Is OEM Rearview Mirror Backup Camera Available?

Good Evening...

I recently purchased a 2007 F150, FX4 Crew Cab. I've seen many models of the F150 (and many other Fords) with a backup camera built into the rear view mirror. Oddly enough, my truck has factory navigation, leather, and factory rear DVD, but no backup camera. Not a huge deal, as I'd almost prefer it built into the mirror than through the navigation. Can anyone provide me with the Ford part number for the rear view mirror with the camera capability? I tried looking of Ford Parts websites, but couldn't identify anything. If there is a simple camera add on to the factory navigation, I'd certainly consider that as well. I just don't want to deal with anything that isn't OEM. Any and all replies are most appreciated. Thank you.

John

They didn't offer it in 07, but here's a link for 08 and up.

Thanks for the feedback. Definitely seems odd to me that a backup camera wasn't an option for the factory navigation. I see the link you provided is for the rear view mirror camera. Is there any reason that wouldn't work in a 2007 model? It looks like a basic rearview mirror that simply needs power? Am I missing something? It looks like something that would work in any vehicle.

I'd call them and ask. If it works independent of the rest of the truck, I'd say yes, but it's getting a back up signal from someplace. They may be able to give you the install manual and you can look and see if you have the necessary connections.
