The best backup camera there is! I love it!!

By Gragg, February 21, 2018

5.0 stars

Installed on a 2006 F250 super duty crew cab 6.75 foot bed (short bed). I started opposite of what you see in the videos. Started by placing the monitor where I wanted it, then located an access point into the cab (there is an easy access point (large grommet) below the carpet on the drivers side. Very easy to lift the carpet to remove the grommet and fish the connecting wire through to the underside of the truck. From there I fished the wiring on the drivers side all the way back to the 7-way connector, installed the camera, sensors and license plate holder (my backup camera kit did not include the longer screws to attach the camera to the license plate holder (no big deal) bought those at the nearest hardware store. I secured the excess wiring to the interior of the trailer hitch, plugged in the supplied 7-way connectors to the existing 7-way plug and it worked perfectly! Backing up is stress free. When you see and hear the monitor just going into the red I am 1 foot away from the object or car. Night vision is incredible, looks like daylight. The pictures included are of my garage door with no lights (pitch black). I haven't used it to backup to my travel trailer yet but I have confidence that it won't be a problem. So far I love it!

Excellent Product

I can't say enough for the product and the customer service as well. Back-up alarm sensor quit functioning even though camera kept working. They sent out a new one immediately without me having to jump through a bunch of hoops like I have with other companies.

Excellant Product and Customer Service

The first unit I bought worked but flashed. Apparently Dodge changed their back up light voltage and I got one of the old units. Called Hopkins and they sent me a replacement right away. I thought great customer service was a thing of the past, Hopkins proved me wrong. New unit works great. I would definitely order from Hopkins again.

Super Tech. support

Could not get the camera to work so contacted tech support. They asked me to do a couple of tests and then determined I had a faulty connector. Quickly got a replacement, installed and works great, they also provided me with an extension cable at no cost. Excellent customer support!

Just what the doctor ordered

Installed on my 2012 RAM 1500 quad cab, and was able to put the monitor just left of the rearview mirror where you naturally look anyway. Cable was just long enough. I routed it inside the left frame rail, and then up through the emergency brake cable plug. Installation is fiddly, but easy. Not having to cut or splice my stock wires is a huge plus. Monitor is small, but the clarity is very good, and backing up to the trailer is 100 times easier now. Plus having a backup camera and sensors for everyday backing is much better than having none.

It's great and Support is even better

Got the hitch/backup camera as gift. Cable was a couple feet short. I called and they sent one out that day. Once hooked up it did not change modes. I called support and they sent a new one out with a return label for the old one. It works great. I can't honestly say if I was at fault or the first unit was faulty. Unit works perfect and monitor is big enough, it looked small at first, but, it fits above my center mirror and is fine. It works very well even with backup lights at night. My eyes are not as good as they once were so I did have a problem seeing the small indicator marks for adjusting the sensors and camera at the rear. The unit works great and saves me time hooking up to my trailer and is a real aid for backing up. And I don't think you'll find better support...especially by phone with the shortest hold time going.

I installed this on my 2004 Dodge Ram. Installation was very easy. I was a little unsure about the screen size but after using it it is great. Highly recommend.

Works great, but issues with mounting to window

The Camera and monitor work great, I as well needed longer cables and had no issue getting them from Hopkins. The issues I have is the Monitor won't stay attached to the glass. The original sticky pads lasted about two weeks, some aftermarket sticky pads lasted about 3 weeks. I will call Hopkins to see if they have a solution for this.

Excellent System Package

By Harold, June 20, 2014

After ordering the package, I called Hopkins support and they sent me the extensions required for my truck. I was very pleased with the support staff. I installed this system on my 2008 Dodge 2500 MegaCab in just over an hour. I have a custom rear bumper which extends just short of 10" out from the license plate and I was apprehensive whether it would work or not. This system was so very easy to install and works extremely well. The only reason that I give is 4 stars is that the mounting system of the monitor limited me as to where/how I could mount the monitor in the Dodge cab. Other than that, I wish that I had bought this system a long time ago

Camping World Purchase

Saw the back up camera in the Camping World catalog. Purchased the set up and had them install it for $39 - great deal. Works wonderful on my 2006 F-150 Crew Cab with the 6.5 ft. box. Cable was a little short for a top mount but the guys placed the screen in the lower left corner of the dash which is perfect for my needs. This is a great product and will probably save a few arguments with my wife.

I just completed a install in less than 1 Hr on my 2010 Ford F150 Crew cab. Just followed the directions and it was extremely easy. I did contact Hopkins Support and the sent me out free of charge 2 extra length of cables. This camera is awesome work great for tow hookup and also great when normal backups. Highly recommend this unit. Install easy for any novice. Lovin it.

Just wired up!

I got this on sale for a great price. I wired it to a 2013 F-150 Crew Cab 5'5" box. It is amazing that there is nothing to splice and it connects very simply with existing trailer jack. It is a T-adapter that wires between the truck and the connector so both of your trailer pins still work perfectly. I had just enough wire to run the monitor on the driver side dash directly out the firewall and to the rear of the vehicle. If you have a longer vehicle you will probably be short on cable. The monitor comes on when you put the vehicle in reverse and has a great picture on the screen. I had it all wired and adjusted in 1 hour being very picky about wiring and doing it on my back in the driveway! Great product.

Wish these had come out years ago.

I just installed this on a 10' F-150 crew, it works as good as any factory installed sensor/back up camera system. It took about 30 minutes and it was up and running. Love it!

Perfect for Towing and Everyday Use!!!!!

By John R., July 10, 2013

The camera installation at first scared me because I have a 2013 Ram and Dodge has always had a different wire harness than Chevy or Ford but It was a snap. The camera and proximity sensors mount like any other license plate bracket so that was really easy. The supplied Plug connectors is what worried me but I just unplugged the factory plug from vehicle 7 way plug and plugged in the T-Connector which powered the camera and sensors. (no wires for me to cut) Then I just ran the wires under the truck along the frame until I found an entry way into the cab of the vehicle. I than ran the wire under the trim to up under the dash to an exit point that was close to the camera. The camera screen is just the right size and being a full color screen helps a lot. The proximity sensors work great to let you know when you are too close to something. I rate this product 5 out of 5 stars for ease of installation, quality and easy to use.
