Two Backup Camera's Necessary?

Hello all,

New to the forum here, I had a 4runner for 9 years and after selling it I just recently bought a 2011 Limited Rav4 which I really love!

I am replacing the OEM nav unit with this:
HD 1024 600 7" Car Stereo DVD Plyaer GPS Navi Android 4 4 for Toyota RAV4 06 11 | eBay

I currently have a stock backup camera with screen in the rearview mirror, but I'm thinking of adding another backup camera to utilize the new head unit, I could really use some advice on how to set up it up if I do. Anyone do this with with the license plate light camera and wireless hook ups? Anyone think I should just stick with the existing backup camera in the mirror and skip the additional installation?

Here's what I was thinking of installing:
Amazon.com : CCD Color Car Rear View Reverse Parking Camera for Toyota RAV4 RAV-4 : Vehicle Backup Cameras : Car Electronics

Amazon.com: Esky® 2.4G Wireless Color Video Transmitter and Receiver for Vehicle Backup Camera / Front Car Camera: Automotive

Wow, they misspell "player" in the listing and "SD CARD" on the unit itself? Doesn't inspire much confidence in the quality.

I ended up buying the same unit from a different source, but yes, I believe english is not they're first language.

Still debating whether to install another camera or not.
