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

Don't forget that your smartphone has excellent quality HD imaging when used in combination with a high quality camera. Image latency doesn't have to be a problem.

Just spent the last couple of hours messing with my Garmin camera. Jury rigged some power and got it working. Backwards picture is going to take some time getting used too. Problem I am having is deciding where to mount it, get power and still get the transmitter as close as possible to the front of the trailer. Really do not want to drill any holes if I do not have too. Thinking the license plate light might be a good place to tap power. It would be nice if Airstream could of left a little slack in the wiring. Not much to work with as it is.

I had an upside down picture.
The only solution I could come up with was to disassemble the camera and turn it over.

From what I understand while discussing this option with the dealer when ordering my 2017 F250, it's a wired camera at this point. Comes with the camera in a pkg from Ford with I think 60' of wire to run and tap in to truck. Sends feed to built in monitor. Apparently there is a lot of discussion to try to get a wireless module, but all talk at this time.

AWCHIEF,

I recently completed a Garmin bc30 install in my '07. Don't have time to get into details right now but if you'd like my install experience let me know i'll detail later.

Has anyone been able to compare the quality/resolution of the 5" wireless Voyager to the 7" wireless Voyager? I've used the 5" version on my FC but always hoped it had better resolution. On my new trailer I would consider a 7" if it's better quality or if there's another benefit other than display size. Thx

An update - I tried hitching with my GoPro hero plus model - mounted on the propride hitch using a simple zip tie mount (removable zip ties)

It worked great - small delay so you take your time and it worked great no problem.

I have almost nothing to compare this to.
