This tiny camera supplies a great view. The camera is truly 170 degree view. I had my g/f stand off about 5 to the side of the truck at only about 1 behind and the camera was still able to see her. The hardest part about mounting the camera was picking the right location. As you'll see from the pictures, I think I found the perfect spot where it is not easily visible keeping thieves away, yet, allow me to back up to my trailer and get close enough to mounting without having to get out of the truck 2-3 times. It is also protected by the receiver bracket putting it out of harms way. The instructions were of very little to no help, however, it was very easy to install. I already knew where the power was going to come from, reverse light wire, and the ground was easy enough. The yellow RCA cable connects to the monitor. It was long enough, with plenty to spare to run it from the receiver, under the truck (2000 GMC Sierra 1500 Ext Cab) tucking it away along side the chassis, and routing it under the cab. I ran the RCA cable into the cab through the shifter linkage bushing, under the carpet, up the inside of the left side panel next to the hood release, and up by the fuse panel along the rubber molding and squeeze by dash panel to mount the Monitor on the dash. Backing up to the trailer or into a parking spot has never been easier. Good luck

This is a great little camera for the price. The two big reasons why I give it only a 4 star review are as such:

#1. It's kinda bulky. Even when tucked up under the tag light housing of a Ford Expedition it sticks out and is hard to miss.

#2. The image quality is great and you do have a wide field of view, but it is NOT 170* as advertised. It is only 135* as stated with the spec sheet that came with the camera. It's still wide enough to pick up items 2 feet away from the rear bumper off to the side of the vehicle where your door mirror will see it.

Overall I'm happy with it. It provides me a pretty decent video feed of what's behind me and there was JUST enough cable to reach the head unit in my Ford Expedition. If I had an Excursion I would have had to add an RCA extension

Works exceptionally well, day or night. In color and highly detailed . There are many cameras to select. I didn't want to get a cheap unit that would break or fail. So, I purchased the Esky EC170-08 because it has a metal housing that is chrome plated and is waterproof. I mounted it under an aluminum flange, just above the license plate. (I found if I mounted the camera with the camera bracket down, the picture will be upside down). I didn't realize how useful it is to see behind my truck, when backing up. The real reason I installed this camera is for easier hitching to the travel trailer. It's like cheating. No regrets. Now, My wife wants one for the car.

The image produced is clear, and even the night view is good. Angle of camera is wide enough for viewing objects to the sides, and the parking guide lines are nice to have. I would reccomend this product as a low cost alternative to some of the high priced options. Note that it is made in China, however the packaging is very professional and the overall quality of the device looks good.

::Ok an update after 6 days on the car. The screws that hold the camera body together have come loose, and the screws for the angle adjust are loose and will not tighten. I will remove the camera and attempt to fix these issues over the weekend. A couple quality improvements would make this a great product::

I have this unit installed on a 2007 Nissan Titan. The cables that came with it were long enough to run under the vehicle and through the firewall to my head unit. I read some of the other reviews before purchasing and planned ahead of time to seal the unit with clear glass silicone available at my local auto parts store. I did that and it has worked good now for 3 months... in stormy weather and dusty Oklahoma roads. The picture it produces on my pioneer head unit it good and color with the distance bars that help. I would definitely purchase again and recommend for the price. later.

These are great little cameras when used in conjunction with Fifth wheel travel trailers. I have installed one of these on the last two units I've owned and they have work flawlessly.Yes you have to run power to the camera and coax cable to the cab but when you consider the cost difference over a wireless system, I saved about $700 for a days work.
These cameras make backing solo into camp sites a very easy task, and it's also good to see if alouf people are walking behind your rig (as they will do) as you try to back down (had this Happen).
I found it reassuring to see out the back when changing lanes during heavy traffic but fundamentally rely on mirrors, it just a good back check.
A small 6 to 7" monitor works great on the dash to make the system complete.

Installation was quick and easy. Replaced old license plate camera. Connections perfectly mated with existing connections with no rewiring needed. Adjusted mount to position camera from just above license plate. Picture provides distance lines which assisted in aligning camera and will assist in backing up later. Unit appears sturdy. Time will tell if it is weather proof. Camera that it replaced was having a fogging issue that made it difficult to view objects at times. Updated 20140718. Camera replaced was an aftermarket license plate camera. There are 2 leads, 1 RCA for the video feed and 1 lead for power. Rained hard 3 times this week and camera still not fogging up even though it is mounted on the rear bumper of my 2005 Silverado.

This camera was just what i needed for my Silverado pick up.I was having a problem judging the available distance from my rear bumper to an object behind me and had been coming close to bumping into things. With the camera and the monitor I can now back up more safely.The installation was straight forward with no problems. I would recommend this product highly!

I needed something for my F250 xtra cab after backing into my wifes car. The picture is great and for the price I don't have any complaints. Really don't know how it can be improved, picture is wide and clear. Works for me. As a precaution I did silicon where I thought it might be a problem. Time will tell. So far so great.
