    This is how I have mine. It's a bit off center, but I just keep in mind its basically lined up with driver seat view.

    Here's the front camera pic, better than the rear cam in pic quality.

    Your system should work just fine.

    If you're not satisfied you replace it with a better camera, but it should be adequate.

    I've got the same camera, this is exactly where'd I want to mount mine. Any issues with the sensor?

    I bought my front camera for when I go offroading so I can see what I am about to drive over. I slipped it through an already existing hole on the very bottom of the front bumper and screwed down the nut to tighten it down. It is perfectly centered.

    I’ve thought about doing it that way. Only thing stopping me was how dirty the camera would be getting. Have you had any issues with that?

    So far so good. It doesn't get any dirtier than having it on the grill. And if it does I just wipe it off.

    If you do not go off roading, why do you need this. I would like to install one but I am trying to think of a reason for my purchase. I think I need one that will record my driving.
    I am not knocking the idea of a front camera, but I need a reason in my mind to buy one. I think they are neat, but is this the reason for the purchase?
