Overview: The Audiovox ACA240
Wireless Rear Observation System is designed to assist the driver by providing a
clear and wide image of the area behind the vehicle whenever the vehicle is
shifted into reverse. The package includes a camera that mounts to your rear
license plate and a dash-mounted 2.5" color LCD monitor. The system operates on
a 2.4 GHz wireless transmission system for sending the images from the camera to
the monitor. No signal cables are needed, however, both the camera and monitor
must be connected to a 12-volt power supply.
Note: Use this monitor and look both ways. This
product is not intended to replace existing safety procedures, but rather to
add an additional safety tool for your vehicle. Never rely solely on this product to ensure the area
behind you is clear
of children and/or obstructions.
Monitor: The ACA240 monitor has a 2.5" LCD color display
with a resolution of 960 x 234. The monitor automatically adjusts for color,
brightness, and contrast for either daytime or nighttime viewing. At night the
picture will look more like a Black & White image (this is due to the low light
level and is normal). It has an adjustable base, which can attached to the dash
by the supplied dual-sided tape. It can be powered by the supplied cigarette
lighter adapter or hardwired to the vehicle using the supplied wiring harness.
Note: The LCD monitor measures
3.25" (w) x 2.4375" (h) x 0.75" (d).
Camera: The rear view camera is mounted in a waterproof and
weatherproof aluminum housing that attaches to your vehicle's license plate. The
camera has a wide-angle 110° view.
The camera needs to be connected to the vehicle's Reverse lights which causes
the camera to come on only when the vehicle is in Reverse gear.
Note: The rear view camera measures 7.875" (w) x 1.25" (h) x 1.75" (d).
Wireless Transmission: The camera
transmits the image of the area behind the vehicle on the 2.4 GHz frequency with
a maximum range of approximately 15'. The
monitor remains in Sleep Mode until it receives a video signal from the camera.
Because this is a wireless system, the monitor is always watching for a video
signal. It is possible for the monitor to receive signals
from other wireless cameras in the area operating in the 2.4 GHz range, such as
security cameras, baby monitors, or even other backup cameras (this is normal).
