$77 on ebay. Does anyone have any reports about these?
Are they easy to install?
Have you fitted one to the back of a Hilux, if so where did you actually put the camera?

Hi Wato35. In my humble opinion they are next to useless as they are subject to interference.
Go the hardwired type and save your money.

I had a very cheap wireless system & it had no interference & performed faultlessly!

I don't have a Hilux but had a hardwired, Ebay bought, camera fitted to my new BT50. The monitor is mounted on the dash and the camera is mounted behind the caravan.
I also have a factory fitted rear view camera fitted to my numberplate (rear). The monitor is in the mirror.

Have 3 cameras mounted on my travelling rig. Not a hi-lux but utes are all very similar.

One hard wired above & behind the tow ball. Great for coupling but not much else. Have to be in reverse to work.

One wireless on the rear of the caravan & the other wireless at the top & middle of the canopy. All work fine with very little interference. We found when mounting the wireless ones that they worked best with the sender mounted as close to the screen as possible. The best position was under the dash but we ended up putting it under the passenger seat. As said little to no interference.

Dedicated dash mounted screen for wireless cameras. Just switch which ever screen needed, on. In dash unit can handle main screen & 2 auxillaries but find dedicated screen more convenient. The camera on the canopy replaces the internal rear vision mirror. Not legal but better than nothing.

All bought at Jaycar, Total spend around $500. Dearest being the in dash unit.

'Wireless' still means running power and initiating power (from reverse lights) to the camera and then power to the screen and receiver, the only wire you aren't running is the VGA (the one that carries the video signal). This is the important one! I have both and hate the wireless one and will now run the VGA cable direct to the reverse camera.
