The video monitor offers a clear picture and even works at night. Although night vision is a little creepy, Carters eyes are all black on the video screen, but at least I can still keep an eye on him.
You can adjust the brightness of the video screen so that it isn't too bright for night time driving. There is only one way to install the video monitor; it has a suction cup base, which you can easily take the video screen off, you can also move the screen to the left or right so that both the driver and passenger can view it. The power button is located at the top in between the other buttons. Easy to turn on and off all you need to do is press the power button for a few second to turn on or off.
I have had this video monitor for about a month and a half, and never once has the video monitor or camera fallen off.
When Cloey and Carter were infants we had a mirror that would be suctioned to the back window, be had to angle it just right to be able to see them in our rear-view mirror. The mirror would fall off all the time, which was more of a hassle than it was worth. Then we got a mirror that was bigger, and had a velcro strap to install it to the head rest of the seat where they were siting. We always had to have a piece of clothing in between the mirror and the headrest to make the mirror at the right angle so we could look in our rear-view mirror to see them. Both of mirrors didn't allow us to view our babies during the night or see them with such clarity during the day.
