I see Haloview recommends the remote transmitter for vehicles over 33'. Did you go that way?
Or does the wireless function work fine for the distance of about 40'?

Well not completely "not helpful", but almost. I did spot my left wheel bouncing down the freeway just outside of Tucson, AZ. Aside from that one event I would agree. Trying spot traffic behind you at more than 50' is neigh impossible.

Voyager 541???

Hello All,

Apologies for jumping into the middle of the discussion... but I am having my newly purchased 2014 20FB delivered to the Jackson Center, OH service center this week. I asked them to install the rear camera system... their standard is the Voyager 541.

Is this not a good unit? Should I hold off and do my research?

Excited to join the community... hope to bump into some of you soon. Hopefully not while backing up! LOL

With wireless, the picture quality is good without a transmitter. At highway speeds, I can see a slight lag in the video between the what the screen shows and what is actually happening, like when a car is passing. When backing up, there is no noticeable difference.

Welcome Roger! To be honest, I wouldnít take the Voyager even if theyíre giving it to you for free. Compared to my Furrion S, the Voyager is very 1980s... horrible resolution (esp at night), large and clunky (the housing for the screen is massive and frustrating).

The Furrion S rťsolution is glorious, night vision stellar, and itís streamlined housing is part of my safe operation of my rig instead of a clunky hindrance. Iíd go with the Furrion or Haloview all have mentioned here. Good luck and happy travels!

Thanks. All digital wireless devices have some "delay". maybe a couple frames. At 60 mph this translates to about 15' on mine, and like you say, negligible backing because two frames isn't much at 2 mph.

Mollysdad... that "all digital wireless devices have a lag" is helpful. To me, that means the HaloView is probably one of the best units available at this time. They seem to have very good reviews. They are intuitive and the two cameras work great for seeing what is going on behind me.

Thanks for your input.

I have a Garmin unit, and I've tried to estimate the lag by watching a semi pass in the camera and then see where he is in the mirror. I guessed 15'.
Now that doesn't bother me because I'm not changing lanes with a semi 15' off my bumper!
My camera is wide angle which is good and bad. Good because I can see the rear bumper in the camera for backing, and still see everything behind me.
Bad because things start as a point and grow quickly in the monitor.
I just want better resolution. (720P)
