I've been contemplating adding a front camera for years. After multiple cheap DIY attempts at trying to trick the Sync3 APIM, I finally folded and bought a Naviks harness adapter/module.

- The NAVIKS harness (NK-1304-FCAM) was the most expensive part of this mod ($300)
- Switch FL1Z-13D730-AA ... My Expy had a blank "dummy" switch in place of the Hill Descent button, so I bought that switch and customized it with a new logo.
- Camera NATIKA WD-011 (Amazon); has 3 small loop wires to control the image orientation and/or add distance grid lines.
- The box the camera is mounted on is made out of 1/8" thick ABS plastic sheet.

Took a lot more pictures. Happy to share.
