Rostra Introduces Camera Interface for Ford Sync-enabled Vehicles

1-30-2017 -- Rostra Precision Controls has introduced part number 250-8452, a new camera interface for 2016-2017 Ford F-series trucks, Ford Explorer and Ford Edge vehicles equipped with the SYNC3 system and factory-installed 8-inch LCD screens. The interface is now shipping and allows for installation of multiple cameras around the vehicle with the intent of adding increased safety through driver awareness. 

Camera options include rearview, sidebiew/blindspot, forward-facing, cargo and trailer views. Drivers can also connect their mobile phone to the included HDMI input and instantly share their phone's screen to the dashboard of their vehicle. 

Module installation is said to take less than 30 minutes. The connection allows four cameras to the factory screen, in addition to the OEM backup camera.
