Good when it works

Louis C from Lake Jackson, TX on 8/10/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Installed per the instructions. Camera worked for a few days then starting to come on for a sec the screen went black. Crutchfield sent a replacement and I installed it. It started doing the same thing after a few days. Frustrated I called Crutchfield tech support and they said I should power the camera from the aux power instead of the reverse tail light power as called for in the installation instructions. That involves installing a relay on the reverse light and pulling more wire. I just didn't have it in me to crawl under the truck again so I procrastinated. Meanwhile the camera started working just fine...I don't know why. I gave it a two stars because of my troubles. I would have given it a 5 otherwise as I like the camera and the image is good for the price point.

A review and some info

Rob from Newport News, VA on 7/6/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I installed two Boyo VTL17IRTJ cameras recently, specifically for rear view use (backup). These cameras do the job nicely. The installation is not likely to be quick and easy. The instructions are minimal and the print is abominably small. (What were they thinking?) Routing the cable is probably going to be the hardest part of the installation. You are likely to have to drill a hole in your car and pull down some trim. Get a set of trim removal tools. They are cheap. You will have to hunt up at least a back-up lamp or reverse indicator connection and a ground to connect to. Once installed, you will find that you have parking guidelines in the view, unless you cut the blue wire during installation to disable the option. These guides are often a love-hate thing, so be sure you can get to the blue wire easily in case you want to cut it after the installation. Some reviewers complain that the lines go off into space. This is simply because the camera is aimed too high. Tilt it down. The picture can appear washed out (saturated) during the daytime, and the colors aren't true. It seems to be a compromise so that you will have good night vision, which is when you need this thing most. This camera is well worth its price.

Good Camera

Jim from Bordentown, NJ on 5/13/2019

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This is a good camera once you figure out the connections. The video is clear and it shows a wide angle. Wiring the camera is not hard, but the instructions from the manufacturer are useless. I called Crutchfield and in 5 minutes they explained the wiring connections I needed to make to complete the installation.

Pros: Discrete, good picture, great technical help from Crutchfield.

Cons: Poor instructions from the manufacturer

Okay but not the best

Crutchfield customer from Bluff City, TN on 3/31/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Camera is okay , parking lines not so good. first thing I did was cut wire to remove parking lines as the curved lines didn't seem very accurate. I am using the lines within my Kenwood receiver if I need parking lines, but I mainly use the camera for hooking a trailer to my hitch. Resolution is pretty good for a price to quality ratio.

Pros: good resolution for the price

Cons: Parking guidelines not very accurate

First experience with a back up camera, so I really have nothing to compare it to. Overall though, I'm very satisfied with it. It works well, and performs as advertised. Installation was a bear, but that's kind of to be expected when you're running wires the entire length of a vehicle, and trying to keep them completely out of sight. The actual mounting of the camera was easy, and the instructions were clear.

I was really disappointed with this camera. It was recommended by Crutchfield but there was no discussion about the camera picture quality. However, by the time you find out you don't like the camera you already have the cables ran and it's too late. I asked what's the difference between a more expensive camera and I got a vague answer that told me the salesman did not know.

Camera works fine but the picture is not near as clear as the Kenwood can produce. At least that is my experience. I took advice from Crutchfield Tech and ran the power to to radio hot and ground. Now I have camera in reverse and also when going forward can turn the camera on to see my trailer. I do agree with other reviews that the guidelines are sluggish. I really don't need them and there is a loop wire you can cut to turn them off.

Nice camera that I used on my 2009 Ford Econoline Van. I hooked it to the Panasonic 4400 which I bought at the same time. I recommend you have Crutchfield make the wiring kit as it made installing this a no-brainer. The documentation with the camera was useless but it was pretty self-explanatory. I did not use the licese plate holder as this camera needs to be in the middle of the vehicle. I bolted it to the bumper.

Pros: Stupid simple

Cons: Needs to be mounted in middle of the truck.

A good price and seems fairly simple to install but the instructions provided are lacking. Still trying to figure out where the red cable on the monitor end should connect to. The picture currently has horizontal noise lines running thru it. Hopefully the image will improve once the red wire is connected. :)

Documantation lacking

Rick from Longview, WA on 12/26/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Instructions were all but worthless. Print was so small I needed a magnifier even with glasses. Of course the instructions only show one end of the wiring. Also listed the connection this way "(12VDC rear lamp)". What they mean is back up lamp. Didn't convert from Chinese well at all. Also the red wire that is attached to the camera RCA plug goes through to the red wire on the other end of the plug. Fail to mention that also. Watch the YouTube video it will help more than anything else out there. I have no clue why the instruction are never updated, the feedback on the defective instruction is old. It works, but don't expect much more than the typical Offshore Quality. Especially as far as the instructions are concerned.

