2010 via 25T upgrade questions

Factory dash infotainment head replacement
On a 2010 Via is there some sort of switching mechanism for the 3 side/rear cameras then a single input into the head unit or are there 3 inputs on the head unit itself.
Awaiting delivery on our new to us 2010 25T and looking at replacing the dash head unit with something up to date and wondering if the factory unit is a propritary unit or if its somewhat standard.

Coach pattery replacements:
Currently has wet call interstate batteries(old and crusty) when replacing should I find newer technology like AGM or is there drawbacks to that or some other improvment I can make? I can fabricate, weld, wire and do whatever is required to make upgrades.

I am quite sure that the Mercedes Sprinter chassis that the Via is based on uses a proprietary camera system. I played with it a little on a Via I almost bought and it looked very usable. The camera switched from the rear to the side view when you hit the turn signal. Integrating that capability into a custom system would be tough and I don't see any value in doing it.

Had I bought the Via I would have replaced the existing Group 24 batteries that were old and crusty like yours with two Group 31 AGM batteries. They could be made to fit, but it would be tight.

Why AGM? Well they can be used as either starting or deep cycle house batteries unlike flooded lead acid (FLA) batteries that are rarely deep cycle in 12V form. 6V golf cart batteries are true deep cycle but it didn't look like there was enough head room for these taller batteries. If there were room and you could probably make the room by fabricating your own steel support structure, that would be a good choice and give you a few more Ahs.

The next step up would be a pair of Battle Born lithium batteries- Group 31 size at 100 Ah, with 180 Ah usable unlike the AGMs which have 100 Ah usable.
