LED lights for a clear view at night

Accele's RVC50 rear view camera gives you a clear view of what's behind you, so you can back up safely in almost any conditions. The camera sports a 120-degree wide view so you won't miss a thing back there, and the camera's built-in LED lights provide better visibility at night. The waterproof plastic case mounts to your license plate for a convenient and simple installation. And the standard RCA video cable allows the RVC50's picture to show up on virtually any video screen.

Note: A rear-view camera provides an additional view when reversing your vehicle. It is intended to be used in conjuction with your rear- and side-view mirrors to give a fuller picture of what's behind you. It is not intended as a replacement for your mirrors.

Good for the price

Written By TedS, New York on Tuesday, September 08, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The camera gets the job done. It is not what I would call a high end camera, but is good for the price. The instructions are a bit mention of what to do with the orange wire at all. After reading reviews I saw it is for the reverse signal to the head unit, which I didn't need to hook up since my factory harness already had a reverse signal going to the head unit.

Pros: Low price, large guidelines.

Cons: No mention of orange wire in instructions. A bit hazy at night.

Very nice for the price

The camera works great, the clarity could be a bit better, but for the price it's amazing. Install was easy, it just took a long time to get it done on a 12 passenger van.

Works as advertised

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Works very well, has the red/yellow/green lines for distance and orients the image correctly. On very humid mornings, the lens fogs up, but I believe that will happen with any camera.

Pros: easy to install

Cons: Lens fogs up

Simple and nice Camera

Written By BetoP, Virginia on Thursday, April 16, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I install the camera by my self. really easy. The only problem that I had, is the RCA cord, to short for my SUV and the orange cable on a side didnt know what to do, until I saw some of the questions. Found out that the orange cable has to be connected to the red + cable on the back of the reverse light, and the other side of the cable should be connected in one of the cables coming from the stereo (PIONEER purple) to notice the camera when is in reverse mode.

Pros: No to expensive and nice view

Cons: RCA Cable to short

Backup Cam

Written By Anonymous, Wheeling, Wv on Wednesday, April 01, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Works great for a little extra judgement.

Pros: Easy installation, wiring reached my head unit (sedan) no need for extensions.

Cons: If it is rainy at night it is hard to make out the picture but does need cleaned a good bit, a little amount of dirt haze distorts picture as well.

Great camera for the price!

Written By Jim, Nevada on Tuesday, March 03, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It was a breeze to install. It ran it under the bed liner in my Avalanche and it reached the Pioneer AVH-X2600BT with no problems. I tucked the excess wires behind the driver's side light for the power and ran an extra back down for the HU indicator. Didn't even need to adjust the angle, but I could. Now I am no longer afraid my vertically challenged wife will back over anything! I have not noticed any problems with it at night, however, the city here is pretty well lit.

Pros: Far easier than I thought it would be!! Great camera for the price.

Cons: Can't think of any.

Back-up camera

Pros: Great in the day time.

Cons: Poor in the night time.

I returned this camera due to the fact the cable was not long enough for the deck oh my suv, and they should be standard size.

Great Basic Camera

Written By Newbie, Seattle, WA on Monday, December 01, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a very good basic camera. It sticks out a bit far, but on my SUV that isn't a problem. I've had pretty good luck with the picture in most lighting conditions, and I like the fact you can adjust the camera angle. My only complaint is the RCA cable that came with it didn't quite reach my deck, so I had to buy an extension cable. Otherwise it's a good camera for the price!

Pros: Price, adjustable camera angle, easy to install.

Cons: Cable too short for my SUV.

I can see!

Written By Al D, Pittsburgh, PA on Thursday, November 06, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

For the cost this camera is great. Night vision is not good if you have small backup lights, but this worked out great on my Ford F150. Great for those short concrete polls that hide behind your truck bed!

Pros: easy install

Cons: night vision not so great

Great Camera

Written By Mark, Kentucky on Sunday, October 12, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great camera. I installed it on my Super Duty truck, viewing it with a Pioneer AVH X1500 DVD. Camera has a great color picture sunny or cloudy, night time does pretty well, picture gets a little grainy but still does well. I hard wired the power and ground leads to the battery and chassis with a switch on the dash instead of wiring it to the reverse lights, this way I can turn it on when I want to keep an eye on my trailer from time to time.

Pros: Great camera, very nice picture.

Cons: Power and Ground lead wire gauge is very small, can be hard to work with.

Written By edavis, Taylorsville, MS on Monday, July 07, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I purchased this rearview camera to use with a Boss radio. It was a breeze to install! It has worked well thus far. I have had it installed for 3 weeks now. I have used the camera function to hook up to my camera and it saves alot of wasted motion getting in and out of the truck to determine alignment. I would recommed this to anyone looking for a lower priced rearview camera. The only issue that I had was that the wiring harness was too short for my long wheel base truck. I had to purchase an extension cable locally to complete the wiring.

Pros: Price, viewing field, distance increments

Cons: Short wiring harness

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Like one of the other reviews says, "You get what you pay for" The daytime image is okay if you are not wearing sunglasses. At night it is very hard to see the picture.

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Nightime image while backing.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It's an alright product. It gets the job done. Like I said you get what you pay for.

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Poor picture quality, big and nasty looking on my truck, video cable wasn't long enough to reach from my radio to my back bumper.

Be ready for thin wiring

Written By rogers296, Nashville, TN on Saturday, February 02, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Good camera image in my Pioneer head unit, good in night and day. Easy to install (although it does not have any instructions), except the wiring is extremely thin gauge and very difficult to work with. I had the strip off a lot of the wire cover and fold over the wires multiple times to get anything decent to work with.

Pros: Good image, easy installation

Cons: Poor thin gauge wiring

Do Not Recommend!

Written By Brian E., Midwest City, OK on Sunday, November 11, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I understand that this is a cheap camera, but come on...during the day it works fine, but at night, I can't see anything. Even in a lit area. The display is just fuzzy and dark. I am using an Alpine head unit so I know that is not the problem. I have been using this camera for over a month now and I am completely unsatisfied with it's performance. If you want to see at night, don't buy this camera, spend the money on a good one. I know when I have the extra money, I will be buying an Alpine back-up camera.

Pros: It's cheap

Cons: You get what you pay for...literally
