Terrific write up. This is certainly an option for those who don’t have the Nav system

In general, I don't think backup cameras are required. As long as my head turns, I can figure out how to back up. But the visibility out the back of this car is pretty bad. I could see behind me better in my convertible Boxster. So for the Vantage, this is a great improvement.

Great write up MRCW. Can anyone tell me how the map light cover is removed? Is there a screw under that black plastic piece between the map lights that holds it in place?
