I'm not using one right now. They move so fast that the last one I used would be obsolete now.

If I were looking though, I'd be looking for an HD camera with a fixed external mount, and a 7 to 10" screen. Some of the ones dedicated to vehicles overlay lines that represent the space the vehicle will move into while reversing.

So, as far as your build so far, was this only to pass inspection.. meaning temporary, or is this how you want it?

I've got a backup camera with the overlay lines and I still run into stuff. There's a major depth perception issue when looking at the screen.

I use the Rear View Safety 770613 system. It has a 130-degree camera, but with it mounted just under the middle of the three rear marker lights I can see the entire width of the rear bumper (useful to check for exhaust smoke!) and about 10 feet behind. Top quality, and reasonably priced at Costco. Well worth it.

I have the camera, but use the mirrors by choice. My system will handle a front camera too, but I'm gonna continue using the windshield.

I'm still waiting for autodrive software.
