Brandmotion has made a sensible back-up solution for some of the most popular cars on the road today. If your vehicle features a wedge-style rear-view mirror mount, or fits a Brandmotion adapter (see Accessories), and a lip above your rear license plate area, then this may be the system for you. Brandmotion's camera mount has a streamlined factory look, and the high-quality, full-color camera with a Panasonic CMOS image sensor gives you a wide-angle 150-degree view and excellent night-time vision.
If you don't have a video-capable in-dash receiver or you just like the idea of looking where you've always looked when you shift into reverse, then you'll appreciate Brandmotion's rear-view mirror display. When reversing, you'll see an impressive 3-1/2" view of what's behind you, inlaid in the larger mirror. It disappears when not in use, giving you a fully functional, sleek rear-view mirror. If your vehicle does not feature a wedge-style mirror mount, you may be able to use an adapter to incorporate the Brandmotion mirror.
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.

Rear-View Mirror/Monitor & Backup Camera Kit: The Brandmotion CRFD-8744 rear-view mirror/monitor & camera system allows you to add a backup aid to your older or newer vehicle. The Brandmotion CRFD-8744 includes a rear-view mirror/monitor and backup camera, along with all the necessary wiring harnesses and mounting hardware.
Note: This rear-view mirror/monitor & camera system is meant as a backup 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.
Vehicle Compatibility: The Brandmotion CRFD-8744 rear-view mirror & camera kit is designed for use in many Honda, Toyota, Hyundai, Ford, Nissan, and Chrysler vehicles. Your Honda, Toyota, Hyundai, Ford, Nissan, and Chrysler vehicle must have a mirror wedge-style mount to install the rear-view mirror/monitor and a lip above the license plate area on the rear of the vehicle for mounting the backup camera.
Rear-View Mirror/Monitor: The included rear-view mirror/monitor replaces your vehicle's factory rear-view mirror. This rear-view mirror/monitor features an embedded 3.5" LCD screen on the left-side that provides you with a view from the included backup camera. When you put your vehicle into reverse, the display will automatically turn on. When not in reverse, the screen completely disappears letting you utilize the entire mirror portion. A ball-&-socket mechanism allows you to adjust the angle of the mirror/monitor for better visibility.
Backup Camera: The backup camera installs on the rear exterior of your vehicle and displays what's behind the vehicle on the included rear-view mirror/monitor. The camera features a 1/4" Panasonic CMOS image sensor with electronic auto iris and automatic white balance for a full-color image. The camera also features a waterproof housing and an anti-fog lens. The 150°H x 100°V wide-angle lens provides excellent depth of field, while its 3 Lux rating provides a sharp image even in low light. Overall, this camera provides superior contrast, depth of field, and a wide field of view with minimal fish-eye effect.
Mounting Options: The rear-view mirror/monitor replaces your vehicle's factory rear-view mirror and simply mounts to the same existing wedge-shape bracket on the windshield. The backup camera installs on the rear exterior of your vehicle using a newly designed lip-bracket that enables simpler installation. It is recommended to mount the camera at least 24" from the ground and as close to the centerline of the vehicle as possible. The minimum mounting surface required is 2.125" (w) x 1.25" (d). The distance between the two mounting holes is 1.5".
Wiring Harnesses: Two wiring harness are included. A 26' harness plugs in at the backup camera, while a 6' harness plugs in at the rear-view mirror/monitor. The two harnesses then plug together. In addition to the harnesses' plug-in molex connectors, there are six wires which need to hardwired to your vehicle's wiring. There are two red power wires, two black ground wires, and two green reverse wires (one each for the mirror/monitor and the camera). The two red power wires need to be hardwired to +12V switched power in the vehicle, while the two black ground wires can be simply grounded to the vehicle's chassis, and the two green reverse wires should be wired to your vehicle's reverse-lamp circuit.
Dimensions: Dimensions for the rear-view mirror/monitor and backup camera.
