I did a google search trying to find out if I bought a bluetooth backup camera will it pair with my Android phone (HTC Rezound)
I want to use it for hooking up my trailer.

Has anyone tried this and got it to work?

Thanks
Hitch

it should pair with it but you will need an Android based app to view the video feed on your phone.

Have been looking all over for an app that can do this, no developers jumping on this ?

I think it would be a huge market

Yes you could buy the camera between $ 50 to $ 100 that will fit your vehicle compared to the aftermarket kits that are out there that will run $ 400 to $ 1700 (OEM) for certain vehicles, that will use the OEM Nav Screen

Not looking to have a gazillion screens in the car, one for each single application.
Lets bring our tablets/phones to good use !

Hope developers are listening, because they could make real good money on something like this

Anyone got this figured out yet? I found this app http://www.appszoom.com/android_deve...fer_byhny.html that might work. but not having any luck finding a bluetooth enabled camera that's waterproof and wide angle that would work for the application. The one for that app is spendy and I don't think it'll work as it just uses an on board battery for the power so you'd have to take it out and charge it regularly and I highly doubt it's waterproof.

I did purchase a cheap backup cam and was trying to find a bluetooth transmitter that I could hook it to either via the cam's RCA output or a 3.5mm jack via an adaptor.

I would love to find an app or have one developed for this that would automatically pair and display the camera once the camera is turned on via the backup lights.
