Which back up camera to buy?

we had one put in our E250 when we got it back in 2012... "yuuuuge" blind spot back there.
FWIW, the guy at the shop told me that the wireless units can be subject to some interference and he did not recommend.it.
We went with the Mito [wired] unit and display in the Gentex mirror. Yes, it was pricey, but we have been very pleased. The display is clear. A bonus was that I can just see the ball which is helpful for hooking up the trailer - as Andrew noted.

^^^ Yes, a lot like that, not sure of exact model (nothing on my paperwork)
I'm at home with the file now (was going from memory earlier).
Looks like Mito is the distributor for the Gentex.mirrors.
The camera that we got is a "Boyo" #VTL425.
Good luck.
oh yeah, cool wagon! :cool:

My boss and a coworker got them for their Toyota pick ups. My boss had his installed at a car audio shop and the other was installed by the coworker. Both are hard wired. Guess it wasn't too difficult. The shop said the same, wireless can be spotty. I've had factory back up cams in several cars over the years and love them. My only advice on aftermarket ones in the mirror would be get the largest display. The ones my boss and coworker has are pretty small. They certainly help but the bigger the better when it comes to usefulness.

I saw the photo on another thread, those are cool cars. Bulgari has one with a 711 rwhp big block in Allentown :eek::cool:
Kinda funny, our company founder loved big wagons... drove nothing but for probably 40 years, he was strictly a blue oval guy. Some of the other guys talked him into one of the Roadmasters when Ford quit the big wagon business. It drove and ran great... but the electrical system was a real nightmare. Hope you got a good one.
here is the camera on our van - it is barely visible ... fwiw, you could park that wagon in the blind spot there :rolleyes:
