received 2 generic, non-Pyle-branded reverse,mirror-image only cameras (non-selectable). The product was definitely not as described and do not buy from the seller Heracles Trades - they put the Pyle name and model on the bar codes on a bag exterior to the package making it seem like a Pyle product but they are straight up dishonest and scamming. I am in the process of fulfilling the same cameras from Amazon (use the More buying choices) option on the right - costs a dollar more but totally worth not going through the hassle of disappointment and returns so hoping the right product comes this time...if i can update this later i'll do just that and let you know.

Amazon gave great customer service to fix this issue so kudos to Kimberly :O) and the only reason I am giving more than a single star.

Same as other reviews. First I received a generic, rear view only, camera from Heracles. It looks the same, but doesn't have the jumper wires to switch the image or remove the guide lines. Otherwise it works.

Ordered again. This time fulfilled by Amazon. This time I received the correct item, just as described, works great. As long as you get what you're supposed to I would recommend.

I had to buy this as a replacement for one my truck. The first one went bad due to my mounting and the fact that I didn't seal the wire entry. It is so nice to back up to trailers with this.

I ordered two of these from Amazon...first one came with the jumper wires to select front/rear view (mirror image or not) and grid on- or off. The second one externally looked the same with the same mount but it did not have the jumper wires so could only be used as a reverse camera. Not sure if the camera was packaged in the wrong box or what, but these are supposed to be front- or rear-selectable (therein the FRV designation.) Camera works well enough and has a decent wide angle view, but it is very hard to judge distances (proximity) to obstacles. The question remains how well this will hold up over the long run.

Works great. Setting it up was straight forward I like the different mounting options it comes with. The image quality is definitely not as good as the other camera that looks the same but this is the only one I could find that I can set up on the front of my jeep and not have the image mirrored. This does spin in its mount so if you can't get the image straight then just twist the camera around in its mount.

I bought this little camera to mount on my boxed car trailer. Wanted it to be waterproof, did not want to spend a lot of cash, It was cheap enough in price to give it a try, and I am glad I did, It works good.
I have used it on and off for a couple months, and it has held up, so I think I made the right choice.

I purchased this camera to mount on the front of my car. The product title and description both say that it is optional front view and rear view. Well, I opened the box and there were no instructions. I looked at the manufacturer website (Pyle Audio) and they did not have a manual for this model either. I did not even bother installing this and have returned this for a refund. It maybe a good camera and I am sure it would have worked in the rear but for the front installation you need to turn off the mirror view otherwise everything that will be displayed on the monitor will look as if its a mirror reflection which is only good for reversing. Usually there is a cable with a jumper or a loop that you cut in order to turn the mirror view on/off. This camera did not have that. There were only 2 cables attached to it - the yellow video RCA and the red one for power. Also, the image that is shown in the product description is misleading. It shows a blue and a red cable in addition to the 2 RCA ones mentioned but they were not there on the product I received. Also, I did not see an LED for night vision unless it is built into the camera lens itself. I recommend passing on this product and looking at other cameras such as a Lockpick MINICAM221

UPDATE: The power lead WORKS!! You will not to run a separate lead.

This camera has a decent view during the day, not quite the wide angle needed for most that want a 'backup' camera view. Mine will be used for the front of my Jeep Wrangler Sahara to keep me from damaging or rolling my Jeep when I cannot see steep brake over angles-rather than clog the trail getting out to check-this idea seems better...SEEMS being the key word. The first one that came didn't work so that makes a permanent installation (such as drilling into a bumper a questionable commitment in my mind.
Pros: Small, nice mount, decent picture and compact, (waterproof too-if works as advertised), adaptable with exposed 3 wire to reverse angle (make correct for front view, remove park assist lines-most do not have this as such an easy option-just select what view and what you want and wire them together-if not leave them out and cap off).
Cons: must get 2 to have one work-50% isn't exactly what I call assured Quality Control.
