About the Accele RVCLPMB

Thin rear-view camera for your license plate

The safety of those behind your vehicle depends on you having a good view when you're backing up — especially when something's too small to be seen with your regular mirrors. Accele's RVCLPMB rear-view camera mounts on the top or bottom of your license plate to make sure you can get the full picture, from the best angle. You can even swivel the little camera in its housing for a better shot.

Thin rear-view camera for your license plate

The safety of those behind your vehicle depends on you having a good view when you're backing up — especially when something's too small to be seen with your regular mirrors. Accele's RVCLPMB rear-view camera mounts on the top or bottom of your license plate to make sure you can get the full picture, from the best angle. You can even swivel the little camera in its housing for a better shot.

The sleek water-resistant metal case almost disappears on your license plate frame, adding a cool stealthiness to the design. The CCD-based color camera shows a clear image even under extreme low-light conditions.

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.

Picture isn't very clear.

Pros: Fairly easy to install.

Cons: Cut out for the wire means you either pinch the wire or install the thing on the bottom screws if you have them. Picture quality is only decent in certain light. Not good at all in sunny or dark light.

Chris from Greenfield, IN on 1/26/2017

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Works great! Good picture, I haven't decided weather I will keep the "lines" in the picture or not. If you don't want them you simply cut a wire and they go away. I like that the included RCA cable had a built in 12 volt wire inside of it. This way you only have to tap into your back-up lights, you don't have to go searching under your dash for the signal wire going back to the back-up lights. The less cutting/splicing into factory wiring the better IMO.

Pros: Good picture. Good in low light. RCA cable has built in "sister" wire for 12 volt feed to head unit.

Cons: None yet

Nice camera - needs slightly more configuration flexibility

James from Keller, TX on 1/3/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Installed on 2007 Nissan Maxima. Image quality is good. Doesn't allow as much tilt of camera as I would like for this car. The cable for the camera inside the bracket keeps you from being able to tilt the camera too much up or down. I ended up taking the mounting bracket apart and flipping the bracket upside down and gave myself another couple of degrees of tilt (needed to be lower). More than acceptable now but not perfect. Overall pleased.

Pros: Takes a nice picture - resolution is good.

Cons: Angle of camera not overly adjustable

This is a horrible camera. The perspective & guides are completely off with no adjustment possible. I don't know why the sales representative recommended this camera. I would have been happy to have bought a more expensive camera that did the job properly.

Pros: None!

Cons: Horrible perspective view guides have no relevance. too late to change after installation.

Replaced a Monsoon factory radio in 2006 Pontiac G6 with Pioneer AVH-X5800BHS head unit. This camera was easy to install. The extra wire on each end of the video cable was very helpful. Hooked the extra wire into the reverse light instead of having to find the trigger lead in the shifter.

Pros: Extra lead in video cable for camera trigger in reverse.

Cons: none

Works well so far, clear video and good color. Easy to install, looks better than having a little box for the camera. Like the swivel of the camera, can get it just right, others don't do that. The backup guide lines are colored, helps with depth perception, good idea.

Pros: Good video, sharp, good color, depth perception, ease of install, adjustable camera

It has instructions that are as complete as they need to be; you really need the instructions of your dash unit; OR call our friends at CRUTCHFIELD as they are the GURUS of the Installation World! The unit works well, the lines on the screen are removable but they seem to be 3 and 5 feet away in my installation and that can be a help when you're parking. Get it, you won't regret it! Don't forget the added value of being a Crutchfield customer, help isno further away than a phone call, email, or chat.

Pros: All around good deal!

Cons: None, really.

Back up lines are a plus and can be removed by clipping a wire! Resolution is good, works well in the dark. Good price, works great with my Pioneer AVH-3800BHS head unit.

Pros: The power cord for the backup signal is inlcuded in the RCA wire; which is perfect, You only have to run the one wire from the rear camera to the radio. Camera angle is adjustable. Backup lines are useful.

Cons: None

Not for a license plate on pickup trucks

Bulag from VA on 9/24/2016

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The camera is a nice idea, but on a pickup truck it won't work on the lower part of the license plate and blocks the month and year renewal on the top part (which gives the authorities an opportunity to write a ticket). Recommend you look at a backup camera that mounts on the top of the license plate, but with shorter sides.

Pros: Works

Cons: Blocks month and year of standard license plate.

