I've got the BC-20 backup camera option with the RV 760. The BC-20 does not have night-vision capabilities. I guess if used with a car, the reverse lights might be good enough to illuminate the scene but there is no such thing on most towables.
The camera range is also not totally sufficient from the back of my 5er to the GPS on the dash - it drops out enough that the GPS screen keeps flipping back and forth. Garmin is not the only brand with this problem and I admit I'm right on the edge of the stated range.
With the GPS, this is most annoying when its getting dark at the end of a winter's day travel and you really want it to stay on the GPS screen for those last few mile directions but the automatic headlights have already switched on the running lights. Wouldn't be so bad if there was a setting to keep the GPS from automatically switching to the camera whenever the signal "drops in" but there isn't. I bought the extension cable and am in the process of relocating the transmitter to the front end to deal with that.
