Rear-View Camera for Pioneer Video Units such as AVIC-N5/Z3/F90BT/F900BT/F700BT and others
The ND-BC2 is a rear-view camera as an accessory to the AVIC-N5, AVIC-Z3, AVIC-F90BT, AVIC-F900BT and AVIC-F700BT navigation/CD receiver/monitor. When your vehicle is in reverse, the monitor screen automatically switches to the view from the ND-BC2, allowing you to see what's behind you. You can also turn on the rear view while driving to keep an eye on the rear of your vehicle for that boat, trailer or car your pulling. The ND-BC2 camera can also be used with any receiver/monitor with an RCA video input.General Features:
Note: The standard composite video output (RCA plug) makes it compatible with virtually any mobile video monitor.

Internal Product ID:
As a former car audio installer, I have installed back up cameras from many different manufacturers and I have always preferred the cameras from Pioneer. I feel that the quality on them is top notch. After 4 years of installing, I've only had two customers with problems with Pioneer cameras. Both of those were the older ND-BC1 model. To this date, I have yet to see an ND-BC2 model have any issues. The smaller size of the ND-BC2 compared the the ND-BC1 is a nice feature of this model and the supplied mounting bracket makes installation easy as it offers many options for the installer to securely mount the camera in the right place for the application. I also like how the camera connects to it's hide-away "brain" with only a single cable which contains power and video connections all in one. This makes for a tidy install as there's not 3-4 wires that have to be ran to the rear of the vehicle. I have seen cameras from other manufacturers (usually less expensive ones) that only come with 6" of video cable and power and ground wires out of the camera. I've never been a fan of connecting RCA type video connections on the exterior of a vehicle because I feel that over time, the elements of nature can cause issues with that connection and possibly prevent the system from working properly. With this camera and it's single cable design, that is a non-issue.
I also prefer the external "box" style camera to the cut-in "lipstick" style camera because if there are any issues in the future in which the camera has to be replaced, you don't have to worry about finding another camera that fits in the hole that's drilled in your bumper. You also don't have to worry too much about the clearance behind the bumper cover to fit the rest of the body of the camera.
I currently use this camera on my pick up truck to make backing up to my trailer easier. Easier is probably an understatement. I will never own a tow vehicle without a back up camera again. The picture quality on the ND-BC2 is very clear in both day and night. The only gripe I have is when backing up to my trailer at night, the reverse lights on the truck reflect off of the diamond plate on the front of my trailer and cause a glare which makes it hard to see the black receiver against the black frame of the trailer. It's really only a problem when I'm 10'+ from the trailer. Once I get closer the glare goes away and I can see the hitch ball and the receiver perfectly.
Real back up camera beats trying anything else
I thought having a standard video camera hooked up to my Pioneer consol GPS system was pretty cool, but when I really wanted to use it to guide me backing up, right was left and left was right. I finally broke down and got a real reversed image camera and that made using it even better. The best part was the image quality and the great "Fish-Eye" view. Perfect for backing up and parking into tight spaces. I even use it when parking into my garage by intentionally dirving in too far, then using the back up mode to position the car exactly 1 inch from where the garage door comes down. Walking around the front of the car is always a breeze now.
Pioneer ND-BC2 Rear-View Camera it's works perfect day and night especially in night ,fairly sensitive in low light
I can't say any wrong about it , very good item if you want a good rear view camera this is the way to go! I would buy it again!
Night time image clarity lacking
This thing has a pretty bad glare at night with only the factory backup lamps. Maybe more light lower would cure it, but I have gotten around to installing any floods. It works and it's handy. Cord could have been another 2-3' longer as it barely reached the back of my crew cab long box truck.
I have used this backup camera for about five months now, and have had no problems at all. It works great and the picture is very clear... even at night.
This is a great item, It has great visibility at night, i painted my using touchup paint to match my paint color and it looks fantastic! Very easy to paint, great price, great product! No complaints. Easy Installation! =]
Camera works as advertised. Rich color, fairly sensitive in low light. I would buy it again.
GREAT VALUE !!
A wonderful accessory. Very easy to use.
I was concerned its location would be a problem, but so far, it isn't.