I like the design, It's slim and fits right under the lip of the handle for my trunk. Camera easily adjusts to the way you want it when looking on the screen to back out. Clear picture. Can get a little hard to see if the sun or street light is facing the camera but you are still able to see what is behind you. Easy to hook up to screen. Did not come with screws to mount, I had to use my license plate screws which was fine.

Joe from Brookfield, CT on 5/1/2016

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This camera is a good alternative to a factory set up. It is bright and clear at night. It works great during the day as well. I like the lines for guidance although you can get rid of them with the simple clip of a wire. The video cable included has the wire required for power integrated , which makes it easier to install. I did not mount it on the tailgate because of the large hole required to fit the wiring through. I installed it over the step in the bumper and ran the wiring up through the rear body panel just inside by the tailgate striker. This camera is one I can certainly recommend. Installation was fairly easy and it well constructed.

Pros: Good price, clear video picture, brightness adjustment , complete wiring with integrated power / video cable.

Cons: You need to drill a fairly large hole for installation.

What I expected

Jeff from Sunbury, GA on 2/27/2016

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I installed this and connected to a newly installed Kenwood DNX892 as my car did not have a backup camera from the factory. Very easy and straight forward installation. I was able to remove my license plate light assembly and run the wire through that hole then replace the assembly with a slight notch in it for the wire. This was perfect for me as I am not a fan of drilling holes in the body of my car.

Pros: Simple installation and minimal modification required to my car. Easy way to add backup camera to an older car that did not have that option new. Good clear picture.

Cons: Wire length was short for my car, I had to run under the passenger foot well carpet to reach radio. This was probably do to the way I routed to stay with factory wire harness in the area.

You get what you pay for

kybaldridge from lexington, KY on 2/22/2016

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Easy to install but had a tough time getting from the front of the vehicle to the rear of the vehicle with the wire included. Clarity on the camera is better than I would have expected but I was disappointed that the guide lines (on screen) don't lead you straight back. They are tilted to the right and there is no way to adjust. Up/Down adjustments are very easy. Knowing what I know now, I would have bought another camera but this one isn't so bad that I would pay for another camera at this time.

Pros: ease of installation, clarity of camera. The biggest 'pro' is the guidance provided by the Crutchfield team. I don't have enough space to explain how helpful they were with the installation and follow-up to the installation. Crutchfield has a VERY knowledgeable support team and they come in handy!

Cons: amount of wire included and guide lines on screen are off-center

The camera has a good picture. It does not have any warning sounds. Bright clear picture. Easy to install. You may need longer license plate bolts in order to attach it to a plate cover. I had to remove my plate cover and attach it directly to my license plate.

Pros: Clear picture. Easy install.

Cons: The wires should have a small connection somewhere so you don't have to drill such a large hole to get the wires through if you don't have an access point large enough.

Meh.

The Golden Pickle from Pennsylvania on 10/24/2015

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This is a... decent camera for the price. It's way too bulky though in my opinion, but does seem very solid (all metal housing). Covers up my registration sticker. The instructions sucked. When there are numerous misspellings on the packaging, it kind of gets me worried about the quality of the product. It's a simple product that you can figure out everything with trial and error. Picture quality is... meh.

Pros: Solid metal construction. Simplistic design.

Cons: Picture quality is meh. Instructions sucked. The limited instructions included on the packaging contains multiple misspellings. Way too bulky.

The camera was easy to install. The picture is grainy . It's does work at night and is a great help to hook up my rear hitch trailer. No more arguing with the wife. Had to mount it on the tailgate because I couldn't see the hitch when mounted at the license plate.

Pros: Nice long cord and the distance lines.

Cons: Grainy picture, has to be mounted one side up so the bracket has only one notch cut in it for the cord.

Better than expected

LeeA from Texas on 8/16/2015

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This was included for free, with the purchase of a Kenwood head unit, so I wasn't expecting it to be TOO nice. I'm impressed so far, the picture is better than expected, and in color. The added wire, built into the RCA plug connecting to the head unit, is a very convenient way to give the head unit a signal - I connected that wire and the power wire for the unit to the reverse lights. The only thing I don't like is that it covers up too much of the top of license plate. I vertically elongated the plate's mounting holes, allowing the plate to drop down some, so that the state lettering at the top of the plate is not totally obscured.

