Thin rear-view camera for your license plate

The safety of those behind your vehicle depends on you having a good view when you're backing up — especially when something's too small to be seen with your regular mirrors. Accele's RVCLPMB rear-view camera mounts on the top or bottom of your license plate to make sure you can get the full picture, from the best angle. You can even swivel the little camera in its housing for a better shot.

The sleek water-resistant metal case almost disappears on your license plate frame, adding a cool stealthiness to the design. The CCD-based color camera shows a clear image even under extreme low-light conditions.

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.

Product Highlights:

  • rear-view license plate camera
  • black cast metal case
  • mounts in top or bottom position
  • camera swivels for best vertical view
  • 0.1 lux CCD-based camera sees clearly, even in low-light conditions
  • 170-degree wide viewing angle
  • 23' RCA video cable included
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

For getting free can't really complain. Easy hook up. But the video quality could be better

Pros: East hook up. Simple mounting

Cons: A little fuzzy video quality.

Written By The Golden Pickle, Pennsylvania on Saturday, October 24, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a... decent camera for the price. It's way too bulky though in my opinion, but does seem very solid (all metal housing). Covers up my registration sticker. The instructions sucked. When there are numerous misspellings on the packaging, it kind of gets me worried about the quality of the product. It's a simple product that you can figure out everything with trial and error. Picture quality is... meh.

Pros: Solid metal construction. Simplistic design.

Cons: Picture quality is meh. Instructions sucked. The limited instructions included on the packaging contains multiple misspellings. Way too bulky.

Great backup camera

Written By Eddie, McKenzie tn on Friday, October 16, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great quality , great price!

Pros: Won't break the bank

Cons: None

very helpful but grainy.

Written By Larry A, Virginia on Friday, September 18, 2015

The camera was easy to install. The picture is grainy . It's does work at night and is a great help to hook up my rear hitch trailer. No more arguing with the wife. Had to mount it on the tailgate because I couldn't see the hitch when mounted at the license plate.

Pros: Nice long cord and the distance lines.

Cons: Grainy picture, has to be mounted one side up so the bracket has only one notch cut in it for the cord.

Better than expected

Written By LeeA, Texas on Sunday, August 16, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This was included for free, with the purchase of a Kenwood head unit, so I wasn't expecting it to be TOO nice. I'm impressed so far, the picture is better than expected, and in color. The added wire, built into the RCA plug connecting to the head unit, is a very convenient way to give the head unit a signal - I connected that wire and the power wire for the unit to the reverse lights. The only thing I don't like is that it covers up too much of the top of license plate. I vertically elongated the plate's mounting holes, allowing the plate to drop down some, so that the state lettering at the top of the plate is not totally obscured.

Pros: - FREE (with some head units, at this time) - Color picture - Picture quality - Nice broad view from the camera - Easy to wire

Cons: - obscures top of license plate

Install is not awesome

Written By Jereme, Oregon on Sunday, July 26, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The camera worked great until I needed to permanently install the unit. During pre-install checks it worked great, but when I needed to install the camera the plugs were really bulky so I clipped the wires and soldered/heat shrinked the connections to slip them through a much smaller hole in the tailgate of my 2001 Land Cruiser. It never worked again. Tech support could not tell me why so now I have a $80 worthless camera. BTW - I have over 20 years of experience soldering and repairing electronics. I should have just returned the unit when I saw the installation issue, but I always try to make stuff work... my bad.

Pros: good picture

Cons: Need a giant hole in your car to fit the plugs. Do not clip the wire and reconnect as it will damage the product.

Nice Camera.

Good Product - Poor Documentation

Written By Russ B, Illinois on Tuesday, June 30, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Quality product with poor documentation. It took a couple of calls to Crutchfield's excellent tech-help-line to get me comfortable enough to dive in, but in the end the product worked very well. To be fair, the documentation provided was not from Crutchfield, and maybe they're working on creating some of their own, which would resolve all questions.

Pros: It worked right away.

Cons: A little pricey compared to other similar products - but they don't come with Crutchfiled's excellent support!

Written By Mike Tice, Alabama on Sunday, June 14, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Installed on 1998 GMC Sierra Z71 pickup. Camera works as expected and has a good picture. Well satisfied. Connected to a Jensen VX7012.

Pros: Installs easily on license plate and operates like it should.

Cons: Nothing on the camera itself. Crawling under my vehicle to run wiring and finding somewhere to enter the cab of my truck with the wiring was a little aggravating. I went through the grommet that the gear shift cable runs through and that seemed to work out pretty good.

Great picture!

Written By EricS, Illinois on Thursday, May 14, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Overall I like the quality of the picture from the Accele RVCLPMB backup camera. It's not very aesthetically pleasing as it sits on top of the license plate and also covers part of my plate where the registration stickers are placed. Install was a bit tricky on my 2007 Toyota Sequoia as the license plate is on the lift gate, and the lift gate has a window that lowers into the door.

Pros: Good quality image.

Cons: Covers up part of registration sticker on plate. Tricky install on lift gates.

Clear View

Written By RB, Georgia on Sunday, April 26, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Works as expected. Easy to see what is behind the vehicle. Easy to adjust. Installation was time consuming because of having to run all the wires and hide them. It was not difficult, just time consuming. I also looked at some onlinee videos prior to install and that helped a lot because there are very little instructions that come with the camera.

