I have used a mirror and a rear facing camera.

I actually prefer this:

The camera does not provide any depth perception, and the mirror aiming from the top, does so. I imagine I could get used to the camera, (used it on a friend's truck), but the mirror works perfect for me.

I've been using one for several years. Once you start using it, and you get in another truck or car, you'll miss it. Invaluable.

I use the setup from Vizual Logic called Hindsight, linked up above by another member. The installation looks OEM.

Here is something close to what I have. Mine is a wired unit so I don't know how well this one would work.....get a color unit!!! When mounted on my plate the ball is shown dead center of the screen.

Depends on the truck and how everything is built. The most common place we put it is behind the license plate. We build a bracket to mount it there. We then drill a small hole in the plate and mount the camera flush to the back of the plate. (I don't want to hear anyone preach to me about drilling into the plate, we shouldn't be smoking either) Anyway, makes for a clean stealth looking install. Remember, if you can't see it there's less chance of it getting stolen.

We've also done some dual camera set ups. One in the bed for a Gooseneck and one on the back for the bumper hitch. We use a dual mode screen and then switch back and forth between each one. Pretty cool.
