I have one on my truck at work and its very useful. Don't know the make as it was factory fitted.
What I do know is that it sends its picture to the monitor by radio signal. It has a habit of braking up
just at a crucial moment so if you buy one I would recommend a hard wired one. :)

I put one in as due to a bloody big tyre mounted vertical behind the front seats I couldn't see out, took ages to get used to it as I didn't really trust and a bit crap at reversing down a lane anyway. Now I've had it in a while and trust it I'm happy with it. It's a bit odd as it's wider angle than a mirror. Also worth mentioning if the suns bright behind you it gets overexposed and harder to see a distance, mind you mine was a very cheap one off eBay, sure you get one a bit more quality.
