About the Alpine HCE-TG130GM
The all-seeing ride
The all-seeing ride
If you're a GM truck owner and if you've already upgraded your dash with an Alpine receiver (see compatible models below), then you have all the right pieces in play to incorporate the HCE-TG130GM backup camera into your system. You'll hardly know it's there, until you need it.
This versatile rear-view camera provides four viewing modes:
- standard rear view for parking and navigating tight spaces in reverse;
- ground view, ideal for connecting to a tow hitch;
- corner view for spotting approaching vehicles when backing out of a busy lot or around a corner;
- panoramic view when you need an expansive picture of all the action behind you.
On a large touchscreen display, that's a serious advantage from the driver's seat.
Alpine puts the priority on subtlety by allowing you to replace your tailgate handle surround bezel with this rear-view camera system that bolts in. The result is an integrated camera that looks as natural to the GM build as if it came off the factory line that way. The tailgate lock included in the replacement handle surround bezel can be coded for use with your ignition key, and the bezel's built in LED light handles low-light scenarios for backing up at night.
Important Notes: Alpine's HCE-TG130GM back-up camera system is only compatible with Alpine's X009-GM, and X009-GM2 navigation receivers. If your truck does not have a factory tailgate lock, this rear-view camera will not add that feature.
