Pros: Works as advertised, good value and low price. Haven't tried it in total darknesss as I live in the city, but images have been clearly viewable at night so far. Though only 3.5", the display doesn't feel too small. The scale lines are a must-have in my opinion; otherwise the wide angle camera would make judging distance difficult. The image comes on about two seconds after shifting in reverse, which is good enough.
Cons: The instructions are completely useless. They identify the wires, and that's it. No splicing connectors of any sort so you'll need to obtain your own or solder the wires, which is what I did. The camera mount requires either drilling and screwing it on (screws not included) or figuring something out as I did- again, the instructions were of no help.
If you're handy and comfortable with doing wiring, it's a good buy. Otherwise you'd be better served by a unit with a license plate frame mount and includes splicing connectors.
For $58 this is a steal!!
Here's some tips for making your install go smoothly:
1. test out the camera upon receipt. A 9v battery is all you need. Connect the positive & negative leads from the camera / monitor to the same polarity posts on the 9V battery, and you should see the camera image come to life! The image clarity is excellent! This is why I chose this over wireless versions.
2. buy silicone sealant to seal the camera around the body to ensure water-proof protection from the weather. More water proofing never hurts, just keep it off the lens of the camera.
3. for the power connection, here's what you need to do -- the negative can be just connected to the car body metal frame (the entire car is set up as a negative ground, and connected to the battery's negative post.
---you can connect the positive power cable of the camera to the back up lights, so it comes on automatically when you put the vehicle into reverse. That's too much work for me, especially since the VGA video cable is going to the cab any way. I just used snipped off the appropirate length of 22 gauge hook up cable (from Radio Shack), connected it to the camera positive power lead (using posi-connectors, wrapped in tape & silicone sealed), and the wired it along with the VGA cable all the way to the cab.
4. I used an "add a fuse" from Amazon to connect the positive leads from the camera & monitor to the add-a-fuse, plugged into my internal fuse box, and voila, all set!!
This is an awesome kit, easy to install, and great images!!! Much safer and convenient to drive the truck in reverse now!!
Installation was relatively easy. The camera can be mounted in one of two ways. The first is a hole that you drill in your bumper or trunk lid (the hole is exactly the diameter of the camera). The second method involves a bracket that you can attach to the car. I chose the second method. I attached the bracket to the plastic piece on the trunk lid that overhangs the license plate (2009 Toyota Corolla) and ran the wires in through the holes where the license plate light wires go through the trunk lid. This allowed me to install the camera without having to make any holes in metal (I was concerned about creating a rust problem on the body of the car). I cut the wires going to the car's backup lights and attached the wires for power for both the camera and the screen (this way, both only come on when the car has been shifted into reverse). This solution required additional wire so that I could run a power cable from the car's backup lights up to the dashboard where the screen was mounted (on the other hand, the advantage is that I only had to cut into the car's wiring at 1 location, instead of having to find a power source for the camera and another power source for the screen). I got the extra wire at Lowe's, where you can buy wire cheaply by the foot. When I shift into reverse, both the camera and screen power up very quickly, and there is very little delay. I mounted the screen to the dashboard using velcro (the screen is very light, so this was no problem). The video cable uses a simple RCA connection at both ends. I had no problems having enough video cable, but it would be easy to add an extension since it uses standard connectors.
I was able to aim the camera such that the rear bumper of the car is just visible at the edge of the frame. This allows me to see exactly how far I am away from objects behind the car. In most conditions, the camera and screen make the image clear enough to easily see what is behind the car (during daylight or at night). On very sunny days, it sometimes can be difficult to see what is behind the car if the sun hits the camera at just the right angle. However, this only happens occasionally, and I'm ok with it.
About the only complaint that I have about the camera has to do with the screen. The screen is mounted with a ball joint to a plastic base. This ball joint initially was very stiff, but has loosened up. Because the ball joint is now loose, the screen doesn't stay in exactly the same position. This has not been a huge problem for me, because the screen is almost always easy to view. I do wish that the base for the screen was made better (had a better way to secure the position and orientation of the screen).
