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?

Check out, 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?
