Jensen replacement ideas???? Help?

of course, working fine as backup camera but after storing for a month, only get weather channel. Thinking of getting one from Wish or Walmart that has camera capability. Why can't I use that with some sort of switch so the right/left cameras will also operate on blinkers? Much cheaper than buying a new RV replacement one?

Also are there any RV apps that you can use for GPS and stream into radio instead of spending all that $ for GPS separate unit like Garmin????

Think you could download onto phone or something. Gotta be a way, come on techies, help me out here as I know only what I want it to do but no clue how to make it happen!

thanks in advance

We’ve got an iPad with cellular. Great mapping and directions.

However, I know / worry that it doesn’t take into account things like height, weight and carrying propane restrictions.

We use RVParky on the iPad, which I think does a good job of mapping the restrictions...

I mounted an iPad on my last MH. Used it for a back up camera, streamed music to Bluetooth that I connected to the couch surround system and used CoPilot GPS for navigation. Stored a ton of my own music on it, could communicate with email, etc. Turned out to be a great all-in-one solution.

Any radio with video input will work as a replacement and you will retain your current backup/turn signal camera functionality as the "switching" is done by an external switchbox. The only connections for this to your radio is an RCA feed and a camera trigger.

Is my radio/camera of choice.

The above are the secondary apps on it. My primary screen is in my thread somewhere, you'll have to look through it.

Primary apps are: Sygic rv maps(gives an alarm when a museum or antique store, or a couple of hundred other choices, is within a proximity we choose), Google maps, radarnow, i-exit(this app is how we found Beaver Taco in Beaver Utah), Rvparky(when the river campground we wanted to use was flooded this how we found a super clean rv park with just five spots total)

I made a mistake on my radio review. It DOES run i-exit. It was my tablet that wouldn't run it.
