Believe it or not I do understand what wireless means.
With a wireless system the screen is not permanently on, (No more than a physically linked system anyway), it activates when it detects a signal from the camera module which activates when the reverse light comes on.
The point of the wireless system is it saves the extra work of trailing a video cable the full length of the car thus making installation a bit easier.

Go for it Tomo.  It allows you to reverse to about 2" from the car behind you (slowly) though at this time of year the tiny camera lens can get a bit mucky down there in the bumper.  Still, one fingertip is all you need to clean it.

Hey guys, this looks fab... I really want to do the whole reverse camera thing but I'm afraid I might fook it up...
Could you take a pick of your fuse box just to show which fuse I need to put the power cable wire in for the screen please. Thanks.

Hi guys I've got the factory fitted one in my car at the moment. It is a much uglier camera next to the boot handle and it is displayed in the rear view mirror. But I've just ordered the fiesta st and I'm contemplating doing this.. Looks great
