About the Kenwood CMOS-230

Any car will do

Kenwood's CMOS-230 rear-view camera is tiny — less than a cubic inch — so it's a natural fit on the rear of almost any vehicle. Once installed, shifting into reverse will let you check out the view behind you on your receiver's video screen. The camera captures a 128-degree horizontal view and 103-degree vertical view, so you'll really get the big picture — especially handy if you're trying to back up in a large vehicle or if you're towing something.

The 24-foot cable and harness assembly is long enough for most vehicles and includes a composite video connector, which means it'll work with almost any video receiver. Mounting bracket included.

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.

Can't tell that the picture is all that much better than a cheaper unit, and it is not a RCA connector so that makes it not directly interchangable with units that use the RCA jacks if you need to replace it later.

Kenwood CMOS-230

Crutchfield customer from Tacoma, WA on 4/7/2019

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

The Kenwood CMOS-230 is a very good back up camera, combined with the Kenwood DNX575S, the adjustable parking clearance lines are a tremendous aide for safely backing up . The camera adjusts for different levels of light from bright sun to night. Installation takes some basic skills with mechanical and automotive knowledge as you will be required to tap into the vehicles electrical system after routing the cameras power and video cable to your video component.

Pros: Great back up camera, clear, wide angle view, auto brightness compensation, works at night, combined with a compatible head end the guide lines are user adjustable

Cons: It's wired, so installation requires some skills, there are no guide lines without a compatible system using video overlays like the Kenwood DNX575S

Great backup camera. I hooked this up on my 2000 Chevy Silverado. Great picture even at night.

Pros: Nice view, easy install

Cons: No instructions specific to my truck, although the connections were simple. Had to use google for mounting ideas. I ended up mounting on top the license plate just tucked the mounting bracket behind the plate.

Expensive

Crutchfield customer from Ivins, UT on 5/23/2018

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

Not the fault of the unit, but it is overpriced for what it provides. I should have purchased a les expensive camera that does just about the same thing. Pay attention, as this is a CMOS 2xxx and the red must be connected to the red ACC wire and the black is grounded. The Kenwood DDX9905S has a "camera +" and a "camera -" coming out of the back. It is for the CMOS 3xxx. It is stated in the manual, but easy to overlook.

It works, it mounts well, wire length is sufficient. Just not as clear as I would like it to be, but that is why more expensive versions exist.

Kenwood CMOS-230

Steve from Bowling Green, KY on 1/7/2018

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

I mounted this on top the brake light above the spare tire on a 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. I was concerned about mounting it offset to center based on notes I read. This location is great for the overall view, however this is not ideal for trailer hitch views. I also found that when backing up, the brake light overpowers the iris on the camera and makes it more difficult to see. The spare tire also blocks a portion of the view. I found the camera picture to be a bit muted, not like a typical camera but sufficient for a backup camera. Overall running the wire and harness required about 3/8" holes but there was plenty of wire and the cable quality was sufficient.

Pros: Nice quality mount and long cable to run to the front.

Cons: Camera iris is impacted by bright light of brake lights so use caution with placement.

Great little camera. Tried 4 different solutions of CCD and CMOS cameras, and this one was the best. Very small size and very good picture. Would have liked to see a better connector on the wire near the camera for waterproofing purposes. But nothing a piece of heat shrink doesn't fix.

Pros: Small size, great picture, good name.

Cons: Exposed connector near camera

Love it easy install, I looked thru all the comments before I bought it and found that the complaints were not substantiated works great at night with just the backup lights on, mounted right above the license plate, not need to take apart the tail light power wire for camera is within the wire from camera to dash and connected to the reverse wire.

Pros: Easy install great field of view.

Cons: None my wife even likes it.

Great product and give much better backup image than the postage stamp size factory camera. This camera does not give guiding lines. I was not aware of this from the description. I probably would have got the multi angle version. The reason for only 3 stars is I am concerned how it needs to be mounted. It seems vulnerable to damage or misalignment since it projects from the mounting surface..... time will tell.

Great little camera!

Brian from Marietta, GA on 5/31/2017

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

Installation was actually much easier than I had anticipated. I don't really like the aesthetics of a camera that covers up the license plate, so this little camera was perfect. I have it connected to a Kenwood Excelon DDX594 head unit. Picture quality is good, and surprisingly good in low light. I had thought it would not be sensitive enough without infrared emitters surrounding the lens, but the ambient light from a streetlight and from my reverse lights was sufficient to get good image quality when backing up at night and in the early morning.

Pros: Easy installation, good image quality for a device this small, good low light sensitivity, plenty of cable length with plenty to spare.

Cons: Bracket adjustment screws on the sides are a little tricky, you'll likely need a small right-angle Philips head screwdriver.

Had to replace a cmos-200 and I got this one. I liked the 200 better but it is what it is. The only problem I have with them is where the camera connects to the rest of the harness there is nothing to protect the connection and my wires rotted after a couple years. This time I put heat shrink and then wrapped the connection with electrical tape. The camera does help hooking up to a trailer or even just backing up. Hooked up exactly like my older camera did.

My 2014 BMW 328d xDrive lacked only the back up camera from being the perfect car and after I found the elec module it was a matter of the camera. The module vendor from Brooklyn suggested the Kenwood and he had it right. The camera gives me an excellent rear view and the detail is equal to the oem camera on my pick up. Very happy with the purchase.

Pros: excellent image

Cons: it's an install procedure that is best left to the professionals.

Features

Compatibility: The Kenwood CMOS-230 universal rear-view Camera can be used as a back-up camera with Kenwood in-dash navigation and DVD receivers. However, the standard composite video output (RCA plug) extension cable makes it compatible with virtually any in-dash mobile video receiver.

