2006 Rav4 Reverse Camera Location

I want to install a reverse camera in my 2006 Limited V6 to connect to my new Pioneer AVH-W4400NEX. I am trying to decide where to place the camera. It seems the normal spot is above the license plate, off to the left. This raises a few questions for me though.
  1. Does it being off to the left annoy the driver when backing up?
  2. Is there a glare from the license plate light? Is it a problem?
  3. If I get a 170 degree angle camera, will the spare tire on the back of the door block my vision on that side?

Another option is to cut a hole in the bumper under the spare tire. The guy in this video did it to his 2007 model. The bumper is slightly different though. I am just wondering what other people have done and if anyone has some ideas.
