There must be a problem with your cams.
I have a back up cam in my f150, works awesome and is great for backing up to hook on to trailers ect.. I would not own another truck without one now.
The only problem I have with mine is if the sun is shining just right on it you really cant see anything

I have had the exact same experience as Vette1 my F150's back up camera is the best add on I think auto makes have come up with in a while! I am guessing though that you are thaliking about Canadian tire do it yourself back up cams. Those I dont know anything about.

<div class="bbWrapper">I put one on my Town Car and it works great. Just have to clean the lens once and a while. <img src="/styles/smilies-extra/vette-smileys/Cdnsmilie.gif" class="smilie" alt=":canada:" title="Cdnsmilie :canada:" data-shortname=":canada:" /><br /> <br /> If it's wireless that could be the problem, I did a lot of reading before installing mine and all of the reviews came back negative for the wireless type. It is comparable to a factory install.</div>

Ya it is wireless and it seems any kind of additional voltage (pressing the brake) will cut it out. I will just have to try and trouble shoot a bit more with it. Thanks ;-)

I bought a new CR-V and just had to have the factory gpsr with backup cam. It's great!

Hope you sort yours out.

got one in the Avalanche, only problem is if someone is in the car behind you it scares them thinking you're gonna hit 'em cause you tend to get closer than normal, but it works great!
