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.

REAR VIEW SAFETY

Before You Begin 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 20).

Installation Guide

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.

Replacement Monitor

1. The Mirror Monitor replaces the existing rear view mirror in vehicle.

2. Replace existing mirror, and adjust mounting angle to allow optimum driver viewing comfort. (see figure 1.1 on page 11).

Clip-On Monitor

1. The Mirror Monitor attaches to the existing rear view mirror in vehicle with the pressurized clips on the back of the monitor.

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