Hi, I'm Pete. Welcome to JustAnswer! I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply ASAP.
Ok, so the 2007 Explorer is not capable of taking additional video inputs such as the backup camera into its existing monitor.
There are other options that can integrate seamlessly with your vehicle - you can have your rear view mirror replaced with one of the 4 options below. It will use the factory ford bracket to integrate seamlessly:
These are a little bit over your budget, but they will give you the best integration.
Alternatively you could get a separate monitor that would be fitted to the windshield or the top of the dash.
Ok, time to get that backup camera installed then!
Does my answer help?
Hi, I am both a fully qualified electronics and computer engineer, and have installed many car audio, sensor and backup systems over the years.
I offered you the best possible solution and it is the one I would definitely recommend for best integration, but as you quite rightly point out there are many different solutions, and if your budget does not allow the best solution then you can go with a dash-mounted solution instead - it will be down to your personal preference on what extra features you want included, e.g. GPS, and screen size, etc.
Well, I have had overwhelmingly good luck with this particular site:
Technically yes, as those units can be spliced for lack of traditional fitting in the worst case, and even then I figure there are certainly video cables in regard to female/male connections and as such, should accept nearly any brand for 12v applications. How detailed can I tailor your response for further recommendation? Thanks!
Most likely reverse trigger. Green is sometimes brake also, however red and black would be power and ground while the other wire will connect to your reverse light positive feed to send the signal to the monitor to display the signal automatically when in reverse.
