Considering a rear parking camera - after advice please


Distinguished Member
Hi folks,

We got a new Vauxhall Mokka last year and at the time I turned down the built in rear view parking camera as I felt we had already splashed out enough on optional extras however after a year its apparent I should have got it as someone in my household cant park.

Its now too late to have Vauxhalls own model installed in the display unit of my car, so im looking at alternatives. I promised myself long before I discovered AVForums that I would stop buying cheap Ebay Far East electronic tat that never really works aswell as its supposed to.

Ideally I would like something that could use my smart phone as the display but a quick search on google suggests there isnt such product?

Can anyone suggest something thats relatively easy to set up, wireless if possible and generally reliable? We have audio parking sensors so just a small display showing whats behind would be ideal.

It seems the sort of product that ebay is flooed with, but I would rather pay a little more for something decent than a dodgy import with hopeless instructions etc

Thanks very much
