This will eliminate the need for a backup camera for hitching http://www.amazon.ca/Reese-Towpower-.../dp/B0016C5YF2

I know the Swift Hitch has a strong magnet, but I wonder if anyone has tried to use it as a rear-view camera while towing. The downside is that if it isn't strong enough, it would be an expensive experiment.

I'd be concerned about rear-ending somebody or running off the road, while squinting at the small screen.
I can see all I need to see in a glance, with my Grand Aero mirrors.
