Iceman can you post some pics of how your camera is installed ? I want to do the back up camera,but 200+$ for a camera I am worried about it getting ripped off. The licsense plate frame camera brackets seem like easy targets for theives. Thanks

03cumminsmtz yes, there are. I got one at Frys for about $49. They have them starting at $29 and going up to $49 if you already have the screen.
I've also been trying to figure out a way to put some tiny cameras on my mirrors facing my blind spots that will show up on my screen when I turn the blinker on whichever direction. For some reason, short cars have a fascination with hanging out in my blind spots.

Looking for ideas on Back-up cameras and monitors. I'm tired of getting out to see how close I am to trailers. Also thought about adding one to the front to help judge distance in parking lots.
Fill out your sig/info
Where are you located. If you are located in a state that uses any salt on the road. You are going to want to spend the $$$ to either buy a camera that is warrantied against corrosion or buy some kind of sealed box to install the camera in. My dad and I installed a camera on his Dmax back before Christmas and it was stainless steel and within 4 months it was shot because the camera itself wasnt hermetically sealed.

The mirror with screen is great, its also a auto dim mirror, its very high quailty, you cant tell there is a screen in the mirror..At first the gentex mirror and camera were not compatible, I was contacted to make these Two work together by mgtmotorsports... The camera is now plug and play to the mirror... Took a few hours to install... Instead of hooking up to the reverse wire under the dash, i used the rear backup light wire in the rear to trigger the mirror and camera to come on...
Once the truck is in reverse the screen comes into view, sorry for picture quality
The camera is mounted on my license plate frame, i need it out as far as i can due to the torsion receiver height and length for my trailer... I am going to come up with something better soon....
The small push button switch (to the left) makes the camera go from straight back view to trailer hookup view, the lense inside changes.. Makes hitching up Solo easy
This is the view when in reverse
This is the view when the button is pushed...........Hope this helps Guys
