2006 crv backup camera finally working

Crutchfield customer from Longwood, FL on 3/17/2019

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Was recommended for quality, sale and 3 yr warranty. Quality of product is fine. Instructions not the best. It does not default to grid lines unless you cut the green loop. Instructions say otherwise. Crutchfield also did not say that an out from the radio I also purchased from them had a certain wire that needed to be hooked up for reverse trigger of camera or installation could mean the camera on always. Couple of calls to tech support and a smart friend helping me and finally in and working properly for my son in his Honda CR-V 2006. This project, with poor instructions from manufacturer and lack of information about the extra steps was a bump in the road. Otherwise, product is fine. Likely more expensive that other brands in the marketplace but crutchfield came through in the end and it works.

Crutchfield customer from Helotes, TX on 1/20/2019

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I went back and forth over the specs trying to get a camera with good low light performance and wide field of view. After calling in several times to discuss with different Crutchfield reps regarding their recommendations, and reading as many reviews we settled on this camera. The camera works great day or night. We were able to turn off the gridlines view pairing two of the wires together, and are using the gridlines from the head unit. We are very satisfied with this purchase.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I was very happy with the camera. Installation and setup were straightforward. I hooked this camera up to an Alpine i207 - WRA. I had to play with the settings on the Alpine to get the camera to activate when the car was in reverse, but in the end everything works as advertised.

Julie from Hackettstown, NJ on 8/18/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Installed using the license plate mount on a 2004 Tacoma. Great for what it is, picture is clear, though it does get grainy at night, but it's not terrible. It does stick out, but I knew that before I bought it. Wish my truck had a spot I could tuck a camera in, like newer cars have them under the trunk latch, since when it rains the water gets on the lens. Again, nothing terrible, it's better than trying to backup without it, especially having a truck topper on with tinted windows.

Pros: Great for the price, easy to hookup, clear picture 90% of the time

Cons: A little grainy at night, sticks out, no way to prevent rain from getting on lens

Pros: Good quality

Cons:

Good Front Camera

Ed from South Florida on 7/29/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Very easy to setup. Good quality videos. It's a good quality camera for front monitor on my truck. It captures a wide array of items in the front of my vehicle.

Pros: *Good quality. *Very easy to setup * Integrates well with factory head unit.

Cons: *Very pricey. *Picture quality in low light could be much better. *Doesn't have a mounting plate for various mounting options.

Great Camera, Clear picture

Richard from Deer Park, TX on 7/17/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great Camera! Very clear in the day and has a good viewing angle. Video is better than expected at night viewing. I installed this on my 03 Ford Expedition and now I feel so my safer when I reverse out or back into a parking spot. Installation was easy. I wired the power, ground and reverse wire to my rear tail light. Used a T tap made it super easy. If you need a Reverse camera this is a great choice.

Pros:

Cons:

Rear view issue solved

Elliot from West Hartford, CT on 7/15/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I installed this with a Pioneer AVH-3400NEX last week and it proved to be a simple installation. The directions were good and straightforward. It simply plugs into the front end, splice 2 wires and it fired right up. I decided to use the lines provided by the Pioneer which required 2 wires be connected back at the camera. My '10 Lincoln MKX needed a camera and this solved the problem nicely.

Pros: Easy to wire, nice resolution, easy to mount and adjust

Cons: None

Greg from Milledgeville, GA on 5/10/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I like this camera. The night vision is not great but adequate and met my expectation considering the low price. Installation was straightforward but a little tricky and could have been documented better with a diagram. Overall, I am quite satisfied and pleased with this purchase.

Pros: Low price and acceptable quality

Cons: So so instructions but adequate.

Backup Camera for full size pickups

Todd from Wasilla, AK on 3/17/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Works very well in daylight and still has a very clear picture at night. The main selling point for me was how long the wiring is, over 30 feet in total. I installed it on a Ram 2500 with a full size truck bed and had plenty of wire to route to the back of my stereo. If you have a long vehicle this backup camera is for you.

Pros:

Cons:

Great backup cam

Keith from Niceville, FL on 3/7/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Pros: Easy install, large FOV

Crutchfield customer from Harmony, PA on 12/17/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

We had some trouble installing this as we couldn't ID our car's reverse wire. But that was on us as we aren't experianced in auto wiring. As to the camera the clarity is great in the daytime but fairly grainy at night as others have mentioned. Still am happy with it and would buy it again for the price.

