    Rear View Camera with Monitor

    Been thinking about adding a full time " Rear view camera" with a small monitor for added safety with what's going on behind you (lane changes, maybe someone a little too close). Have seen dozens of front/rear cameras with recording + monitor systems but, not sure if you can use them strictly as a monitor without recording.Not really worried about recording and more interested in full time monitoring.
    Found a system, down below, and might give it a try and looking for something somewhat unobtrusive (they also sell a pop-up monitor).
    Anyone using something like this? :033:

    Canes1, I would have thought that with this device it's another way of being distracted [not seeing what's happening up front]. I appreciate one needs to know what's happening to the rear as well, but I was taught [many years ago] to "ALWAYS" do a head check before changing lanes even after checking the mirrors.
    In fact in my previous profession [now retired] as a firefighter, and a senior driving instructor with the Metropolitan Fire Brigade in Melbourne, Victoria. Whilst driving a fire appliance you are required to do a mirror check, all rear view mirrors, every twenty seconds. Helped to know what was "under your wing" so to speak.
    To this day I still perform this procedure while riding or driving. Seems to have worked for me. Cheers.  :821: :158:

    Completely understand and would continue use mirrors 1st, do head checks 2nd. Would NEVER solely depend on a device as describe above and ONLY use as a third safety option.
    Only reason I ask is you see people adding stalk mirrors and blind spot mirrors to their bikes, so why not add something that views up to 160 degrees behind d you! :084:

    Maybe you could use a microwave radar .

    For a while I carried a 9-inch monitor in the cameras I installed. In the end I took it out because it is very annoying to have to take out the monitor every time we stop.

    I found a picture of when I was wearing the monitor installed on the TTSE.

    9" monitor a little much for me. The system above has a 3.5 display and would be the ONLY other gadget, other then the gps on the bike.

    9 inches, to see an image perfectly is ideal, 3.5 inches, if we have a certain age, we do not see it well.

    I carry the microwave radar and when I have a vehicle behind it visually warns me with left and right LEDs.

    A rear view monitor would be useful when pushing back to park in a tight space (such as between other bikes), while still being in the saddle. Maybe I am of that "certain age" whereby my flexibility is not what it used to be  :084:
