Replaced my Sony backup camera
« on: September 24, 2020, 10:43:09 am »
We bought our 2013 PC 2350 seven years ago this month from its original owner that had only used it eleven months.  It was without blemish and we have loved it for seven years now.   From the outset I was displeased with the factory installed backup camera.  This "option" was about a $1,000 on the retail PC list for the vehicle.  It was, to be honest, a sorry camera/display  IMO concerning resolution and field of vision (yes, I tried to adjust it on numerous occasions) was not adequate.  The screen was also smaller in the Sony compared to the new wireless display.  In any event, I replaced it with this  model:

Now, I know many or maybe even most will argue that hard wired is a better system and I have personally had two hardwired systems and this is my third wireless system in small motor homes over the last 25 years.  I will report that the new wireless worked on a trip earlier this month without any jiggle or problem and the resolution and field of vision was excellent.   I can't believe I waited this long to replace the Sony.   By the way, the camera and transmitter are integral and one piece in this camera, unlike some wireless models where the camera transmission is from a separate device. 

If you read the Amazon reviews you will find those that the camera performed well for those who were pulling  fifth wheels as well as motor home users.

I had the same issues with my factory Sony back-up cam system. I replaced it with a wireless system from Tadi Brothers. This made a world of difference. I can see things behind me much farther away and in much greater detail, while backing up of driving down the highway. No delays, buffering or any other annoying loss of visuals - just a perfect image at any rate of speed. The system I purchased is capable of accommodating four cameras. At some point in the future I may add side view cameras.
