Backup camera antenna buzzing

The backup camera monitor for our new 5.0TA has an annoying habit of buzzing, which can be stopped by holding the antenna. It gets so loud that I sometimes have to power it down when I'm not in traffic. Has anyone had this problem and figured out how to fix it?

Well since no one has apparently had this issue, I'm going to assume that I have a defective one and will contact ETI.

Does turning the volume down make a difference?

Turning the volume down has solved this for me.

I've turned down the volume to no avail. When I hold the antenna, the buzzing stops, which leads me to conclude there is a ground problem.

I had the same thing. It stopped after I rotated the antenna and found the right spot. It is a very annoying sound.

Odd. The buzzing pretty much stopped after a few days of towing. So I'm just going to go w/ it.
