Backup camera best choice

Wondering what folks have chosen for a backup camera. The furrion 2 is pretty spendy and the on line reviews are mixed. I am pre wired.

Same here. Screen is small but does do the job.

I too have a Furrion camera, it works but as others have said the screen is small and the monitor mount is crap.
I now use a wireless, battery powered camera with a very strong magnetic base that sends the picture to my phone or ipad mini over wifi, the picture quality is excellent, it works with no time delay, excellent night vision and the battery life is between 4 and 6 hours.

I ended up taking a chance on this and guess what it works ok fine. Not HD by any means but I can see behind me. Mission accomplished (cheaply)

I use the Furrion. The monitor screen is small, but that relative to ones taste. It's about as large as some of the rear view mirrors were in the 70's. As frat as the monitor mounts goes, I scrapped their mount, bought a magnetic mount and fastened the metal plate that's provide to the back of the monitor. Works great.

12v power?

Just downsized from 32í Class A to 2019 T201BHXL and want to put in a wireless backup camera. These posts are very helpful. We were wondering if there is a 12v power supply at the back up camera mounting point?

Thanks!
