#121 of 139 Rear Camera for Navigation System, 06 Yukon Denali
Mar 29, 2006 (1:27 pm)
Can someone recommend a rear camera system for my 06 Yukon Denali that will utilize the monitor of my factory Navigation System. I plan to use it to hitch up my boat trailer in the dark/rain. I have found one unit called the BracketCAM, but it runs $700, and I was hoping to get into something for less.

Sorry to be so late responding. This is the first time I have visited this site this year!
I mounted the camera on the vinyl bumper cover behind the license plate. I cut out the "C" in Michigan at the top of the license plate and have the camera looking through the hole.
I made a small clamp-on aluminum bracket to minimize hacking on the car.
The installation is nearly invisible--you have to be looking for the camera to see it.
I found that a tiny tab added to the top of the license plate bracket eliminated a bit of fogginess at night, coming from the license plate light. (A bit of electrical tape on the light lens would have been nearly as effective.)
Routine car washes has kept the lens clean and it has required no additional attention.
I hope that your experience with the camera has been as good as mine!

Do you use your camera for hooking up a boat hitch? I'm wondering how well it works for this. I will gladly spend the money if it does what I need it to do (hook up my boat trailer at night), but I'm hesitant to spend the money and then find out it was wasted.
Which camera are you using? Thanks for the info...

Sorry to check in so infrequently.
I have never used the camera to align a trailer hitch, but would expect it to be extremely effective if it is mounted behind or near the license plate.
I have been impressed by the width of the field. As you back up to another vehicle parking, you can see the complete front end until you are within a couple of feet of it. If you can't see it all, stop!
Best of Luck--Bill
#125 of 139 Parking Sensor
Oct 19, 2007 (6:16 am)
I have intention to install on the back bumper of my car a sensor that detects the obstacles; the last time I was reversing I did 250 $ of damage, therefore sailing on internet I found two typologies of sensor: one with four ultrasonic transducers, and another with only an aluminium tape. Owing to the fact that I have not intention to do holes on my bumper I would prefer the second invisible solution. For this reason I wish ask first a your opinion.
Here is the link of the producer: http://www.proxel.com
Waiting for anybody who can give me an answer.

well if you are only going to back into things that are metal, probably a nice solution (assuming it works as advertised).
What about that neighbor kid?

The one you posted looks pretty good, but I didn't see where it was being sold in the US or a price.
And the distance it shows is awful tight.
80cm is less than 3 feet.
You might take a look at this one.
It is a license plate frame unit that mounts easily.
At 6' distance, the sensor will be active in a 6' area.

We use Ecco smart alarms or 600 series on all of our dump trucks.
Most of our drivers like the Smart Alarm SA917, because it tones down in quiet areas.
And they have a lifetime warranty.
