not very good quality

Paul from Warren, IL on 4/24/2019

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

This thing is junk, works for less than a year then stops. Contacted Crutchfield and the replaced it, now this one has quit working at less than a year again. when it was working the picture quality is good and is a timesaver as much as I keep hooking and unhooking from trailers. I just don't think it can hold up to the salt we put on the roads here in the winter. I would not recommend if you live in an area of the country with rough winters and salt

Pros: Great Picture

Cons: not quality built, cheap plastic will not hold up long term in extreme environments

Great possibilties!!!!

Crutchfield customer from Hayward, CA on 3/31/2019

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

It's an after market camera. It shows great during the day time! But really graining during low light conditions. But to be honest with you...I have a 2017 Mercedes, and it's camera doesn't show much better during low light conditions either. I'm sure my issues with this could be resolved with a little more effort on my part.

Pros: Easy install

Cons: Although the camera itself is plug and play...it may take a little more effort during low lighting conditions to get that superb image!!

Bought it in September 2018 and it was great....but moisture got into the lens and it's not so great now. Unless I can figure out how to make a warranty claim, I'll have to find a better one to buy.

Pros: Easy to install.

Cons: Takes on moisture rendering it cloudy Can't take it apart to dry the moisture

Very happy with this backup camera. The mounting bracket is metal and not plastic. I also like the fact that the camera pivots to easily change viewing angle. Image is good even in low light conditions. I bought some tamper resistant screws to attach to license plate. I connected this to my Sony head unit (using it as the monitor) and it works great. So far, very happy with this purchase.

As installed, the guide lines point up into the air, not aligned to the camera view. That's confusing. It's a good looking part with fairly basic connection when you stare at it. The directions are printed on the box. I was hoping for a better image I guess? I don't have much negative to say about this product, but I'm not thrilled with the purchase.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This camera provides a wide clear image and very easy to install. My 2008 Corvette didn't come with a backup camera so this was a much needed upgrade. The license plate mount is a perfect fit and you can purchase security screws if you feel the need. The camera angle is adjustable and even though I was a bit nervous about the install, the instructions were clear and Crutchfield's awesome support is always there to help. Posi-Taps are the best way for attaching the wires to your back up light.

Pros: Clear image, easy install and license plate bracket made it a breeze to mount.

Cons: None

Very sensitive camera, picture looks good in all conditions (dark, bright, cloudy, rainy) but a little saturated at times. Installed in a 2013 Mini Countryman. Took some time running the cabling, and used a capacitor isolator to hook up to reverse light since I read that it needed it... didn't try without it.

This camera replaces a ten-year-old camera by another manufacturer that had begun to have condensation. I wasn't sure whether I wanted to have the parallel lines or not however I find they work very well. This camera performs better than I expected. The picture was taken with my headlights on, license plate lights on, backup lights on in the dark with only street lights. It is dark outside and the camery image on screen looks like it is daylight.

Overall satisfied so far in the performance day and night and the parking lines work fine for my installation , installation wise I did it myself and took my time with tapping in for power at the rear and wires are very small gauge so care needs to be taken otherwise also like the adjustability of the camera for the correct angle. Just needed to go go into the radio settings to turn on rear camera option which I didn't find right away. Otherwise very satisfied with purchase.

Pros: Works great day and night

Cons: Covers State ID when installed

Crutchfield customer from Tallahassee, FL on 11/24/2018

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

I installed this backup camera on my 2006 Tundra crew cab. Installing it was a bit of a pain because the instructions aren't great. My head unit (Pioneer AVH-201EX) has a designated reverse power wire specifically for a backup camera. In the cab, I had to run a tap wire from my reverse light power wire (behind the driver side kick panel) to the head unit's reverse power wire. The instructions tell you to tap the reverse wire to the red wire that sticks out of the RCA end on both ends of the wire. I only had to do this at the camera end, not the head unit end. This sounds confusing, but you'll understand when you see the camera and wiring. All things considered, the camera works great and provides a clear picture. I have used during the daytime and nighttime with no complaints.

Install was very easy and provided wire is lengthy to ease installation. The field of view is very clear even at night. Only downside is if you install it to the top of the plate the state name is obscured so a lower install is preferred and should still provide great visibility. The lines can be turned off which is helpful as my head unit already has them adjustable.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The camera was easy to install and provides a great image both day and night. I have some minor critiques, the camera will require you to drill a rather large hole in you trunk (big enough to fit the RCA connector through). Another minor critique is that the camera will cover the name of the state on your license plate (at least for New Jersey plates). One final critique I have (and this was my bad for not doing my research), you can't adjust the guide lines for the image from the camera. I never actually thought much about this until the install was complete and unfortunately my head unit doesn't allow me to adjust the backup cam guidelines either. That said, the guide that is overlaid on the image is pretty close to being on the mark. Overall it is a very good unit for the price point.