Pros: - FREE (with some head units, at this time) - Color picture - Picture quality - Nice broad view from the camera - Easy to wire

Cons: - obscures top of license plate

Install is not awesome

Jereme from Oregon on 7/26/2015

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The camera worked great until I needed to permanently install the unit. During pre-install checks it worked great, but when I needed to install the camera the plugs were really bulky so I clipped the wires and soldered/heat shrinked the connections to slip them through a much smaller hole in the tailgate of my 2001 Land Cruiser. It never worked again. Tech support could not tell me why so now I have a $80 worthless camera. BTW - I have over 20 years of experience soldering and repairing electronics. I should have just returned the unit when I saw the installation issue, but I always try to make stuff work... my bad.

Pros: good picture

Cons: Need a giant hole in your car to fit the plugs. Do not clip the wire and reconnect as it will damage the product.

Good Product - Poor Documentation

Quality product with poor documentation. It took a couple of calls to Crutchfield's excellent tech-help-line to get me comfortable enough to dive in, but in the end the product worked very well. To be fair, the documentation provided was not from Crutchfield, and maybe they're working on creating some of their own, which would resolve all questions.

Pros: It worked right away.

Cons: A little pricey compared to other similar products - but they don't come with Crutchfiled's excellent support!

Installed on 1998 GMC Sierra Z71 pickup. Camera works as expected and has a good picture. Well satisfied. Connected to a Jensen VX7012.

Pros: Installs easily on license plate and operates like it should.

Cons: Nothing on the camera itself. Crawling under my vehicle to run wiring and finding somewhere to enter the cab of my truck with the wiring was a little aggravating. I went through the grommet that the gear shift cable runs through and that seemed to work out pretty good.

Overall I like the quality of the picture from the Accele RVCLPMB backup camera. It's not very aesthetically pleasing as it sits on top of the license plate and also covers part of my plate where the registration stickers are placed. Install was a bit tricky on my 2007 Toyota Sequoia as the license plate is on the lift gate, and the lift gate has a window that lowers into the door.

Pros: Good quality image.

Cons: Covers up part of registration sticker on plate. Tricky install on lift gates.

Works as expected. Easy to see what is behind the vehicle. Easy to adjust. Installation was time consuming because of having to run all the wires and hide them. It was not difficult, just time consuming. I also looked at some onlinee videos prior to install and that helped a lot because there are very little instructions that come with the camera.

Pros: great view and works well

Very nice unit, so much sturdier, better picture etc than another cheaper one I bought for the other car. Bolted up in seconds (which means can come off just as fast so I'm working up another way to make it more difficult to remove), plenty of cable for a F350 long bed pickup, instant "on" with great picture. Can't go wrong with this unit.

Pros: Lenghty of cable, sturdy housing, excellent picture.

Cons: easy on means easy off if someone wants it (and is willing to cut the cable)

Seems good for price

PKI from Glen Allen, VA on 1/11/2015

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I have had it installed for a week and it seems great so far. I like the guidelines, but need to adjust the angle to make the red/yellow/green lines make any sense. Or just get used to them.

Pros: Very clear, bright, wide angle picture. Frame seems to be durable metal construction & good looking Straightforward installation, though instructions were not detailed Cable provided was long enough to route inside car to front in a Sequoia.

Cons: RCA plugs required a larger hole than previous camera and made routing the cable to front more difficult. Center contact snagged in a rubber conduit and broke off, but I was able to solder another RCA on. Notch in frame to allow cable to run under only allows for mounting on top of plate. I solved this by taking the four small screws out and flipping camera over. On my car, I wouldn't be able to get to the adjusting screws if I hadn't flipped it, so it solves both issues.

Works great and good picture. Had in my truck for 5 months before I got around to 100% fixing it.. INSTALL: Everyone kept saying connect to reverse lights. Wasn't so simple. My reverse lights did not give enough power for the camera. I had to plug the power cable to the 12v trailer control plug on my truck (next to the camera) and then got extra wire I had laying around, about 2ft and connected it to the small rca red remote power wire so it could reach my reverse lights.. The camera gets enough power now and the remote wire connected to the reverse lights tells my screen when I put it in reverse.

Joe M from Philadelphia, PA on 7/14/2014

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The picture quality on this camera is great. The guide lines are a nice touch (you can disable them as well). Also the ability to run the reverse signal wire with the video helps. The overall installation on the other hand is horrid. The cabling is so thick at places and is not detachable which makes getting it into the car a real feat of patience and determination. I actually resorted to drilling a hole through the trunk lid to get it into the car. I suspect this is designed for an suv or a vehicle with some sort bigger license plate bulb opening.

