IMID Screen reverse camera integration and a Compustar 2-way remote starter.

We just completed a reverse camera install on this 2012 Honda Civic sedan. The unique part of this install was that we interfaced the camera through the OEM Honda display screen, otherwise known as the IMID display.

The screen automatically switches over to the reverse camera image when the car is put in reverse, keeping everything neat, simple, and clean.

The client brought us the camera, which we installed, but we do carry reverse cameras of all types here at Lockdown Security as well.

We also installed a Compustar RF-2W703SH with FT-7200SCONT remote starter on this vehicle as well.

      Hello, I'm so happy that I saw your video. And I'd like to ask you: First, I have honda civic 2008 2.2 diesel i-ctdi, Can I install a backup camera on my nav screen? Can you tell me what do I need... I'm from Europe and I cannot come to you:-(. So can I know what wire do I need? Thank you very much.

      Still havent found any solutions, but i have posted a video of how i use mine, i installed front and a rear camera with a toggle switch. (I left the diagnostic screen on at all times while im driving)
      But after i posted that video i installed an after market android headunit, and wired all my cameras to the headunit.
      Now im planning on installing side cameras that will display on the imid screen.
      Hope that helps, and feel free to ask any questions.

      Why was the camera placed on the left and not in the middle?

      The handle for opening the trunk is in the middle, as are the plate lights, so we placed the cam on the left.

      Hi Doug, Civics with factory navigation CANNOT have a camera hooked up to the IMID screen. It will not auto switch on when in reverse, or when the reverse trigger wire is activated. You CAN connect the camera, but its a huge pain in the ass to view as you have to go into the IMID settings menu to turn the input on, you;d have to do this everything you wanted to view the front bumper camera, which you;d get sick of doing. Best bet: Install an LCD rear view mirror (rear view mirror with an LCD mirror in it) and run the camera to that.

      Lockdown Security I have a 2014 civic si with nav that is lowered and I want to put a camera on the front bumper so I don't smack into curbs similar to the new corvettes. I already have a back up camera that is connected to the factory nav system but I still have the IMID screen that can use a backup camera via the diagnostic menu. Is there a way to wire a camera on a switch that would use the IMID screen to display the front of the car?
