My son organized the family to buy me one of these for Father's Day. Works really well. And could be put into the category of marriage saver for some of us...

DW says its the driver that has issues. I disagree, but I can't convince her it would be soooo much easier to tell me which way the truck needs to go as it approaches the tongue, not after we missed....

She did come up with a pretty good solution for this and for getting parked on the leveling blocks. Once we are close and decided where we want to be, we switch - she drives, I direct. Works pretty good, and if it doesn't - I get the blame, as usual, and then carry on.

But seriously, for the investment, the Eyeball Cam works well, and its great if you are hooking up by yourself.

DW did a decent job, but when she would say, "Go that way a little bit", there were no hand signals or "left" or "right" in her vocabulary. The camera has solved that problem for me.

Uodate - received the IBall wireless camera. tried it out and found it works well for viewing the hitch as long as there is no metal between the camera and the monitor, If I set it on the bumper the monitor display would scramble (to many lines to see the picture) if I set it on top of the tail gate (tail gate closed) it had a very good picture. Snow and lines when on the bumper of the TT no good for this application. Yes the blue tooth interferes with it so I turned off the blue tooth (my Tundra has this option) and had it off during my test stated above.

Summary: Set it on the top of the closed tail gate, point it down at the hitch and it works good but not much good for anything else. I will give it another trial when I go Camping again perhaps it will do better away from the house and possible interference here.

Like most have said; some love it, some have concerns. I've had one for a year now, and generally it remains in the console, unused.

Yes, Bluetooth equipped vehicles and cell phone proximity can really impact picture quality--snowy to the point of being of no use. As with others, I have disabled the Bluetooth, and/or removed the phones from the cab, but that's a hassle, too.

I've had the camera in all locations, and picture quality does vary. Sometimes it's very good. However, in different light situations, the image quality is quite poor. I bought mine from Amazon, and read the dozens and dozens of user testimonials. Can't say I wasn't warned! Sure wish it worked better.

Oh well! I started with the yellow tennis balls atop the radio antenna-type posts, and am back to them. They work every time!

Baby monitors/camera from Walmart works good. No interference from anything.