Nice add-on camera added to a Sony unit. Picture quality is very clear during the day and somewhat grainy at night without any outside lighting but still a decent picture. Toughest part of the install was running the wiring, During installation I ruined the video RCA cable. Totally my fault. I contacted Crutchfield support to see if I could splice another cable end to it. They ended up sending me a replacement 2nd day air even though it was my error. Best customer service ever.

Very good camera. I used every last foot of cable on a civic sedan. Might have to buy an extension for the video cable and route a trigger wire as well if you have something longer than a compact car. Worked great for me.

Easy to install, takes longer to run the wires than it did to actually install the camera itself. The directions are a little sketchy but YouTube fills in the blanks. The view is good - can see out to the sides of the truck for a few feet each way. Just like any third party camera, make sure you check the alignment etc before you try backing in super close to something.

Pros: great price easy install once i watched a youtube video or two plenty of wire provided good field of view

Cons: installation directions a little sketchy covers up state on license plate

Simple to install, two wires and you're done. It took longer to hide the wires than it did to physically install and connect the camera. The image doesn't have great perspective. Everything seems flat and it's hard to tell distance to objects.

Gridlines misaligned on three cameras

Doug R. from Buchanan, VA on 6/23/2018

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

I have bought a total of 3 of these backup cameras. All three had the exact same issue where the gridlines are not level from left to right and rotated clockwise. In other words, when mounted perfectly level on my license plate, the gridlines are not aligned. The camera and gridlines are integrated together so there is no way to adjust the alignment of the gridlines independent of rotating the mounting bracket and adding a 3/4" spacer to one side of the bracket. The camera/gridlines CAN easily be adjusted up and down by loosening the set screw. So after returning my first two cameras, I decided to completely open the 3rd camera to see if there was any internal adjustments for the gridlines. Nope. However, when I reassembled it, everything was perfectly aligned. So the problem seems to be the factory is not correctly assembling the parts. I kept my 3rd camera and the image quality is excellent. This camera is a premium price and should be premium quality including correct assembly... it is not.

Pros: -Excellent image quality

Cons: -Premium price -Misaligned gridlines on 3 separate purchases.

I purchased mine a little over a year ago and it started acting up last week. we checked all connection and verified all wiring is intact with good connections. We tested another camera and it worked fine. This camera has failed and no longer displays video. The housing also so shines of pitting. I would not recommend this product.

Pros: Easy to install

Cons: failed in less than 15 months.

Solid product. Easy to install. Crystal clear image on my Pioneer unit with nice wide angle view. This purchase was to replace my original camera, same make and model, that developed a cloudy image. The cloudiness I concluded was due to an error on my part. I believe I used a cleaning agent or car polish on the lens which caused the damaged. MY original unit was over 2 years old, kept parked outside here in MD. My son has the same camera on his truck, fully exposed to FL weather, with no issues.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I purchased this product in early April of 2018, and it stopped working 5/21/18. I was initially happy with the product, it seemed to work well and have a great picture. Yesterday, however, the picture started shaking badly, and going out of focus/having black lines going up and down the picture, much like a tv antenna trying to get signal. Near the end of the day, I reversed out of a parking spot, and the screen went black, with just "no video signal" displayed. I inspected the connections, and everything appears to be connected properly, so I'm guessing that the weather/elements have somehow infiltrated the camera and caused it to stop working. I'm going to look for a more enclosed/weatherproof camera to replace this one.

Pros: Easy to install with license plate screws

Cons: Because it sits so low, the field of view is sort of narrow, I can't see the edge of my bumpers on my 2010 Silverado, and the lines that display on the screen don't match up with the edges of my truck.

Bryan from Walla Walla, WA on 3/20/2018

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

The picture is clear during daytime, but at night is very grainy. My stock Sierra rearview mirror camera is far superior quality at night. I have seen two incorrect answers to the question can the guidelines be turned off on the camera. The answer is in in Fattic know! The answers or missed leading because they tell you you can turn off the head unit guidelines if it has it, but I have found no way to turn off the Camera guidelines which do not adjust to this Deering wheel position and run straight up high into the screen missed leading distracting. I will keep looking for a better option!

Pros: Installation was straightforward. Picture quality during the day is adequate. Appears to be well built. Blends in to the license plate.

Cons: Low light picture quality very pixelated and grainy. By far much lower quality than my stock rear view mirror camera on my 2011 sierra. Wires going to the camera have to be routed Open out of the upper edge of the camera leaving the wire exposed.

Awesome backup camera! Wide angle view, I can see my trailer and ball when I am hooking up, and it works well in low light conditions. I had a rental car with a backup camera and decided that I needed one on my truck. It was a great addition. If you hook up the power wire for the camera to the accessory wire on your stereo, you can turn the camera on any time you want from a Kenwood DMX7704S. Kinda nice if a cop is following you and you don't want to keep looking in your rear view mirror. Lol. It's a nice camera and the quality is better that I would have expected for the price.

