      ODB2. I have always wanted one for myself so you will have to enjoy one for me.

          OBD-II for sure, and $150 for a backup camera is just silly. You should be able to get both for $150 total.

            OBDII if it were me, but then again I don't really have much use for the back up cam. That's why Chevy gave me sideview mirrors. With the left over dough I'd probably invest in brighter back up bulbs though, but that's just me.

              Yeah I would get OBD-II, I got it a few months ago and I like it not because of the cool factor but because I can check the CEL and find out whats going on. Last week saved me atleast $100 when my CEL came on and it was just a sensor so I did the job myself.

                The backup cam would be useful for me. With a truck when I backup I can't see jack and can't tell how close I am to other cars when parking and what not..

                If you can find me a backup cam with a wide angle viewing area and the ability to be used in the dark for $70 I'd love to see it!!

                        Hmmm... I wish more people here had reverse cams to give opinions on them... I just want to make sure the one I get will actually be useful. Like if I'm backing up at night I want something that will at least let me see what I'm looking at. I have a cheap crappy logitech webcam and I hooked it up just for giggles and at night it didn't do crap...

                            I don't know enough about camera specs to tell you what to look for,
                            but make sure whatever camera you get can be used at night.
                            I got the pinhole camera from digitalww, that one is worthless at night.

                            BTW, how is your Jabra BT250? Are you using that?
