Pioneer's tiny ND-BC4 rear-view camera measures less than an inch in all dimensions, so you can mount it unobtrusively on the back of your car. The view, however, is expansive, as the camera supplies a 135-degree view to the rear of your vehicle. Hook it up to any receiver with a composite video rear-view camera input, and you've added an extra measure of safety to your car, truck, or RV.

This mighty mite of a camera renders a detailed 270,000 pixel resolution color image, and boasts Lux Automatic Luminance Control for a clear picture in bright or dim conditions. Warranty: 1 year.

Pioneer ND-BC4

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

So I did some comparison shopping and decided this as a best option, look for what kind of chip is inside of the unit. Installation was ok and had long enough cables to reach the front of my 4 door titan with a 7' bed. Quality is great and unit is very small, quite happy with it and would definetly recommend this over the other cheaper options out there.



Using the ND BC 4 on Motorhome

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The camera is compatible with my Pioneer Audio/CD/DVD receiver in my motor home and the recommended camera for installation. The cables supplied are not long enough for reaching from the back of my 32 foot coach to the radio in the dash, and extra RCA cable needed to be ordered. Once installed, the picture is beautiful and everything seems complete. One concern I have is that the camera has no mounting bracket and is simply glued to the underside of the back lip of the motor home. I am concerned about the bouncing that shall occur as well as the weather exposure, and hope the camera remains attached. A mounting bracket would be more safe, I believe.

Great Camera

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Got this item for a friend of mine, and installed it on his 2008 Fj Cruiser. We located the camera under the license plate light and ran the cables trough the inside panels of the rear door and cab all the way to the radio. The viewing angle is great considering the limitations of locations on the back of this SUV with the spare tire on the rear door. we connected the video cable to his after market Pioneer radio, taped on the backup light for the turn on signal and wired the provided power supply to 12v ignition. no problems so far and the kit comes with plenty of cable so you can use it on large vehicles.
