Overview: The Alpine HCE-C117D rear view camera directly
connects to your Alpine Mobile Multimedia/Navigation head unit to give you a view of the area directly behind your vehicle. This small camera should be installed on the rear bumper by the license plate of your SUV, truck,
or car. It is compatible only with those Alpine head units with a dedicated
Alpine camera input. It does not include a hideaway box, as some rear view
cameras require. The package consists of the rear view camera in a waterproof
housing, adjustable mounting bracket, as well as necessary cable and hardware for installation.

Note: The HCE-C117D includes a proprietary video cable and does
not offer a composite video connection.
Rear View Camera: The rear view camera gives you a wide
viewing angle of the area immediately behind your vehicle. It is
designed to give you high visibility in daylight or at night. The clear, color
images appear on the LCD screen of your compatible Alpine Mobile Multimedia head
unit to help you see obstructions behind the vehicle as you back into a parking
spot, or to keep an eye on cargo you may be towing. The image provided by the

in your rear-view mirror. Other features of the camera include:
