About the Brandmotion CRFD-7744
This Brandmotion rear-view camera comes equipped with two universal mounting options.
Keep your factory look
Brandmotion has made a sensible back-up solution for vehicles without an in-dash display. If your vehicle features a wedge-style rear-view mirror or fits a Brandmotion adapter (see Accessories), then this may be the system for you. Brandmotion's rear-view camera comes equipped with two universal mounting options to give you a wide-angle view of what's behind you. LED lights make backing up at night or in a dark parking garage much easier.
Check out your new mirror
When you shift into reverse, your new rear-view mirror will show you a 3-1/2" full-color view of what's behind you as well as parking lines (if equipped during installation). It disappears when not in use, giving you a fully functional, sleek rear-view mirror. You'll find all the wiring harnesses needed for installation, but some wire-splicing may be required, so if this is your first install of this kind, you may want to consider a professional installation.
Note: A rear-view camera provides an additional view when reversing your vehicle. It is intended to be used in conjuction with your rear- and side-view mirrors to give a fuller picture of what's behind you.

Brandmotion CRFD-7744 reviews
The actual mirror and back up camera are pretty good, the installation instructions were semi difficult, but I understand as this is a universal product.
Pros: decent quality picture, all the parts needed for the install were included.
Cons: because it is a universal product it took some research to find the correct wires to tap into.

Rear-View Mirror/Monitor & Backup Camera Kit: The Brandmotion CRFD-7744 rear-view mirror/monitor & camera system allows you to add a backup aid to your older or newer vehicle. The Brandmotion CRFD-7744 includes a rear-view mirror/monitor and backup camera, along with all the necessary wiring harnesses and mounting hardware.
Note: This rear-view mirror/monitor & camera system is meant as a backup aid only; never solely rely on the rear-view camera when backing up. In addition to using the rear-view camera, always look behind you to make sure everything is clear when backing up your vehicle.
Vehicle Compatibility: The Brandmotion CRFD-7744 rear-view mirror/monitor & camera kit is designed for use in many Honda, Toyota, Hyundai, Ford, Nissan, and Chrysler vehicles.
Rear-View Mirror/Monitor: The included rear-view mirror/monitor replaces your vehicle's factory rear-view mirror. This rear-view mirror/monitor features an embedded 3.5" LCD screen on the left-side that provides you with a view from the included backup camera. When you put your vehicle into reverse, the display will automatically turn on. When not in reverse, the screen completely disappears letting you utilize the entire mirror portion. There is also a manual dimming function on the rear-view monitor/mirror. A ball-&-socket mechanism allows you to adjust the angle of the mirror/monitor for better visibility.
Backup Camera: The backup camera installs on your vehicle's rear license plate and displays what's behind the vehicle on the included rear-view mirror/monitor. The camera features a CMOS full-color image sensor. The camera also features a waterproof housing and an anti-fog lens. The 170° wide-angle lens provides excellent depth of field.
Park Assist Lines: The rear-view camera provides parking assist lines on the screen of the rear-view mirror/monitor. These parking lines are there to assist you when backing up into a parking space. There are two vertical lines which help you judge the left and right edges of the parking space and your vehicle. There are also 4 color-coded horizontal lines that are used to distinguish how close you are getting to the end of the parking spot - Green (Clear), Orange (Getting Close), Yellow (Very Close), and Red (Stop).
Note: You can remove the Park Assist Lines by connecting the camera's two green wires together.
Mirror or Normal Image: By default, the backup camera displays a "mirror' image on the rear-view mirror/monitor. You can change this to a "normal" image by connecting the camera's two white wires together.
Mounting Options: The rear-view mirror/monitor replaces your vehicle's factory rear-view mirror and simply mounts to the same existing wedge-shape bracket on the windshield. The backup camera can be mounted to the rear license plate of your vehicle or simply surface-mounted using the included brackets.
Wiring Harnesses: The Brandmotion CRFD-7744 rear-view mirror/monitor & camera system comes with three wiring harnesses. The backup camera features an attached 28.5' harness, wile the monitor features a plug-in 6' harness. These two harnesses plug into either end of the included 22" extension cable. In addition to the plug-in connectors, there are two red power wires, two black ground wires, and one green reverse wire that will need to be hardwired. The two red power leads need to be hardwired to +12V switched power in the vehicle, while the two black ground leads can be simply grounded to the vehicle's chassis, and the green reverse lead should be wired to your vehicle's reverse-lamp circuit.
