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.

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.

I think it's most useful for a convertible where the small rear window gives you a big blind spot. It makes parallel parking in tight space much easier. I've found adding one after market can be difficult to do cleanly. I remember a lot of people pulled out the trunk lock cylinder and put it there but now they've eliminated that, and you can only pop the trunk with the fob.

I love it. It makes parking in tight places much easier.

My wife has one on her SUV on the navigation screen, originally I thought it was a gimmic but now I love it. It's easier to use than mirrors, and eliminates the over-the-shoulder-neck-twist-to-make-sure-nothing-is-back-there move when backing up. Wish i had one in my Mustang, but don't have the Nav system and don't like the spoiler setup. Maybe someday when I upgrade the radio... and I find a better place to mount the pinhole camera.

Hey, I have a hitch! It's the only way to get my track tires and tools back and forth without messing up the interior, since it is just too far to drive on slicks.

That's where I mounted my camera as well. a perfect place and you can barely see it (at least on a black car). I did a Ford rearview mirror with LCD screen retrofit, but will probably use the nav screen when I put in a head unit with NAV.
