PackRat, where did you mount it exactly? And is the "installs in minutes" true?

The main camera inside the cab is mounted up high on the windshield, so with the visors down (how I always have them), I cannot see the camera. I run the two satellite cameras attached to the underside of each mirror. Cables routed out the doors through the mirror mounts. This part took some time, but I don’t like looking at any wires. Setup was quicker than reading all parts of the owner manual, so very easy. It’s no more difficult than figuring out how the features work on a GPS.

I rarely drive my personal vehicle anymore. But..........YES, It is a very good idea. What do you have to lose. If you plow into someone, and its your fault........ THROW IT AS FAR AS YOU CAN!

Drivers - especially CAR drivers, seem to be getting worse. And the marketing they use is true. Video of someone elses screwup can get you out of a citation or a settlement (and rise in your insurance). Or the flipside - get you in a jam if you're wrong (throw it in the glovebox).
