On my GQ I mounted the camera at the top inside of small barn door looking out. It's out of the weather and can see from it fine.
It is stuck there, ignore the tape :)

I've been thinking about installing a reverse camera,
Just a thought for now, but I need to fit a wheel spacer so my larger spare will fit on the back door.

Now, I figured, why not fit a spacer with an extendable arm so I can fit a work light for camping, then figured, why not mount the reverse camera next to the light up on the pole?? Shouldn't get too grubby up here, and give you a pretty good view of what's behind.

I thought about that as well but wasnt shaw about the view you would get and how dirty it would get there i suppose no dirter than any where else.

I used the existing screw hole that the cover for the license plate light uses, then went through the grommet that the wire for the light went through. Then it goes through the factory conduit in the door. No extra holes or anything.



Then I use a rear view mirror screen as I can't see out the back anyway I have hooked it up to constant accessory power so it's on when the car is on.

Haven't got one fitted yet, but after plenty of trips playing in mud, muck and all sorts of stuff the back doors always seem reasonably clean... Worth a try??

I've just had some dark tint put onto the windows, so mounting a camera inside the car will mean I wont be able to see very much at all!

My Cam on a Dual Wheel Carier Rear Bar

Here is a closer look of the Cam location in my truck.
As I have a steel rear bar that is also a dual wheel carier I placed it up next to the towbar.
I have had this out 4x4 ing and it still works a treat. Odly it did not get mud on it there. ( flucked that one.

I bought the camera for a Mitsubishi Lancer, a regular place where to put lighting plate
Patrol installed on the same instead of the light bulb plate
on the camcorder itself is a LED light plate
navigator in the passenger compartment set with AV and it brought the camcorder

I've got a camera mounted in the door handle, like some have shown. It goes to a GPS unit that automatically flicks to the rear view when you turn on the camera. If you're going to have a screen for a camera, it might as well do a GPS as well. 2 screens would bug me.

I have one of Dig Options units. from this seller
eBay Australia Shop - DIG Options: Integrated Navigation Systems, Digital TV Receivers DVB-T

Here are a few pics of the unit. It has too many screens to put up on here, but I could email them if you want. Just PM me your email.

Also this unit has twin GPS set ups one for outback running Ozi Explorer and the other is the conventional urban iGO. It also runs WindowCE6.0
Hope this helps
