Are rear view cameras worth the added expense for your car? The answer is pretty simple. If you will use it, the answer is YES!
A good rear view camera, factory installed or after market, increases your vision by anywhere from a third to about 75%, according to a study done by AAA. None of them remove the need to personally check behind your car while getting in and planning to back up.
First person views are always better than cameras and mirrors.
Another potential advantage of a rear view camera is that some of them can see part or all of the blind spot in the rear quarter area of your car. That can help prevent you from changing lanes into the path of an unseen vehicle.
Are they worth the cost? That is a personal decision, but a rear view camera should definitely improve your vision around your car. But only if you actually get in the habit of using it.
