Default Rear view cameras

Has anyone any experience of the Ring wireless reversing camera ?

I'm looking for a camera that can be used as a rear view camera rather than just as a reversing camera and this one has the great appeal over other wireless setups of having the wireless transmitter and receiver integrated into the camera and screen respectively. So it would be very easy to install, and remove from the car when not needed. It also has a relatively narrow field of view compared to most reversing cameras, i.e. 110 degrees compared to 160-170 degrees.

Any comments, anyone?

Yes

Your link didn't work...too many https

I think you meant this one ?https://www.ringautomotive.com/en/product/rbgw430

But sorry I have no experience of them. Sounds good though. And "Ring"do tend to have quality products.
They have not included images of what can be seen on the screen though.
Have you actually seen the screen in person and does it give what you want?

Thanks. I don’t know why my link didn’t work - perhaps because it was an embedded one.

I've never actually laid eyes on one of these cameras so have no idea what the picture quality is like. The camera and the screen are quite low resolution but all I’m looking for is, in effect, an electronic rear view mirror to keep an eye on what’s behind my covered trailer.
