Rear View Camera: The rear-view camera
provides a mirror output, so whatever the driver sees on the right side is what
is on the right side of the vehicle. The back-up camera employs a CMOS
imaging sensor with a resolution of 640 x 480. It provides a wide angle
view of 120° horizontal x 100° vertical, so you can see people and objects coming into view behind your
vehicle. The rear-view camera mounts to your vehicle's license plate and
connects to the included wireless transmitter.
Wireless Transmitter: The back-up camera mounts on your
vehicle's license plate with the 2.4GHz wireless transmitter located in the truck or
other protected area of your vehicle. The wireless transmitter is weather proof and water resistant
(IPX4 rating). The back-up camera attaches to the transmitter via a DC cord and
composite video cable. The transmitter also requires a power/ground connection
to your vehicle's reverse light circuit. The wireless transmitter will
wirelessly transmit the back-up camera's video signal to the system's wireless
Wireless Receiver: The 2.4GHz wireless receiver mounts at the front of your
vehicle, next to your compatible Magellan RoadMate GPS navigator. The wireless
receiver connects to your Magellan RoadMate GPS navigator via a 3.5mm A/V
connector. The wireless receiver then receives the back-up camera's video signal
wirelessly via the connected wireless transmitter and displays the signal on
your connected Magellan RoadMate GPS navigator's screen.
12-Volt Power Adapter: The Magellan Wireless Back-up Camera System
includes an 12-Volt/cigarette lighter power adapter to power the wireless
receiver and your Magellan RoadMate GPS navigator. The 12-volte power adapter
features two mini-USB (type-B) connectors.
License Plate Mount: The Magellan Wireless Back-up Camera includes an
integrated license plate mount that easily attaches to your vehicle's license
plate. The back-up camera features a dustproof and waterproof housing (IP67
rating) to protect it against wet & dusty conditions. The camera can be adjusted
downward to 45° for truck and SUV mounting.
Note: The license plate mount has two
mounting holes spaced between 6.75" to 7.375" apart.
Auto Rear-View Mode: When you put your vehicle in reverse,
your Magellan GPS navigator will switch from navigation mode to rear view mode,
allowing you to see what is behind you; including children, pets, and toys. In
order for this feature to work, the wireless transmitter's power and ground
wires must be connected to your vehicle's reverse light circuit.
3.5mm A/V Output: Because the Magellan Wireless Back-up Camera system
is fitted with a male 3.5mm A/V output connector, it is also compatible with
other video systems that have a 3.5mm A/V input.
