Default Recommendations for aftermarket backup camera installer in LA area

I’m looking to get a backup camera installed on a 991.1 I just purchased. Can anyone recommend a good installer in the Los Angeles or Pasadena area? Appreciate any help.

First thing you need to check is the version of your PCM. Older 991.1's cannot have a backup camera added without cracking open the head unit.

You may wish to purchase NM Automotive's CarPlay/Android Auto kit as this provides the capability of a back-up camera, plus of course the bonus of modern smartphone integration... total cost is less money than soldering in the required components for a back-up camera as a standalone mod.

Interesting Koala, I just sent Ronnieng a private email stating the same option/s as you did.
