If you don't have all day and lots of patience, get a professional to install this device.

This video camera actually installs pretty easily if you know what you are doing. I didn't, and the instructions are minimal, so I will share what I learned. I found instructions on how to remove the interior panel on the tailgate of my Jeep Grand Cherokee online. Ten push-pins that had to be removed in a certain order. That clued me in that a screwdriver would not be enough. A $8.99 set of nylon fiberglass tools designed for door panel and trim removal helped me to pry up the panel without damaging the paint. Removing a bit of trim above the license plate with a nut driver revealed a small hole that allowed the wire from the camera to slip inside without drilling.

The electrical connections are simple enough, but making a T-connection to the back-up light wires with those fancy 3M taps needed both a firm squeeze with pliers to pierce the insulation and a bit of electrical tape to keep the spade connectors from falling out. Then I bundled up the excess wiring and attached the transmitter to the tailgate frame with some more tape. Replacing the tailgate panel was much easier than taking it off. (Don't do what I did, test the complete transmitter/receiver link before replacing the panel.) Actually the hardest part was learning how to assemble the receiver cable to the 9055 GPS unit. If you did not insert the cables and the GPS mount in the correct order, the mini-usb connector could not be fully inserted and easily falls out of its socket. Since I had to learn all this the hard way, what should be a simple 60-90 minute install wound up taking me all afternoon because I removed and replaced the interior panel three times before fixing all the problems.

Now that it is finished, my wife is ecstatic about how easy it is to see behind her when backing up. I am happy too. Everyone should have a backup camera!

I recently bought a Dodge Grand Caravan C/V (cargo van), and between the blacked-out glass, steel screen reinforcement, and the wall that keeps things in the back from flying up front, backing up is a real adventure. Adding a backup camera makes things a LOT easier. Once hooked up, putting the car in reverse changes your Magellan GPS from well, a GPS, to a video screen that shows everything behind the vehicle. Its jerky refresh doesn't quite give real-time (10-12 frames/sec?), but it's more than adequate to keep from running over something in the driveway, or backing into a lamppost.

Yes, you can buy a similar camera for a lot less than through Magellan, but the camera is the easy part: attach it to your license plate, and snake the cable through the rubber thing that runs between the door and the main body. So, now what? You have to get the video all the way up to the driver's seat, where it matters. That requires pulling up side panels and floorboards, and will probably take all day -- if you don't break something. Fortunately, the Magellan Backup Camera is wireless. This means you only have to connect up a small transmitter to one of the backup lights using provided clips, and then attach it to someplace out of the way. At the other end, you replace the GPS power adapter with a new one with a Y-cable, and attach the receiver behind the GPS. Plug everything in and you're done!

One note of caution: This camera is only compatible with a few Magellan GPS models, mostly the larger ones. It requires an A/V input. My GPS is the RoadMate 1700, which has this input.

My husband bought a new Ford Transit Van with no windows. After a few days, we knew we needed a backup camera. Did some research and found a 7" Magellan GPS and this back up camera that would work together. The 7" display was perfect for both applications. Took it to Best Buy to install (less than $100) and they mounted the camera on the windshield and threaded the normal plug into the ceiling of the van so we eliminated the cord dangling from the GPS. This allow us to use the plug for other devices. The camera was installed connecting to the back up light. There is a little delay when backing up because it is wireless, but the view is great. Unfortunately, the license plate is on the left side of the 2 doors, rather than your normal center on most vehicles, so it is not giving a perfect view, but still great. With this setup, I use the GPS most of the time, but when in reverse, the backup camera automatically comes on. Now I might drive the van once in a while without the fear of running over something or someone.

Got the back camera today and installed it in about an hour. Others commented that "the manual was useless". Seemed pretty straightforward to me. Requires some basic mechanical skills and half a brain. Fired it up, worked perfectly and gives a much better picture than the last back up camera I installed. Works very well with the Magellan 1700 Roadmate. It takes about 4 seconds for it to transmit from the camera to the receiver once you shift into reverse, which is perfectly acceptable.

This wireless camera works great when paired with a Magellan 9055-LM and was easy to install. The camera works nice day or night.

I bought the magellan wireless camera with the magellan 1700 GPS.
The installation manual for the camera is absolutely useless. It is more like a packing list.
Contacting technical support not any help neither.
When I contact them, all they said was "seek professional assistance", well I am the professional installer.
The worst of it is; The camera is terrible on the low light or should I say useless.

SO SAVE YOUR MONEY AND DO NOT BUY THIS OVER PRICED CAMERA.
VERY DISAPPOINTED.
