Default Backup Camera on 2005

I have just installed a VR3 camera on my 2005. I wired it into the rear window defrost circuit without difficulty. This allows camera control through the button on the steering wheel. The fisheye lens can be overcome with practice. As a matter of interest a 41 inch tall child standing directly behind the car would be invisible to the driver no matter what he did with his mirrors. Of course this situation improves with range but even at 6 feet the family cat might not be seen!

Default Backup Camera

A VR3 is a wireless camera to assist in reducing or eliminating the blind spot behind your car. They are available in Canada through Canadian Tire stores and other outlets for about $100. EBay would be another source.
