I don't live in SOCAL but I did call Jose. He said he had done "2 or 3" of these installations with the NAV-TV equipment which, by the way, cost a lot more than $300. He said it's real tricky and whoever you have make the installation should be very competent. He didn't say anything about any of it not being available to the public. I also talked to and got an email from the Parts/Maintenance Manager at Bob Wonderies Ford out there. He told me about an aftermarket product they install. It's a rearview mirror that has 3 functions. Touch screen navigation, automatic night vision back up camera, and Bluetooth. If you already have some of this stuff or you don't want it, you can get the automatic night vision camera only. He said it doesn't interfere with any other functions of the car. I think this is what I'm gonna do, with the back up camera only.
