Hello FordEngineer. I have just purchased a 2011 GT500 but since it's essentially a 2011 Mustang, I was hoping you could help me. I wanted to order the car with a backup camera but it doesn't come as a factory option. I was wondering what I would need to do to get a camera installed and hooked up to the SYNC head unit. What I was HOPING I could do was buy an aftermarket patch cable that plugs into the back of the unit which allows a video input and then wire an aftermarket camera to that video input and then bring my car to a FORD/Shelby dealer and have them flash the Sync firmware to enable stock rear camera functionality. I was wondering if you could clarify the feasibility of this and if there is anything specific I should tell the mechanic / audiovideo guy to get them to enable that feature.
I have read that other users with F150s have had their Syncs (without backup cameras) flashed with the "as-built" data of another car WITH the backup camera which was pulled from Oasis and it enabled the car to use the camera as if it was an ordered feature. The issue I'm wondering about is if it would be possible to flash my GT500 with the Nav system with the data from a Mustang GT with Nav AND the camera to get that feature...
Will the nav operate correctly in my GT500 if it is programmed for a Mustang GT?
Thanks...It's a complicated request but hopefully I was clear.