Pros: Very clear daytime image Good price

Cons: Grainy image at night

If I only had eyes in the back of my head... Wait!!!

Joe from Fairfax, VA on 12/9/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I had a guy help me install this on my 2003 Chevy Suburban and it works great on the new JVC KW-V230BT head unit. The daytime video image is clear and sharp with true to life colors. the cam comes mounted on a bracket that clips snuggly onto the top of the rear license plate. This is the best way to add rear view to a vehicle that came without such an important safety feature.

Pros: Simple to install and looks clean, no visible cabling.

Cons: non

Back-up Camera

Todd from Decatur, AL on 12/4/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Added to my 2010 Accord. With a good bit of time invested to make it look factory installed, I am very pleased. There is a nub on the camera, however, that needs modification to properly position the camera at the most functional angle to make it look better aligned on the receiver screen. Aside from that modification, the camera is very clear during the day, and pretty decent at night. Plenty or cord to run from the trunk, through panelling and dash to the receiver.

Pros: very clear picture during the day and pretty decent at night as well. Lots of cord! Great customer support from Crutchfield!

Cons: Camera needs modification in order to position at an optimum angle for camera viewability on the receiver as if factory installed.

Cons:

Good Camera

Steven from Fernandina, FL on 11/22/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Overall the camera is great. Has a good picture and was easy to set up. Nice thought of mounting behind the license plate, which makes the camera the only visible part of the product. My only complaints relate to the wiring. The connectors are so big and thick you have to drill a fairly large hole in your vehicle for an entry point. This was rather annoying and i think could have been minimized. I also would have like to see a little more lateral room for side to side adjustment to center the camera better. The holes in the mounting kit allow for a good amount of up and down adjustment but not side to side. That could have been easily added to the product by widening the mounting holes. Picture quality is really good and had plenty of cable to mount into a 2006 Dode Ram 3500 Megacab, which means it should have enough cable to mount in almost any vehicle on the road.

Pros: picture quality mounting behind license plate responsive camera

Cons: needs more lateral adjustment in bracket connectors are really thick which causes you to drill a larger hole in some vehicles without a rear entry point for wires.

Great product and typical industry leading Crutchfield service

Michael from Richmond, VA on 10/4/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I was going to use the licence plate bracket but then installed it with the optional bracket directly to the trunk. It is connected to the underside next to the license plate lights on a 2013 Hyundai Elantra sedan. Picture is good. I adjusted the angle of the camera so that the warning markers are good to prevent backing into something.

Pros:

Cons:

Camera

Kevin from Beaverton, OR on 10/2/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

For an camera at this price point, what a deal. If you are looking for a crystal clear camera, spend the money to get one. But if you are looking to have a backup camera that works and lets you get the job done then I would buy this. The video is a little on the grainy side, but you can still make out what you are backing into. The backup lines are not as close as you think. I am in the red, yet still 1.5 feet away from the object which is fine. Being this is on a pickup truck if anything does happen to the camera, I am not worried about having to pay a high price to replace it. As for installation, easy. The only hard part was figuring out were to enter the cabin space through. After that, very easy with the stereo I have.

Pros: Price, ease of installation.

Cons: Instructions not worth it.

Awesome product

James from Raleigh, NC on 9/20/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Daytime image is great. Night time image quality leaves a little to be desired, but still very usable for backing in the dark. Instructions were straightforward and installation is fairly simple and requires only basic tools. The only real problem with installing this and connecting to my JVC KW-V330BT receiver was getting the head unit to switch to camera when I put the truck in reverse. I could not locate the reverse wire under the dash or hood (not for lack of trying). As a workaround, I ran an 18ga wire back to my tail light and tapped into the reverse light there. Works like a charm.

Pros:

Cons:

Super wide viewing angle

Roy from Maysville, KY on 9/19/2017

Cons:

Good picture, easy to install

Chuck from Irvine, CA on 8/13/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The camera was easy to install and provides a good (not great) picture with significantly wide camera angle. The installation kit provides all you need to get the job done. The camera looks good when installed, with a small head that is barely noticeable above the license plate. The cable near the camera is small with a single small connector. This made it very easy to route from the mount position to the trunk, as opposed to some systems that use a bulky rca connector that is hard to route through small openings and grommets. Overall, very pleased with the product.

