Backup camera advise

I am using Tomtom GPS and it helps me a lot. The only bad thing is that the device does not have a backup camera feature, backing up is always a huge pain for me . Im looking for a wireless back up camera , do you you guys know any reliable website , and any product suggestions?

Looks like no body has any suggestions,

I ended up ordering this product from Tadi Brothers 7" Monitor w/ License Plate Backup Camera | Drive Safe .

Lets see if it is going to solve my problem. If anyone is in a state of buying a GPS ,I suggest to purchase one with backup camera feature .

Garmin is one of the very few that ties into a backup camera

I had a Kenwood installed with Navigation powered by Garmin that is supposed to be compatible with a back up camera.

If you have a video input on your radio (radios with screens) you can connect a camera to it. I've seen the Ford sync radios have an input and will work with a camera.

I got this for just hitching up. Works great I don't need the wife telling me in 3 ways (fingers , hands and arms all at the same time.) how far I am LOL. Called the Swift Hitch I have to say I love it.

We use walkie-talkies for the backing up procedure.

Or you could make your own. Here's my daughter explaining how:

my only advise is stay away from the units that connect to your smart phone. most of them don't work.

Also, the cheaper wireless systems (amazon and ebay under $200). stay away. I as well as others have had issues with the signal making its way from the back of the trailer.
