This review is from: Esky EC170-08 Waterproof Night Vision HD CMOS 170°Viewing Field Car Rear View Backup Camera (Electronics)
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

It looks like they removed my pictures from the site.

Thanks for the description. I want to install a backup camera to help me with backing my boat trailer. Will the angle of view allow me to see the trailer and behind to help backing it up?

Depending on how or where you mount the camera will determine how much you can see behind it. I mounted mine directly under the bumper in line with the tow ball and it is a perfect view to see the ball and hitch. However, having it mounted there, I cannot see past the trailer, but, I can see the full width of the trailer. Lucky for me, I'm pretty good at backing up a trailer. I wish Amazon didn't take down my pix so you can get an idea of how much you can see.

Hi Ice Breaker
I saw your back up camera screen with red/yellow/green line which helps to determine the distance.
Does this feature comes with this camera or screen needed to be have that option.

lines are part of the camera

The lines you see in the screen are features contained in the camera, not the monitor
