Backup camera, which one???

Way too many to choose from.
Priced from $20-200.
Very mixed reviews as well from everything from this site, eBay, and Amazon.

Im hooking this into my Pioneer AVH head unit.
I dont care if the camera has the grids on the screen or not.
Mainly looking for reliability, and decent night vision.

Also, I see a lot of these cameras have a "brain" unit that is on a relatively short wire, which for our trucks wont reach the cab. Leaving the brain under the chassis some where, not very reliable.

What camera do you have?
What do you like/ not like???

Check out crimestopper.com, I have the sv-6705 and I made the mount for mine. It came with a wire long enough to make it to my head unit from the tag mount I made. Also they come with the proper hole saw if you wish to mount it in your bumper. I bought mine from sonic electronix for $35.

Have you thought about upgrading to a 08-10 tailgate with the camera already integrated?
