Auto & Manual Camera View: You can view the camera video at any time by pressing the camera icon on the navigation device screen. You can toggle between the map and the camera video in this manner. You can also wire the camera power to your reverse lights, and the navigator will automatically display the camera every time the vehicle is shifted into reverse, and revert back to navigation mode with shifted into a forward gear.
Guidance Lines: Guidance lines provide an approximate visual representation of the vehicle's path when in reverse. To provide the most accurate reference, you must initially align the guidance lines with the backup camera from your Garmin GPS navigator.

Mounting & Wiring: The camera comes with an adjustable mount that allows you to mount the camera on a horizontal or vertical surface on the outside rear of your vehicle. The wireless transmitter mounts on the interior of your vehicle (using tape/screws) and hardwires to your vehicle's rear lights, as well as plugs into the backup camera.
Note: You should take note of which direction is up when testing the camera view before permanently mounting the camera.
