Not sure if anyone has a product out already or have implemented their own. Why hasn't anyone installed a camera with a monitor near the cockpit allowing two people to wakeboard without having to worry about when they fall. Same concept as alot of the new trucks/suvs use to back up. Seems like it could be better than a mirror. could also program it to film your sets.

There are systems. Not factory but I have a system on my boat sort of. Grant West has the perfect set up with his flip up mirror that reveals a t.v. monitor. On my boat I have a traker camera mount on the tower that feeds video to the 22" screen I have under my glove box. Not really the perfect system for viewing while someone is riding but cool for video playback. I wish Grant would make some more of his video mirror monitors they where sweet!

Not wanting to take the pss, but isn't that what the mirror is for? If you can look in a monitor, you can look in a mirror.

On the K.I.S.S. scale the morror wins hands down; simple, cheap, no moving or electrical parts and visible in bright sunlight.

I thought the new malibu's with the maliview option could do that??

It would be better that a mirror if you could attach the camera to a tower mount and have it follow the rope. Then there would be no blind spots.

"G" made one of these a few years back. He actually put the monitor in his Cipa mirror.

You can tie a camera into the Malivue system right now. I wouldn't doubt you could tie it into the Correct Craft version as well.

I have driven an 09 VLX with the camera mounted on the tower and viewable through the Maliview. It works well. I still like the mirror myself but maybe because I am not used to looking down yet. Awesome option for the Illusion tower.
