Backup Camera For 2013 Challengers

For the last few days, I have read a lot of threads on this and other forums regarding the installation of backup cameras on Challengers. Some refer to using the lockpic setup, some refer to dealer installations. But I saw a thread where a user who apparently works at a dealership was having trouble activating the camera on a 2012 Challenger. And I have seen no mention of trying it on a 2013. The website for the lockpic shows different year ranges for different cars but no mention of 2013 Challengers.

My 2013 has the U430N system. Does anyone have a definitive answer as to whether a backup camera can be made to work with the 2013 U430N? And if so, which system?

A factory engineer finally got mine working on my 2011. 2011 seems to be hit and miss. I don't think anyone has been successful with a 12 or 13. The process of getting the option code in the configuration seems to be flawed.

Luke, I understand that a factory option does not seem available for the 2012 & 2013 radios but was wondering if the aftermarket world would be the way to go for these users. I just installed an Nav-TV on my 2011 RBZ and from what I can see it should work on the newer radios. I would also guess the Lockpick units would work as well.

Quick check on the Nav-TV website shows the AllGIG XG-FT is compatible with the 2013 radios
http://navtv.com/product/175/allgig-xg-ft.html

From the Lockpick website...
"We have created the Lockpick to be universally applicable to
all models and vehicles compatible to the MYGIG radio from 2007-2011."


There is a fine line between "Hobby" and "Mental Illness." Some of us may have crossed the line.

Mods:
Functional hood scoop, DRL's enabled, Charger intake tube, Solo Mach X cat-back exhaust, Diablo InTune, SX catch can, Sequential taillights, Pistol Grip shifter, Custom smoothed intake manifold, Custom built covers for coolant tank, fuse box, valve covers, and ABS.

I was not aware of the NavTV product. You are right, they do specifically mention the 2013 Challenger. Thanks for the link.

Lockpick on my 2012 730 doesn't work well. Camera works as advertised but the 12 has one less cable then the lockpick harness wants and so override functions never wrk and often the car is driving backward and won't navigate etc.

I really love the back up camera does the nav-tv av harness work the back up camera on the 730? Does it need the module too? Looks like you end up with an additional plug again the 12 730 doesn't want.

Hmm, that sucks, I was getting ready to order the lockpic!

I too would love to see this capability in 2013's. In lieu of that can any of you 2013 owners out there comment on the effectiveness of the latest version of the ParkSense rear park assist system?

The ParkSense seems to function properly. I didnít realize that this car is like driving an armored HUMV until I got it home and was trying to back it into my garage. With the ParkSense I just take it nice and slow to allow it time to detect the objects and relay the info back to me through the EVIC. The EVIC displays which side of the bumper it detects objects on. I think it was a worthy and much needed addition to this car.

I have recently purchased navtool back-up camera for my 2013 challenger, I was first offered the option at the dealership, but dealer quoted me sky high price. So I went online and did my research, found company called navtool, I was pretty amazed to learn that all of their products made in USA, so I purchased one camera interface plus i purchased alpine rear camera of ebay and installed it my all my self over a weekend. Works like a charm every time i put my vehicle in to reverse

P.S. site doesn't go up to 2013 but I can confirm it works perfectly on my 2013
