Good luck, hope you figure out how to make it work but I suspect that, even if you do, you'll end up spending more for the parts than it would have cost you to buy a Leaf with Premium Package in the first place.
There are lots of 3rd party wireless backup camera solutions on the market, you might want to consider that option.
I looked for one down here for a few months and never managed to find one! Plenty would come and go but many didn’t even have QC… After scouring the service manual and looking up a lot of parts required to add it, I think I’ll just settle for the reverse cam. There is a lot more documentation on adding that and a proven method. It also appears that they may be some dealer interaction on the Around View module under the dash to “pair” it to the radio or vehicle.

I have not input on your original post, but I just wanted to welcome you to the club. I thought I was the only crazy person to give up my Mazdaspeed 3. I bought my 2015 Leaf S in February, trading in my beloved 2009 Black Mazdaspeed 3 that I had for 8 years. It was an awesome car but I was ready for a big change and my commute makes the Leaf perfect for me.
Awesome!! It was really tough parting with mine! I’ve had my Black 2012 for over 3 years and it was the most fun car I’ve ever owned. It just required more attention and money than I was willing to put into it anymore. City mileage was so very bad in it lol.
But yes, the Leaf makes my daily commute and runs at work so much better!
