    It's right above the license plate.



    I would have preferred the molded one that Nav-Tv sells had I been given a choice.

    Thanks John, looks like that will be the likely spot I will use as well... For those interested the Coolint CT-107B or CT-102B mount with a single center stud:

    Nice response T! I was hoping to keep this thread upbeat...

    And, I don't see a picture of your camera installed?

    Opps, I stand corrected, you did post a picture in a different thread... and I have to agree with you not a great one.

    the NAV kit.. goes in the systems of the 981 seamlessly...it goes to your screen and even you have the parking sensors.. the pic of your porsche becomes vertical instead of horizontal ..so you don't loose it. I have 3 kits on the shelves.. and we are cheaper than the NAV factory themselves through an arrangement i made.

    i have tried to get the dealer to put in my 2014 cayman but they can not . There has been a few wires added in plus a coaxial that was not included in the 14 and early 15 models..

    There is a picture in my DIY thread of my Coolint camera installed. They come in different colors, and I got the silver one, which from a distance looks OEM. I don't know what other colors they come in.

    William, from the few I have noticed in the wild your install looks indistinguishable from factory... BTW my NAV-TV module is finally in it's way, time to clear up space in the shop I guess.

    Well, what I meant to say that if that's a factory camera in this picture - it's not nearly as clean as that aftermarket camera we discussing. There's some mounting bracket clearly visible on the top.

    No worries T, just poking you a little bit!

    I agree that the Coolint camera looks very clean and factory like, which I will be using for mine. I will also look at your suggestion about adjusting the angle for a better view out back...

    Re: 2016 981 Cayman backup camera question

    Shovel head,

    very interested in the navy's for my 14bs. Could you tell me the name and location of the place that installed yours? Also, did you buy the parts and have them installed or did they sell you the parts also.?

    Thanks,

    Art

    Re: 2016 981 Cayman backup camera question

    Art, I used a place called Hurley's Auto Sound on Tyco Road in Vienna, VA. This is the second car they've done for me and their work is first rate. I got both the NAV-TV and the backup camera from them. They ordered all the parts and it took only two days for the parts to arrive. This included the first day when the other non-compatible module from crux was first tried. Once they determined they should have gotten the NAV-TV, they had it overnighted to them and they ate the higher cost. I'll have to look at my invoice to get the camera name but I am very happy with them. They said they had done a number of 911s and Caymans in the past with no problem using the Crux module and my 16 was the first car they could not get it to talk to the pcm. So your 14 might be fine with Crux. But NAV-TV is the safer bet. If you decide to go with Hurley's ask for Brian. I have no connection to them other than a very happy customer. Good luck
