Towing with backup camera

I have a backup camera on tailgate and monitor on radio face inside. Is there anyway to adjust camera to see ball and trailer tongue as I'm backing into position to connect the trailer?


NEVER MIND IT WORKS FINE, MUCH BETTER THAN I THOUGHT. I'M VERY PLEASED WITH THE ACCURACY OF BEING TO LINE UP BALL AND HITCH..

It kinda already does that. Are you asking about when the tailgate is down? If so, then no. I have pondered on how to make it happen with the tailgate down but no luck yet.

This is the one I installed. It can be positioned any way you like. I can clearly see the hitch while towing. Wich is the exact reason I bought it. I tow so much I am in constant fear that I forgot to lock the hitch latch (which has happened)http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Mine does that now. I've always backed up fine with it where Toyota put it.

I'll have to try it out (just got it) by looking at the camera location it doesn't seem like it would point down far enough to actually see ball and hitch alignment.