Pros: Single, mall connector that supplies both video and power feeds at camera end of cable makes for easy routing through tight spots. Kit provides all you need to install across many applications (multiple mounts, adhesive, adequate cable length, etc.) Good picture quality at modest price.

Cons: Video at night is a tad grainy.

Easy to install

Eric from Texas on 7/28/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This particular unit is my benchmark. For installation I appreciate how the camera has a few feet of wire then fitting that is slightly larger than the wire, which allows for easy feeding through drilled holes. The video is great with a wide angle.

Pros: Easy to install. Clear image. Wide angle.

Cons: None so far.

Crutchfield customer from Land O Lakes, FL on 1/18/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Easy to install, features to reverse the image and remove the guide lines. Plenty of cable length for an extended cab, short bed truck. Bracket is sturdy, can be fastened behind the license plate on this installation. Easy to adjust. The picture quality in light is adequate but reduced in low light. In low light the image is sufficient. The low light could minus a star but that information was known at purchase.

Pros: East to install, plenty of cable, clear instructions, sturdy bracket.

Cons: Image is degraded in low light.

The Brandmotion Back-Up camera arrived on time and as advertised. I had it professionally installed as I had neither the time, or inclination to undertake the project. I had my local radio shop do the installation, it took about 1 hour. As far as the camera, it works as advertised, I am very pleased with it and would recommend this camera without reservation. Thanks!

Good camera for the price. A little grainy at night but still a good picture. Plenty of wire. Has a clean look using the bracket it comes on placed behind the license plate. Can't even tell it's on a bracket. Doesn't look like a cheap aftermarket install. And Crutchfield was great with the couple of questions we had.

Gary from Bryan, OH on 12/15/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Works well. Easy to install. Plenty of cord length. Problem: The mounting structure is so flimsy that any bump with a brush or cleaning towel would break it off. The mounting hardware is something I would expect from a jewelry application or eyeglass repair kit. I am trying to figure a way to protect it from being damaged when cleaning my 2005 Silverado.

Pros: Works well.

Cons: Very flimsy.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Easy install and nice camera for the price. Little grainy at night about like a cell phone photo but I was expecting that. Perfect for backing up to trailers

Pros:

Cons:

Excellent inexpensive camera

Michael from San Diego, CA on 9/11/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This camera, for the price is excellent. Hidden behind the license plate, it looks like it belongs on the vehicle.

Pros: Great view in reverse, has the lines so you can gauge your distance to any object.

Cons: A little grainy in low light, but still usable

Cons:

Good not great

Armando P from Longmont , CO on 6/26/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

For the money this unit is good. It does exactly as advertised. A little grainy at night but the backup taillight of my car is enough for illumination. I wish the angle was a little wider. The colored guidelines are a real help but does take some practice.

Pros: Inexpensive, picture is OK, simple, colored back up guidelines and easy install.

Cons: A little grainy at night, back up lines are on all the time, even when you are just monitoring behind you while driving, colored guidelines take some practice.

Best camera

great camera!

Pros:

Cons:

Awesome, now add a beeper for distance :)

Mar H from Murrieta, CA on 4/13/2016

Was nice to have CRUTCHFIELDs install my camera, they did a great job. Drove cross country and it was a blessing in unfamiliar areas as a heads up of your surroundings, really makes a difference

Pros: Being able to see small and large objects behind a big truck is awesome, it would be even nicer if somehow a beeper could be installed for distance alert :)

Cons: Don't have any cons,, I love it

Brandmotion Back Up Camara 9002-7601

Steven from Kutztown, Pa. on 4/11/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Camara works very well. A little grainy at night but it might just be that way to pick up light at night . Lines are good on the camera for the backup lines. Plenty of wire to reach the head unit .

Pros: Easy install and worked perfect with my Pioneer HU .

Cons: None

Nice camera

Val from Haverstraw NY on 4/4/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

So far a good camera but wish it showed arrows of where the vehicle is going. Maybe I still need practice using it.

Pros:

Cons:

Easy to Install - Good so far!

