Yeah I heard the same thing. For Canada at least. My work bought a bunch of 17 sv's and I just installed the rostra back up camera's. They work ok and are cheaper than the tech package but there are cheaper ones that may be just as good. We just picked up an sv with the tech package the camera doesn't give a great picture and doesn't show very far behind you compared to fullsize pick up truck backup cameras. The tech package camera is mounted near the door handle on the rh rear door. I'll try to post pics comparing the rostra and the tech package cameras one day.
