About to pick up a new off road Coromal in Brisbane can anyone point me in the right direction for a good quality reversing camera one that shows half the screen on the rear vision mirror?? What are the pit falls to look out for?

I would not waste my money on a reversing mirror screen

The camera part cannot overcome the reflection in the mirror.

I have tried all sorts including that and now use a Polaris screen on the dash that supports two cameras.

I even tried getting matt finish plastic film to cover that part of the mirror.
Was not a success.

My Cruiser has very dark tint on the side and rear windows and its still got too much refection for the screen.

Its your money but I would suggest you Google "Safety Dave" or "Sidewinder" and talk to them about it.

My mirror screen is still there but I disconnected the power and just use it as a rear view mirror.

Another thing they are bigger and heavier and on bumps etc they tend to drop with their own weight.

I had to make up a little clip that hooked over edge of the roof console and held the lower edge of the mirror from dropping.

We have a camera on the rear of the vehicle which is activated when in reverse on the screen in our dash (built in navigator)

We also have a separate camera on the back of the van for constant rear vision which is permanently on in a small screen stuck on the windscreen for this purpose.

I find them both great assets when using the van. Small cars can sit close behind the van without showing in any mirrors but the camera sees them.

I remove the extra screen when using the camper trailer.

On the van we have a 12 pin plug with the video going through this connection.
The 12 pin socket on the vehicle takes the 12 pin for the van or the flat 7 pin for the camper trailer.

Lots of possibilities.