DonM from Daytonn, OH on 3/13/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Overall a solid offering and worth the price paid. Install was not complicated from the perspective of the device - the complications came from my vehicle in finding the necessary "reverse" wire to both power the camera and also switch my head unit (Pioneer AVH-X3800BHS). It would be really nice if that information was something Crutchfield could provide! 90% of my time was tracing that back, confirming I had the right wire and then tapping into it. The wiring on the device was probably quite standard - but being that this is the first time I have installed one of these, I'll make some comments to that end: 1) The instructions were pretty good. 2) The wiring harness was well thought out - the ability to disconnect the camera from the "length" of the cable simplified getting it through a factory grommet on the tailgate. Well done! 3) It would have been really great if there was a way to shorten the wiring - they are generous with the cable to run back to the HU (which is a good thing), but I actually purchased a wireless device that precluded the need to run the wiring all the way back to the HU (best $10 I have spent b/c I was not looking forward to figuring out how to remove the side panels, etc. in my 2009 Sienna!). I ended up tie-wrapping the huge bundle of wires and then wrapping that in void space in my lift gate - so no harm/foul - but it just seems odd they would have thought of the connnector to make the 'pull through' and not

Pros: Good quality, straight forwad install, parking lines with distance indicators, works well with my Pioneer AVH-X3800BHS

Cons: No reasonable way to shorten the cable harness.

Hope the second time is the charm.

Jimmy from Spring, TX on 3/8/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Well let me start by saying the first camera that arrived did not work. No visible signs there would be any sort of issue, but I am now waiting on a replacement to solve this issue.

Pros: Packaged nicely

Cons: Did not work

Pros:

Cons:

Back up so so

did retire from Rockville Centre NY on 1/23/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Nice bright back up camera but not wide enough side view for a Chevrolet 150 pickup.

Pros: Great color in night and day.

Cons: I feel the range for right and left is shy for a pickup. Have to be very careful when close to side objects when backing up. I was comparing to other backup cameras in my wife and daughter car.

Fast and easy to install, works great.

RobertS from North Carolina on 1/5/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Fast and easy to install, works great. I recommend this to anyone how looking for a great rear-view camera.

Pros:

Cons:

Universal rear-view camera

TomeH from Alabama on 12/26/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Installed the Brandmotion 9002-7601in a older pickup and it works great. Really going to enjoy this. The installation of the wiring took a little time but well worth the effort.

Pros: Excellent image in both day light and night time

Cons: Installation instructions a little vague in a couple of areas

Excellent Rearview Camera

LazyBoy Cruiser from Maryland on 11/29/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought it for my 2009 Chevy Colorado with camper shell. I bought this and a Pioneer DVD player. The camera was easy to install because I bought and used an aftermarket connection harness to keep my OEM Star capabilities (recommended by Crutchfield on website). Camera is also easy to adjust, and the video is great. On sunny days and depending on the angle you're parked at, there will be a bright spot (sun) on the video display. But I was still able to see around the rear of my truck. Depending on the location of the rearview camera and if you have LED license plate bulbs and LED reverse light bulbs, there might be a possibility of a slight white glaze on the video display at night. But I can still see the area in the back so I don't mind it. During the day, it is perfect. The distance hash marks on the rearview camera work perfectly for me. So far in medium rainfall, the camera got wet but the picture was still clear. If I come across other issues in the future, I will update my review. Wish I could upload the pictures I took of the display so a possible buyer can see the clarity of the video/display.

Pros: Crystal clear video (I also replaced my OEM radio with a Pioneer DVD player), easy to install and adjust.

Cons: Can't think of any. But if I do come across one in the future, I'll update my review.

Good camera

Great easy to install camera. The angle is weird because I installed it in my daughters Sedan, but otherwise great camera with great video.

Pros: Easy to install

Cons: None

Works Great

Mike from Missouri on 9/21/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Nice clear picture with distance lines. Nice and easy to install and is barley noticeable on my truck.

Pros: Good picture, low profile.

Cons: None

Backup camera

Nik from Virginia on 8/27/2015

A nice clear image. The image is a little too bright in full sunlight. I have not tested it at night. Objects are much closer than they appear, so for backup assist only. Crutchfield did a great job installing on my truck and camper trailer.

Pros: Nice clear wide image. Small and unobtrusive.

Cons: A bit bright when in full sunlight.

Good back up camera

TomTerrill from Virginia on 8/14/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The camera sends a clear picture to the monitor. Installation by Crutchfield was top notch.

Pros: Clear video.

Cons: None that I'm aware of.

Pretty good product

Dexter from Georgia on 6/16/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It's a nice camera. I didn't have much trouble installing it and the picture quality is good.

Pros: Easy to use. Picture quality is good.

