    Anyone installed them on their older model vehicles? Want big viewing screen and ease of installation.

    That won't help you when you are trying to hook up the trailer. Or the kid or the bike directly behind you. This feature is one of the better automotive enhancements.

    As you get older you will find that yes it is harder to turn your head back to look! My wife's vehicle came with one and they are very useful.

    Kids getting backed over is the reason these are equipped on all newer model trucks.

    I had never used one up until a few weeks ago. It’s my favorite feature on my new truck.

    I have never had one, or used one, until my wife's car came with one. Nice.

    I got a wireless unit for my 2013 truck. Power for the camera comes from the trailer plug, screen plugs into the lighter. Takes me about 1 minute to set up. Makes hooking up to the trailers very nice.

    Not what the OP is looking for, just a 3x4" screen, but it was cheap and works.

    They're nice but it really throws you for a loop if you have one vehicle with and one without.

    I had one on my tailgate on my new truck. I loved it, but lost it to a gooseneck. Can't stomach the price of fixing it. But I love the cargo camera for hooking up the gooseneck. It was something I made fun of until I had one. My truck has a big screen, small screen seems useless with the.

    Can't help on the aftermarket but I'll say in new trucks the ram screen is way better than the f-series.

    I don’t use the one in my car. I miss the one in my last truck, made hooking up trailers a breeze by yourself. I am having one installed in my 2010 Silverado in a month. Totally replacing the stereo since the factory one sucks balls.
