    Default Rear view camera for 2005 Silverado

    I want to add a rear view camera to my 2005 Silverado. Does anyone have any recommendations. My biggest concern is where to mount the screen. Thanks!

    Your best bet is to replace the radio with one that has a video monitor and backup camera jacks. I tried various non radio types and the stink. I got my radio and camera off of Crutchfield and mounted the camera in the space just above the hitch. When you go into reverse the monitor turns on and has a fantastic image. I use it when I'm plowing snow quite a bit. One other thing the wireless camera's they sell are the worst of the bunch. I got electronic interference all the time and it was useless.

    I bought the Pioneer AVH-P3200DVD. The screen is crystal clear, it has a ipod input, sd card slot, mini plug on the front for your music inputs. Great price and easy install. The best part of Crutchfield is they give you all the install instructions even how to take out you old radio.
