    DRW electronics sell a decent wired kit.

    For some reason your link didn't work for me Alan, but I think this is the site you meant:-

    https://www.parkingcameras.com/store/home.php

    I've got their rear view mirror monitor, clips over the top of the original mirror, works a treat and when switched off functions quite well as a mirror - I've got quite good through vision on my van, so I just have a single camera pointing down at the back bumper. In the usual way the camera and monitor are wired to the reversing lights so they come on when I engage reverse, and off and back to working as a "normal" mirror when driving forward.

    You can fit it to be permanently on whilst driving and connected to 2 cameras so it switches automatically between looking down at the bumper when reversing, and giving a general rear view the rest of the time.

    Only downside with it is that it is bigger than the original mirror and catches slightly on the sun visors on my van, the gap between the driver and passenger visors is narrower than the monitor width. Not a big enough problem that I've ever bothered to do anything about it though!

    I'd fit another quite happily - it's the instinctive place to look and it saves having a separate monitor on the dash somewhere. Only other option I might look at would be if I had a head unit for the radio with a screen that could be utilised for a reversing camera.

    This is the one I've got, but I think they've updated the camera to a newer and (allegedly) better spec since I bought mine:-
