This is a great little camera for the price. The two big reasons why I give it only a 4 star review are as such:
#1. It's kinda bulky. Even when tucked up under the tag light housing of a Ford Expedition it sticks out and is hard to miss.
#2. The image quality is great and you do have a wide field of view, but it is NOT 170* as advertised. It is only 135* as stated with the spec sheet that came with the camera. It's still wide enough to pick up items 2 feet away from the rear bumper off to the side of the vehicle where your door mirror will see it.
Overall I'm happy with it. It provides me a pretty decent video feed of what's behind me and there was JUST enough cable to reach the head unit in my Ford Expedition. If I had an Excursion I would have had to add an RCA extension
Lost one Star for not being waterproof in anyway, come on its a outside camera that mounts on a vehicle,
Great sharp image during day, Nice camera, reversed image, wide view but not real fish eyeish looking, color image,
Not waterproof or even resistant.
I opened up case, hot glued inside then real quick screwed back together, silicon between lens and case, now it's waterproof.
Green warning, and red stop grid lines, can't turn them off, but this is for backing up, not a deal killer for me.
Hook to reverse wire for power, might last longer.
Night time: Camera has lines and not real clear, but still does the job, has no infrared, but reverse lights make this usable at night.
Pioneer Avic stereo, motorhome, used 22 feet of r6 cable wires with RCA connects and it works great
For the price it's worth it.
Hope it lasts
This camera works well. Very clear .I could due without the distance lines but other then that it works fine.
Was sceptical about this item when reading thru past review but am very happy and this is a good camera. Very bright even in low light condition.
This camera is fantastic. Great res, you can see blades of grass and individual pebbles in the concrete. Fits anywhere; I installed by screwing under one of the license plate screws. Get some clear silicone to cover the seams and make it water-proof.
Camera works great. The image is clear HD with a 170º angle. After a few shower storms and drive through car washes I can confidently say, it's water proof. Great products, Thinking of buying a second one for my wife's car.
The Camera works very well.
The only complaint would be the lack of instructions or guides. Hard to install without.
So cheap I figured I could toss it. It works fine and video cable is long enough to reach on my long bed super cab truck. I have had it installed for about 6 weeks and there is some surface rust. I will sand the case and spray paint it but for the money it is a 5 star. Did I say it is a color camera.
This produces a bright image with lines to define the space into which the car is moving. The lines do not bend as you turn the wheel, as they did on an Infinity loaner I drove recently, but that does not detract from it for me. Someone had trouble seeing at night, but I have not experienced that. The lights which come on when the transmission is shifted to reverse give a bright light in the entire area covered by the lines.
In certain day-time lighting conditions, it is difficult to see anything, but I doubt that is the fault of the camera. It is rather like trying to see when the sun is low and you are facing it.
I was surprised to learn that the screen, which is not being reviewed here, does not show when I wear my polarized driving glasses. I have it mounted in landscape orientation. I chose the TFT LCD car rearview monitor and like it.
I paid a local shop to do the installation. For less than $90 I got a good installation.
I should have done this long ago. Visibility is poor when backing my Infinity M35 without a rearview camera and I am now much more confident I will not hit anything.
Bought this for my 08 GMC Sierra 2500. Works great. Had it for a couple months now, no problems. easy to install, clear picture. Already recommended it to a buddy. If look for a camera to use as a quick look behind you, this product is what you want.
