I found the instructions not to be very helpful as they didn't cover the instillation on my truck as to where to place the transmitter for the best signal to the screen. I also found there was no screws supplied with the kit and there was no bracket to attach to the transmitter as the instructions indicated there should be. I also had to make a custom bracket for it as these suction cups never stay attached for very long and the a/c adaptor was too short.

I purchased this camera for my 2011 Chevy Silverado. The license plate camera was easy to install, since I already installed the wiring needed for the connection. The monitor has a good clear picture with color coded distance bars. I am using the power adaptor. I also hard wired the monitor and have the same voltage as the power adaptor, but the monitor does not work. I called the phone number, talked to a technician but he had no explanation on why it did not work or had any help at all.

Installed on my Tahoe when I realized that I can not see clearly behind the vehicle. Having a camera on my Prius has been a safety feature that is appreciated. Directions were clear and shown step by step installation. Had not any difficulty on installation except I cut the camera wire laying under the rear sill plate. Repaired wire easily. Mounted monitor on dash with with provided vent hook...works great. Installed the camera on the rubber cover of bumper to avoid covering license plate.

Good product making hitching up to a trailer easy, and with potential life saving features. However, poorly worded and hard-to-follow instructions with inaccurate depictions make for a very difficult installation. Get some decent installation instructions and the overall product would be great on all accounts -- or have the installation done by a professional.

Nice looking and very good picture with grid. Install was easy but will hard wire to improve appearance . Window mount is unattractive. Chose to mount it on air duct with included hanger

I brought my unit to a local garage to install into my 2009 Tundra. The mechanic is familiar with automobile electrics and knows the Tundra. I did opt to get it hard wired and to have it permanently mounted where the ash tray was. The wiring and mounting of unit was not so much of an issue, but finding a good location for the wireless transmitter took quite a bit of time as it would not work if located in the rear fender surrounded by metal. Eventually the unit had to put under the fiberglass bed liner to work correctly. The install was not as simple as I was led to believe it would be. I ended up spending more money to have it installed than I did on the unit itself. It was my decision to have the unit mounted and hard wired as I did, as I did not want another suction cup on my windshield or cables hanging down over my dash board and plugged into the cigarette lighter. So far, so good. It seems to be working up to my expectation. I have yet to try to use it when backing up to my trailer, but am sure it will be really helpful.

Installation was fairly easy, but the monitor constantly flickers and at times goes totally black. Being an electrical engineer and former electrician I double checked the wiring, but it was all solid. It's good enough to see if there's anything directly behind my Ford F-150 Super Crew Cab, but wouldn't recommend this product if they all operated this poorly. Also, the camera was easily installed on the license plate, but I had to cut off an inch or more from the outside edges so the month and year of my license plate renewal date would not be covered over. Thus, I have hesitated to return this product to AutoAnything...

I see from the reviews that many owners opted to hardwire their wireless backup camera. Is this mostly a cosmetic/appearance issue or does the wireless unit actually perform better when hardwired by a professional? Thanks, GT
