    I just got the cheap Pioneer one off of Amazon - works great, but it's basic. The reverse lights were enough to light up whatever I was backing towards.

    Even though those little CMOS cameras only dissipate a fraction of a Watt, it is a small package so if there isn't a good conductive heat path they will burn up. We use then in some of our smaller products and we have to be very careful to secure them to the metal structure to conduct the heat away. A tech was testing one on the bench once and he left it on while he went to lunch and the camera was destroyed when he returned. The lens was OK because we only use glass lenses, but the IC was gone and the circuit board was turned to charcoal. Actually charred fiberglass with no epoxy left. We always say what wrecks electronics is letting the smoke out.

    If you get a high end camera with a metal case and mount it to a metal surface with good metal to metal contact it should be OK.

    Looking to install a Backup Camera

    Great info. Thanks! My head unit allows me to add two cameras. Might get two decent ones and run them as "rock-cams", so I can see where the wheels are going. The H3 has really bad visibility issues.

    I just ordered an original H3 rear camera, do they connect to the existing harness? Or do I need to order that too?

    If your H3 didn't have the camera to begin with it is extremely unlikely that you'll be able to use it at all, it has to be able to work through the BCM (or some other module) and the rear view mirror display. It cannot be hooked up to an aftermarket display.

    And as far as I know, you cannot order the harness, or if you can, it is going to be a right PITA to swap them, I think it is part of a much larger body harness that runs to multiple points. You'd be better off making your own harness using the schematic on Schwarttzy's site and running that.

    If your H3 did have the backup camera and it's just missing or damaged, then yes it will work. Otherwise you're better off selling it and getting a standalone system, either a prepackaged one or putting together your own like I did.
