Default Backup/rearview cameras

My camera or monitor is shot. Even if working correctly I'd want to replace with modern technology, so I'm reaching out looking for suggestions. There are endless websites advertising stuff, but I want to know what you've done and how it has worked for you. I'm looking for real-life experience.

Criteria = replace rear and add right side cameras with a color split screen large enough for old eyes to be able to tell the difference between the toad or the VW in my blind spot from an armadillo.

Second topic: Wireless or wired?

The search terms I used didn't bring up the threads that I knew were there, but I also know that if I posted the question I would get directions.

Found KC's Leviathan comments and discussion, as well as others. I think this thread is the one I was looking for.
