Aftermarket Video on Nav

I am looking to install a backup camera on my car and was looking at different market offerings. I was wondering whether anyone could provide any feedback on these:

1) Dietz 1250 from EAS. http://www.europeanautosource.com/pr...roducts_id=336
Appears to be plug and play. Apparently needs an extra cable kit with a relay for the backup function.
Would come out to be about $500

2) http://www.avelectronic.com/Navigati...Interface.html
Seems plug and play as well and has everything included except for the camera for $250

3) Soundgate VIDBMW1V4 http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_...FRk_awod9Gjw1Q
Would require a relay and some cabling as well. Very cheap. ($250 total)

4) NAV TV BMWV+ unit http://navtv.com/product.php?ProductID=12
Would also be around $250 total with the relay and harness.

Of course there is always OEM but I do not want the TV tuner which is now useless and the price is out of my range. Which one should I get?

Seems plug and play as well and has everything included. I have not yet called for the price. I suspect it to be about $300

There's a 5th option that will be coming as soon as we can get testing completed.
