Back up cameras

I have been reading around online and looked at the key hole setups people have and while it looks neat I don't want to hassle with all that. Has anyone used something like the links posted below? I figure the one in the light itself will look a lot cleaner than drilling a hole in the bumper.

They make license plate frames with the cameras on them. I think those are the least obtrusive.

My friend has that on his and while it works great the thing just looks out of place and like it wasn't meant to be there. I don't want it to look cheap.

I think they all look out of place and added on. The keyhole one is the least of the offenders, but you said you didn't want that one.

I just know with my luck I would need in my trunk and the seats would get stuck and not come down and my fobs would stop working. I need a trunk release button already. I went ahead and ordered the Amazon one. Says it will be here end of October for some reason. I will add photos of it when I install it.

Trunk release button is easy. Just a momentary button and some wire. You can wire it right from the passenger door sill. I don't think I have ever used my key to get into the trunk. It might not even work after all these years.

It is just tap the white/pink wire and run a ground right Boss? I wrote it down a couple weeks ago and am pretty sure that is it.

Yep. I happen to have a custom factory window switch panel so I just wired mine into the up function on the extra window switch.

Only time I ever use my key to get into the trunk is when my battery is removed and I ALWAYS forget to pull the parts from my trunk before taking the battery out.

And thank you boss for mentioning the junction box, goal for the weekend is to hardwire my radar detector. Was planning to yank out the radio and wire it to that ACC...not that this would be a difficult thing to do, but it's also 95* outside lol.

95*??? That's hot? Wussy. We just got down into the 90's and it feels like heaven. I can't wait till I can actually put my top down and drive around. Another week or so I think.

Yea but you have a "dry heat" hahaha. It's actually not bad today, I saw the video of the guy with his fnx at the range "melting" so I put mine in my car over night....went out just now (1pm here) and the car is still cool :/

WAY easier to use an add-a-fuse for the radar detector. All you'd need to do is remove the sill cover, the SJB cover, and the a-pillar cover.

If you want if you have power to your mirror you can tap off of that I belive. I don't have my radar hooked up there but the backlight for my boost gauge so idk if it will mess with anything.

It's good during the day but a little fuzzy at night. But for $30 not bad! Would be better if I was able to angle it down some...

That actually is not bad at all. I will stop being lazy and go that route if I don't like my camera's quality.

Yea for the price it's a nice little camera. I have the pioneer bc4 ($180) camera in my truck and it is much clearer picture especially at night but it was also a lot more money!

I went with the recommended camera for my GPS receiver. Works well and does not look to bad.

From a few feet back.



Up close.
