Is yours a wireless one or wired? Wireless would be nice but worries me on loosing connection.

Plenty of threads about adding one and a ton of You Tube videos to help install.. I had the a OEM installed last week at my Dealer 525$ but that can run up to 1k$ depending on the dealer.. The OEM camera kit is less then 300 $. 2/3 hr install and the marker lines will move w/the steering wheel unlike after market which are fixed I believe..Plus the OEM need s to be flashed at the dealer, Tones of after market and the cheapest version is a GARMIN GPS 67 LM I think ,it can have a camera to it , not sure if it is wireless! I have the Uconnect Factory radio and it was made to take the Camera.. If you have a regular radio you will need a after market radio that is Back up camera friendly. Also look in the search box for tons of threads on it.

wired,so i can move it up to the camper when it's on the truck,or just the truck.i have about 4 feet of extra wire coiled up behind the bumper right now. fortunately,my kenwood dd has inputs for two cameras.rear one on a switch on the dash that i can turn on while moving forward and the front through the deck switch by tapping the screen.i can adjust the marker lines on both or make them invisible.

I didn't look in the 4th gen but none came up when I searched in the 3rd gen. I don't believe it was an option from factory for any 3rd gens.

Does the 3rd gen have the Uconnect Radio 5.0 or 8.4 ? If not the I would guess you need to go after market or a unit with a remote screen. Check out the Garmin GPS units or a radio upgrade

No it doesn't. Guess I should've asked for input on aftermarket set ups in my first post so I didn't confuse people. Sorry about that.
