Can anyone advise if an OEM backup camera is compatible with a Garmin BC30 wireless sender? I have a Garmin DriveAssist sytem with a wireless back up camera however I would like use an OEM Cruze backup camera instead of the number plate mounted unit. Any assistance will be appreciated.

It should just have 2 wires for video. A signal and a ground (not the same ground used for everything else). You should just be able to terminate that to an RCA.

If it has 3 or 4 for video you can maybe terminate it to S Video (and buy an adapter if you need RCA).

If it has any obvious twisted pairs, that would be... Interesting...

You will need the camera and the manual (so you dont need to guess what wire does what). You should be able to bench test it with a 12v power supply and an old tv (dont test on a nice tv). Don't burn down the house eitheir. Your looking at $120-$150 just to see if it works (camera, voltmeter, power supply, 3 day sub to manual). After that you will need the trim pieces to install the camera (another $100, $200, I'm not sure). Then just plug the camera into the harness and do your splicing at the front near the head unit.

It's never been done before, but it is very possible.
