Default Rear Camera

Does anybody have a pic of the rear spoiler with the camera installed? How is the camera attached to the spoiler?

It is in the center of the rear spoiler, and that is a the spoiler just for the rear camera

My wife's suv has a rear camera, and I'll tell you it's real easy to get used to using it and not your mirrors. I do like it, not sure if I like it in the spoiler though. Ford should make the rear camera standard and find a better spot to blend it in.

A friend of mine has a Camaro with a hitch... I call it the quarter-ton Camaro. Rolls off the tongue nicely lol.

I like the idea, but why on the spoiler?? What if you want to change it? You have to forfeit the camera, and yank all that wiring just for a simple spoiler swap.

Either way, I would rather just have the back up sensors. Less of a crutch, and more of a tool IMO.

Doesn't Volks have theirs pop out of the rear emblem or something?

I don't think id ever buy a rear camera to use on any vehicles, but if it came standard id probably get some use out of it.

I had one on my old car and it was neat for the passenger to watch while I looked to the rear and backed up properly. It's like putting on my seat belt, it's just habit and it doesn't feel right to do it any other way. Now for tight corners on a rig or hitching up to a trailer, whole different ball game.
