I am putting together my system and i'm looking at the boyo vtl375 rear view camera and i'm just wondering if anyone else here has a similar camera installed. My concern is that i have LED tag lights and i'm wondering if they will blind the camera if i install it there. I'm going to angle it down so that i can hitch my boat on my own, but just thinking it may have some glare from the led tag lights....thoughts???

Boyo 425 here (~$50 off ebay). In the daylight its fine, even looking into the sun. But at night my tag lights do cause some glare. I even though about tinting those lights just a little to cut down on it. I would assume led would make it worse, but maybe the whiter color won't be as bad as the yellowish I have. I am going to get brighter back up lights so that might help also. If you get it, let us know how it looks.

BTW: the camera angle is wide/large enough to be pointed straight back and still see the hitch.

I did an aftermarket nav swap into the stock bezel. Used a magellan unit to display. Picture is great. Turns on whenever I go into reverse and I have a switch to turn it on anytime.

I have the wireless backup camera from Peak mounted in my license plate frame. It works well. The 7" LCD sits in the pocket on the side of my center console when not in use. When in use it fits perfectly right in front of the Navigation screen.

i'm plugging mine directly into my Kenwood DNX-6960 when i install everything, but the only thing i haven't bought yet is the camera. I want to make sure i will be able to see back there if the tag lights will be pretty much pointing right at it.

I ordered one to mount under the bumper. Its got guides on it as well. I plan on plugging it directly into my Pioneer X920BT.

I recently bought a cheap backup camera with night vision off ebay for about $25 that mounts to the license plate and I think it works great. It's not perfect by any means at night but it still looks good. I have mine connected to my Garmin Street Pilot that i have in the factory navigation location and set it up to automatically turn on when I shift into reverse.

Can you see your hitch good with that camera? My main purpose is to be able to hitch up the boat by myself. At this point i'm thinking i may just get a flush mount camera and mount it in the tailgate below the handle.

The plate cam position can be hard to use for lining up a hitch. Its hard to judge the distance at that angle. I installed a pioneer cam under the handle. The angle is wide enough to see above the horizon and down to the bumper. The camera sit flush with the handle.

No problem seeing the hitch. The lens adjusts up n down to get the angle your looking for. I usually have my tailgate open with my bed extender so I didn't go with the tailgate camera.

My license plate frame camera mounts using the top two bolts of the license plate. With it I can see the top of the ball and that's on a ball mount with a 3.5" drop.

I have a Boyo license plate frame camera and I love it. The picture is crystal clear night and day and I haven't noticed any glare from the plate lights. I did get moister in mine though and it became completely impossible to see anything through it. I called Boyo and within an hour had a return number. I packed it up then about two days after they got it, I got a tracking number for my new one. Waiting for that to come in now, should be here Monday. Great customer service!

Yup, that's pretty much what mine looks like. Oh and by the way, KUDOS to Boyo customer service and warranty division! I got my camera back yesterday, mounted it up and it works just like it did when it was brand new. The picture quality still surprises me every time I see it. Crystal Clear.
