If safety and maneuverability are important to you, Alpine has created the Cadillac of rear-view cameras. The HCE-C305R Active View camera system uses impressive video and motion-sensing technology to help you get in and out of tight places and navigate through almost any parking situation. Four camera views, audible alerts, and motion detection ensure that you can back up with confidence.
Here's how it works
The camera installs on the rear of your vehicle, and its cable connects to a processor box installed up front, which connects to any multimedia receiver with a RCA camera input. When you shift into reverse, the camera gives you a clear view of what's behind you. Motion sensors warn of any pedestrians, animals, vehicles, or other moving objects. The object is initially highlighted in yellow, which switches to red as the object gets closer. An audible alert also beeps faster and faster as the object approaches.
Four different views
This tiny camera allows you to select from four different views: standard, panorama, ground view, and split left/right view. The camera automatically switches to its downward "ground view" when an object is really close — ideal for trailer hookups. The camera comes with its own mounting bracket, but you can pair it with Alpine's KTX-C10LP license plate mounting kit, for a handy and stealthy installation solution.
