What is the best reverse camera and monitor? Should it be wired in or wireless? Does anyone have any recommendations? I'm looking for good quality vision on both camera and monitor and discreetly placed so it doesn't look too out of place..

I fitted one in a number plate surround and wired it to the reversing light to come on when reverse is selected . It wirelessly connects to the monitor at the front removing the need to run video link wires up the van.
The monitor sits on my dash and I wired the power in through a switch. When I select reverse I switch the monitor on to see reverse view. I ran the monitor feed wires in above the headlining near the courtesy light .

Rather than the reverse light switch ours is wired to the side-lights. So we can have a view to the rear at any time we choose.

This is interesting, 2 different styles. So with the wireless one have you ever had a problem with signal?

Also what make, models did you both buy and was it some where like Halfords or Ebay?

I bought mine on eBay , not sure of make. Image is usually very good even at night. never had a problem with wireless.
Like the idea of wiring it in to side lights as you can see what's following you.

Ours is WiFi and struggles to maintain a good and steady picture - so nothing to recommend, sorry.
Be careful not to overhang the rear number plate - can be a source of complaint at MOT.

If you search 'reversing camera', you'll find a post that I added pictures of our camera and set up to our stereo. Had it for a few years now and not had any issues. Smile
