The ND-BC1 is a rear-view camera as an accessory to the AVIC-N1 / AVIC-N2 navigation/CD receiver/monitor. When your vehicle is in reverse, the AVIC-N2 / AVIC-N1's monitor screen automatically switches to the view from the ND-BC1, 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-BC1 camera can also be used with any receiver/monitor with an RCA video input.

General Features

Color Type
This will denote whether the displayed image is color or black & white.
Night Vision
Some cameras are equipped with additional lighting for improved performance in low light conditions. LED lights will drastically improve range visibility and maintain a color image. Infrared LED lights have an even further visible range but lack a color image; this is a true night vision feature.
Sensor Type
Currently, cameras will typically use a CMOS, CCD or CMD sensor type. A CMOS camera is your most common type due to its low cost and quality performance. CMOS cameras also use much less power than a CCD but are more susceptible to noise interference. A CCD camera is much more sensitive than a CMOS camera so the pictures are cleaner and less grainy and perform much better in low light situations. A CMD camera is right in between the two as it has a better image quality over CMOS cameras and a comparable picture quality to the CCD cameras without being quite as expensive.
Resolution (pixels)
A display's pixel resolution defines its ability to resolve fine details. Digital TVs and projectors measure screen resolution in pixels. The higher the resolution, the more detailed the picture will be.
Video Output
This is how the video signal is outputted to the receiver. Most items use RCA composite cables, while other units use wireless transmitters or other video cables.
RCA Composite Cable (Audio & Video)
Mounting Type
This is the manner in which the unit is attached to the vehicle.
Remote Mount
Adjustable Tilt
This means that the item can be tilted and adjusted to achieve the perfect view for the user.
Weatherproof items are protected from the elements. They usually are treated or coated with special materials that help protect them. Normally, weatherproof units are sealed to keep any water from getting inside.
Reverse Image
Mirror Image is feature which horizontally flips the camera's image before it is output to a display. This is necessary when the camera is being used as a backup camera so that the orientation of viewed image is the same as if the driver is looking in a rear view mirror. Cameras without this feature are to be used to view images in front of the driver.
Parking Guidelines
Parking guidelines is a feature which displays guidelines over the image from the camera to assist the driver with parking. The guidelines help to determine distance between the camera and an obstruction.
Built-in Microphone
Some cameras have built-in microphones in order to provide an audio feedback of the environment outside, or to record audio when using the camera for security purposes.
Primary Color
This is the main color of the item.
Frame Material
This is the material that the license plate frame is made of.
Camera Housing Material
This is the material that the housing of the camera is made out of.
Minimum Illuminance
Essentially the amount, or intensity of, the visible light required for a clear picture. A lower Lux rating designates a camera that will function better with less light.
Lens Distortion Correction
Lens distortion correction is a feature which allows for the viewing of faraway objects and an uninterrupted horizontal (left to right) path without the need for a fish-eye view.
Screen Size
This is the size of the monitor on the unit. It is measured diagonally and in inches. The bigger the number the larger the screen.

Awesome View

December 22, 2006

This Item is great, it covers all the area behind your vehicle in great view. If you have kids, this thing can be a life saver, keep you from running over toys or anything else you can't typically see with standard mirrors, By far an essential in my current and any future car's. Works awesome with my AVIC-Z1

This camera is great! I works well at night. I advise anyone with Pioneer monitors of any type to add this to your system.

Since having a new car battery installed my Pioneer ND-BC1 backup camera is not displaying on my Pioneer AVI-CD2 navigation unit when the vehicle is put in reverse. How do I correct this? I know these units are a few years old but they both worked great until I had to replace the car's battery. Thanks, Tom

Best Answer: Hello Tom,

It is not possible to accurately determine the cause of your issue. We suggest having a hands-on technician take a look at the system.
