    I did some research online about the Lockpick product from http://www.coastaletech.com/mytouch2.htm and their BBB rating is C- as I think about 10 people had complaints about them that were unresolved and they must sell some of their products on Amazon.com and the reviews from people were very mixed. Sounds like at first some of the people everything was fine but then after a while the unit would start glitching out.

    Very much hoping there is a way to get the factory camera to work. Would rather spend my money on the Mountune MP215 tune kit.

    Me too. However, if OEM is not an option, I plan on asking my expert here at the dealer what he thinks of the lockpick option before I go and make the purchase. I will post his answer as soon as he gets back to me. I expect Monday or Tuesday next week. Cheers....Gary

    I'm late to the party, I know, but it seems this thread has kinda died. Does that mean that all the options proved prohibitive for one reason or another? I'm not despondent about the lack of a back-up cam, but if it were easily doable without breaking the bank and making the rear end look Rube-Golbergish, I'd consider it.

    Sorry folks, I heard back from ford and it is not doable with factory parts.

    It is do able with the Coastal Electrical Lock pick kit at about $350. I'm just a bit gun shy because their online review isn't the greatest and they won't help out with aftermarket camera. I'm pretty sure you could get the Ford camera to work with it.

    Forgot to add would have to run a cable from the trunk to the nav screen for the camera.

    I think the cameras are available after market for less than a Ford part. I will do some research and post what I find.

    I found some on Aliexpress for $10-$20. Think the Ford camera is about $125

    For what it is worth, I have a Lockpick in my Chevy pickup truck. I have had it for almost 2 years now, and have had no problems. It does what it says it will do: automatically switches the Nav screen to the camera when in reverse, allows you to integrate an IPOD into the sound system, allows you to input navigation destinations while in motion, etc. On the Chevy, you control the Lockpick with the stereo buttons on the steering wheel, I don't know how the Fiesta version is controlled though. You can connect any standard camera to it, there is a 12 volt power output for the camera and a standard video input connector. You do need to run a long set of wires to the camera from the dash, but many of the cameras you can buy come with those cables.

    On the Fiesta the voice button activates the camera if you hold it down for 5 seconds. From what the guy from Coastal told me the factory camera with the factory wiring harness will not work on the FiST and the Lockpick. I think this is because on the FiST the wiring harness from the trunk back to the nav area contains no wires for a backup camera. Which is why to make this work one will have to run a cable from the back up camera to the nav area for integration in the Lockpick.

    The Fiesta ST3 in the UK now has this on the options list.

    Did you end up going with one of these? I've been thinking about getting one.

    No, I spent my money on Mountune MP215. Maybe next year probably would go with the Coastaletech mytouch lockpick 2 and buy a backup camera from Aliexpress that goes into the stock light bulb area above the license plate. $350 for lockpick kit plus about $20 for camera.

    That's weird because when I looked up part numbers the harness for a titanium and an st were the same for the wiring harness from the hatch to the console.

    They nav/mft units are different, with different software (and possibly hardware)

    At the end of the video, it says, "For all MyFordTouch and MyLincolnTouch systems."
