Backup Cameras

A automotive backup camera is different from other cameras in that the image is flipped so that the output is a mirror type image in the display. This is necessary because the driver and camera face opposite directions.

Backup cameras are a great safety additions for truck and RV motorhome owners who are unable to use a windshield mounted inside rear view mirror. Additional uses are views of blind spots for car, van, pickup truck or suv drivers to see what's behind them.

Safety and Convenience

From a safety perspective, a rear back up camera and display should help reduce the risk of backup accidents, especially for cars, trucks, vans, motorhomes and suv with limited rear vision. Another benefit is the convenience associated with hooking up to boats, RVs and utility trailers.

Some concerns for backup cameras is the performance can change from vehicle to vehicle and from situation to situation. For example, rain, fog or other inclement weather can significantly reduce their ability to show a driver a clear view of objects in the danger zone in back of the vehicle. Even in clear daytime conditions, objects in the camera display may be difficult to see due to sun glare.

Please note that a rear backup camera use is intended to be used as a supplemental device for drivers and does not eliminate the need to check rearview mirrors or walk around the vehicle, should conditions warrant. When it comes to backing up safely, nothing beats walking around the vehicle prior to moving it.
