AAA studies have shown that a rear view camera goes a long way in eliminating blind spots behind your vehicle when backing up. The camera improves visibility by substantial amounts as reported in the article below.
“A new study recently completed by AAA (formerly known as the American Automobile Association) is extolling the virtues of rear view cameras, with the group’s research indicating that rear visibility improvements ranged from 36% in smaller sedans up to 75% for hatchback cars, with large trucks and sport utility vehicles (SUVs) scoring in the mid-range of vehicles evaluated (roughly 39% in terms of rearward view improvement.)
AAA said it evaluated 17 vehicles across 11 manufacturers with factory-installed and aftermarket rear-view camera systems on a variety of vehicle body styles to measure the reduction in blind-zone areas as a direct result of using a rear-view camera system.” http://fleetowner.com/blog/study-says-rear-view-cameras-worth-spec