Waterproof Chassis: The camera is built into a compact waterproof aluminum case, making it perfect for mounting outside the vehicle.

Super Wide Viewing Angle: The 128° horizontal and 103° vertical viewing angles provide an excellent near field view of anything behind you. The camera gives you a mirror image for rear view confirmation.

CMOS Optics: The 1/3.6" color CMOS image sensor has approximately 330,000 pixels to deliver a high quality picture.

Illumination Range: The rear-view camera provides an illumination range of approximately 0.9 to 100,000 lux. It offers less light distortion from nearby light sources.

Mounting Bracket: The CMOS-230 rear-view camera includes two brackets to either mount the camera to a horizontal or vertical surface on the outside your vehicle. Once mounted, you are able to physically adjust the angle of the camera. Make sure the camera's "Kenwood" logo is facing up.

After reading a multitude of reviews online, including Crutchfield & talking to car stereo shops, the CMOS-230 works well when connected to a Kenwood head unit. I considered the CMOS-320, but didn't feel I would use the extra features, especially for an extra $200. As usual, Crutchfield is the best place for price & great customer service!!

I imagine it should. I can't speak for jeep specifically, but I have it setup on a manual 02 Audi S4. It has pretty standard wiring. Power wires and a standard A/V video input connector. I have it connected to a Kenwood Nav head unit. It's a good camera.

[ Sean  May 08, 2018 ]

The Kenwood CMOS-230 camera uses a 1/3.6" color CMOS image sensor with approximately 330,000 pixels. As Mike indicated above however, the video resolution will depend on the screen/monitor its connected to.

This camera work with DDX99O3S.My car is HONDA ACCORD SPORT 2016, Can I replace it same factory area?
[ THOMAS  Mar 22, 2018 ]
1 answer
A
Both your stereo and this camera use the standard composite video (RCA) connection so, yes, they are compatible. The CMOS-230 is not vehicle-specific but it is very small and comes with a bracket that allows you to mount it to a horizontal or vertical surface on your vehicle.

It cannot be turned off, no. In order to use this camera on the front of the vehicle, your aftermarket monitor would have to offer a reverse (mirror) image option for it's camera input

Q
I have a factory backup camera and am aware that I will have to buy another backup camera to replace that one. Can I still have the new backup camera installed in the same area? Can I use this camera without the piece on the bottom of the camera?
[ Stacey  Jun 19, 2016 ]
1 answer
A
From my experience, most likely yes. I was able to replace my 2008 Jeep Commander factory backup camera with this exact camera. Heavy modifications were needed. A lot of waterproof apoxy etc... The housing and camera are usually separate. The installer will need to remove the factory camera from the housing, modify the housing to fit this camera and remount the housing to the vehicle. Most reliable installers/fabricators will be able to to this. This camera has a great picture and I recommend it to anyone. Also please do not expect to plug a s play this into a factory head unit... You will need an aftermarket head unit as well unless your installer is an electronic genius.
[ Brennan  Jun 19, 2016 ]
Q
I looked at the wiring diagram in the manual for this camera and am confused how the camera knows when the car is in reverse and needs to turn the rear-view display on. Is there a wire running to the reverse light?
[ Brian  Jun 14, 2016 ]
3 answers
A
Hello Brian I purchased this Camera and just installed it. Yes you want to wire the Red positive wire to a connection that turns power on only when you are in reverse. either reverse lights or what I used was the wire connection on my neutral safety switch on shifter that turns power on to the reverse lights when in reverse. If you also look at you manual for I assume the stereo connection you will probably have a wire you will need to also connect to same location as the Stereo will also need to know when Car is in reverse to bring up the Camera. Do not wire to constant on ACC.
[ JOSEPH  Jun 15, 2016 ]
A
Your head unit that this is plugged into controls it.
[ ALLAN  Jun 15, 2016 ]
A
Yes, there is a wire that you connect to let the radio/camera know to switch the display on. My son and I installed this camera in his car and ran a wire to the reverse light to activate the camera when shifting into reverse. There are other ways to connect this wire closer to the radio but we found this option to be easiest for us. Be sure your radio supports a review camera option.

[ Shawn  May 25, 2016 ]

This camera does have to be connected by hardwire and is compatible with either of these receivers as they both have an RCA type rear view camera input connector.
[ Randall  May 20, 2016 ]
A
wired only
[ James  May 20, 2016 ]

This camera has the typical RCA video connection that will need to be physically connected to 1 of the 2 RCA video inputs that either receiver offers.

Q
On the Kenwood DNX692 do you have to wait until the unit is fully booted up to see the camera display? The DNX692 boots rather slowly and I am usually done reversing before the unit has booted up fully.
[ Greg  Oct 09, 2015 ]

I have the DDX9902S and the Camera video works before the unit is fully booted up, this unit takes rather long to boot as well.
[ Timothy W.  Oct 12, 2015 ]
A
Yes, it take awhile to boot and won't work until then.
[ James  Oct 11, 2015 ]
A
No, with my Kenwood receiver the backup camera comes on immediately while the unit is still booting up, however, the guide lines are not displayed until it fully boots. I don't know if this is true for all receivers. On a side note, my reverse lights are enough to give a nearly full daylight display at night with this camera.
[ Dale  Oct 11, 2015 ]
A
Unit does not need to be fully booted to view camera - The R-Cam Interruption Setting in the camera settings needs to be set to 'On' and reverse wire activated - when in reverse the unit will immediately default to camera screen prior / during boot
