So it might not be worth the dollars. I can use my gps on my phone, or check out the ford service gps, maybe for a few months. I need to get better at backing up, I may not need the backup camera often enough. The jury is still out, but it's not convincing enough.

I use my rear camera all the time while driving, really necessary for city driving, lane changes and traffic.

How long is your camper? I just got a camera from them and my 40' camper was to long for the signal. They sent me an antenna extender which I installed today. Didn't help. Now they are sending me more powerful Tx and Rx. Will report back if it works.

Not sold on them yet.

I have the Garmin RV760 and its a great unit. I prefer to have a dedicated unit, front and center on my dashboard, that doesn't need a data plan and cell connection to operate. It also functions as a Bluetooth handsfree device and, if you let it, the unit will also connect to the internet through the Smartphone Link app to enable additional features.

I bought it with the BC-20 back-up camera and mounted that in the Furrion mount. I have a thread from about 2 years back about how I did that.

Following a trip to Florida, I had decided that I had to add the extension cable to move the transmitter from all the way at the back into the front storage of the 5er because the signal was intermittent. It was really annoying that every time the camera signal became strong enough to be received, it captured the screen and I had to hit the 'return' button to get back to the map. Each time the signal became too weak for too long and then came back up, that cycle would repeat. That was usually just after dusk, after a long days drive, when navigating local roads to an overnight campground in a city you'd never been to - just when you want the map screen on full time. There is no setting to disable that auto-switch behavior. No more problems now that the transmitter is just over the right taillight of my TV.

The camera is quite useful on the highway... just flick the headlight switch to 'running lights' to immediately see what's behind you and turn off to return to the map. Lots better than trying to judge lane change merging in your side-view mirrors.

If you have multiple Garmin -LM units (I have 3) its best to download the map update for the RV760 first because, while its the biggest, once the Garmin Express app unpacks it, the other 2 map updates don't have to download very much more.

When I sold a SOB GPS (a completely underwhelming Magellan), I just gave the person my site login so they retained the lifetime map updates.

Update:

Installed the more powerful TX and RX today. I can go 300' from camper and still get a perfect picture. Will test it on the road Thursday and report back.

Wireless backup cams

I didn't start the thread but did high jack a good bit of it.

The part about installing the transmitter extension is here Rear View camera install
