You may not need a 6V converter after all. See my post here.

Care to open up your camera to see if it's similar to the Crosstrek's?

Hey what's the fleabay auction number on that DC to Dc converter?

Type in "12v 6v converter" on fleabay. There are multiple options.

The case appears to be sealed in contrast to the camera for the Crosstrek. There are no screws or latches that would indicate that it can be easily split.

To anyone wanting the factory camera, please forgive for sounding like an a$$, but if you don't have the factory wiring in place, why waste your money on the factory camera and cut the end off it? The Rydeen MINy, once installed, looks exactly the same as the factory camera sticking out the hole in the garnish. Also, the connector fits SVXdc's harness without cutting anything off. It also does not require any kind of power converter.

Why spend more to chop something up and adapt it when you can get a good quality camera for less and have plug and play?

I purchased the rear garnish with the cut out myself. I had a concern about the plating having an exposed edge if I cut out the old garnish. Unfounded perhaps but that was my decision. Anyway, the MINy fits nicely in the recess where the camera would actually go. (Just peeking out as it would be.) I attached the camera to a piece of flat aluminum which sticks to the opening in the trunk with Velcro from the inside. If needed, I can pull it to make adjustments.

Chances are I may have gone a different route had there been wiring in the car for it already, but since there was not..............

My 2 cents.

John

edit: I should add that this is connected to a factory HU. Of course aftermarket HU's will change things.

What does this camera look like? will it fit snugly into the square OEM opening? My concern is that one, it will last longer than my fleabay camera and also that it would work with my Pioneer AVH-8400BT H.U. That is why I was opting out for the OEM camera. Also using a step down DC-DC converter to simulate the OEM H.U. input to the OEM camera. I want the OEM look on my lift gate, that is why I ordered the rear panel with the CUT-OUT already. The camera is kinda pricey, but I do not mind paying for quality, as you know it's made in JAPAN and not CHINA by CLARION. So that being said what does this camera you mentioned look like any pictures, install, website info.

I went with the MINy rather than the DUO, (which you show a pic of), mainly because there was no adjustment for angle with the DUO. Further, that happened to be the one a local dealer kept in stock. The MINy and its mounting base fits through the hole in the trunk lid. On visible inspection, it looks the same as the factory camera in my buddies '13 Outback. You can barely see it peeking out the opening.

As for fitting snugly, it's too small and fits through the hole. As I mentioned, I attached it to a piece of flat metal and used Velcro to stick the edges of the flat aluminum to the edges of the opening from the inside.

The car has been reassembled but I will try to get a couple of pics and post them. Work has been insane lately so I have not taken the time to get any. I will get some reference pics in the next couple days.

Here is the Rydeen site:
http://www.rydeenmobile.com/Backup%2...upCameras.html

The first camera on this page is the one I purchased. I works down to a lower voltage then they have advertised. (CM631UD HU is what I have.) In reality, it is probably smaller than the picture. Also, as I had noted in another post, Rydeen does not have internet sales. If a warranty is important to you, (1 year from date of purchase), then you would want to seek out a local shop to buy it from. I called their toll free number and asked for local dealers.


I can assure you that this camera, sticking out the factory opening in the garnish looks OEM. Further, my mounting solution insured that I needed to make no holes that were not there. IF there is a drawback, it may be that it does not stick out enough. I have thought about a small piece of aluminum angle bolted to the flat piece I already used and stick the camera mounting bracket to a vertical surface. That should let it peek out just a bit more. Then, OTOH, it is working just fine as it is. Just that I can be anal about getting things like this just right.

SVXdc was correct there is no need to use a 5V supply to power the OEM camera it has been verified and tested in this forum: http://xv-source.com/showthread.php?...ew-Camera-ASSY

Very interesting. I like how it appears to snap into the opening and create a seal. A very simple and effective mounting solution.

Does it have any provision for angle? It looks like it sticks out straight, which would not work out too well on a sedan. (Can't speak for the 5 door.)

News OEM camera wiring.

I am waiting for the lift gate garnish with the cutout for the camera. Once it comes in I will post pictures on the entire retrofit. My OEM Ice Silver Metallic garnish I am going to sell. I also found out that there is no need for a DC to DC converter, the camera will operate on the 13.8V that the car supplies. I need to find out which is the camera video ground? I think that it's the brown wire on the harness. The black wire should be regular ground for the circuitry of the camera.
RED +12V
BROWN video - Ground feed to H.U.
YELLOW video + Positive feed to H.U.
BLACK - Ground

News Correct Back Door Cord

Well, finally the correct back door cord assembly is this one: 81812FJ090 okay, it's not cheap! @ Heuberger Subaru it will cost you $74.44 ouch! it has the connector for the camera on it.
The camera as you already know is: 86267FJ000 and it's a whopping $234.47 double ouch!
The garnish is: 91111FJ180NN and it cost $78.05

The cost for going OEM is very expensive, but if that is what you like and don't mind paying for it, here you go.

This is the connector inside the RIGHT REAR pillar that houses the OEM camera connector. It does NOT have the wires present for the OEM camera. They will have to be added on the GRAY connector. The XV OEM harness attaches to this connector here.

This is the CAMERA connector for the OEM camera, it must be purchased seperately to ADD the OEM camera. It's on the "CORD BACK DOOR 1" harness from www.huebergersubaru.com
To some this is a little extreme to get the OEM camera installed, but I see it this way if the OEM camera fails I can always get it through the dealer and use the part number. If use an aftermarket camera there is a chance that it can be discontinued.

The "BS" part No. 81812FJ030 harness is what my car came with, the "BU" part No. 81812FJ090 is what I replaced it with. It's the XV and the 2013 Impreza 2.0i with OEM back-UP Camera harness.

Nice clean install. I am in the process of doing the same install on my 2013 Crosstrek. One question: What size pins did you use to populate the gray connector inside the right rear pilar?

Thanks
