Product Description

This revolutionary camera design integrates a backup camera with your vehicle’s rear license plate without covering the license plate. The camera is easy to mount on your car, truck, or van with the bracket being hidden by your license plate. We have also included a surface mount bracket to help with other installation methods.

This Wired Camera is compatible with most monitors/TFT screens and can be connected using a standard RCA connector.

Camera Installation

License Plate Mounting Instructions

1.Remove the rear license plate.

2.Examine the vehicle to determine the best way to run the power wires to the reverse lights and the extension cable through the car.

3.The Camera can be mounted above or below the plate. (For surface mounting with the included bracket, see the next section.) Determine the mounting location that best suits your needs. Be sure to verify that your installation plan complies with local laws and requirements. Most states require that the state name, registration stickers, and license number are not obstructed in any way.

4.Place the camera bracket behind the license plate and line up the holes. Fasten the camera mounting bracket and the license plate to the vehicle using the anti-theftscrews provided. After installation of screws with the tool provided, place the tool in the glove compartment or other safe place for future use.

NOTE: If you decide to mount the camera at the bottom of the license plate, you must first remove the two screws that hold the camera to the bracket and flip the camera over so the picture will not be displayed up side down.

Surface Mounting Instructions

1.Find a suitable location on the vehicle where the bracket will not interfere with any equipment or doors, or block the line of sight. Verify that the planned mounting location is accessible from behind and that you have access to route the wiring inside the vehicle. Be sure that the mounting screws will not hit any wires or equipment inside the vehicle.

2.Attach the surface mounting bracket to the vehicle with the hardware included.

3.Route the camera wiring into the vehicle. The wire can be run through an existing grommet, behind a tail lamp, under the trunk molding, or if necessary, through a 5/8 inch hole drilled near the vehicle’s rear license plate. When choosing a wiring path, make sure the cable will not be damaged or pinched, as this may cause a short circuit that is not covered by the warranty. If drilling a hole, perform the following steps:

a)Acquire a 5/8 inch drill bit, rust preventive, and a 5/8 inch rubber grommet, all of which can be purchased at a hardware store.

b)Check behind the intended drilling location before drilling to verify that no wires or mechanisms can interfere with or be damaged during drilling.

c)Check for interference with license plate lights and the hatch release switch and/or mechanism.

d)Drill a 5/8 inch hole at the selected location.

e)Coat the edge of the hole with rust preventative.

f)Route the camera cable through the grommet and then through the hole.

g)Insert the grommet in the hole to keep water from entering the vehicle.

4.Remove the camera from the license plate bracket and attach it to the surface mount bracket on the vehicle.

Wiring the Camera to the Vehicle’s Reverse Lamp

1.Locate the reverse lamp in the tail light assembly.

2.Using the tap connector supplied, perform the following steps:

a)Place the un-strippedpositive lead from the tail lamp in the run channel, which runs completely through the connector.

b)Insert the un-strippedred power wire from the camera completely into the other channel in the connector.

c)Make the connection between the wires by crimping down the metal connector with a pair of pliers, making sure the metal is flush with the plastic insulator.

d)Close the top plastic hinged cover until latched.

3.Attach the black wire to the ground (negative).

4.Repeat the above steps for the red wire.

Connecting the Video Signal

1.Connect the included video extension cable to the Yellow RCA jack on the camera harness.

2.Run the extension cable to the monitor and connect to the Video input.

Reverse/Normal Image Adjustment

The camera comes standard with a reversed image, designed for mounting at the rear of the vehicle. If you need to change to a forward or normal image view, clip the blue jumper wire loop on the wiring cable (labeled “Mirror Selection” below) to change the camera image to normal. Secure the clipped wires with electrical tape. To change back to reverse image view, reconnect the blue wires and secure with electrical tape.
