How much should I pay to retrofit a reversing camera to a Honda Jazz?

My wife bought a low mileage 2018 Honda Jazz Navi last February from a Honda main dealer. It has a screen for the audio and sat-nav. At the service we had a courtesy Jazz which had a reversing camera fitted as standard, something my wife really liked. We asked the dealer to quote to retrofit our car with a reversing camera, for which they quote in excess of £600. This seems expensive, but other Honda dealers in the wide area have not come back in response to enquiries to quote to do this.

I would welcome your thoughts as to whether the quote is expensive and if you can suggest anyone independent to do the job.

The quote is not unreasonable as, from our understanding, it is not simply a case of plug-and-play. For example installing the camera in the correct position might require modifications to the car's tailgate. There are cheaper options, though, with aftermarket reversing cameras from companies such as Auto-Vox that cost from a little over £100 and aren't tricky to install, although they do mean a separate screen being mounted on or around the dashboard. Auto-Vox even do a solar-powered camera that doesn't need to be wired up for power.
