Rear view cam

Looking to replace my old black and white cam with something more up to date in color, that will fit in the dash,. I pulled a new cable, then a new Voyager dash monitor. Still a terrible picture and too bright to have it on at night while driving. Hit me up with your ideas.

Try the Rear View Safety site:

https://www.rearviewsafety.com/

They have many cameras and also entire systems.

About the best on the market now is the Total Vision system:

Total Vision Products:

The camera is infinitely moveable (within the limits of the stops) from side to side and up and down, from a dash mounted keypad. But, itís also the most expensive. I have it in my coach and love it.

I realized that my Garmin 760RV gps has a camera input. Not looking to add another screen if possible. It is not HD compatible, so it requires an NTSC camera input. I see RVcams.com has a camera that should work at $135.00. RV Cams Color Backup Camera..... Includes 65' cable and RCA Breakout Adapter

No reviews that I can find, so I'm a little leary of ordering sight unseen. But then they have a 30 day return.

Then I found this Voyager cam on amazon https://www.amazon.com/Voyager-VCMS1...ustomerReviews might be a better deal as it at least has a brand name attached. And It is $133.94 no shipping with prime.

Ole-

Our motorhome came with a B&W tube-based monitor and a B&W tilting camera. I removed the monitor and fed the video signal directly to the Garmin RV760 GPS. Tim at RVCams.com advised me on the correct cables to get (one from him, one from Garmin). I suggest you call him; he knows his stuff: (225) 261-9946.

By the way, I lost the camera tilting function when I removed the monitor. No big deal, though. It was nice, but not essential.

I noticed the same thing. When I replaced my old Panasonic B&W camera with a color, I installed a switch so I can turn turn it OFF.

Ended up going with the RV Cams Color Backup Camera..... Includes 65' cable and RCA Breakout Adapter . Plugged into my Garmin RV760. Works very well with a very clear color picture. Only issue it that you need to go back one screen to get to the button to view the camera input, so two button pushes, disappointed that button is not on the current map screen. Fortunately I have a spare RV760 (thought ours had been stolen, it was just misplaced for 6 months). So I am going to suction cup it to the old TV monitor screen as a dedicated unit for rear view only.
