    Dear Friends, I'm planning to install reverse camera in my linea.. Which is the best one.. Do I need to go with the fiat dealer for installing Accesories or can I fit it outside? Any suggestions?

    Hi @antony1405 , though not sure about the best one, reverse camera won't be fitted by dealers as those are not genuine accessories authorized by fiat.
    It will void the warranty for sure.

    Hi Pabhishek... I checked with RDC Fiat and they confirmed that they have the different Accesories like reverse camera, reverse sensor, video screen on neck rest(not sure exact name of the product but I have seen in service centers displaying all those products) , GPS unit etc... And they confirmed the warranty in not void since they are the ones installing..

    Even if reverse camera is fitted, where will you see the images? You will need a separate display unit since the HU cannot be used for the same.

    Instead of reverse camera, would suggest to go for the reverse sensors which FASS can provide and will have the warranty too.

    I have a display of Reverse camera in IRVM internal real view mirror, no need to have separate display in my Linea.
    why fiat is not giving camera, display in IRVM and sensors as standard like Hyundai gives in i20, Verna, Grand, Xcent, Elantra and santa fe.

    @ghodulur- the reverse camera images can be seen in the IRVM(used as both mirror and cam) They will fit it above the normal mirror..

    @dadasaheb - how is the reverse cam which you have installed? And how much does it cost?

    Will the IVRM continue to work the same way as it is now? I mean day/night mode, can you still flip the IVRM to night mode?

    I had also got an after-marker rear view camera fitted. The image projects on to the IVRM. It is quite a neat arrangement. The only observation is that in bright sunlight, the image is quite washed out & is not very clearly visible. I lower light conditions, the image is very clear. It also shows three bars, green, yellow & red. As long as the obstruction is outside the red bar you are OK (with a safety margin).

    I had earlier installed the parking sensor - it only provided an audio warning when obstructions came close. Now, I get both visual, and audio indications. It is worth having both. My parking sensor was sourced from Fiat.

    Regards