Pros: great picture quality optional guide lines

Cons: installation is a pain wiring should be either detachable or smaller

Works great and nice pic linked with my JVC KW-V20BT

Pros: Cable was long enough, nice pic. Only about 1 to 1.5 sec for camera to turn on and display once shift into reverse

Cons: Wiring, but you know that when you buy it. Easy to run wires just time consuming to make them look like a professional install, but wired is better than a wireless option.

I installed this along with a Sony DVD/ navigation system in my crew cab F350. Cable was plenty long enough. The picture looks great, however, I can't get the camera centered on my truck. It is offset by enough to inflict iritation of my OCD. I tried to slide it left and right and even put washers behind one side but it didn't help. Will check in with tech support tomorrow n

Pros: Cheap, good quality picture

No more blind spots

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Installed this on a customized 05 Mustang. The car already had blind spots and after the customization it had a lot less. Kind of joked that is was a go forward car only. Not anymore - the ranger of vision this camera picks up lets you see everything when you hit reverse and in color - really cool. I'd recommend this for anyone looking for a rear view camera.

Pros: Comes with all the mounting hardware and connecting cables - I think it was 15 foot.

Cons: Could use a little more instruction on installation wiring - I've been in electronics for over 40 yrs but for a novice it is a very poor write up.

Illegal in Arizona

PhxRick from Phoenix, AZ on 4/12/2014

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Looks good our of the box, very contemporary an all that. But when I positioned it onto the license plate bracket, I discovered that it covered the state name. In Arizona that's illegal (since 2009). That's not Accele's fault, some/many states do not have that restriction and, had I been paying closer attention to the picture when I ordered it, the issue would have been readily apparent. I only post this review as an advisory to prospective buyers; check with your DMV before buying ANY license plate camera. BTW, customer service was very helpful with the return and emailed me a prepaid UPS label. No complaints at all.

Pros: Looks good, probably works fine.

Cons: Not legal in some states. Crutchfield might have mentioned that in the overview.

Pros: Works

It's a great camera for the price. I was thinking of investing in a more expensive camera and doing a permanent custom install, but I was afraid I wouldn't get the right camera angle. After reading the reviews I'm glad I went with this. It's actually more of a "black chrome" finish, which is a plus since it doesn't look like your run-of-the-mill license plate back-up camera, and I love the adjustability of the camera angle. Some have commented on poor night quality but I disagree. Yes it's a bit grainy in the evening, (much like a regular photo camera would be in low light) but it's still much sharper than I expected.

Pros: Price is right, adjustable camera angle, nice finish.

Reasonable camera for the price, watch for faulty parts

Giggity from VA on 8/14/2013

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This camera is what you would expect for the price. The picture quality is good enough for its purpose - any people/objects in the camera's field are clearly visible, and the delay for things to appear on screen is short. (Fraction of a second) My main gripe is that my unit came with a faulty RCA cable, of all things. It greatly increased the install time as I had to troubleshoot the problem - and of course the cable was one of the last things I checked. I bought a replacement RCA cable locally rather than call Crutchfield since I wanted to finish the install the same day - so that defect put me out a few extra bucks. Given the generic nature of the product, I'd assume defect rates are higher than the name brands - so if you're willing to risk it, this certainly is a good deal cheaper than the Pioneer/Kenwood cameras. This camera comes with range lines, which is nice, though you can disable that by cutting a cord if you prefer. Splicing the power line into the reverse taillight isn't fun, but not terribly complicated if you have Posi-tap connectors for the job. (This product should come with one!) Another plus is that it comes with a license plate bracket. If you want to mount on the license plate, this is an even better deal - as the name brands that offer plate brackets don't include them with the camera and charge an excessive amount for them. Buy a RCA extension cable if you have a larger car. The length of this cable wasn't sufficient for my Grand Caravan.

Pros: Price Range lines Comes with license plate bracket

Cons: Faulty RCA cable RCA cable too short for my minivan No posi-tap connector included

I did need all of the vertical adjustment to get it to see low enough to help with parking.

Pros: Quality picture, decent price looks good.

Cons: Instructions.

Good, could be better.

Simple install, instructions are not detailed so some technical understanding is needed. Picture quality isn't the best but it is a backup camera not a bluray movie. Video cable is on the short end, although it was just long enough for my 2008 Colorado some bigger trucks will need a longer cable. Also the cable hole on the bracket so you don't pinch the wire was on the bottom so when mounting it on top of the license plate the cable is coming out of the bottom then wrapping around the top. I think they should have made a slot on both top and bottom for either mounting locations.

