The Peak Wireless 3.5-Inch Back-Up Camera System lets you genuinely see what is behind you–even if it is in the blind spot under your back window. Now you may recognise for sure if there’s a car, bike, or child behind your vehicle before backing up. This easy-to-install system includes a color camera unit that attaches to the back of your license plate. This camera comes equipped with a 2.4 GHz wireless transmitter that sends video to the 3.5-inch color LCD monitor that mounts on your dashboard. The scheme offers a wide 110-degree field of view, and the camera is weatherproofed for a long life. It’s perfective for cars, trucks, SUVs, RVs, and trailers.

Not enough signal strength for my pickup
The unit was a breeze to install on my crew cab pickup. Major problem, though: the transmitter does not have enough signal strength to make it to the cab without noticeable interference. I spent some time moving the transmitter around to eliminate the reception problem, but no luck. Only when the transmitter and receiver were within about 5 feet was the poor signal eliminated. Too much metal in the way, I suppose. The interference is an annoyance, but not enough to send it back.
Also, finding a place to mount the receiver is a problem. Since it is only used briefly during backing up, it needs to be mounted someplace other than the windshield. They need to come up with other mounting options for the dashboard. The camera coverage and screen brightness are good.

Didn’t know what I was missing
By G. J. Wolf
My new car has a built in back up camera. Once my wife saw it, she insisted on installing one in her minitruck.
This one fits the bill – good screen size and nice picture. Wireless so I didn’t have to run anything from the tailgate to the dash.
Picture is nice – occasional interference from other wireless 2.4 stuff, but not really annoying. If you’re in reverse the interference disappears when your picture comes on.
Installation hint – get a black license plate frame and mount the camera to the frame with 3M trim tape. Looks much cleaner than mounting the camera directly on the screws. Field of view seems OK.
Can’t comment on durability – only had it less than one month.

Great if it never rained
By Daniel Palmer
I purchased this camera with the intent on using it to back my truck into tight spaces and for hooking up my trailer. Well it worked great until it rained. Water got into the camera and now I can see very little. A water-tight water proof model would be great. I would recommend not buying this unit.
