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

Rear-View Camera: The Crux CUL-06 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. Now you'll be able 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-06 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-06 rear-view camera features a CCD image sensor that offers 480 lines of resolution. It has 170° (horizontal) x 90° (vertical) viewing angle. The CCD image sensor has a low-light lux rating of 0.4.

Waterproof Housing: The Crux CUL-06 rear-view camera features a IP67 waterproof housing.

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 the camera's two white wires together.

Mounting Options: The Crux rear-view camera features two integrated mounting holes with two screws included. The camera needs to be mounted from underneath the mounting surface with the screw-holes facing up, otherwise image from the camera will not be right side up

Power & Signal Connections: The rear-view camera features an attached 23.75' composite video cable and 7' power/ground wires. The composite video cable plugs into your in-dash aftermarket multimedia or navigation receiver's composite video camera input. 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.

Customer Q&A

3 questions already asked

Q
What are the dimensions? Can I use a double backed adhesive tape? Where does the wire exit?
[ Keith W  Oct 15, 2020 ]
1 answer
A
The wire exits on the base of the camera unit so the hole you drill is covered by the mounted camera base. I used two small included screws to install it, but a good weatherproof adhesive should work as well. If the tape failed the cable would keep it from falling completely off, so you could affix it again.

Q
I have an NX604 Clarion and would like to add a backup camera. Would this work or are they brand compatible only? I'd be installing it on a subaru forester 2009.

As long as you have a video input on your stereo it should work
[ jarad  May 18, 2017 ]

I don't have mine installed yet, but this camera outputs standard video to an RCA connector. The extension cable for the camera has power and ground at the camera end, and a power lead at the RCA end. Just use the one that's easiest to use.
[ Mikey  May 18, 2017 ]

It doesn't need to be brand specific, it's just a video input. As long as you have a video input on your deck for a back up camera then you can run this camera.
[ David  May 17, 2017 ]

Back up Camera's are generic and any brand should work. Easy install, I got power for camera from back-up bulb in tail light. Camera works well with theClarion NX604. I put mine in a 2007 Grand Cherokee I had. Hope this helps. Kent Des Moines, IA
