REAR VIEW CAMERA INSTALLATION
Experienced and newbie drivers have something in common: both tend to find rear parking a hassle. The problem is that this isn’t always avoidable: in packed parking lots, it will be necessary every now and then.
Good news is that there’s a piece of equipment available in the market that can help you out with this: a rear view camera, or a complete rear system. Check it out:
Why having a rear view camera?
As the name goes, a rear view camera’s service is to make parking and overall maneuvering a whole lot easier. The reverse camera turns itself on automatically when the gear is changed to the R position, giving the driver a nice sight of what’s going on behind the vehicle. It also provides a few virtual lines that gives an idea of the vehicle’s trajectory if its position doesn’t change.
This means that when it comes to cars that don’t have a build-in monitor, purchasing one will be necessary in order to the reverse camera to be effective. The most recent rear view cameras models allow for the driver to have a small screen on the inside mirror, so that consulting the camera doesn’t involve moves not typically related to parking.
Although there’s no doubt about how helpful a car rear view system is. It’s important to note that it doesn’t, under any circumstances, replace constant checks on the mirrors. Remember: as good as a reverse camera is, it only gives a notion of where the vehicle is going.
Last but not least, having a car rear system is also a way of making your vehicle more valuable. This means that when the time comes to sell it, you’re more likely to get a good price.
How to install a reverse camera?
Before proceeding to the actual installation, it’s essential to make sure that the chosen reverse camera model is compatible to the vehicle. In case it’s not, it won’t function as it should, failing the driver when it’s needed the most.
It’s also important to note that having a car rear view camera installed will always involve some electrical work: both the camera and the auxiliary monitor need to be connected to the car’s circuits in order to function properly. An expert should be in charge of that.
Choosing rear view camera’s position is also vital to get top notch rear vision. Remember: blind spots are all you want to avoid. Moreover, it’s interesting to pair it up with some led lighting, so that the image is good and clear even during the night or inside badly illuminated places, such as in parking garages.
