    Effective this month, all new cars sold in the US must be equipped with a rear view camera and screen that activates when the vehicle is placed in reverse gear. This should be great news for Challenger buyers.

    I have a 2014 100 Anniversary Edition Challenger. It is loaded with everything, including a DVD player, BUT it doesn't have a "back-up" camera. I would like to find one but the dealers, Golling Chrysler in Bloomfield, Michigan does not have them,, period !. Any ideas out there where I can purchase one ?? Thank you all. JC

    you might want to try another dealer, cause the one you listed probably doesn't want to go through the process of looking it up and getting it ordered......you can get them from them as a add on kit , it is probably listed in their Mopar accessories catalog, may cost you a few hundred dollars, but it like getting push button start as an add on, they can get it. just cost extra.

    Thanks David for your reply, but I have tried several different dealerships. Same results. One of the Property Employees stated I should try Micky Shores. Havent yet, but just might be my last stop.

    you might want to try and see if you can locate a lock pic kit, That is what I have on mine and it ties into the radio, I have back up cam which we had to run the cable and locate the camera on the top of the license plate. once it was hooked up I just had to go into the radio settings and turn it on. now with yours being a 2014, your radio/nav would be kinda like mine a RER MyGig type base radio. 2015 is when they changed everything in the interior on the challenger...
