Do you really need a rear view camera for the night time? Headlights throw light far enough for me to know when they are approaching. Rear view cameras only work at night when there is an extra light source, otherwise all you'll see is black.
You are correct in the "opposite view" that the camera would produce on the screen as it was very tricky for both my girlriend and I on both our cars to get used to. It took me about a week or so to adjust, and she just has hers on when in Reverse, but yes something to consider if anyone is looking to buy this product. We've had our setup in the cars for at least 4 years now, so it's natural looking at a screen at something behind us.dubthang said:Often there is a delay in your judgment because your brain is trying to process what you are looking at since you aren't looking in the direction of what is going on. That isn't to say that it is always like that. One eventually adapts to the process.
I would invest in lights and safety vests for greater visibility. They even have air horns for bikes now. Dodging an idiot motorist could cause greater problems at speed since you may end up in an area where other drivers aren't expecting you to be.
