What I wonder is, why did it work with a 2002 Odyssey then, which does not have the Navi option for the backup camera?ifeldman said:Some time back I downloaded the installation manual for the backup camera for the Pilot. It showed how to run the cabling up to the DVD player, which seemed possible with the MDX. It was a lot of panel removing and reinstalling. It came with a video switch that connected to the DVD player. The control came from the Nav. Even if we assume the video switch would work, it required a selection in the Nav setup (special factory setup mode) that enabled the camera option, and I verified our Nav setup does not have this option. That is not to say an upgrade to the Nav softrware wouldnt provide this option. There may be a way to control the switch without using the Nav, as others have done on this site with aftermarket cameras and video switches.
I have heard both that there would and would not be the option to install the new 03 MDX backup camera to the earllier MDXs. We can only hope.
I plan to wait until I know for sure that there will or will not be an option to use the new 03 cameras, as I definitely will add some sort of backup camera to my MDX in the future.
