Rear Camera Upgrade

Is it possible to replace the single rear camera on the earlier M2s with the new dual camera?
Anyone know if the dual operates with one or two communication cables? My guess is two making the upgrade very difficult.

Having corrected the install on my 22 XL, it looks like two separate cables. The two cameras can be rotated apart from each other on location pins that give the correct offset between the two cameras. When installed properly, you get both a picture of your hitch and a view to the rear!

My 2020 Isata5 and my 2021 M2 Force came with dual rear cameras. Are you sure yours doesn't have duals? Maybe just a setting?

I just added a second camera below the original. Used the audio wire from the original camera to power up the 2nd camera. Added a Tadi brothers 9" screen to the dash and have all 4 cameras on all the time. The 2 rears give me a towbar/toad view and 2nd camera looks back beyond the toad. Works great.

This is a fantastic idea! We have never used the audio capability of this camera. In fact, I didn't know it had an audio feed.

Thank you

Do you happen to know what brand and model is the original camera?
