backup camera mounting location
 
does anyone have their camera mounted in the back window? if so how is visability at night through the tint? i dont know if i want a cam in the window or a flush cam in the bumper. anything hanging near the plate or on the plate will be stolen. also does anyone have any of the cheap CMOS cams from ebay? CCD cams are all around $100 and i was looking to spend less since i also have to buy the lockpick. CMOS are around $20.

i know someone who put a small cam behind his X5 tinted glass- he claims he can only use it on sunny days or else its pitch black.

why not put it in the third brake light- seems to work fine up there?

cheers bro

Your trying to link the photo from your email account, thats not going to work.

You need to save the photos to your desktop then upload them to a photo sharing site like facebook or flickr.

That just screams "take me" or "move me" if I was some trouble making kid. Any problems with any rocks or road debris hitting it? Anyone steal it yet?
