The backup camera was the reason for the 8 week wait on my car, they found practically everything else on the lot.

My wife's Odyssey has a backup camera and once you have one you never go back. Now I've got kids and I've got a 100 year old house with a windy driveway and a carport to navigate, but the real reason I love the thing is this: You never have to turn your head or twist your neck again to see behind you. All you need is some decent peripheral vision and you're all set. I could be in a neck brace, still drove without incident.

The guide lines for parallel parking are a major win too, combined with PDC you're bulletproof.
