I had the same issue, it's because the Aerial is in the rear windscreen. Also as Farqui notes, does it have a shielding device?

I had the same with the Blackvue rear cam on my Accord. I originally had it on the off side top of the rear window and it interfered with the FM radio. I moved it and its cable to the near side top with cable down the nearside. Problem solved.
The same camera doesn't give me a problem on my Civic. I have the rear camera mounted just below the 'mid widow' spoiler as close to the centre of the car as I can get it.

Try using a shielded USB cable.

It's shielded co-ax already and I don't need to try anything as I don't have a problem.
Not sure how I would terminate it anyway with a couple of those tiny little co-ax plugs that are specifically designed for co-ax.

Don't think so, just straight out of the box wiring
