Features

Front or Backup Camera: The Boyo VTL17IRTJ can be used as a backup camera with a mirror image or front camera with a normal image. To use as a front camera, you'll need to cut the white wire loop labeled "mirror image/non-mirror switch".

Note: The Boyo VTL17IRTJ is meant as a driving aid only; never solely rely on the camera. In addition to using the camera, always look around you to make sure everything is clear.

CMOS Image Sensor w/ Built-in IR(s): The Boyo VTL17IRTJ backup camera is equipped with a CMOS image sensor with a 720 (h) x 480 (h) resolution for high quality video. Integrated IR(s) on either side of the camera provide excellent visibility at night.

Wide Viewing Angle + Angle Adjustment: The VTL17IRTJ backup camera offers a 170° wide viewing angle, so you can see more of what's behind you. You can also physically angle the camera's mounting bracket up or down (between 30°-40°) for the best view behind your vehicle.

Dynamic Park Assist Lines: The Boyo VTL17IRTJ will display park assist lines on your connected monitor to aid you in backing up into a parking spot. A built-in gyro-sensor allows the park assist lines to dynamically curve as you steer and angle your vehicle.

Note: The dynamic park assist lines can be turned on or off. To disable the dynamic park assist lines, you must cut the blue wire loop labeled "parking lines on/off".

Waterproof (IP67): The Boyo VTL17IRTJ features a waterproof (IP67) housing to protect it from the elements. It's totally protected against dust and protected against the effect of immersion between 15cm and 1m for the duration of 30 minutes.

Composite Video Output: The Boyo VTL17IRTJ backup camera if fitted with a composite video connector (RCA) which makes it compatible with virtually any in-dash receiver with integrated video monitor and a composite video camera input. The total length of the camera's video cable is 25', while the total length of the power/ground cable is 9'.

Mounting Options: The Boyo VTL17IRTJ backup camera features an integrated license plate bracket which mounts behind your vehicle's license plate frame (mounting hardware is included). A surface-mount bracket is also included, if prefer to not use the license plate mounting bracket.

Notes:
  • The Boyo VTL17IRTJ is designed to work best on vehicles that have a license plate located at the center and above the bumper. If your vehicle has a plate location that is offset to the left side, right side or your plate is located under the bumper then the VTL17IRTJ may not provide optimum performance.
  • The backup camera must be mounted at a 30° to 40° angle for proper sensitivity, accuracy, and performance. It should not be mounted horizontally or vertically straight.

A
Good price and had great reviews [ Andrew  Dec 12, 2017 ]
A
I bought the VTL17LTJ and am very pleased with its clarity even at night. I plan on putting it in the truck as a front camera and will place this one, the IR, infrared, on the back. I swapped my rear view mirror with the BOYO VTW73M. It has a 7" wide screen as opposed to the 3INCH of some others. To me it better than a on the dash version because you're eyes are up and can see better using side mirrors as well instead of eyes down on the dash. Very pleased with this product.

8 questions already asked

Q
Can the Boyo VTL17IRTJ's guidelines be turned off (via software or cord-cutting)?
[ James  Oct 12, 2018 ]
5 answers
A
Yes. There is a jumper that can be cut to turn off guide lines.
[ Shelby  Oct 16, 2018 ]
A
I can no longer find my instructions but I seem to remember it being a jumper or wire connection that turned them on and off.
[ Roger  Oct 16, 2018 ]
A
I don't have an answer for this. I use mine every time.
[ Louise  Oct 16, 2018 ]
A
You can cut a wire to turn the lines off.
[ James  Oct 16, 2018 ]
A
Yes cord cutting turns them off. I did it on mine
[ Tyler  Oct 16, 2018 ]
Q
Does it have to be centered? I drive a rav4 which has it's license plate off center.
[ Andy  Aug 05, 2018 ]
2 answers
A
The camera tilts up and down but not side to side. If you install it off center you'll get the view directly in front of the camera. You can turn off the parking guide lines by cutting the corresponding looped wire. The camera does have a fairly wide view.
[ Paula  Aug 08, 2018 ]
A
No. I installed mine on an FJ Cruiser, which similarly has the license plate off center (to the passenger side). It makes no real difference, the field of view is quite wide.
[ Lewis  Aug 08, 2018 ]
Q
Is there anyway to increase the accuracy of the active parking lines on the BOYO Vision Backup Camera VTL17IRTJ?
[ Ashton  Jul 27, 2018 ]
2 answers
A
I didn't find a way to improve accuracy. Tried adjusting angle but never got the transitions I was hoping for. I ended up just using the static parking lines in my head unit.
[ Shelby  Jul 27, 2018 ]
A
I have noticed that the lines get a little better over time but they are still not good. I pull a trailer about half the time and that seems to really confuse whatever program is controlling the accuracy. The lines are active but not very accurate. A gimmick in my opinion.
[ James  Jul 27, 2018 ]
Q
Does this model work on a jeep wrangler? Is the spare tire an obstruction?
[ teebone  Jun 09, 2018 ]
1 answer
A
Its universal and straight up attaches to the license plate, so if that's not obstructed, it won't be... works really well and has a yellow RGB cable connect
[ Daniel  Jun 09, 2018 ]
Q
is the bracket removable if I wanted to mount it elsewhere?
[ Jeff  Nov 08, 2017 ]
3 answers
A
Yes it is. Just two small screws hold it to the bracket. There is also a small bracket with a self-adhesive tape on it that you can use instead of the license plate bracket. It's notched so you can easily mount using machine screws if you'd prefer. Fairly versatile.
[ Timothy  Nov 09, 2017 ]
A
Not by design. It is hinged to move up and down so pretty sure you can get it apart. You're probably wanting this for the active lines? They are a joke. Buy the camera that will work where you want it to go.
[ James  Nov 08, 2017 ]
A
Yes it is, it comes with another small mounting piece with 3M tape.
[ Julian  Nov 08, 2017 ]
Q
How are you supposed to run the wire to the head unit? Does it require a hole through the back of the license plate or something?
[ Bron  Oct 18, 2017 ]
3 answers
A
I already had a hole near my plate in the bumper. It also looked like I could have run it through the gap between the trim piece and bumper. But, yes you will need to put a hole in the bumper if these are not options. The hole is easy to hide behind the plate though.
[ Jeremy  Oct 20, 2017 ]
A
We got it installed by pro, but there is a tiny hole that was drilled in back of license plate

Q
Does the radio have to be compatible with the active parking lines? How does it know when you are turning the wheel?
[ Jason's Z71  Oct 10, 2017 ]
2 answers
A
The active lines are crap and totally unreliable... cut that wire... my stereo had it's own adjustable lines I use instead... also, dont wire it to reverse or that's the only time it will work
[ Daniel  Jun 09, 2018 ]
A
All of the current aftermarket "active parking lines" work essentially the same way. There is a small gyroscope inside the camera with senses sideways inertia, and represents as much on screen of any video radio. It is not connected directly to the can-bus, therefore is not as accurate as OEM active parking lines. The receiver does not need to be compatible with Active Parking lines for this to work.
