Great so far!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Working for a month with no issue. I'm interested to see how it lives through the Maine winter.

Pros: Easy install.

Cons: There is a large connector in the wires that must transition from inside/outside the vehicle. Although not impossible to use, a smaller connector would have been easier to push through the firewall. Additionally, the connector that ended up on the outside for my installation does not seem weatherproof in anyway. I wrapped it with CoaxSeal for weatherproofing purposes. Good camera, unimpressive wiring. I'm curious if other models/brands have improved hardware or if it's the same everywhere.

Compatibility: This JVC rear-view camera (KV-CM10) is designed for use with JVC in-dash monitors. However, the standard composite video output (RCA plug) extension cable makes it compatible with virtually any mobile video monitor.

Chassis: The camera is built into a compact waterproof aluminum case, making it perfect for mounting outside the vehicle.

CMOS Optics: The 1/4" color CMOS image sensor has approximately 310,000 pixels to deliver a high quality picture.

Wide Angle Lens: The 135° horizontal and 105° vertical viewing angles provide an excellent near field view of anything behind you. The camera gives you a mirror image for rear view confirmation.

Illumination Range: The rear-view camera provides an illumination range of approximately 0.9 to 100,000 lux. It offers less light distortion from nearby light sources.

Power Supply: The hideaway power supply box features a 2-pin Molex plug on one end that connects to the camera extension harness which plugs into the camera's cable proprietary connector, supplying power and signal. The length of the camera cable is 26.5' when combined with the camera extension harness. The extension harness also includes a 59" RCA output lead that feeds the signal to your monitor. On the other end of the hideaway power supply box is a 4-pin Molex plug that connects the power harness which includes the 39" power wire (red), 39" ground wire (black) and 6" reverse sensor wire (purple/white) which all will all need to be hardwired to your vehicle's electrical system.

Note: The hideaway power supply box measures 0.835" (w) x 0.865" (h) x 2.765" (d).

Mounting: The rear-view camera comes supplied with a metal mounting bracket that attaches to the camera with two supplied machine screws (already installed), and attaches to your vehicle with its self-adhesive backing or included mounting screw. Once the camera is installed in the mounting bracket the camera's angle can be adjusted to work in your application.
