    No real point in going wireless. Camera has to have power and no way to do that wireless unless you add a battery pack. The slight drain created by the camera is enough to kill the battery so don't think you can wire it hot all the time and toggle with the monitor switch. (don't ask how I know)

    I put a cheap unit on my 4310 and I don't find it to be much use but that is primarily because I can't focus on it without my glasses and I don't wear them while I'm tractoring. ;) On the rare occasion I find the need I will put my glasses on.

    I just wired mine to come on with the ignition. Not sure if it's there on a 4300 but my tractor had an unused wire that is hot with key on by the left side of the cowl.

    I did a quick wireless backup camera test last winter running both the camera and display off a rechargeable battery pack. I velcro'd the display to the hood and the camera to one of the ROPS light guards. The display was just too dim to be useful, and this was supposedly one of the brighter displays designed for outside use in RC/drone applications with a fold out sunshield. I suppose if you had your face right up at the display it would be okay, but trying to see it from just a few feet away was useless. If I ever get a cab I'll try again. Until then...

    I've installed mirrors since my backup camera test failed.
    Mirrors with loader-

    And made a mount so I have mirrors when using the plow on the front quick hitch.

    In either case, the only time vibration is a problem for me is at idle. Bumping the engine RPM up just a little is enough to smooth things out so the mirrors are stable. Though it may be a different story with your tractor.