Pros: great view and works well

Cons: installation time but worth the install savings

Nice Camera

Written By dwinkley, Texas on Monday, April 20, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Very nice unit, so much sturdier, better picture etc than another cheaper one I bought for the other car. Bolted up in seconds (which means can come off just as fast so I'm working up another way to make it more difficult to remove), plenty of cable for a F350 long bed pickup, instant "on" with great picture. Can't go wrong with this unit.

Pros: Lenghty of cable, sturdy housing, excellent picture.

Cons: easy on means easy off if someone wants it (and is willing to cut the cable)

Camera works as advertised. Installation was ok, and rotation helps with alignment.

Pros: Works well in low light conditions

Written By Anonymous, Santa Rosa, Ca. on Sunday, February 22, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Good unit. I use it to line up the ball hitch with the different trailers I tow. It took a bit of getting use to and adjusting the contrast and tint to be able to see what is going on

Pros: Once adjusted and with a little practice I can line up the ball with the hitch pretty well

Cons: The picture is not very clear, more on the fuzzy side even after playing with the tint and contrast adjustments.

Great camera for the money. Mounted on center of the underside of my bumper on my 2015 Jeep Unlimited. Broad angle of view. You could spend more on a camera but why when this camera does everything you'll need.

Pros: Works well in the dark like the grid lines camera swivels so you can mount in different locations

Seems good for price

Written By PKI, Glen Allen, VA on Sunday, January 11, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have had it installed for a week and it seems great so far. I like the guidelines, but need to adjust the angle to make the red/yellow/green lines make any sense. Or just get used to them.

Pros: Very clear, bright, wide angle picture. Frame seems to be durable metal construction & good looking Straightforward installation, though instructions were not detailed Cable provided was long enough to route inside car to front in a Sequoia.

Cons: RCA plugs required a larger hole than previous camera and made routing the cable to front more difficult. Center contact snagged in a rubber conduit and broke off, but I was able to solder another RCA on. Notch in frame to allow cable to run under only allows for mounting on top of plate. I solved this by taking the four small screws out and flipping camera over. On my car, I wouldn't be able to get to the adjusting screws if I hadn't flipped it, so it solves both issues.

I had it professionally installed in a Toyota (07) minivan. using a Jensen radio. It is not very clear nor bright. Part of this may be the tilt of the screen as the outside light glares on the view screen. It also is not very bright and just a bit grainy.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Works great and good picture. Had in my truck for 5 months before I got around to 100% fixing it.. INSTALL: Everyone kept saying connect to reverse lights. Wasn't so simple. My reverse lights did not give enough power for the camera. I had to plug the power cable to the 12v trailer control plug on my truck (next to the camera) and then got extra wire I had laying around, about 2ft and connected it to the small rca red remote power wire so it could reach my reverse lights.. The camera gets enough power now and the remote wire connected to the reverse lights tells my screen when I put it in reverse.

The camera looks nice and works well, but I expected better quality for the price.

Pros: Nice finish. Works well. Image quality is good, even in the dark. You can disable the built in grids and annoying flashing "STOP" sign by cutting a little white wire.

Cons: The video wire broke when pulling it through the chassis. The wire is barely long enough to reach the front of a Honda Odyssey.

Written By Jeff G, Davidson, NC on Wednesday, October 15, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Good camera for the money. Guidelines that are superimposed on the rear view could be improved and we'd like to see Crutchfield offer better installation instructions but the overall experience and final result is good.

Pros: Good picture both day and night.

Cons: Guidelines which are superimposed on the camera view to aid in backing up appear to extend more towards the sky than level with the ground. Installation instructions were sparse.

Written By Joe M, Philadelphia, PA on Monday, July 14, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The picture quality on this camera is great. The guide lines are a nice touch (you can disable them as well). Also the ability to run the reverse signal wire with the video helps.

The overall installation on the other hand is horrid. The cabling is so thick at places and is not detachable which makes getting it into the car a real feat of patience and determination. I actually resorted to drilling a hole through the trunk lid to get it into the car. I suspect this is designed for an suv or a vehicle with some sort bigger license plate bulb opening.

Pros: great picture quality optional guide lines

Cons: installation is a pain wiring should be either detachable or smaller

Pros: Great Picture, works in low-light without infrared, low cost

Cons: covers the top part of the license plate that says "Georgia", don't know if this is legal or I will eventually get in trouble

No more blind spots

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Installed this on a customized 05 Mustang. The car already had blind spots and after the customization it had a lot less. Kind of joked that is was a go forward car only. Not anymore - the ranger of vision this camera picks up lets you see everything when you hit reverse and in color - really cool. I'd recommend this for anyone looking for a rear view camera.

Pros: Comes with all the mounting hardware and connecting cables - I think it was 15 foot.

Cons: Could use a little more instruction on installation wiring - I've been in electronics for over 40 yrs but for a novice it is a very poor write up.

Illegal in Arizona

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Looks good our of the box, very contemporary an all that. But when I positioned it onto the license plate bracket, I discovered that it covered the state name. In Arizona that's illegal (since 2009). That's not Accele's fault, some/many states do not have that restriction and, had I been paying closer attention to the picture when I ordered it, the issue would have been readily apparent. I only post this review as an advisory to prospective buyers; check with your DMV before buying ANY license plate camera. BTW, customer service was very helpful with the return and emailed me a prepaid UPS label. No complaints at all.

Pros: Looks good, probably works fine.

Cons: Not legal in some states. Crutchfield might have mentioned that in the overview.
