Rear-view reassurance for your RV, trailer, or commercial truck

If you're an RV driver or own a trailer, you probably already know about the great guidance offered by Garmin's dezl 760LMT and RV 760LMT portable navigators. And if you own one of those navigators, Garmin's BC 20 rear-view camera makes a great safety add-on, sending a wireless signal from the back of your vehicle to the navigator's screen with the touch of a button. You'll have a clear view behind you, making it safer when you put your larger vehicle in reverse.

Simply mount the camera to the rear of your vehicle, then tap into your back-up lights or another power source. This weather-resistant camera can transmit images up to 45 feet away, depending on the installation. An included mount for your navigator receives the camera's wireless signals, then transfers them to your dezl 760LMT or RV 760LMT's rear-view camera input. If you've wired the system to have the image display automatically when you put your vehicle in reverse, it'll switch back to your navigator's normal screen as soon as you shift into a forward gear. Garmin recommends that you check their website to ensure your GPS navigator has the required software updates needed for camera functionality.

Note: The camera's effective transmission range may be affected by installation of the transmitter near or on metal siding or appliances. Please consult the owner's manual for more details.

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.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The camera works as described. Good color and picture. However the issues I do have is that since the camera is wifi. It has about a 2-3 sec delay while backing up. I find myself backing up a bit, wait for camera to catch up then move again... Wish it was more real time without the delay...

Pros: Good picture

Cons: 2-3 second delay and no sound

Product Research


Overview: The Garmin BC 20 is a wireless backup camera, designed for use with the RV 760LMT and dēzl 760LMT personal navigation devices (PND). In addition to the camera, the package includes a transmitter and wireless PND mount (which contains the wireless receiver). The BC 20 has a range of approximately 45 feet. If needed, an optional 50' extension cable is available.

Camera: The BC 20 camera has a 1/3.7" CMOS image sensor with a resolution of 640 x 480. It has a wide 140° horizontal and a 115° vertical angle. Designed to withstand the rigors of highway travel, the BC 20 camera is IPX-7 waterproof rated, with an operating temperature range of -40° to +185° F.

Camera Mount: The camera comes with an adjustable mount that allows you to mount the camera on horizontal or vertical surfaces. You can tilt the camera from 0° to 90° for the best viewing angle.

Note: You should take note of which direction is up when testing the camera view before permanently mounting the camera.

Wireless System: The transmitter and receiver operate on the 2.4 GHz ISM radio band. The transmitter sends the camera's video signal to the navigator's receiver mount up to 45 feet away. The transmitter mounts on the exterior of your RV or rig, about 3' from the camera. The receiver is integrated into the device mount, and replaces the mount that comes with the RV 760LMT or dēzl 760LMT.

Camera Viewing: You can view the camera video at any time by pressing the camera icon on the navigation device screen. You can toggle between the map and the camera video in this manner. You can also wire the camera power to your reverse lights, and the navigator will automatically display the camera every time the vehicle is shifted into reverse, and revert back to navigation mode with shifted into a forward gear.

I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: It looks like the wireless backup camera can't be used in portrait mode. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. [ Krissy  Jul 12, 2015 ]  Staff
As long as you have the bluetooth device within 30 or so feet of the Garmin it should work in the back of the car. This camera does not "record" images it only shows them in real time so it would not be suitable for a hit and run camera. [ DONALD E  Feb 12, 2015 ]
Stella, Yes, this camera can be installed on the inside of your back window but it is designed to mount externally, such as on a license plate frame. As far as capturing an image of a vehicle behind you, no. The camera gets its power supply via your reverse light circuit and is only active while your vehicle is in reverse. Can it be done? Absolutely but you're going to need a system that records and has storage, such as those found on police/emergency vehicles. [ Gary  Feb 10, 2015 ]
