Backup cameras?

Anyone have a suggestion for a backup camera to get on amazon to go with an navtv allgig?

Thanks all!

I picked up this one to pair with a rearview mirror monitor:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

It has a standard RCA jack for video output, and it's supposedly waterproof. For $12 I figured I wouldn't cry if it crapped out. Well, after a year and half of excellent service it's started giving me problems (not providing signal when I first start up, crappy grainy signal, blurred image, etc).

At some point I'll pull the connections apart to see if it's just a wire that's come loose, but I have a feeling it's just the camera giving up the ghost.

Thanks for that, Jon. Saved.

Are you running a forward facing camera as well?

Stretch, it will but you have to either have the 730 star-scanned at the dealership to activate the reverse camera or you have to buy a lockpick or NAV-TV unit to make it work. Unfortunately you can't just plug in a camera and have it work.

WhiteJK - I have a couple of them but haven't gotten around to installing them yet. Not exactly a high priority but I'll get them on there one of these days.

I know your talking about back up cameras but when I get my lift and bigger tires with the full size spare tire on the back I have been looking into getting the RubiCam Camera. Its a live feed system basically like a rear view mirror and it comes with a display screen. you could get a non dvr version and the dvr version up to 4 cameras on it. I am planning on using it for my full time rear view mirror and completely replacing my rear view Mirror.

I bought a couple:

and also

The first one I am not impressed with and ended up removing. The flush mount works great. I think its the same one that Jon has.

I should clarify. I had them both mounted. One lower flush on the bumper and one upper on the tire carrier at the same time. I was toggling between both of them and found the flush mount to have a better picture. The second reason was when using it as a rear view mirror when driving it got a lot of movement as opposed to the flush mount which was a lot more stable of a picture.
