    Fitting a cheap China reversing camera ought to be the way to go. I am having similar issues with my 450 Cabrio where rear vinyl window has gone milky white. Got a reversing camera ready but need a dry day.

    But without the big screen radio I need a screen somewhere and there is nowhere to put one.

    Tolsen,

    Care to show us the results (& intimate detail) of your reversing camera set up?

    I have this feeling that my kid would benefit one if only to keep the smart(s) in brick scrape free condition, the car I'm looking at tomorrow (Red A 450, 2007 vintage) has a tinted rear window also.

    kid is deaf & not the best eyes, so i'm thinking kindest thing is to get a decent / capable reversing cam set up... maybe in both 450's if I end up with the red, she's somewhat keen on the red one's character & number plate which reads "RED" too.
    (plus it has air con, & m/media screen so you just know that's getting snaffled by wife & daughter whereas Kretck does not).

    cheers.

    Tolsen have you succumbed ? ( hopefully only a Lidl bargain too many & not Covid19 )

    The android "pumpkin" screen apparently is set up to activate in reverse gear so I just need a recommendation for a decent one, any spec detail / brand that offers better clarity & components than others worth knowing about? ...the rear window glass is heavily tinted.
