The installation and integration is done in Kiel, prices are given Inquiry, The result pleases. In the color monitor of the navigation system, the rear environment appears, making parking easier.
The first retrofits have already run in Kiel, the availability of the original Saab parts is naturally limited. Because you never made it into series production, which is somehow regrettable. Because, as I said, the reversing camera would have been a good investment.
