About the Crux CBM-01T

Back up your Beamer

If you're looking for a backup camera for the aftermarket touchscreen radio or monitor in your BMW, check out the Crux CBM-01T package first. This camera fits in your vehicle's factory trunk handle location. Crux includes a 20-foot cable that connects to the composite video input on the back of your aftermarket radio. Once installed, you'll see a 170-degree wide view of what's behind you on your radio's video display or monitor like those built into select replacement rear-view mirrors with a composite video input.

Back up your Beamer

If you're looking for a backup camera for the aftermarket touchscreen radio or monitor in your BMW, check out the Crux CBM-01T package first.

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.

Features

BMW Trunk Handle Replacement Camera: The Crux CBM-01T BMW rear-view camera is specifically designed for select BMW vehicles with an aftermarket in-dash multimedia or navigation receiver installed. Your aftermarket receiver must feature an integrated video monitor and a composite video camera input. The CBM-01T rear-view camera replaces your vehicle's factory trunk handle assembly.

Note: This rear-view camera 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.

Image Sensor & Lens: The Crux CBM-01T BMW rear-view camera features a CCD image sensor that offers 480 lines of resolution (NTSC or PAL compatible). The bright f/1.2 lens has 170° (horizontal) x 90° (vertical) viewing angle. The minimum illumination is 0.4 Lux.

Park Assist Lines: The rear-view camera provides parking assist lines on the screen of your vehicle's in-dash aftermarket 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 3 color-coded horizontal lines that are used to distinguish how close you are getting to the end of the parking spot - Green (Clear), Yellow (Getting Close), Red (Very Close).

Note: The park assist lines are turned on and active by default. If you prefer to turn off the park assist lines, you will need to cut the white wire loop on the the attached power/signal cable of the rear-view camera.

Connections: The rear-view camera features an attached 4' power/signal cable which plugs into the included 20' video cable which also features attached 3' power/ground wires. At the end of the video cable is a male RCA composite video plug, which connects to the composite, rear-view camera input of your aftermarket head unit. The power (red) & ground (black) wires will need to be hardwired. 12V power can be obtained from your vehicle's reverse light circuit or from the reverse gear wire of your aftermarket stereo (if applicable). The ground will need to connected to your vehicle's metal chassis.

Waterproof Housing: The Crux CBM-01T BMW trunk handle replacement camera features an IP67 waterproof housing.

Q
Does this retain the original switch function for a power lift gate on a 2013 BMW X3 F25?

You will want to contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat to discuss compatibility with your factory system. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and see if this will integrate. If it does not, then they will also be able to discuss other options with you.

Q
Do I need an extra component for installing this backup camera? My 2016 X1 with tech package didn't come with backup camera.

Hi Seong, thank you for your question. Since the 2016 BMW X1 has a head unit that can not be changed, you will need to use the CS-BMW6 in order to allow the Crux CBM-01T, to interface with your stock stereo. https://www.crutchfield.com/p_249CSBMW6/Crux-CS-BMW6.html. Chat with an Advisor online or by phone at 1-800-324-9695.
