The wireless backup camera can be mounted on the back of any vehicle and Garmin says that it is rugged enough to soldier through the “harshest of weather.” If the camera is wired to the vehcile’s reverse lights for power, nüvi 2798LMT can then automatically display live feed from the camera when the car is put into reverse, it would cut off the feed when the driver shifts back to a forward gear.
