    That's really funny. I installed a back up camera as well, and the monitor is in the exact same location. It works great to see who's behind you, and makes it a lot easier to change lanes.

    My monitor install doesn't allow for a tuck away screen. Did you make a mount for that?

    The Magellan GPS came with a pretty good mount intended for windows. I simply used U bolts and plexiglass to create a mounting surface for the window suction cup mounting arm that came with the GPS. The base joint allows for the entire arm/monitor to swing back parallel to underneath the dash so you can't even tell it's there unless you stick your head under the dash.

    wired or wireless camera? How'd you power it and route the wiring? Where'd you mount the camera to avoid head damage?

    Pretty cool!

    They call it wireless camera, but there are plenty of wires, lol. The camera is mounted across the top of the license plate utilizing the same plate mounting holes. The camera draws it's power from the reverse light so it's only on when in reverse ( I may change that and turn it into a switchable rearview monitor ). The GPS/monitor is directly wired to the battery.

    Part 2 of the install (the camera) is forthcoming.
