Is there a 3rd party back up camera that would work on the DriveSmart 50LMT ?

I could not find one online - also did not find anyone getting a 3rd party camera working on it either.

I am assuming these cameras using standard protocols, bluetooth etc - so might work???

I doubt it, there isn't a standard protocol for closed source devices like this. The camera needs to know how to talk and work with the main unit. If you are looking for something that costs less consider used or refurbished.

Thanks @LiquidRetro

What would be a non-Garmin Dashcam with rear view camera?
At $170, used and refurbished Garmin Camera will be still expensive. Bought the Navigator for $60 from $200 - but camera is unlikely discounted that much.

Sorry I don't have a suggestion in that market.
