Introduction

Congratulations on purchasing a Rear View Backup Camera System! With this manual you will be able to properly install and operate the unit.

The Backup Camera System is intended to be installed as a supplement aid to your standard rear view mirror that already exists in your vehicle. The Backup Camera System should not be used as a substitute for the standard rear view mirror or for any other mirror that exists in your vehicle.

In some jurisdictions, it is unlawful for a person to drive a motor vehicle equipped with a TV viewer or screen located forward of the back of the driver’s seat or in any location that is visible, directly or indirectly, to the driver while operating the vehicle.

REAR VIEW SAFETY

Safety Information

Please read the entire manual and follow the instructions and warnings carefully. Failure to do so can cause serious damage and/or injury, including loss of life. Be sure to obey all applicable local traffic and motor vehicle regulations as it pertains to this product. Improper installation will void manufacturer’s warranty.

USAGE

The Rear View Camera System is designed to help the driver safely detect people and/or objects helping to avoid damage or injury. However, you the driver, must use it properly. Use of this system is not a substitute for safe, proper or legal driving.

Never back up while looking at the monitor alone. You should always check behind and around the vehicle when backing up, in the same way as you would if the vehicle did not have the Rear View

Camera System. If you back up while looking only at the monitor, you may cause damage or injury. Always back up slowly.

The Rear View Camera System is not intended for use during exstensive back-up maneuvers or backing into cross traffic or pedestrian walkways.

Please, always remember, the area displayed by the Rear View Camera System is limited. It does not display the entire panorama that is behind you.

Electric shock or product malfunction may occur if this product is installed incorrectly.

Use this product within the voltage range specified. Failure to do so can cause electronic shock or product malfunction.

Take special care when cleaning the monitor.

Make sure to firmly affix the product before use.

If smoke or a burning smell is detected, disconnect the system immediately.

Where the power cable may touch a metal case, cover the cable with a friction tape. A short circuit or disconnected wire may cause a fire.

While installing the Rear View System be careful with the wire positioning in order to avoid wire damage.

The Rear View System should only be used when the vehicle is in reverse.

Before Beginning Installation

Before drilling please check that no cable or wiring is on the other side of the wall. Please clamp all wires securely to reduce the possibility of them being damaged while vehicle is in use. Keep all cables away from hot or moving parts and electrical noisy components.

We recommend doing a benchmark test before installation to insure that all components are working properly.

Step 1: Choose the monitor and camera locations.

Step 2: Install all cables in vehicle, when necessary a 0.8 (20mm) hole should be drilled for passing camera cable through vehicles walls. Install split grommets where applicable.

Step 3: Once all cables and wiring have been properly routed, perform a system function test by temporarily connecting the system. If the system seems to not be operating properly see troubleshooting (page 22).

Installation Guide

Camera

1. Attach camera bracket close to rear marker lights, centered on vehicle.

2. Attach camera to bracket using screws provided and adjust the angle.

Cable

1. Be sure to position the cable properly. The aviation camera cable uses aircraft grade connectors which means the camera cable can be exposed to all weather elements. Do not run the cable over sharp edges, do not kink the cable and keep away from HOT and rotating parts.

2. Fasten all cables and secure all excess cable.

Monitor

1. To attach the pedestal mount to the dashboard or to the headliner use self-tapping screws and/or the adhesive pad.

2. Attach monitor to mount, and adjust mounting angle to allow optimum driver viewing comfort. (see figure 1.1 on page 12)

Wiring Camera & Monitor

When installing a ONE (1) camera setup, connect camera extension cable from the rear view camera to port labeled “backup” (most systems port #3) Connect red 12V+ wire to ignition power source and black wire 12Vto chassis ground. Do not use white and yellow wires.

The blue wire is the REVERSE trigger wire. In typical rear-view installations, connecting this wire to the vehicle’s backup light circuit will activate the rear-view image whenever the vehicle shifts into reverse.

Before drilling, be sure no cable or wire is on the other side.

Feed as much cable as possible into vehicle & clamp securely. This reduces the possibility of cable being hooked or snagged.

Camera: Drill a 20mm (0.8in) diameter hole into vehicle body near the camera and bracket. Insert camera cable into vehicle (be careful not to kink

cable) and fit grommet into hole. Apply sealant around grommet to increase resistance to water penetration. Connect camera to the camera extension cable which runs inside the vehicle.

The camera system can be wired to be powered “ON” the entire time the vehicle is on. This is typical in RV and some ;commercial applications.

The camera and monitor can always be activated by manually pushing the power button on monitor. This is in

addition to utilizing the positive triggers.

Note: If connecting power directly to battery, the camera is always ON and therefore can drain battery. Therefore it is recommended to connect power to an ignition switched accessory power source.

REAR VIEW SAFETY

Wiring Camera & Monitor

Audio works on two ports of multiplexer and positive triggers must be triggered for audio to operate. These are port #3 labeled “backup” (blue trigger) and port #2 labeled “DVD” (white trig-ger).

When installing a TWO (2) camera setup, use ports #3 and #2 and use positive triggers Blue and White.

There is a built-in voltage regulator for our systems which can handle 9-32 volts. Real

ΦTo automatically have camera and monitor turn ON when vehicle activates, simply twist BLUE positive trigger 12V+ to Red Power line 12V+ and wire to ignition power which can be an accessory switch/fuse line and black wire 12Vto chassis ground.

ΦInfrared technology built into camera IRs are activated

automatically according to the

consumption is 10 to 30 Volts.

When installing all THREE (3) cameras, use all three ports and connect all positive triggers to appropriate connections.

To activate grid lines connect the blue trigger to a power source. If you want the grid lines to be on when reversing, connect the blue trigger to reverse power. If you want the grid lines to be on all the time connect the blue trigger to a constant power.

lighting conditions.

Φ When using the postive trigger functions (blue, yellow & white wires) each trigger function needs to work on a seperate 12V+ source i.e. the Yellow and White wires can be wired to a turn signal circuit etc.

Φ Grid lines function can be turned on/off manually from menu. (See page 14)
