Default 4100SCB backup camera

Does anyone have some tips/recommendations on installing a rear facing camera on a 4100SCB. We have a Raymarine e series multifunction display that I can plug it into but not sure how difficult it is to run wires or mount (where to mount for best view as i have a dinghy lift on the rear).

Thanks in advance for any info or recommendation on camera types as well!

Rick

They sell wireless cameras that you can use with your phone or iPad. Not sure of the quality.

I bought one on eBay, mounted it under the arch on my 4600SCB (I bought a reverse image camera). It was connected to a Garmin GPS5212. I had to cut off the connector to snake it through the arch. I powered it off an unused accessory switch. It worked great. Here is a similar camera: https://www.ebay.com/itm/C61-Compact...oAAOSw~XpZWpIt
