I installed this mirror and the license plate backup camera in my wife's 2006 Ford Five Hundred. Having a backup camera in our other car we felt we needed the added safety of seeing what is behind the Ford Five Hundred when backing up.
I chose the wired configuration instead of the easier to install wireless. I had read somewhere that wireless systems can pickup interference. I don't know if that is true, but we chose wired.
Installation took me about 2 hours total. That included removing the back seat, running the temperature sensor and camera wiring, tucking all wiring safely into the floor/door channels and using wire ties in the truck area to keep all wires away from any cargo.
The most difficult part of the install was locating the correct fuse under the dash that was powered only when the car was running and making a connection to it. I found connecting the camera power wire directly into the fuse block was impossible, so I needed to make a trip to the local auto parts store, Advance Auto, to get a fuse adapter.
To make a better water tight installation, I chose to drill a small hole above the license plate to run the camera and temperature sensor wire through. I used a rubber faucet washer and silicon to seal this off and make it water tight. This was a bit more work, but I felt it was a better installation.
The camera works great and the gridlines make it easy to see exactly where one is when backing up. An added bonus was the mirror has a built-in compass which displays in a soft blue font on the right side of the mirror. The outside and inside temperature alternate and show next to the compass.
If you need a backup camera for your vehicle, you couldn't go wrong with this camera and mirror.
