More details on the Crux CVL-02
Volvo Rear-View Camera: The Crux CVL-02 Volvo rear-view camera is specifically designed for select Volvo S60 and S80 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 CVL-02 replaces the light assembly above your rear-mounted license plate. With the Crux CVL-02 Volvo rear-view camera installed, you'll be able to view what's behind you on your in-dash aftermarket receiver's video monitor when you put your vehicle in reverse.
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 CVL-02 Volvo rear-view camera features a CCD image sensor that offers 480 lines of resolution. The bright f/1.8 lens has 170° (horizontal) x 90° (vertical) viewing angle. The minimum illumination is 0.2 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 connect the two small, thin white wires on the the attached power/video cable of the rear-view camera.
Connections: The rear-view camera features an attached 4' power/video 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. In addition, there are separate power and ground wires attached to rear-view camera that will need to be hardwired into your vehicle's license-plate lighting circuit.
Waterproof Housing: The Crux CVL-02 Volvo rear-view camera features an IP67-IP68 waterproof housing.
