Going wireless for me meant less headaches and less time fitting

I bought the gear off Ebay. Just a pop up screen, and a camera kit.
Hard wired the screen, and the receiver feeds off that. Then wired the sender and camera to the reverse lights. The sender is tucked up inside the rear bumper.
Camera above the number plate.

yep, I like wireless....but sometimes wireless isn't good and won't work at allfor instance in winter when your back door/rear bumper is fully frozen and temperature below -30C

Default How I did it

I mounted the camera inside, on top of the window... Great place though.
Benefits: lens always clean, no drilling, no wire (Wireless transmission)

Greetings from Winnipeg Semco,
Thank you for the excellent write-up on your backup camera installation! It was very helpful to me for installing my new Stereo radio/DVD/GPS/Bluetooth Head Unit (HU) from Eincar that included a backup camera. Instead of mounting the camera below the spare tire, I purchased and installed a HDE license plate mount camera which works great and didn't require any drilling. The Eincar HU labeled a Brown wire as the Reverse (trigger) wire to connect to the tail light to turn on the camera when shifting into Reverse and the Pink wire labeled Parking Brake was grounded to the HU to permit the DVD player to work while the vehicle is in motion (may be illegal).

When I had the interior passenger side rear panel removed to install the backup camera wire and trigger wire to the tail light wiring, I noticed clear plastic tubing that appeared to have a clear liquid and a spring routed inside it that ran above the tail light (visible in your photos) through the accordion grommet and into the rear door hatch. At first I thought it may have been for a rear windshield washer, but I don't believe my 2011 GV has a rear windshield washer (never noticed a spray nozzle). Would you or anyone else on the Forum know what the function is of this clear plastic liquid filled tubing?

Thank you again for all your efforts, detailed information and photographs, they are truly appreciated!

The clear hose is for the rear washer, it is integrated into the third brake light above the rear window.

Thank you for your response! I discovered the rear windshield washer today as I was fiddling with the wiper controls at the steering wheel. We just got the 2011 GV very recently so still discovering all it's features and options.

Now just have to figure out how to wire the steering wheel controls to the EinCar 6.2 double din Autoradio hopefully without an adapter as someone else on the Forum has mentioned.