Pros: Great picture Works well in low light Easy to install Wide viewing angle

Cons: None

Integrates flawlessly with my Sony XAV-AX200SXM. I installed it on my 2002 avalanche. Was just the right amount of wire to get to the radio. Picture is clear, even at night. I actually use the camera's backup lines over Sony's. The Sony ones are nice because they are adjustable, but the native camera lines work just fine.

I am a technician with a new car brand. I see lots of different kinds of back up cameras, as well as their quality when viewing them. I bought this camera based on some good reviews. I installed this camera despite it being kind of ugly looking, because i believed what other people had said about the camera image. Folks, its pretty bad. Very grainy, not better than most factory cameras! Not even close! Was on sale for a reason. Now I have to tear my car apart once again to remove this camera. In a 370Z Nismo, its not a fun endeavor! I feel scorched!

Pros: it worked? Kinda?

Cons: Ugly, Big, bad image daytime, awful image night time. this camera was real bad. Parking guide lines point up in the air. they arent very useful.

Wow - blew my stock Honda camera out of the water

Mike from Ft Worth, TX on 11/26/2017

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

I upgraded the receivers and other equipment in two cars, one of which (2011 Accord with NAV and all bells and whistles). I hated the stock NAV and radio ever since I got the car, and made the move to upgrade to two Sony XAV-AX100s. I knew I needed a backup camera for my other 2005 Forester since it didn't have anything, but I was surprised to find out that I would also need to get a new camera for the 2011 Accord (thanks to my Crutchfield advisor who took the time to check out everything in detail for me). He said that the Accele RVCLPMBS backup camera had a good reputation for quality, etc. I took his word for it and got one for each car. All I can say after getting them installed is HOLY COW what a difference! I was quite used to my stock Honda back-up camera, so I was completely shocked with I shifted the car into reverse and say the new picture - it looks amazingly better - like full HD. It's super bright and clear - even at night. I am so happy I took Crutchfield's advice and picked up two of these. Now it makes me wonder if the auto manufacturers are putting in $3.00 cameras. My Accord has every possible option that year, including V6, leather, NAV, top-of-the-line stereo system, etc. Now that I have my new Sony receiver and backup camera, I feel like I am up to speed with technology. I made the switch to to get Android Auto (and Apple Car Play). SO glad I did. I am so much happier with my car, and the backup camera, and the assistance from Crutchfield

Pros: Fantastic picture quality - seems like HD. Great in full daylight or darkness.

Cons: None I thought the price was a little high, but after seeing the quality, it's worth the money

This camera was easy to install and hook up. However when hooked up to my Sony AV receiver the first time it provided a mirror image. The instructions which are rudimentary at best advise cutting a small loop white wire to reverse the display. That worked fine. Secondly when backing everything on the right of my vehicle shows up on the left and vise versa. Makes it difficult when backing. Third when I adjusted the elevation of the camera downward it lost all signal and had to be replaced. I would give it two stars but Crutchfield CS was completely on top of it and had a replacement camera to me in two days.

This camera works as expected. I find the yellow and red guidelines on the display unhelpful. I'm not sure if that's because the installer mis-calibrated the device, or if I'm just not understanding what I'm seeing, but the bottom line on the display, where the word "STOP" flashes, aligns with a spot on the ground about 3 feet behind the back of the car. So I know I can safely proceed a little past the "Oh my God--STOP" warning without any concern. With that being the case, do I really need yellow guidelines that go way up my display, presumably telling me what's 15 feet behind me?

Essentially straight forward install, works as advertised with a wide fish eyed rear view. No real complaints other than I don't understand why there can't be a connect point smaller than an RCA cord. You're essentially on the hook to find a hole in your trunk lid that can pass a couple of RCA's through. I would have love to see a rubber grommet and hole size instruction included.

Pros: Straight forward wiring and install

Cons: need to drill hole large enough to pass two RCA's through. Ugh.

Great Backup Camera

Crutchfield customer from NC on 6/30/2017

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Really happy with product. Good picture day or night. Don't know how I went so long without a back up camera on my truck. Install was easy. Recommend using protective plastic wire wrap to encase the wiring and plenty of zip ties if you run the wiring under the vehicle as I did. Mounted the camera to the license plate with anti-theft bolts so hopefully nobody will mess with it.

Pros: Image quality, ease of install

Cons: Didn't get sooner.

Easy install

Wanted a back up cam for the truck after seeing how nice it was having one in my new car. This was an easy camera to install ,it just uses the license plate bolts. Was easy to hook into the reverse light wires and once I found a rubber plug to go thru to get the wire into the cab, it was easy to hook it to my alpine head unit. The guide lines make sure I can get close to the wall, or a car, but not hit it. Handy since the truck has a long bed. The only reservation I have about the camera is that it mounts on top of the license plate. It covers up the state name completely and some small towns love to pull over cars for minor, pidly violations to make revenue.

