General Features

Color Type
This will denote whether the displayed image is color or black & white.
Color
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.
Infrared LED's
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.
CMD
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.
510 x 496 
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
Mounting Type
This is the manner in which the unit is attached to the vehicle.
Top of License Plate Frame
Adjustable Tilt
This means that the item can be tilted and adjusted to achieve the perfect view for the user.
Weatherproof
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.
Yes
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.
Adjustable
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.
Removable
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.
No

This is the main color of the item.

Metal - Not Specified by Manufacturer

Great Product - 5 stars

February 2, 2013

This product is very affordable and delivers great results. With the night vision on it there are no issues with using it at night in no light situations. I have would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a licence plate mounted camera.

March 30, 2014

Good product for the price, but I did have to buy a longer video cord, the one that Comes in the package is just to short for a truck. If you have a car it's no problem but I have a four door short bed f150 and the cord was about 4 ft to short.

Good cam.

November 6, 2016

This after market backup camera is a good safety feature. For me it was not a difficult install (my first try). The instructions for installation are easy to understand. If you don't have one get one. You will be happy that you did. Don't know yet about the durability of the camera since I've only used for about 35 days. But so far, so good.

Will my 2010 Dodge factory Navigation/Radio System have a video input for this camera on the back of the unit? Where can I find how to get access to the back of the Navigation/Radio? How long is the power cable and how long is the video cable provided with the camera?
Paul W on Nov 23, 2014
Best Answer: Hello Paul,

The OEM headunit will NOT have a Video Input for an AFTERMARKET camera. Dodge sets up the headunit so that you go back to Them for that add-on. In order to 'retro-fit' such an input - essentially 'bypassing/unlocking' the headunit - you require a module like the LockPick MYGIG V-5.0 Freedom-In Motion.

how to connect this camera system ?
artnold p on Aug 30, 2014
Best Answer: This unit is connected through the video system in my Truck: I have forward camera activation circuit on my Navi the switches to this video source when my speed drops below 9 MPH. the power is on acc. Video is displayed on navi screen. I use the same system for the Grille-mounted FLIR (simple as that)

I have another one on the roofline that shows the bed, so I can monitor cargo. That displays to a separate dash mounted video system.

Would this back up camera work for a 26 ft Rv ? Most camera are installed just bellow the rear roof line looking in a downward angle .
willieo on Sep 4, 2016
Best Answer: I have one mounted on the license plate area of an extended cab pickup w/ an 8" bed and it works for me. Mounting the camera high looking down may give a better perspective directly behind the vehicle. The Acura MDX SUV also mounts the backup camera high so they may feel that angle may be more effective.

How do I change the camera so it is not being displayed in reversed?
Ricky on Oct 1, 2016
Best Answer: RIcky,
Play with the two jumpers attached to the power wire. I left both of mine alone (as they were installed in shipping) and my pic was fine. I did read that the jumpers were used for "parking line" choices on the view as well as reversing the view. Hope this helps.

Why is the camer appearing in reversed?
Ricky on Oct 1, 2016
Best Answer: It is a back up camera - it only comes on when you shift into reverse gear on your transmission. If is mounted upside down, you will get an upside down view (only in reverse gear).
If you split the camera video signal, you can tie it to an AV input on your stereo. Then you can view the rear camera when driving forward.
