backup camera?

Anybody using a wireless backup camera with there TT. I think it would be helpful but where to mount camera and what range for wireless signal and I see inexpensive units on E Bay and ones at dealer that cost 4 to 5 hundred dollars. Any suggestions?

We just got one in last week at our dealership, it is a wireless remote that both pieces have a rechargeable battery in it, the signal range is longer than a 53 foot semi trailer, they retail for $269

Try searching the forum, there are lots of posts on this topic. I think the consensus is the wireless cameras pick up too much interference if you plan on mounting the camera any farther away that the back of your TV.

When backing into my storage unit, I use my iPhone in a ram mount, ipad in the truck, and a very cheap baby monitor app.

I bought one and did not like it. Took it back for a refund.
I have invested lots of time and money in my wife and a set of walkie talkies. They are my back up camera!

I have a set of walkie talkies but I was more concerned about when I am driving. I can't see the people behind me who want to push me and then jump lanes at the wrong time

We got a wireless one from rearsafety. Only used it for the drive home so far but it seems good. Has a mic so my husband can hear me while backing up and you can turn on guide lines which I'm hoping will come in handy when backing it into our storage spot.

I installed a wired one from Rear View Safety.. One cam on the back of the truck cap and one on the back of the TT. No interference with wired units.. Next project might be adding RVS's dash cam & recorder to the mix..
