Up to date advice on Wireless Kits

This month we are taking another look at Aftermarket Wireless Reverse Camera Kits. Recent improvements in the resolution in video cameras and improved interference resistance have produced some very interesting and attractive backup camera systems for the car market.

Number 1


One Camera, Small Monitor System but with only One Wire Installation using 12 volt power.

This is a good buy if you do not expect to reverse too often in very bad light conditions. This Auto-Vox kit offers a one wire easy installation. Just plug the Monitor into the cigarette lighter slot and wire the backup Camera to the reversing light.

The 4.3” Monitor has suction pads for fixing to the windscreen or dash and has a single cable and connector to fit directly to the cigarette lighter pocket. The screen has the usual grid lines for measuring the distance available for reversing – and with this installation, the monitor comes on when you reverse, and stays off when in drive.

The small but effective Camera is clipped behind the license plate. It has a wide angle of vision and claims a IP68 waterproof rating. This level of protection is particularly important with cameras fitted low on the vehicle. Night vision is reasonable and the installation of the camera is simple.

We suggest you consider this kit if its usage specification meets your requirements. The kit has received good reviews from customers. At around $50, this could buy a real bargain backup camera system for cars.

Number 2

Auto-Vox M1 W

From AUTO-VOX an upgraded M1W Wireless Backup Camera Kit introduced last month and already with satisfied customers.

This reverse camera system has a similar 4.3” Color Monitor to that reviewed above. It has the suction cup for installing on dash or windscreen to give a clear view and the Monitor includes reversing guide lines.

The main upgrade is a new backup Camera with six 26 lumen LEDs to give excellent vision in all light conditions including at night. The LEDs will come on automatically dependant on the intensity of light at the time.

The new HD reversing camera can be fitted to your existing license plate mount and is connected by a slim wire to the wireless transmitter which is placed in the trunk. The actual connector to the wireless transmitter is only 5mm thus making its installation easy.

So, for an extra $20 dollars or so, you will have much better night vision and an improved image.

Both these aftermarket kits from Auto Vox have good reviews from customers.

Number 3
Pyle Rear License Plate Camera and Replacement Rear View Mirror Monitor

This Pyle Camera is one of the best wired kits for the money right now.

This particular camera system has some very good reviews, commenting on the OEM replacement mirror as the monitor (instead of a mirror monitor that you clip over the existing one), and the quality of the camera’s image both day and night. This is a wired kit so either you need to be capable of fitting the cabling yourself or pay a professional service to install the system for you.

There are 2 video inputs which means that you can also connect this rear view mirror to your iPhone and utilise its Google Maps GPS system. This means the mirror monitor shows your backup camera when reversing and the Google Map system when driving. If your vehicle is not already equipped with GPS this could be extremely useful and at no extra cost.

The camera fits firmly on to the rear license plate and it has high waterproof and dust rating as well as a low LUX performance meaning good quality pictures in poor light.

Using 12 volts power, this backup camera kit is a good selection for a car, a pickup truck or a van with rear view mirror.

Why not take a look at this aftermarket backup camera kit from the Pyle range? This supplier has a good name for after sales service and advice.
