I just got my 2012 GLK 350. It doesn't have the backup camera neither the navigation system, but it does have the standard 5' LCD. I am thinking to install a backup camera. Does anyone have recommendations on what I should buy? I was looking at the NAV TV interface which itself costs whopping 700 bucks.
And does anyone in Seattle area know a good shop to install that? The MB recommended shop asks for $1800!!!
There is a couple of threads about this but after all the hassle and what you really get I still prefer the OEM setup. You should not have cheaped out in paying an extra $3000 if you really want the backup camera (I know that is a lot of burgers and pop). You just bought a high-priced toy that is close to $40,000 and $3000 should not be a issue on your part.
The camera is only a small part of the $2,600 package in the case of the 2012 GLK which comes with a single DVD/CD player. Yes, it has already paid for itself by protecting far more expensive body work. I wish there were a front camera as well. It's not easy judging where the GLK stops in front.

2004 XC70 Turbo Race Wagon. 125k+ miles.
1999 S70. 155 1/2k miles. Gone but not forgotten.

I think the parktronic works well for the front of the GLK so no need for camera in front.

if you have a input port on your LCD, the Magellan back up remote camera may work,, i just installed one for my son to use with his Magellan GPS the cost is 150.00 the Magellan #9055 i think is the GPS you could look it up and see if it will work, jim
