GPS System with Remote Camera?

I'm not sure where to post this, but I thought the Electrical forum would be best.

I'm interested in using a remote camera in place of a passenger-side mirror on my '54 Chevy pickup/street rod. I'm thinking a 4" x 6" video screen, built into an overhead console, would be cool ... and I heard there are some GPS systems that include remote viewing.

Has anyone here done anything like this? Any ideas or pointers you can offer? Maybe a scrapyard might be a resource?

Thanks.

Alan

There are several in-dash GPS receivers that include connections for a rear-mounted camera. Most of them are tied to your backup lights so that the camera activates when you put the car in reverse. However, these systems are very pricey if all you want to do is replace your rear-view mirror.
