back up camera
« on: November 30, 2014, 08:07:10 PM »
I have reently purchased a 2005 23' Class B+ motorhome and love it, but it didn't come with a rear view camera.  Any suggestions as to a good one to buy?  I also was wondering if there is a device that would transmit image wirelessly via Bluetooth.  I have an Ipad and of course a smart phone.  I saw one that had GPS built in as well, but can't remember who it was.  Any input will be graciously accepted.  Happy Holidays!

Try here for lots of info ... www.rvcams.com. There are wireless cams available but not sure about Bluetooth but it does have a very limited range. Many have reported problems with the wireless variety though.

Recommend you get one that has lines on it, both for distance and for where you are located in the picture.

About $150 will get you a 7" monitor with camera that has gps, bluetooth, dvd player, and lots more on
Ebay. Just search "double din camera".  you can probably find one that will fit the opening where your current radio is.  And for a few dollars more you can get a frame for the dash so it will appears as close to factory install. Of course the cheaper ones are running windows CE but Android is available but will cost about $100 more.

I started life with nothing and I still have most of it left.
