Oh, man, I hate those "unbiased reviews" of products given to them for free at a discount. Every time I see one of those on Amazon, no matter how well or poorly it is written, I mark it as "unhelpful."

Oh, and I almost never buy that product.

While that might be a good idea, that means the signal has further to travel and it might introduce some delay. It also appears to be a Chinese company, and the Amazon reviews appear to be mostly from people representing them (poor English), or from people that got a free one for their "unbiased" review. The folks who use the rvrearviewcamera.com solution seem to really like it.

I don't have either one, and am still researching and trying to decide if I even need one. I've been doing fine without it so far.
Received the Esicam on Monday and checked it out today. 1. It is a magnet in the base which anchors it quite firmly (upside down) on a small steel pad a mounted under the cabinet (camera is pointed out the rear window of a 20' Bambi). Ran down some fairly rough roads and the camera remained in place. 2. The signal I received in my RAM 1500 Quad Cab was with a flaw. Software allowed for me to flip the picture, take stills, and record. The signal delay was unnoticeable for me.

For the price it seems to be a very economical and easily installed solution.

I think you meant "without a flaw". How did you power the camera? Thanks.

I did mean without a flaw, thank you.

The camera held power for 5.1 hours on its internal battery. (They say 7 hours in the manual but there is not a monitor.) The plan is to recharge it with 110V plug by sink, or detach and charge with 12V plug by TV.

I appreciate you answering these questions. Do you think the 100 degree view angle is sufficient? Are you using it with an iPhone or Android phone?

Thanks.

The wide angle appears to be quite sufficient for me. The screen causes a very slight "haze" in viewing, but it is acceptable. I am using an iPhone 5S.

Chevrolet has come out with a camera package for Silverados. It has a rote camera that can be mounted on the trailer. Has anyone seen this setup in on a vehicle?

A guy here in the campground has a camera system that resembles the Voyager but with a much larger display screen/monitor.
Can't remember the brand-

The Ford Super Duty 2017's is said to have five cameras with the fifth dedicated as a WiFi rear view for trailer mount. I'm hoping there will be a way to add it to the 2016 without having to replace the entire Nav/screen unit.

I got a go-pro recently with wifi - plan on trying this out - had a small delay - but if going slow doable - unit is a "hero plus LCD" - 200 bucks - did not buy it for this use at all as primary purpose but I'll give a review as such for this purpose here later