Pros: Looks great. Works great.

Cons: Picture quality. Vague instructions. No options in cable length.

First, the instructions in no way instruct you as to the way to install this camera. Secondly, the video quality is less than expected.

Pros: Mounts easily

Cons: Everything else

I love this camera. It has a great range. I mounted it on my 03 Sequoia and have had great success with it. It works wonderful with my new Pioneer deck. I like it because it is easily adjustable. The biggest thing is to get the viewing area exactly how you like it. I needed mine angled more downward to see things in my garage and when street parking. Others might want it angled higher to see kids playing behind them. Either option works wonderfully. I really like how slim and easy it mounts on my truck.

Pros: Easy of mount and angle range

Cons: None so far

awesome camera

Jared from Va Beach, VA on 4/10/2013

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Awesome camera. Very clear image. The fisheye from the wideangle lens is a little bit to get used to. Installed in a 99 dodge ram quad cab long bed. Had plenty of wire in the kit. One part of crutchfield said it comes with 16' of cord and the other says 24'. I'm leaning more towards the 24' coming in the kit. Instructions are a little vague though. Took a little common sense, (and a working knowledge considering I'd just done it 2 days before). lol. All in all an awesome product and the perfect addition to any full size pickup as mine is on 35's and is about a chore to park on a good day. lol! That being said i recommend this to everyone in the market!

Pros: awesome picture even at night, adjustable, plenty of cord for full size long wheelbase truck,

Cons: vague instructions

Daniel from Nocona tx on 3/14/2013

Not a bad price for a stylish great working camera but if installing into a larger vehicle you will need a longer composite video cable (25' is what I needed on my 2500 quad cab)

Pros: Very stylish and useful

Cons: Cable not long enough and no type of detailed instructions for installation

chode from easthampton,ma on 2/22/2013

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

so far this is a great camera for the price. very durable feeling and has an attractive black chrome finish. the backup grids work very well and are accurate as i tested this on my trash can. install was a bit tricky on my 08' D.C. Tundra and i had to buy a 24' video cable (perfect length) as the 16' one that came with it did not even come close. the screen is crisp in the day and night is a bit snowy but comfortable visible. this looks great on my D.D. Pioneer 7" screen and now i have a bit more confidence backing up.

Pros: price, fit&finish, very good picture

Cons: NO INSTRUCTIONS and short video cable for trucks

Great buy for the money, looks good and seems to be made of quality materials. Works great, no complaints. Wire up the camera before you install it, and save yourself 5 minutes turning it over. Don't be dicouraged by all of the cons, just want to inform of everything. Would definately buy again/recomend to a friend.

Pros: price looks easy install nothing fancy, does what it is supposed to great viewing angle

Cons: Can't tell which way is up on camera, but easy install makes up for that no paperwork, directions, or anything. just camera in box. Thank you tech help, Crutchfield customer service is outstanding. not picture quality clear like $200+ cameras, but it does job, and good enough to see anything on ground Cable just long enough to reach dodge ram quad cab

Nice looking mount,, but no installation directions

Doug from Lake Worth, Fl on 8/5/2012

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

It is good looking and is made of quality materials. The video image is quite good. There is some image saturation when backing towards the sun. Although installation is pretty obvious, I was dissatisfied with the lack of any installation instructions regarding which way is up and whether or not the visible screws are for adjusting the up/down angle of the camera??? Still haven't tried the adjustment beacuse the image is not too far off in vertical adjustment. I think that angling it down somewhat would make the sunlight overexposure problem less pronounced. There is an overlay which appears on the image to indicate danger zones when backing, but no audible collision imminent warning as in the newer factory installed rear view camera / sensors.

Pros: Quality, Appearance

Cons: Lack of installation / alignment directions. Video saturation with strong light sources.

It can be connected to a separate rear-view monitor, or to many in-dash audio-video head units with a composite video or rear-camera input.

Parking Assistance: The camera features a three-color grid to assist you in backing into a parking space. The grid features green, yellow, and red lines (with a flashing "Stop!") to help you determine how close you are to an obstacle.

Note: The camera does not have a proximity sensor or audible warning system.

Compatibility: The Accele RVCLPMB rearview camera features a standard composite video output (RCA plug) which makes it compatible with virtually any mobile video monitor featuring a rear view camera input.
