About the Crux CUL-03
Get a streamlined look
Crux's CUL-03 backup camera will mount nicely on cars with a lip-style overhang built into the rear. Crux supplies a mount for the camera for a streamlined, flush look and a 21-foot cable to connect the camera to your receiver. Once installed, you'll gain a full color 170° view of what's behind you. You also get the option of parking lines and reverse image capability for easier reversing into tight spaces. And the Crux CUL-03 is a match for any car stereo with a standard composite video input and viewing screen.
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. It is not intended as a replacement for your mirrors.

Rear-View Camera: The Crux CUL-03 rear-view camera can be installed in a variety of 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 camera allows you to view what's behind you on your in-dash receiver's video monitor when you put your vehicle in reverse.
Note: The Crux CUL-03 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.
CCD Image Sensor: The Crux CUL-03 rear-view camera features a CCD image sensor that offers 480 lines of resolution.
Lens: The bright f/1.2 lens has 170° (horizontal) x 90° (vertical) viewing angle. The minimum illumination is 0.4 Lux.
Waterproof Housing: The Crux CUL-03 rear-view camera features a IP67 waterproof housing.
Normal or Mirror Image: The Crux CUL-03 rear-view camera provides either a mirror or normal image. By default, the camera will display a mirror image. To get a reverse image, you should connect together the two exposed blue wires on the extension cable.
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: You can remove the Park Assist Lines by connecting together the two exposed white wires on the extension cable.
Installation: You will need to drill a 7/8" (22.5mm) hole in your vehicle's rear exterior panel. The rear-view camera mounts in this opening and features a threaded mounting collar which holds the camera in place. A self-adhesive gasket is included for sealing the hole around the camera.
Note: The camera should be mounted from underneath the mounting surface with the threaded collar facing up, otherwise image from the camera will not be right side up.
Power & Signal Connections: The rear-view camera features an attached 31" power/signal cable and a 20'-4" extension cable. At the end of the extension cable is a male RCA composite video plug, which connects to the composite, rear-view camera input of your head unit. The power (red) & ground (black) 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.
