Back up camera for iPad or plotter?

I'm having a visibility problem when single handing and backing into my slip. I can't see the stern to starboard at all and not very well on the port side either.

I have a Garmin 1040 with wifi. Can a wifi camera be connected to that? Could I mount something like that on the radar mast using the 12v feed from the anchor light, and point down at the stern?

Has anyone experiment with doing this? Any camera recommendations?

I also thought about something that would interface with my iPad if the plotter idea doesn't work.
