Stay safe when you drive with a back up camera system

Many vehicles now arrive from the factory with a rearview camera system, but you don’t have to buy a new or used vehicle with a rearview camera to get the feature. You can add an aftermarket rearview camera to your vehicle, and the choices range from complete easy add-on camera-and-monitor packages to cameras that can be added to your car’s existing in-dash monitor.

Rearview Camera Features

Features to look for in rearview cameras include the angle of view (measured in degrees) and the low-light or night-vision capabilities offered.

Of course, most cameras provide a reversed image to simulate a rearview mirror appearance, but some cameras also offer the ability to switch to a normal view. And most aftermarket rearview cameras automatically switch on when a car’s transmission is shifted to Reverse.
