    Lets see those rearview camera mounts.

    I want to install a rearview camera and not really sure where to mount it. All the cameras I see are really large. I would like to see a few of your mounts to get some ideas.

    At first, I tried installing mine in the trailer receiver, but with it pointed parrallel to the ground, I didn't have any good way to judge distance. I then moved it to the top of the tailgate, pointed down. Now I have a better perspective.

    Good Luck.

    You may find holepin cameras (some of them are smaller than 1cm). The difference is about the IR illuminators... the infrared leds (night cams) would take space, if you put just one diode it wouldn't light anything in the night, then more are needed = bigger camer case. If you want a small (and working) solution, go for a normal cam (no infrared illumination) and "hope" that you rear gear light is enough to be caught by the cam (it is not a human eyes, a camera is less effective in thed darker), go for a 0lux (about 0.2-0.3 effective) cam if you'll find one for a good price.

    I've got this one ( Pioneer Universal Rearview Camera NDBC1 ) mounted just above my license plate on my Mercedes Benz GL450. You can hardly see it. Best part is that it comes on automatically when you put the car in reverse. It's wired to the reverse lights which is all the light you need. Looks fantastic at night. It appears to be smaller than these other units posted.

    Here's the one I installed in my car. Very small. You can't even see it unless you're looking for it.
