I like the way this is going. I was hoping to find a solution to hook up a second camera on the back of my RV and be able to switch back and forth based on if I was towing it at the time. I think this will work for that once it can be figured out.
Honestly, this is all I'm trying to do. Provide an option at a very reasonable price.

I've been waiting to see when the parts listings update to include the Wrangler trail camera option. Hopefully that will at least give a better idea of how the video processor gets mounted and possibly some more adapters. I really want to take the first step and buy the front camera module soon.

In addition, I've been seeing rumors of the new UCONNECT v5 coming out, which is a total redesign and a shift to running on the Android platform. I'm really tempted to just wait for the (hopefully) 2022 models to get updated, see what they are using for cameras, and do a full upgrade of head unit and all at that point. But that will be $$$ for sure.

I finally came to a realization as we where working through this process... that the uConnect radios, as nice as they are, have their flaws. Cheap and easy alternatives have become available. All told, I spent $389 and have a perfectly functioning head unit, rear camera, and front camera. Nearly all of the original features where retained, and it can do so much more.

Any updates on this? I have a 2021 Wrangler with the 7" screen and would love to get a front facing cameras.

They never responded, so I never bought it. I just got the Tazer and his camera hook up.

which camera hook up? There was a promising link sent for multiple cameras, but, it seems to be perpetually out of stock. I found another option for multiple cameras, but, I am currently developing it. One camera would be very in-expensive but, would like to know how much interest there would be for doing the R&D on it.

The Z-Automotive camera connection and power cables. I didn’t want the camera in the grill, so I got a different camera.
I really would like one with the moving lines, but not enough to buy a new Jeep for. If that could be done I would definitely be interested.
