I threw my clip-on away due to that problem. Got a "flat screen TV" and connected it. Dashmount ok against the windscreen. Paid R500 at fleamarket. Works little better but I am considering to throw the whole system out. Not what I expected. I see much further with a tow mirror
The monitor is not the problem. The sun's reflection on the front of the caravan through the back window into the mirror is the main issue. To reduce this you can do the following things:
The rearview camera is a great asset for me and provides me with better vision to the rear when towing my caravan wich is about 180mm wider than a Jurgens. Here are a few things to think about:
John, I agree with what Leon is saying, and would add, I will never again tow without a mirror, if I can help it.
The Penta does not have a back window, I have lost count of the number of mirrors I had, gave a few away after a number of the tie up bands broke. I have moved my camera upwards, just aboth the number plate, and have less glare in the camera now. This, I beleave, is propebaly your problem?
My reasoning is, if the sun reflects into the monitor, it would also reflect into the mirror.
As far as the monitor is concerned, I honestly can't see how the sun can reflect on it, however, if you have that problem, why not try to move it a bit?
Sorry, I need to add, I have a 7" dash mount (non-reflective) monitor.
What if you get a size bigger than your monitor, non-reflective sheet, and just cut it to size with a scissors or sharp blade?
Obviously, this will have to be the soft sheets.
I have a 7inch dash mount monitor, which I have mounted in the centre of my dash, I turn it at about a 45deg angle off centre towards me. Doing this has eliminated most window glare. I have also got a travil blanket which also reduces some glare from the back. I like Leon's idea of puting a coating on the rear window. I think I will go put some 30% smash and grab tint on the rear canopy window.
