    surely the light from your reversing lights is enough to show an image of where you're going? The only thing i reallyu want to be able to see is the car i'm parking next to so it's not long distance or anything.

    I've done this on my F150..





    It's one of the eBay ones. They're pretty much just plug and play

    ok, I think I have one final question. If I wanted to run the video through the computer (to record, etc) instead of straight to the monitor with a switch, how hard would that be?

    I see this item in the mp3car store:
    USB Video capture device - KWorld V-Stream Xpert DVD Maker USB 2

    What kind of support is there for this device? Does this make the camera function kind of like a webcam? how about support in front ends like centrafuse?

    Thanks

    does this camera fit perfectly in your hole? i don't want to enlarge my hole just incase i want to put the lock back on.
    Anyone know if getting a CCD camera is worth the $$ or a cmos one is good enough to backup?

    i'd go cmos, ccd is better quality picture (usually), but that doesnt matter for a backup camera

    just get a cheap USB cam, use that, haha, thats what im gonna do

    Sam - Yes, you do need to bore the hole out a little larger... BUT, one would still be able to replace the camera with the lock, and you cant really tell unless you look hard that the hole is a little bigger than the lock

    thanks for your help.. i was looking at that cam too but i guess they are all the same size? I have a $50,000 car and englarging that hole kinda hurts if i had to put that lock back on...
    is there anyone that placed on of these on without enlarging that keyhole? The one on ebayat Duncan electronics don't have the extra rings for angles.. i guess this makes a big deal because you can't buy these after
