I decided not to get windows for security and cost, but I was getting ready to set up my stock rear brake light when it occurred to me that I could probably replace it with one of the many rear camera 3rd brake light systems on the market. Ideally, there’s one of these that can wire up to or replace my rear view mirror.
Advantage of these things is that they can record front and rear activity. Every insurance agent and claims adjuster I know owns one of these - for a reason.
Trouble is finding exactly what system will work. Most of the 3rd brake light cameras angle the camera downwards to help with backing up, but I don’t want that. I want the straight back view. Then the rear view cameras that do face directly backwards aren’t integrated to 3rd brake lights. So it’s a bit of a trade off. Wondering if I can combine these two.
Anyone tried this? Specifically for always-on rear view replacement, not just for back-up assistance. Assuming most of us already have backup cameras so that’s not an issue for the windowless among us.
