield customer from Prior Lake, MN on 5/20/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Couldn't be simpler or more effective/price effective. I installed in two cars. Both were Wranglers one with a 430 Radio, and one with a 430N radio. Basically just plugs in a port in the back of the unit. The port was unused in my radio, but I think might be used if something like a in car entertainment system is there (unlikely in a jeep). But easy to tell if it exists in a jeep. I think there was 2 pieces of trim to remove (with about 4 screws and some snaps), and then 4 screws in the radio and it slips right out. Couldn't be simpler. On the wrangler at least you either need to pay the dealer some money to turn on the camera function (but this does automatically know when your car goes in reverse, and switches the display on) or you can buy things like and ODB Genie to do it yourself. Some dealers might play a game with the price, but you shouldn't be charged less than 30 minutes of labor to do it. It only takes 10.....maybe $75 tops?? Mine just did it while I was there for other service.

I used this pluf along with a basic lockpick To install a backup camera in my 2014 JK Wrangler without needing to have the dealership flash it. It was less expensive than buying the more expensive lockpick with backup camera option.

I found about this reading the wrangler forum. Ordered with a license plate camera. I now have a great backup camera. Had to pay dealership to enable. More than the cost of both pieces of hardware.

Works as intended

Donald from Waxhaw, NC on 5/14/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This worked to enable the backup camera on my 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. The harness enabled the factory head unit to connect with an Alpine after market backup camera. In my case to make the backup camera work I also had to have the dealer enable the factory radio screen as the backup monitor. I am happy with the results.

Pros:

Cons: None

Worked very well

Fiona from New Jersey on 4/15/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This worked to enable the backup camera on my son's 2013 Chrysler 200. The harness allowed the CONNECT 730N RHR radio head unit to connect with an after market backup camera. In our case to make the backup camera work we also had to have the dealer enable the factory radio screen as the backup monitor. We are very happy with the results.

Pros: Worked, installed easily, reasonable price.

Cons: None so far.

Notes:

I've looked over all the information we have on it as well as Alpine's site but cannot find anything stating this will work in your 2014 Dodge Challenger. I do not expect it will work By Bio: https://www.crutchfield.com/bio/Paul

I'm sorry I don't have the answer to this, I'd say call Crutchfield and ask them or Alpine themselves, or the manufacturer of the radio. I don't want to say it would just because it worked on my 430n radio on my 2016 Jeep wrangler, not sure how different the radios are.
[ Jose  Apr 16, 2019 ]

I needed this for my 2015 Jeep Wrangler. I also had to get a device to program the radio to allow for camera to work. I found OBD Genie and ordered one there and it worked very simply. Overall happy with the back up camera system.
