    Backup Camera suggestions for 2006 CRV with offset license plate? Help!

    Hey everyone.

    I plan on installing a backup camera on my 2006 CRV; I'm just not sure which kind to go with!

    My first choice would be a license plate mount for simplicity sake, but because the plate is offset (thanks to the spare tire mounted on the right side of the vehicle), I'm not sure how the image will relay to the display. I'm presuming it won't be centred, but by how much? And will the camera capture part of the spare??

    My other option is to drill a hole and centre the camera in my bumper... But the odd time I have my hitch rack on the vehicle, I'm pretty certain the camera will become useless. Not to mention install will be a little more work, although in the long-run it should look like a cleaner install though.

    Does anyone have any suggestions or recommendations?

    Thanks!

    Offset enough for your bike hitch setup will be fine.

    Hey there! I actually ended up making a little mounting plate to screw the camera onto just above the top right corner of the license plate... so it's mounted to the tailgate plastic. The minor offset isn't noticeable when you're viewing the image on your display, especially since you can (or should be able to) adjust the parking guidelines. I can dig up/take some pictures if you'd like.
