About the PAC RPA-VA1

Keep your backup cam

It's a question we get all the time — can I replace my radio and keep my factory backup cam? With adapters like PAC's RPA-VA1 video adapter, the answer is, "Absolutely!" Ideal for integrating a video-equipped aftermarket receiver into Ford and Chrysler vehicles, you'll hard-wire this adapter for power, then use the composite video connections to enable your new radio as a monitor for your OEM backup camera. Additionally, the RPA-VA1 reduces unwanted video noise by allowing you to share a ground for power with your new radio.

Product Research


Differential-To-Composite Video Adapter With Video Noise Filter: The PAC RPA-VA1 is a differential-to-composite vidoe adapter with video noise filter that helps to quickly and easily eliminate video noise from your reverse camera signal. The easy to install RPA-VA1 eliminates video noise on your reverse camera display. Specifically designed for retaining the factory reverse camera, when upgrading to an aftermarket radio. RPA-VA1 is also useful in eliminating video noise like scrolling vertical lines, in any installation.

  • The RPA-VA1 is a differential to single ended video converter. It is designed for use when installing an aftermarket radio into a vehicle that uses a differential camera.
  • The RPA-VA1 can also be used as a video noise filter in cases where the camera ground is on a different plane than the aftermarket radio, by eliminating the ground loop and fixing distortion such as horizontal lines in the video.


  • It is very important that you connect the RPA-VA1 ground wire to the aftermarket radio's ground wire. These two components sharing the same ground is critical to the noise filter feature.
  • The video input connector has two independent wires for when you are connecting to a factory reverse camera. The RCA end can be cut off and the harness wires connected directly to the vehicle.

Will this work for pioneer 4200nex to headrest monitor? Video output on nex has horrible ground noise. No noise on speakers just output to headrest.

You will want to contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat to discuss compatibility with your factory system. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and see if this will integrate. If it does not, then they will also be able to discuss other options with you.

Will this work on a 2014 dodge ram 1500?

This adapter will not work in your 2014 Ram 1500 pickup. We do have a couple parts that can keep the backup camera working with aftermarket radios. I recommend contacting an advisor by calling 1-800-324-9695 to get a personal recommendation on the parts needed for the radio being installed into the pickup
