Re: back up system, camera-monitor,
I'm very comfortable using the mirrors for backing up. At one time, I used to drive 10 wheel dump trucks and different tractor trailer set ups.
What I'm lookung for is better rear view that the mirrors provide. I'm guessing that one camera with 120 degree view would do alot to augment the mirrors. And, that dual rear cameras would expand the rear view coverage and fill in the blind spots.
So far, it seems as if the cameras are either composit video or big WiFi cameras.
Many of the cameras are water proof, but not the monitors, displays. My guess is that since all I want to do is look at the monitor, not have to hit any buttons on it, I could just stick it in a plastic box.
