I bought this one and it fit perfectly.

I wired it to an aftermarkey JVC KW-M730BT. I tapped into the reverse lights. You have to take off the rear hatch cover to install and then route the wires through the rubber wire connector from the hatch into the car which was a challenge. I installed it late 2017 and it's been working fine since.

Im pretty sure I saw a youtube video of something doing this same install.. the fit is so small I have no problem parking it. However, after upgrading to a double din and now having the option, I am tempted..
Was it worth it to you? Im more curious in the quality of the camera.. is it good?

What head unit are you going to hook your camera up to?

There are a lot of cheap options on AliExpress, possibly eBay/Amazon too.
I bought this camera off of AliExpress, I haven't installed it yet, though.
I hope to do so this weekend.



I currently have the Auto-Vox X1 Pro rearview mirror installed on my car and am using that camera. Sorry no pics of this, I may do a post about this in the future though. The camera is installed using one of the license plate screws.

It's definitely not necessary, but because I had the double din headunit and I could, I tried it out. Also, I was having trouble backing up at night down a long straight paved driveway. I upgraded the reverse lights to LED's (which helped a bit) and then added the backup camera. The night vision is ok, and it does help me navigate that driveway. I also like that you know how close you can get when parallel parking or backing up to something. That part is nice.

As a side note, we have two 2012 Base Fits and my stepson (age 26) said "do not add a backup camera to his Fit". He is old school (at 26), and finds the backup camera distracting. I like it and find it works well.

The camera quality is surprisngly decent. Not high def, but clear enough.