Cons: Don't care for things sticking out on my truck. Not a good design for flush mounting.

Features

Universal Camera Kit: The BrandMotion Universal Camera Kit (9002-7601) allows you to add a rearview camera to almost any vehicle with an aftermarket head unit that features a video monitor and composite video rear-view camera input. The camera kit includes a rearview camera, license plate and surface mounting brackets, plus wiring harness.

Note: This rear-view camera kit is meant as a back-up aid only; never solely rely on the rear-view camera when backing-up. In addition to using the rear-view camera, always look behind you to make sure everything is clear when backing up your vehicle.

CMOS Backup Camera: The BrandMotion Universal Camera Kit features a CMOS backup camera that delivers 648 x 488 lines of resolution with a 170° wide viewing angle. The CMOS camera has a low-light lux rating of 0.5 for driving at night.

Mirror or Reverse Image: The backup camera will display a "Mirror" or "Reverse" image on your aftermarket monitor. By default, the camera will display a mirror image. In order to display a reverse image, you will need to cut the white wire (labeled "Mirror option) in the camera's harness.

Park Assist Lines: The backup camera provides parking assist lines on the screen of your aftermarket display monitor. These parking lines are there to assist you when backing up into a parking space. There are two vertical lines which help you judge the left and right edges of the parking space and your vehicle. There are also 4 color-coded horizontal lines that are used to distinguish how close you are getting to the end of the parking spot - Green (Clear), Orange (Getting Close), Yellow (Very Close), and Red (Stop).

Note: You can remove the Park Assist Lines by cutting the green wire (labeled "Parking Line") in the camera's harness.

Mounting Options: The backup camera can be installed behind the license plate or on a flat vehicle surface with minimal surface area requirements, using the included brackets.

My car is a 2004 Tahoe, don't laugh! I suppose with some minor detail work there might be a way to mount the camera such that the lens is flush with the license plate. It would probably require some minor metal work but that was not worth the effort to me. Mine is as shown in the photo and has caused no problems. Good luck! [ Patrick  Oct 12, 2018 ]

Thanks for your question. This is not marketed or listed for a rear view mirror so there is not one included. This is just an add on that would connect to your existing video receiver/display.

Hi John. I have installed this on my vehicle. The picture quality is very good. It is about 3/4 inch square and the depth is about 1 to 1 1/4 inches deep (I can't measure exactly as the car is up on a lift). To get better clearance after my initial installation I notched my metal license plate to enable the pivoting camera head to bend lower to the ground. I have a low vehicle (Corvette). Good luck with your install! [ PATRICIA  Aug 10, 2016 ]
Its approximately 1" square. [ Alan  Aug 10, 2016 ]
The camera head is about 3/4 inches square and extends behind the tag frame about one inch. But gives a great picture, even at night. [ BRYAN L  Aug 10, 2016 ]
The camera head is about 3/4" wide, 3/4" deep, and less than an inch high. It might be easier to see if I could upload a picture that I took with a ruler alongside the camera head. But, I hope the measurements help. [ Richard  Aug 10, 2016 ]
It's less than the size of a quarter but bigger than a nickle the camera head itself. Plus it can be adjusted/angled downwards. [ VERN  Aug 10, 2016 ]
I put the black bar behind my plate and the gooseneck comes up and over for a sleeker look... I installed it on my Porsche 911 turbo. I will say that the picture quality in the dark isn't the best. It works fine but it's grainier than I would like. [ Stephen  Jul 16, 2016 ]
The camera adjust left and right. It sticks out on my plate, which I don't care for. During the storm, it was repositioned on its own. My cousin had to adjust it for me because I personally do not know how to install or even adjust these techy devices. Hope this helps. [ SIMONE  Feb 18, 2016 ]
NO the camera is fixed on the bracket, it can only move up and down. [ DAVID J  Feb 18, 2016 ]
Hmmm not really. It does have some up/down tolerance... [ Stephen  Feb 18, 2016 ]
It's centered on the bracket. But you can install it without the bracket, it comes with another attachment device. [ Juann  Feb 17, 2016 ]
I placed the bracket behind the license plate and the camera hangs just above the plate. Mine is on a pick up truck and you didn't state what your vehicle is. For all the more space the bracket takes up placed as I did mine, I don't see how it would interfere with your latch. [ Earl  Feb 17, 2016 ]
