A client from Maple Ridge recently contacted Certified Autosound and Security to inquire about a backup camera and remote starter for his 2016 Dodge Journey. After a quick inspection of the vehicle, we explained the camera and starter options available, along with the benefits of each product. The client chose solutions that would meet his functionality and performance expectations.
Premium Backup Camera Upgrade
For the backup safety system, our team started the project by installing a Rydeen Duo3HD camera on the rear of the vehicle, just above the license plate. The wide-angle, water-resistant camera features an angled zinc alloy mounting bracket that helps ensure that everything behind the vehicle is visible.
After routing the wiring through the tailgate, the factory harness boot and up to the front of the vehicle, they connected it to a NAV-TV Uconnect-RVC interface. This interface works with the 4.3-inch color display in the factory-installed radio to show the camera image. The interface not only reads steering wheel angle information to display dynamic parking lines on the camera image but also sends a reverse trigger signal to the screen so that the camera image appears automatically when the vehicle is in reverse gear.
Dodge Journey Remote Car Starter
The client wanted a remote car starter that was easy to use. We use Compustar control modules for all of our remote starter installations because they are the most reliable on the market and the company provides the best support. For this Dodge Journey, we programmed the Compustar DC3 control module to monitor the key fob that came with the vehicle and start the engine when the lock button is pressed three times in quick succession.
Our team used a vehicle-specific harness from iDatalink to complete the integration process and reduce the number of wire-to-wire connections they had to make. The harness uses OEM-grade male and female connectors for excellent reliability.
Vancouver’s Vehicle Enhancement Specialists
With the backup camera and remote car starter installation complete, our technicians completed their quality-control tests and gave the vehicle a final inspection before calling the client to let him know it was ready to go. When the owner returned to Certified Autosound and Security, we showed him how to use the remote starter and explained how the camera system works. He was impressed with our installation and how easy it was to use the new systems.
