Googo wireless camera

Just got this rechargeable, wireless camera from Amazon for $36.99. It connects to any Andriod or Apple without the use of a router. I plan to set it on my truck bumper to hook up to my hitch. It could also sit on the TT rear bumper to see there also. Little camera has a real good picture for a cheap device.

What's it's range? Sounds like a good, cheap option as a rear view camera for the back of the camper.

How do plan to attach it to your bumper, and connect it to your iphone/android?

Think I found the link. Looks interesting, I might pick this up to try as I'd love to have a rear view cam on the back of the trailer.

It's wireless to the phone. I am going to just sit it on the bumper just a temporary camera for hooking up and parking.

So...you need a router to link to your phone/pad. Does anyone run a wifi network while towing?

This camera claims that it is peer-to-peer, no router needed.

Problem is, it does not have very good ratings.

It is peer to peer. Links well to my Android phone. Picture is good. Range is advertized as 100 to 300 feet. Works perfect to 75 feet that I have tested. Seems to work good in sun or shade. I have just had it a couple of days, but first impressions are impressive.
