Great until it died when it got wet during a snow/sleet storm
Reviewed in the United States on February 7, 2018
This was an easy install to my Pioneer car stereo in a 2008 Ford F150. I mounted it near the tailgate handle which gave a good view of the bumper. This worked for around 3 weeks. Today, it was exposed to sleet/snow/freezing rain, and the camera got completely wet for the first time. Hours after the storm started, when I backed up my truck, I noticed the camera was no longer working. I checked the connections on the back of the stereo and the connectors leading from the head unit all the way to the tailgate location of the camera. All wires are intact. The only thing different was that the camera was frozen by the freezing rain. It seems the wetness and freezing likely caused the camera to fail. I will try to return for either a refund or replacement.
Of note, the item did not arrive in a box. It was just in a padded shipping envelope. I am not sure if that put this electronic item at risk of damage during shipping. Please see my review on the packaging.
