In that case it may work out for you, only thing is the image will be reversed with an aftermarket camera.

Any updates on this?

I have a 2013 SL but no cameras. I would really like the reverse camera. I am still unclear if the wiring is somewhere in my car I can get to if I buy the camera and rear hatch handle to mount it to if this would be easy to get working. I really don't want to have to take out the nav screen and pull pins out o connectors.

I was rear ended and bought the harness and stock camera wires etc online to give to the body shop to install. I also have a 2013 SL and he had to wire everything from the camera to the nav unit.

I have read through all the thread, however people who installed an OEM camera on 2013 SV model - can you confirm that all SV models miss the wire from C pillar to drivers side kickpanel?

Thanks for your answers.

There are tons of reversed cameras on Ebay. The real problem is mounting it in the right spot so the lines are accurate.

My 2013 SV did not have wires from the C pillar to the kickpanel so I added my own video cable and wires.

Where? How do you find them?
Searching for "reverse" doesn't work - that just returns all the cameras ("back up", "rear view", "reverse").

I have connected the OEM camera according to all instructions in this thread, however I get only black screen with parking lines. I saw couple of 2013 SV owners had the same and some gave up with OEM camera. Can please someone confirm to make this work with OEM camera?
