Default WIRELESS Backup Camera Systems?

The thread on backup cameras reminded me of a 48 Tudor I saw at a local cruise-in a few weeks ago that had a WIRELESS backup camera setup with the camera part of the license plate frame and the monitor (4X5?) stuck to the dash with some sort of suction device. The monitor was powered with a plug-in cord to an outlet under the dash which made it easy to take down for shows. As I recall the transmitter was in the trunk behind the rear seat. According to the owner he leaves the camera on while driving and can see almost 150' behind him with this setup. It looked like a slick installation. Has anyone had any experience with these wireless units?

Sounds interesting. I may contact Garmin GPS and see if they could make a GPS like the one I use with a back up camera. Maybe they already have one? G.M.

Here's one that's already available.

I bought a wireless one a few years ago and put it on a van I had. Most auto stores sell them for around $30 (?). Activated from the backup lights but probably could work off a separate line to stay on whenever you switched it. Very small sending unit (2x2x1/2) in the rear that can be easily hidden. 12 volts though.
