GC Overland 2003 reversing camera

I'm thinking of getting a wireless reversing camera for my car, mainly to make hooking up to my trailer easier.
Does anyone have any recommendations?
I have an XDA2i and a TomTom 510. Can I use either of these as a monitor?

I might get this one JUST because it has a WJ Laredo (like mine) on the package!

Haven't dealt with them myself...just happened to see this one today in Autozone while I was ordering parts for my WJ.

Once I install my headunit, I want to add a reverse camera as well. The main motivation for this is, like the OP, that I want to be able to see the trailer hitch when backing up to a trailer.

For that reason, I'm hesitant to use one that mounts on the license plate, although maybe it'll work if it's a fisheye lens / angled down enough...

I used a hitch cover that slides in the hitch and locks with the hitch pin. I just drilled out the proper size hole, but I want to move mine to right on top of the hitch.

I mounted my wired camera right beside the hitch. I also spliced power from my amps remote wire so I can have it on anytime not just when I have the jeep in reverse.

I run mine pretty much all the time too... I can see the front of a car on the screen when I can't see them in my mirrors.
