First off I like to say that the Jeep Compass is interior is very easy to take apart a few screws for the tie downs and the rest just unsnaps
5 min. you have exposed everything you need to get too.
I also removed the license plate light benzel for mounting the camera and routing the cable into the cab side.
Then installed the benzel back on the tail gate hatch.
Next I attached the wireless transmitter with double tape to the back of the windshield wiper motor plate this is in direct line of the radio and is also covered up by the trim cover that was removed earlier.
The power wire is run to the driver side though the boot down to and attached to the white/blue stripe backup light wire.
My next step is to modify the retention cable by removing the RCA cable from the female plug and solder to the male plug end.
I know I only needed the camera plug for the backup camera, but
Sense I was there I might as well add the in and out video RCA plugs
Just in case I like to put a monitor in the back seat.
Now to put it all back together and see if it works…
I attached the wireless receiver to the bottom side of the radio with double sided tape and attached the power to the 12v power plug.
To test everything I plug in a 5" monitor to the DVD RCA output.
Testing the DVD out and backup camera.
And Last testing the back monitor , and navigation being used.
The other RCA plugs are for video in which I did not have a source to test it. But it should work and will be there should I need them.
My last step was to put back the trim panels , and enjoy my new system.
This has been a fun project and not hard at all I hope you all like it.
