Just installed one on my tow vehicle, not bad, have to work with it a bit so I can totally trust it.

Anyone else using backup cameras, how do you like them, which model did you buy or did it come with your vehicle. :question:

I'll have to get the pics together on the install and go over to the towing forum to post them up.

I'll post the pics when I get some time in the Towing forum. Installed a modern radio with it etc.
Thanks to one of my friends that did this and it just sounded soooooo gooood. :devilgrin:

Forgot, can you give us instructions on how you use your backup camera, did a search on google but could not find the Peach model you were talking about. :grin: :2thumup:

I was thinking about a backup camera for the front or underside of the Jeep to see what I and getting into before I do it. Specially when there is no spotter.

Not sure why this has not taken off. I'm not sure if it actually helps that much as the placement of the vehicle can always be shifted. I would guess that concentration may be broken. I always look ahead at the lines and continue to do so. I change placement and ultimately if I'm having problems I'll get out if no spotter (which rare since I don't wheel alone) it applies if spotter is up ahead or helping someone else in the group.

Placement of the camera can also be tricky as it will need to be protected. Undercarriage cameras have been used here and there but I don't see anyone that uses them (lately) making the big brag except for someone selling. Just a guess on my part. Btw, than you have the electronics to content with. I can see maybe for the guys that compete.

I always get out and check when no spotter is there. Usually happens when you are the leader and then you become the spotter for the guys you are leading.

You could also put a piece of plexi or lexan in the floorboard to view the undersides. As for the cameras, I would make sure to place them, if on the undersides, behind plexi or lexan to help protect the camera.

side mirror would help on the side, what's important is at the back you can't see it you really need spotter.

A buddy of mine has one of these things on his truck to help him hook up to his boat. We also found out that if you drive through town you can see lots of stuff on the screen that is being transmitted from other people's cameras. Some places use the same type camera and it must use the same frequency and we could see their feed.
