I purchased this camera with the TOP-043LE Pop up Monitor. They work great together. The picture is top quality and the viewing angle is plenty good. You really don't need instructions to install this camera, just common sense. Connect the red wire to a back up light source, the black wire to a good ground and the video cable to a monitor and you are done. Everything else works automatically.
This is what I wrote about the monitor:
This monitor is truly 'Plug and Play', there is nothing to adjust or fumble with. The installation is simple enough, just hook up the built-in positive wire to the back up light circuit and a negative wire to your vehicle ground, then insert the video cable to the rear camera video cable and you're done.
Normally you would use the back-up light circuit as a connection. In my case I use this monitor as a replacement for my rear view mirror, therefore I used the accessories circuit as my connection.
Another nifty feature about this monitor is that it has two video inputs. You can actually hook up the 'A' input to the rearview camera and the 'B' input to another source such as a DVD player or another rearview camera at a different angle. When you engage your vehicle in reverse, the 'A' input takes precedence and when you disengage reverse it reverts to whatever was being played on the 'B' input. All this is done automatically. I am using the Safesight SC0301 License Plate Camera with this monitor, they work together well, although you can use any camera.
These monitors (any brand) are really great when used as a backing-up assistance device. Not so great at replacing your normal rearview mirror as I did, specially at night. Other vehicles headlights get in the way of seeing clearly.
Anyway, this review is about this particular monitor brand. I think it's a great buy, I like the foldaway feature and it displays an excellent picture. I highly recommend it.

I bought this camera,in a bundle with the 3.5 inch monitor. If you can install a car stereo then you will have no trouble installing this camera. The camera works fine, colors are good and night vision decent. I have a Mazda sedan and don't really need a backup camera but since it was so cheap and since I have a little trouble judging the back of the car (and I like gadgets). This Camera is a great bang for your buck. (Posted on 6/28/13)

Because my in dash unit had the input for one I decided to hook this camera up to it. I have a grand prix so it's not like I have a huge truck. But the windows are tinted dark and sometimes it's hard to see at night. Well it works. I didn't expect anything other than a picture and it's actually a little better than that. The night vision with my backup lights are more than enough. I do recommend a noise filter like on another review. Really sharpened up the video noise. (Posted on 6/28/13)

CAMERA WENT BAD LOST COLOR. TECHS THERE WERE HELPFUL AND EXCHANGED THE CAMERA WITH NO PROBLEM. THE ENTRIE SYSTEM IS GOOD FOR THE PRICE. IT IS VERY HELPFUL IN BACKING UP TO TRAILERS AND BACKING OUT OF PARKING LOTS EITHER PULL IN OR BACKING IN. THIS WORKS MUCH BETTER THAN THE WIRELESS. HARDEST THING WAS RUNNING THE CABLE. THE NIGHT VISION WORKS REAL WELL AND YOU DO NOT GET THAT WITH THE WIRELESS BACKUP SYSTEM. AS LONG AS THEY STAND BEHIND THE SYSTEM AND REPLACES THE DEFECTIVE PARTS IT IS A REAL BARGIN.

I bought this camera along with a 4.3 inch monitor because i just needed something that works in my car as I have a tough time with my rear view. I wasn't expecting anything particularly amazing but it does have a sufficient viewing angle for me and the infrared light do their job. Definitely worth a look for anybody looking to save a little without feeling like they sacrificed a whole lot (Posted on 6/22/12)

Question:

will this camera work with a Hopkins smart hitch system? Hopkins Smart Hitch Backup Camera

  • Posted by Store Owner on Thursday, March 6, 2014

    I am not familiar with that system but if it does have a video input this camera will work with it. This camera has an RCA video cable and is compatible with any monitor that has this input.
