Peak backup camera

I'm looking to add a backup camera to my 2012 Nissan Frontier. Anybody have experience with the Peak brand, 4.3" specifically. I have an aftermarket Bluetooth Sony radio head unit that my phone connects to. I hear that Bluetooth can affect wireless cameras since they both operate at 2.4GHz. Looking for some real world experience to see what luck others have had. Thanks!

I bought the peak brand and returned it 3 days later. hooked it up which was easy then I tried using it what a pile junk everytime i pushed the gas pedal the picture would get the fuzzy white lines so bad you couldn't even see what you were doing. I then thought hey must be getting some electrical noise interference so I added some chokes and that didn't even solve the problem. Now I'm looking for a new back up camrea for the new rig. Got my eye on the rvs systems but don't want to spend the money however you pay for what you get. So in the end I'll probably end up with the rvs in less someone can vouch for some cheaper model. Fyi stay away from peak wireless. ..

I had a peak and it worked fine for me but would not work from the back of my 33' trailer so I ended up going with a hard wired system..
