Ordered this camera on 6/2/11. Installed in a 2005 Camry XLE connected to a Pioneer DVD 4200. Installation fairly simple. I found the camera to be fairly large for what I would have liked. I ended up taking off the chrome piece above the plate and cutting a slot in it so that I could recess the camera a bit so it did not look so out of place. Still sticks out a bit more than I'd like, but does not look too bad. Came with enough wire to hook into the front of the car. Have the module mounted in the truck behind a panel. Camera picture is good. I found that in bright sun you can get quite a bit of haze/wash out on the picture. Still viewable fine, but a bit distracting. Also, with the sun hitting the bumper of the car I can get a sun spot glare dot and line from the reflection off the paint. Still see behind no problem, but leads me to believe the cameras ablity to deal with light conditions is somewhat limited. Night viewing with reverse lights is super. Have had the camera a while now and (knock on wood) it is still going strong. Have washed the car by hand with lots of suds and wash mit, been in pretty good rain, ice/snow and has not developed a problem as I've heard about other cameras out there. Overall I'd say I'd buy it again for the price. Considering getting a Tacoma as well and installing the same head unit. If I do, I would not worry about getting this camera for that as well.
