Has anyone mounted a full-time, wide angle, rear view camera? I already have a back up camera in my 2019 Tacoma but what I’m looking for is a camera that will essentially replace my rear view mirror. My GFC is almost done and will have no windows. Has anyone found a camera/display they really like? A quick search on Amazon found this: https://www.amazon.com/BOSCAM-Laminated-Anti-Glare-Display-Streaming/dp/B0814M47K8 but I was wondering what other solutions might be out there. Thanks.
Once I have a rear hinge solution, I plan to work on this.
Im using a MyGeckoGear Infiniview Light - https://www.amazon.com/Mygekogear-Infiniview-Screen-Rearview-Starvis/dp/B07RS5CHGV
I used the machined 90 degree mounts from GFC and the angled hinge mount that came with the dashcam.
Look at the 2nd pic in this post for what that looks like:
@riz_atx Exactly what I’m looking for. Just found out today that my camper is ready (#850, just about 7 weeks ahead of schedule), so I’ll be off to Belgrade by the end of the month. Your photos are excellent, but once my camper is installed I may have a few more questions for you…
All good man! Ill be here
@riz_atx I’m looking at your instagram pics and I’m trying to follow your wiring path. It looks like you are coming around to the passenger side, going up to the cab and then I’m not sure. One of them looks like you are dropping the wire down between the front of the GFC and the rear window but the next looks like you drilled some kind of hole to get the wires inside the cab.
But wait! There’s more!
- What’s the big fat thing I presume to be some sort of antenna?
- What are those clear plastic clips your are using to hold the wire called?
- Was the 25 foot length that came with the unit enough or did you by the 40 foot extension?
Wanting to revive this thread hoping there are more options out there.
I have the commercial camera from camerasource… works amazing and I can run it constant or switch it off at any time…
There was a thread about this recently, but I can’t find it. I ended up buying this:
It’s been working well for me for almost two years. Lately I’ve been getting some water intrusion into the camera on really wet days, but other than that it’s been fine. There are a lot of options on Amazon for this kind of thing. Many price-point/feature tradeoffs.
Brand motion is the best I’ve found. I’ve ran them in my vehicles, and they are rad. They have a front facing camera built into the mirror that records. So, you get a dash camera, also. I had their newest version in my Jeep. Super easy install, and great clarity.
Not sure if it’s what you’re looking for, but I installed the Anytime Camera on my ‘19 Tacoma in prep for losing my rearview mirror since I decided against windows for security/durability. It came with a front facing camera as well which is nice for parallel parking and having just made the trip from NC to MT and back I can say it pretty much made up for a lack of rearview.
I am selling one that I never used…I prefer no rear view mirror
I like this camera right here:
@Mike_GFCUSA yep, that’s the Brandmotion one I mentioned above. Excellent camera. That would be my number one choice, and they have great customer service!
@artieTwelve here is a link to the Brand Motion site. They have universal and vehicle specific. This link is for universal.
