    wireless is very convenient and easy to fit.....if you can find a 12v power supply for the camera at the back end !!!!!
    monitors not a problem wired from dash wiring.

    to be honest they are a waste of time in reallity....far too much RF interference causing poor picture quality.

    better with a hard wired system and a bit of work hiding the wiring.

    They do suffer with RF interference but are usually usable, however somewhere in France, I was trying to reverse but was getting what looked like a french soap opera on the reversing monitor. Thinking about it it was probably one of those video repeaters which work on the same frequencies, as do walkie talkies, cordless phones, wireless routers and wireless burglar alarms/cameras etc etc)

    On the whole amazing they work at all, but they do (most of the time)
