Had a black box G1W, it died after a few months. Instead of picking up another one, I went with this version of the A-118 and I'm glad I did. It's got a capacitor so it does better in temperature extremes and it's more discreet.
I have an A118C & like it. Good picture & fits all requirements you listed.
EDIT: Although, the rear cam is of lower quality come to think of it.
I may spend 29 bucks on amazon for a replacement= hd cam for the rear
Here is the link It is nice and sleek, not too noticeable in the vehicle. Great Quality!!!
Edited* You can also purchase a hard wiring kit, I wired mine into my mirror.
Is this the model you went with? I see several on Amazon but it seems there's half a dozen "A118C" with minor differences and all of the lower priced ones have about 3 stars. This one seemed to rank a bit better and have more info
In case you don't want to do what is often suggested here (wire into the fuse box), maybe I have something for you.
I got this for my 2017 hatch. The cord it came with was long enough. With camera mounted just to the passenger side of rear view mirror, the cord runs along top of windshield to the passenger door frame, tucked along the trim down the front of the door frame to the bottom, under the passenger seat, and into the center console. It really only has maybe a few inches of slack, it's actually quite ideal length. The only spot it's really visible is where it crosses from the upper corner of the windshield to the door frame. There's a seam in the interior there so I'm sure it could be hidden but I didn't want to start taking pieces of my interior off in order to get the cord behind without causing damage (I mean, at that point you may as well go the fusebox route).
