Not enough signal strength for my pickup
on September 21, 2010
The unit was a breeze to install on my crew cab pickup. Major problem, though: the transmitter does not have enough signal strength to make it to the cab without noticeable interference. I spent some time moving the transmitter around to eliminate the reception problem, but no luck. Only when the transmitter and receiver were within about 5 feet was the poor signal eliminated. Too much metal in the way, I suppose. The interference is an annoyance, but not enough to send it back.
Also, finding a place to mount the receiver is a problem. Since it is only used briefly during backing up, it needs to be mounted someplace other than the windshield. They need to come up with other mounting options for the dashboard. The camera coverage and screen brightness are good.
