Rear View Cameras: What to Look For +MORE

There are many things to consider when you're shopping for a rear view camera. Chief among them is integration with your vehicle, simplicity of installation and quality of video received from the camera. If any one of these elements is weak or absent, the usability of the device falls apart. Further considerations include accessories such as remote controls and anti-theft functionality. Some devices are plain-Jane cameras, but superior devices provide bells and whistles that add to the versatility and value of the unit.
The biggest question on your mind when buying a rear view camera should be "How much can I see?" The answer to that question lies in the resolution of the picture taken by the camera and the size of the screen that displays the image.
