"Why do I need a camera to back up when I have mirrors?" Yep, I was one of those guys, but now I'm a total backup camera convert. For such a tiny addition to my vehicle, it can make a big difference in how I drive. No parking spot is too challenging. And Audiovox's ACA800 backup cam delivers everything you need to be a parking pro too.

The big view

This compact camera delivers a wide 170-degree horizontal view enhanced with parking lines so you know exactly how much wiggle room you have behind you. And don't be afraid of backing up in a parking garage or at night, as the ACA800 is enhanced to give you a crisp picture, even in low light. It can be surface-mounted or license plate-mounted.

Or use it for a front view

Audiovox gives you a mirrored mode in case you want to mount this on the front of your vehicle and keep an eye on high curbs or other scuff-makers. Wherever you mount the camera, you'll just run the included video cable from the camera to the monitor in your dash, connect the power cables, and you're in business.

Product Research


Backup Camera: The VOXX ACA800 backup camera features a high-performance HD CCD image sensor with a minimum illumination of 0.1 Lux for excellent visibility in bright or lowlight. Its wide-angle lens provides a 170° horizontal viewing angle that offers great visibility.

  • Mirrored or Normal Mode: The ACA800 can be used as a backup camera with a mirror image or front camera with a normal image. By default the ACA800 is setup as a backup camera. To use it as a front camera, cut the thin blue wire loop on the cable that is attached to the camera.
  • Park Assist Lines: The ACA800 will display park assist lines on your connected monitor to aid you in backing up into a parking spot. By default the ACA800 is setup with park assist lines turned on. To turn off the park assist lines, cut the thin green 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 ACA800 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 total length of the camera's video cable is 22'.

Waterproof (IP68): The VOXX ACA800 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: The VOXX ACA800 backup camera includes a license plate bracket which mounts behind your vehicle's license plate frame. A surface-mount bracket is included, if you cannot use the license plate mounting bracket. Mounting hardware is included for the installation of either bracket. Both brackets allow you to adjust the up and down angle of the camera.

Note: The license plate bracket is designed to work best on vehicles that have a license plate located at the center and above the bumper. If your vehicle has a plate location that is offset to the left side, right side, or your plate is located under the bumper, then the surface-mount bracket is the better choice.

Power & Ground Wires: The VOXX ACA800 features a 7' accessory power wire (red) and a 7' ground wire (black); the 22' composite video cable aslo provides an accessory power wire. The power & ground wires will need to be hardwired. Power can be obtained from your vehicle's reverse light circuit or from the +12V accessory wire of your aftermarket stereo (if applicable). The ground will need to be connected 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.

8 questions already asked

Is this anti fog camera?
[ Norman  Apr 30, 2020 ]
1 answer
I have this camera installed on my 2008 gmc Sierra and i have never had an issue with it fogging up. Only issue is if you dont wipe the lens off you obviously will only be able to see certain things
[ MATTHEW  Apr 30, 2020 ]
I want to install a camera on a 2012 Chevy HD 2500 to use mostly to assist in backing to hitch to a trailer. Will it be useful for this and what is a good option for a monitor if neither GPS nor audio upgrade is desired?
[ David  Apr 20, 2020 ]
1 answer
I have it mounted above my license plate on an 06 Dodge. Great view of my hitch close up. The higher you can mount it the better the view for depth perception but the license mount still works well for hitching up. I upgraded my audio and thus use that for my monitor So I am no help there. The wiring was just barely long enough to reach with a long bed crew cab so don't get to playful with your routing if youre truck is a yacht
[ IAN  Apr 21, 2020 ]
Anyone know if this camera will work with a Kenwood DDX375BT?
[ Roger  Mar 25, 2020 ]
1 answer
It absolutely will work! You will need a few wire taps for power, ground, and reverse triggers, but every camera will require that!
[ Calvin  Apr 15, 2020 ]  Staff
with this camera, I just bought the Sony head unit XAV-AX1000. Does it just plug the camera to the back of the head unit, or does it still need to tap into the reverse lights? This is for a 2013 GMC Sierra
[ Dennis  Mar 15, 2020 ]
1 answer
Camara does plug into back of head unit at the camera input. My head unit allowed to turn the camera on when desired by pressing button on the unit or to automatically come on when in reverse. I chose to have it come on only when in reverse which did require tapping into one of the reverse light wires. This is easy to do. Turning on manually from head unit does not require tapping into wire. The only time consuming part is just running and securing the camera wire from back of vehicle to the front.
[ Ray  Mar 15, 2020 ]
How well does this gauge the width of a given vehicle? For example I drive an 08 suburban which is pretty wide and when installed on the back center, does the camera calibrate for the width of the vehicle so it can accurately guide into tight spaces based on the driving lines and such?

I have this on a 2012 Subaru Legacy. I does have lines in display and you may be able to turn these off. I think this would work fine when used in conjunction with side & rear view mirrors.
[ Thomas  Feb 21, 2020 ]
Its centered when it's on the center of the tag.. the view and everything is a little better than the factory backup camera that's on my 2013 suburban..
[ Dale  Feb 21, 2020 ]
I mounted this with my '04 Silverado rear license plate and can't see the sides of the truck. What it is helpful for is to see things and to determine how close you are to an object directly behind and less than 180 degrees (like 130 degrees) from the rear bumper. You can't see the sides of the vehicle unless you add cameras on the sides. If your stereo has the 360 degree capability you can add more cameras to see the sides.
[ Chad  Feb 21, 2020 ]
I installed this camera on my daughter's 2009 Toyota Sienna and it works just fine for her. The width of that vehicle is more than adequately covered in the view of that camera and allows for a clear view while backing.
[ ROBERT  Feb 20, 2020 ]
It's a static width. The grid fits just inside the lines of a normal sized parking spot so you are still going to have to utilize your side mirrors when backing into tight spaces.
[ KRISTOPHER  Feb 20, 2020 ]
I drive a Ford Ranger which is smaller, but it works fine for me in backing up. I don't think the camera view is adjustable but the colored lines on the screen are. I parked on level ground and set some boards on the ground behind me at a certain measurement and adjusted my colored lines accordingly
[ Robert  Feb 20, 2020 ]
How do you install it with the Sony Xav 1000?
[ MASON  Jan 22, 2020 ]
1 answer
The only connection to the radio is an RCA connector to the camera input. The other 2 connections for camera power can be made at the tail light.
[ Adam  Jan 22, 2020 ]
Can i install a backup camera on a manual 6 speed?
[ Jrobin  Sep 29, 2019 ]
1 answer
Thank you for your question! You can install a backup camera on a manual vehicle. The backup camera will require a connection to your vehicles reverse light, which will signal the camera to turn on when in reverse. If you would like to go over your options, and be sure you have all you'll need for your installation, please chat with an Advisor online or by phone at 1-800-324-9695. They will be more than happy to help you out!
