This camera is priced very competitively and I specifically like that it has such a wide 170-degree view angle. That's really helpful in cases where you may want to have the camera looking in a different direction than the license plate or to help show over other cars.

I also like that there's a model for a full-size car and one for small cars and it even comes with a rain cover. The packaging is also well done so that you can store everything properly.

Now, I have to give a slight disclaimer, there is a noticeable delay between the camera and the image of it on my phone. This is true of a number of other cameras as well, but this one is definitely the slower.

I actually find this to be perfect in the case of the camera looking POAH'S face as when you're backing up her car, there's not a lot of time to second guess her, so I'm perfectly wavering on whether to use a rearview camera or not.

Here's why it's perfect: I'm backing out into traffic, she's all the way at the edge of the road, and there's no time to think about this or do it again. I need to take into account her proximity to the road, as well as other cars and how close they are to each other.

If I just look in the mirror, I'm not going to be able to see that, so there's nothing to do but take a gamble on backing up.

One thing I like about the camera is that it has a built-in GPS system and so you can use your phone as a secondary camera monitor. That's something I like a lot because, as I said, who wants to take a look at their phone while they're driving.
