no - the garmin book says that to hook up a backup camera on a 7200 - I need a DR cable (dead reckoning) - it look proprietary and I can't find one. it appears that it needs to connect to dc power
Car Electronics Technician: Thomas Tullo, Car Electronics Technician replied 1 year ago
Or does your Garmin have the round port?

Car Electronics Technician: Thomas Tullo, Car Electronics Technician replied 1 year ago
Thats an option on that unit, not needed to use.
Ask Your Own Car Electronics Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
the unit is powered with a round port and I have the wire -- it also has a video/ audio port which I also have. but trying to hook up a back up camera - nothing works --- book says a dr cable is needed
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I'm looking for a workaround
Car Electronics Technician: Thomas Tullo, Car Electronics Technician replied 1 year ago

are you talking about the din cable thats round on both ends and has several pins inside
Ask Your Own Car Electronics Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
no - I don't think you understand--- The camera has power ---- the garmin has power and works --- I have the connecting wires from tthe camera (RCA connector) to the garmin ( mini pin audio/video ) but apparantly something else is required
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
not a garmin camera
Car Electronics Technician: Thomas Tullo, Car Electronics Technician replied 1 year ago
no i don't think so, it sounds like you have it all hooked up, have you gone through settings on Garmin?
Ask Your Own Car Electronics Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
yup - tried setting for both backup camera and the audo/dvr setting but it doesn't recognize a camera or any other input so I pressume that the dr cable mentioned in the manual is needed to trip some switch
Car Electronics Technician: Thomas Tullo, Car Electronics Technician replied 1 year ago
I wish i could have just called you, but it's against rules we have to go through this to call so they can get more money.

The DR cable im seeing has no wires to hook up, looks like it goes from din to din connectors, does your garmin have a round socket for a din plug?
Ask Your Own Car Electronics Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
no - well I guess we're really not getting anywhere. I have a pretty good understanding of this - I just wanted to know about the dr cable and its function - doesn't seem like it has any purpose - the plug I see in the manual has an elongated 2 pin plug with only one wire dealing with the camera no din plugs
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
the second wire deals with the dead recokoning function
Car Electronics Technician: Thomas Tullo, Car Electronics Technician replied 1 year ago
Ok maybe a reverse signal to activate camera

I have hooked up many cameras to the garmins and never used a DR cable and never had an issue
Ask Your Own Car Electronics Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
must be a newer style - the ones I have seen are 1 double plug and 2 wires one for camera - dc hookup and the other is
DR function. Hold on while I go to garmin site again
Car Electronics Technician: Thomas Tullo, Car Electronics Technician replied 1 year ago
Thats possible the ones i have hooked up weren't very old

from the pic, I can't tell where it would plug in anyhow. the only open port i see is a mini usb - it mentions a weather port on the 7500 but mine (7200) doesn't have one
