Backup Camera Recommendation for a Vehicle with a 4-Way Trailer Harness


Hi, I am looking for a back up camera, just like Hopkins Backup Cameras - HM50002, but with 4-way flat connector. All I see is wireless cameras and I would like to buy it with a wired connection. Thanks,

The reason reverse cameras like the part # HM50002 are available for vehicles with 7-ways and not 4-ways is because 7-ways have a reverse light circuit built into them which makes them easy to use for installing the camera since that circuit is already there. 4-ways don't have reverse light circuits so a camera designed for a 4-way wouldn't be as practical.

You can still install the # HM50002 on a vehicle without a 7-way though. You would just need to hardwire the camera to the reverse light circuit.

I attached an install video that shows this camera being installed on a vehicle without a 7-way.
