Anyone installed a Garmin BC 35 in a trailer? Or have experience with Garmin cameras using a GPS as the display? Garmin claims the BC 35 will work with my RV 890 GPS unit as the display screen.
It has a wireless transmitter than you can install either 5 feet from the camera or use buy a 50 foot extension cable.
Was thinking about mounting camera on the license plate bracket and get 12v
power off the plate light wiring. Garmin claims 45' reception between transmitter and the GPS unit which in my case is 40' away... So might not work, but Garmin in my experience is very conservative with their specs.
If the 40' distance for the transmitter doesn't work; plan b could be mount the camera where the factory camera is mounted above the rear window, use the existing camera power wire and then if needed mount the wireless transmitter somewhere near the front of the trailer rooftop using the extension cable. In theory it should work.
Any prior experience with this would be great to hear about.
Tired of the poor quality of the factory backup camera and not connecting much of the time...
