About the Crux CUL-09

Look back with confidence

Crux's CUL-09 rear-view 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 23-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 parking lines for easier reversing into tight spaces. And the Crux CUL-09 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.

Features

Rear-View Camera: The Crux CUL-09 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-09 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-09 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-09 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/ground wires will need to hardwired to power and ground of your vehicle.

Q
What does "lip mount" MEAN?!! I can't find ANY descriptions, instructions or references to the meaning of "lip mount" of this camera.
[ Greg  Jul 16, 2019 ]

A
it means that you can mount it above your licence plate if you have an overhang above it. The "lip" refers to the overhang. It screws upward into whatever is above the license plate that overhangs. It is common to have the plate illumination in this overhang.
[ Randal  Jul 22, 2019 ]
A
Lip mount in this context refers to mounting the camera on the underside of something, i.e. under a rear spoiler, a license plate cut out, or even under a bumper.
