Backup camera on 03 with PCM?

I just picked up an 03 S with PCM / nav. Will the central screen I have support a back up camera? If not, what are my choice for mounting the viewer: replace nav unit, rear view mirror option, take a child with me to watch where I back up?

Using my mirrors and rear window usually works.

I don't think it can be done with the PCM
How much money were you planning to spend ?
The only way I can think of is to install a double DIN unit (the original PCM is not that great anyway)

It can be done with PCM 2.1, but you have to get it coded with a PIWIS to accept the AV input.

After checking with the dealer who referred me to Custom Sounds they said it can be done with this:

NAV-TV Corporation: Audio and Video Interfaces

Still have to get a camera to go with the system.
