Default GPS Or Reverse Camera Or Tablet?

Debating should I do a reverse camera screen or GPS in my info screen?If I do the reverse camera screen it will be a Nesa,if I do a GPS its either a Magellan or eBay GPS.Asking your honest opinions or I can do a inexpensive tablet.I currently do not own a gps,my wife does though.Which would you choose? If anyone has done this reviews on what you put and a link for purchase would be appreciated.

Personally I'd do the camera. I have gps on my phone so I don't necessarily need it on my dash too.

You could get a new HU that does both

Agree camera. You can get one for a decent price and if you use the NESA with two inputs you can upgrade later with video if you want.

ohhh nice, but I like the camera idea better. We rented a Ford Explorer last year with a backup camera, man that thing was amazing. Especially parking that big SUV. I think you will like it.

It depends what do you do more? Travel to places you don't know or park in difficult parkings? I parallel park every single day that's the only reason I did the backup camera and I love it so much its so helpful for everything, but like someone stated, why not a head unit that does both?

I just picked up a reverse camera at 50% off on Ebay a few days ago. Was $25 all-in. I think someone on the board purchased a very similar, if not the same, reverse camera. So I say, pick up the $25 camera and a tablet.

I'm with Kaygmaxima, if you do a lot of reverse parking, I would go with the camera. If not, I would do the tablet, especially since the phone does GPS.

The kindle I have fits perfect in front of the info screen. Doesn't fall or anything but its 7" I think. Any tablet over 8" Won't fit. Tether your data from your phone and even your phones GPS. I like taking it with me and using it in the ride too. I'm using google maps and Nav tethered from my Galaxy phone.

That Kenwood is insane! I have a garmin and would only trust garmin but considering how that Kenwood comes with garmin GPS and optional camera placements wowwww.

I modded a iPad2 holder to mount to my garmin suction when I go on long trips, music via bluetooth so people in the car can pass the ipad around while i zoom to our destination. which is paradise of course.
