    I wouldn't go with a web cam for rear view.
    1- Slow.
    2- Wouldn't cut it under low light conditions.
    3- For best performance, you need CCD not CMOS based camera, only stand-alone true camera will have CDD.
    4- You have to have your carpc on before you can actually see the picture, that is any where from 45~90 sec of delay. Actually, you have to have a PC to use it.
    5- A dedicated camera is almost on all the time.

    There was an excel ant post here the other day that covered the subject, look around, it is helpful.

        Slow slow.... an USB2.0 webcam is perfectly suitable : 30fps @ 640*480 steady.

        CMOS sensor are well, crap... Cmos sensors. As KingTut said, CCD rules.

        Webcam have a narrow view angle, roughly 40. Saying the rear mirror is for exemple 5*21cm, the rear glas 1.6m*40cm, that gives a rough 20 view field. Simple geometry tells your rearcam shall be located between the front seats (for a small car).
        Real rear cams have a 120 view field.

        So, it seems an apple Isight is the way to go... except for the view field, drivers,$$$....
        Now Galileo is real. Muhahahahaha :p

          Why not just get one of those rca surveilance cams from frys? They have them for around $50. You can wire it into one of the inputs on your liili or whichever screen you have. Then with just the push of a button you have rearview cam. It doesnt need to be software based.
