Is there a rear view camera that can be used with the factory cadillac navigation system ? Does cadillac even offer a rvc.

The CTS Coupe and the SRX offer rearview (backup) cameras.

Any video camera can be rigged to work with the factory nav, since it takes a video in signal. Not sure if that is limited to when not moving.

On the other hand, there is a newish solution that shows the backup video in one part of the rearview mirror, which is handy for cars without nav.

I was also wondering what the video from the front-looking camera in my STS-V that is used for lane departure detection warning looked like.

GM’s Lane Departure Warning System also debuts as an option on the 2008 STS. Controlled by a camera located in the rearview mirror that reads the lines in the road, the system will alert drivers when they have strayed into another lane. Drivers receive both an audible and visual alert cue.

When the Lane Departure Warning System is engaged, a driver traveling at 35 mph or more who crosses a detected lane marking without signaling is alerted in two ways: The system flashes an amber indicator light located in the fuel gauge of the instrument panel, and an alerting chime of three beeps is played. The system does not steer the vehicle; it is designed only to alert drivers so they can take appropriate action to move the vehicle back into the lane.

Another new optional feature, GM’s Side Blind Zone Alert System, extends and enhances driver awareness and vision. Alternating radar beams in Side Blind Zone Alert System sweep adjacent lanes of traffic, covering a zone of about one lane over from both sides of the vehicle, or 11 feet (3.5 m). The zone starts at each side mirror and goes back about 16 feet (5 m).

When the system is engaged, a driver will know that following vehicles in the adjacent lanes are entering their side blind zone when an amber symbol, located in the outside rearview mirror, is illuminated.

The system is not designed to detect vehicles outside of the side blind zone that may be rapidly approaching, or detect pedestrians, bicyclists or animals. It’s designed to ignore infrastructure such as fire hydrants or parked cars. In addition, the system displays do not come on while the vehicle is approaching or passing other vehicles.

The Lane Departure Warning and Side Blind Zone Alert systems can be manually turned off by the driver.

Thank you,

Thanks Caron. I meant I wondered if I picked up the video feed off the camera what the actual video looked like. I'll leave it for a science experiment for another day.