Pros: Easy to install, good,picture, like the guide lines.

Cons: It covered up the state name on the license plate, wondering if I will get pulled over for that.

This camera works extremely well in daylight and lowlight situations, and since it mounts on the license plate, it's pretty easy to mount. Additionally, it's extremely easy to readjust the camera angle. My first backup camera, but I'm very pleased!

The grid in the back up camera is the best I have seen aftermarket wise.

Pros: Even at night the camera is visible.

Cons: routing the wires can be tricky, other then that its pretty much straight forward.

Works well, good value

CB from Hartford, CT on 5/22/2017

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

The camera works well enough for me. The unit is thick to the point of obscuring most of the space between the mounting holes on a license plate. On some states' plates (New Jersey being one) that will partially or completely obscure what state you are from, which could give a zealous cop an excuse to pull you over. I made little offset brackets that mount the camera just above the plate and lower the plate about a half-inch. The slotted mounting holes are fairly large and the tapered shape mean the mounting area isn't flat. I got the best results using stainless fender washers backed with rubber faucet washers.

Pros: Shows what's behind the car, inexpensive

Cons: can obscure information on license plate, which could technically be a violation.

James from Paso Robles, CA on 5/15/2017

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Good picture when backing up. The camera had to be removed and reinstalled because the "up" arrow was facing the wrong direction. If I had known in advance that the "up" arrow was facing the wrong direction, I would have routed the wire differently. Glad that I tested the camera before reinstalling the rear tailgate trim.

Pros: Camera provides a clear picture. Good fit with the existing license plate bracket.

Cons: The camera had to be removed and reinstalled because the "up" arrow was facing the wrong direction.

I'm enjoying my new back up camera. At first I was afraid that it would be so complicated. It's rewarding to see it work!

Pros: Mounts easily to plate screws. Clear view

Cons: Pop up warning to check the environment a bit annoying.

This a very good quality and still economical camera! Worth spending some extra $ for in comparison to the camera I installed on my other vehicle.

Pros: Very clear image. Doesn't wash out the image when the direct light is present.

Cons: Mount to license plate. Would love to have the same quality that could be bounded where my emblem is or in the place of a license plate light.

Free! Test it first...

Mark from Cape Coral, FL on 5/5/2017

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

Received free after buying a new hu and accessories. Spent time wrapping in black vinyl for looks (comes in black chrome). Ran cables, pulled out head unit for connection (camera installation was an afterthought). No picture...troubleshoot for an hour. Camera purchased for other car substituted and worked fine. This freebie was bad out of box. It happens sometimes. Should've test it first. I appreciate the gesture, but this one didn't work out for me. I have no hard feelings towards Crutchfield.

Pros: This was free after purchase of head unit.

Cons: Bad out of box. Unfortunately I spent time running the cable before testing the camera.

Features

Rearview Camera: The Accele RVCLPMS Rearview Camera is designed to provide you a clear wide-angle view from the rear of your vehicle. It can be used to assist you in backing up the vehicle, or to keep an eye on an item you are towing. It can be connected to a separate rear-view monitor or to many in-dash receivers with a composite video camera input.

Note: This camera is meant as a visual aid only; never solely rely on the camera. In addition to using the camera, always physically look to make sure everything is clear around your vehicle.

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

Color CCD: The RVCLPMS' rearview camera features a color CCD image sensor with a 960p resolution. The rearview camera offers a 170° vertical and horizontal viewing angle providing an excellent field of vision behind you in your vehicle. The rearview camera provides minimum illumination 0.1 lux.

Parking Guidelines: The camera features a three-color grid to assist you in backing into a parking space. The grid features green, yellow, and red lines to help you determine how close you are to an obstacle. You can cut the thin white wire loop to turn off this feature.

Mounting Bracket: The RVCLPMS attaches to your vehicle's existing license plate frame with its integrated metal mounting bracket (screws not included). The camera can be angled up or down after it is installed. Make sure the sticker (labeled "Up") on the back of rearview camera bracket is facing the correction direction for proper viewing image orientation (otherwise, the viewing image will be upside down).

Wiring: The rearview camera features an attached 2' power/signal cable which connects to the supplied 22' composite video cable and 3' power/ground cable. The composite video cable is then routed from outside of the vehicle through your vehicle's interior to your vehicle's display monitor or optional stand-alone monitor. The power (red) & ground (black) wires will need to be hardwired. Power can be obtained from your vehicle's reverse light circuit or from the reverse gear wire of your aftermarket stereo (if applicable). The ground will need to connected to your vehicle's metal chassis.
