About the Voxx ACA501D

Active parking lines

Need a little extra help backing up? Voxx's ACA501D backup camera provides an impressive wide-angle view with active parking lines that predict your trajectory in reverse. For such a tiny addition to your vehicle, this lip-mount camera can make a big difference in how you drive.

Active parking lines

Need a little extra help backing up? Voxx's ACA501D backup camera provides an impressive wide-angle view with active parking lines that predict your trajectory in reverse. For such a tiny addition to your vehicle, this lip-mount camera can make a big difference in how you drive.

Really wide view

Once you power the ACA501D and run the included video cable to the screen up front in your dash, this high-performance camera delivers a panoramic 180-degree view enhanced with selectable parking lines for precision parking. And there's no need to be afraid of backing up in a parking garage or at night — the ACA501D will give you a crisp picture, even in extremely low light. Its waterproof lip-mount body lets you maintain a more factory look.

Or use it for a front view

You can reverse the image on this camera in case you want to mount it on the front of your vehicle and keep an eye on high curbs or other scuff-makers.

Installing this camera yourself? Here's what you should know.

What does it do? Unless otherwise noted, a backup camera is only intended for use backing up your vehicle. (If you require a front-view or constant rear-view camera, check for that capability.)

What tools and supplies will I need? A panel tool, a wire cutter/stripper, a soldering iron, and a rosin-core solder with heat shrink tubing are recommended, along with whatever tools are needed to remove the radio from the dash.  

How much wiring is required? Wiring instructions vary from camera to camera. Some cameras have power wiring that can only be connected near the radio. Others let you power the camera at compatible reverse lights. In all cases, the camera must be wired for power and ground, the camera's video output must be connected to the radio/monitor, and the radio/monitor must be connected to a reverse trigger in your vehicle. Some radio replacement interfaces supply a reverse trigger wire for the radio -- using that wire to power your camera will damage the interface.

Will the included video cable be long enough? You'll need to route the camera's video cable from its mounting location outside your vehicle into your vehicle's cabin and all the way to the screen in the dash. This often requires drilling a small hole in your vehicle or filing some metal and or plastic. You'll also need to estimate the length of cable needed to run from the camera to the dash, which will not be a straight shot. Each camera's cable length is listed.

Product Research


Backup Camera: The Voxx ACA501D backup camera features a high-performance 1089 HD CCD image sensor that results in a cleaner, higher-quality image. It also features a 180° wide-angle lens that offers great visibility behind your vehicle. In addition, it has a light sensitivity of 0.1 Lux so only the smallest amount of light is needed to produce an image of useable quality.

  • Mirrored or Normal Mode: The Voxx ACA501D can be used as a backup camera with a mirror image or front camera with a normal image. By default the ACA501D is setup as a backup camera. To use it as a front camera, cut the thin white wire loop on the cable that is attached to the camera.
  • Park Assist Lines: When configured as a backup camera Voxx ACA501D will display park assist lines on your connected monitor to aid you in backing up into a parking spot. By default, the ACA501D is setup with the park assist lines activated. To deactivate the park assist line, cut the thin blue wire loop on the cable that is attached to the camera.

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

Composite Video Output: The Voxx ACA501D backup camera is outfitted with a composite video connector (RCA) which makes it compatible with virtually any in-dash receiver with integrated video monitor and a composite video camera input. The included 19' video extension cable contains a red reverse trigger wire that runs the length of it internally with 5" of bare-ended wire protruding from both ends. This allows a connected reverse signal to be passed from the rear of the vehicle to the front or vice-versa.

Waterproof (IP68): The Voxx ACA501D features a waterproof (IP68) housing to protect it from the elements. It's totally protected against dust and protected against the effect of immersion between 15cm and 1m for the duration of 30 minutes.

Mounting Options: You will need to drill a 5/8" (17mm) hole in your vehicle's rear or front exterior panel above the license-plate. The rear-view camera mounts in this opening and features an integrated spring-loaded mounting bracket which secures the camera in place. It also comes with an adhesive backing to help hold and seal the camera to the opening as well. The camera should be mounted from underneath the mounting surface, otherwise the image from the camera will not be right side up.

Note: The ACA501D requires approximately 0.875" of mounting depth, including cable.

Power & Ground Wires: The Voxx ACA501D features 38" accessory power (red) and ground wires (black) that will need to be hardwired to the vehicle. Wire the camera's accessory power wire to your vehicle's reverse lamp and attach the ground wire to your vehicle's metal chassis.

Note: Some vehicles with LED style tail lights will require the camera be connected to an accessory power source, as the tail light circuit is not designed to power other devices.

What are the dimensions of the camera? Or another way to ask, how deep must the lip be to mount this camera? I have ~2.25" and want to make sure this will fit prior to ordering.

Its quite small. Less than an inch in the longer part. I put it under the license plate light on a Ford Explorer. It looks like it came with the car. Camera works very well. The only item I would add would be a little more vertical view angle. I can view the bumper, but not too far into the street.
[ Francisco Daffr  Oct 20, 2020 ]
I This is much smaller than it appears. Front to back the camera is just over an inch. A half inch inserts into the hole for the camera. If you provide another 1/2 inch for the wire coming out of the back of the camera, you only need an inch of clearance behind the surface you will mount the camera to.
[ F  Oct 15, 2020 ]
That is plenty of space. You only need about 1 inch. Great camera. You'll love it.
[ Nick  Oct 15, 2020 ]
can I use this to replace my existing backup camera on my jlu wrangler?

This camera cannot work with the stock radio in your Jeep, but I have some that can. I recommend contacting an advisor on 1-800-324-9695 to check the current options and locations that we can place cameras to work with the stock radio.
