Wireless 7 TFT LCD Car Rear View Monitors, Cameras & Kits

Enhance Reversing Safety With a Wireless Rear View Camera System

You want that little bit of extra help reversing into tight parking spots or making sure nobody’s behind the rear of your vehicle before you back out, so maybe you need a wireless backup camera and wireless rear view system. When used in conjunction with your car mirrors, it provides an added level of safety in the operation of any car, as well as peace of mind when you’re negotiating difficult driving tasks or towing trailers and boats.

What Should You Look for When Buying a Backup Camera?

One of the most important things to consider is the field of rear view of the camera, which the image sensor size, type, and focal length of the lens determines.

  • The bigger the sensor of the camera, the better the picture quality is, particularly in low-light conditions.
  • You also have a wider field of view with a bigger sensor, with 90 degrees being the minimum you should accept when buying a wireless rear view camera and monitor kit.
  • You can find up to 210 degree views, but these often create a fisheye effect and a distortion that makes them impractical for reversing.

Which Type of Monitor Should You Get?

Most modern car rear view monitors are liquid-crystal display (LCD) and come in 5-, 7-, 9-, and 10-inch options.

  • As a general rule, a bigger LCD monitor is going to give you a clearer view of what is behind your vehicle, but the space in your vehicle may limited you, in which case, you may prefer a smaller backup camera screen.
  • Some cars have in-dash built-in satellite navigation units, which you can sometimes use in place of a backup camera screen with an auxiliary input to plug in the rear view camera.

Which Type of Rear View Cameras Are Available?

There are generally three different types of back up cameras on the market, which differ in where you mount them on your vehicle.

  • You can mount surface-mounted cameras on any flat surface. Generally mounted high up for an improved rear view and perception of depth, they are the preferred choice for large vehicles and are easy to use in conjunction with your side mirrors.
  • Flush-mounted cameras mount through a hole in the body of the vehicle and are level with the road. While they don’t provide the same perception of depth as a surface-mounted camera, they provide a clean look due to their flush mounting.
  • License-mounted backup cameras mount on the hole of your license plate, which makes for easy installation and no modifications. However, if your plate is off center, then your view of the rear of the car will be as well.