Pros: works

Cons: Directions are worthless

Great little camera. Installation is fairly easy, depending how far you want to go to hide the wire. The documentation is not all that good and lacks an explanation of different setup options. This youtube video answered all my questions and made my install so much easier. (www.youtube.com/watch?v=rHORKUqlEM4). Would definitely recommend this camera

Camera is okay, guidelines are worthless

Rob from Spudville, Idaho on 11/3/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I've had this for about 1 year now, and I finally am getting around to taking apart the back end of my Lincoln Navigator and cutting the wire for the stupid guidelines. Couple of annoying things about the guidelines: 1) There's no adjustment and they extend up too high, so it looks like it is trying to guide to to back up and fly into the sky. 2) The active parking lines are ridiculous! Since they of course don't tap in to any actual steering system, they must use G-forces to make them respond. Maybe if you always backed up at 20 mph, a design like this would work, but since I don't back up that quickly, there's just not enough g-force, so the lines lag waaaaay behind. Too bad. Seemed like a cool idea, but the reality is the sensitivity is just to low, so I'd call it a fail. (was a big selling point to me compared to others I was considering). Might be better if you could choose to leave the lines static, but maybe not, since they are the guidelines to heaven. Camera quality is okay.

Pros: Camera is fine. Not great, not bad... just fine.

Cons: Guidelines look like they are trying to guide you to heaven, and to get them to be active in a responsive manner, you have to back up at about at about 20 mph. ;)

Great Picture, Great Price

Rusty from Ellettsville, IN on 10/15/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

first time installing a backup camera and it was fairly easy. The instructions were horrible, basically just a diagram in very small print but after watching a YouTube video everything was very simple. The only knock on the item is the connection from the camera unit to the cable running to the head unit is just a slide in plug with no locking tab. I taped it together when i installed it and it worked fantastic until i went for a drive and the next time i started the car it had NO Signal show up on screen. Pushed connector tighter and came right back on. Happened again on second trip. Redid the tape again and hoping it stays, if not i will be using some LocTite on the connection. Otherwise fantastic picture, washes out a little in direct sunlight but so does the factory one on my Jeep GC.

Pros: Easy Install Great picture

Cons: Poor connector with no locking tab Instructions could have been better

First camera I've used

Mike K. from Wilmington, DE on 10/8/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This is my first camera. The install was pretty easy, and thanks to Crutchfield's customersupporrt, I was able to install it with no problems. I hooked it up to a Pioneer mvh 200ex. It works pretty well with the stereo,but sometimes the screen gets a little messed up after shifting in reverse. There will be weird numbers or faded pictures from the camera on the radio and usb part of the stereo. One time I had to actually disconnect my battery due to the camera not turning on in reverse but when I was in drive. I'm not quite sure if that was a problem with the camera or the stereo though. Overall it does what is should and works just fine. I guess technically it's a type of computer and like all the other computers out there, its gonna have glitches.

Pros: Easy install Clear view

Cons: Has glitches with pioneer mvh 200ex

Nice camera with a very wide view. The backup lines can not be adjusted so if you want to have something that works get a head unit with them. Also, the camera does stick out a bit from the license plate. I have a large SUV with a step bumper. You have to be careful when standing on the bumper so that you do not step on the camera.

Decent camera

Bryan from Belews Creek , NC on 8/14/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I mounted the camera on the back of my enclosed landscaping trailer above the ramp door to act as an rear-view mirror when towing. The colors are not quite as accurate as I would have expected. Greens look reddish on a sunny day but under fluorescent lighting the colors seem more correct. Could be due to the angle of light hitting the lens but haven't looked much into it. That being said, it's fine for my needs. Even with the camera 8ft off the ground the IR LED's are bright enough to see clearly behind the trailer on the head unit. I'm not using the parking lines so can't comment on them. One thing I didn't like is that the camera has about 4-5ft. of cable coming out of it to a seemingly proprietary 4-pin connector (containing both power and video leads). The mating portion of the connector splits the power and video which is fine, but no matter what your video will always pass through all 18ft or so of the composite cable as there is no way to shorten this. The Jensen, on the other hand, has about 3-4ft of video cable from the camera to a female RCA connector so you could use any length extension cable after it. My total video run is about 50ft and I am getting noticeable video noise from the brake/turn signals (but have not played with using a different ground or supply tie-in point yet). The package came with an RCA male to male adapter but that seems pointless...it really needs a female to female adapter to add an extension cable for the video.

Pros: IR LED's do a good job at night

Cons: No way to add RCA extension cable without buying an additional adapter Colors are shifted under some lighting conditions

It's okay.

Crutchfield customer from Minneapolis, MN on 7/23/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

It's okay... but for the price, I expected better than "okay." Things I like: long cable, easy mounting and installation. Things I don't like: the backup lines. I'd prefer static ones, the constant "snaking" according to steering wheel movement is distracting and unhelpful. It's especially bad if you're checking the camera for safety reasons via an override while driving on the highway, for instance to monitor your hitch or if you're driving a cargo vehicle with no rear windows and you need to check for vehicles behind you. Every movement of the steering wheel makes the lines move on the screen which is very distracting and not what you want when you're doing a quick proximity check.

Pros: long cable easy mounting easy installation

Cons: overpriced backup lines are not static and distracting

Good Cam, No Install Instructions

John T. from St Paul, MN on 7/23/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Overall, good picture quality and has the ability to adjust picture settings when paired w/Pioneer AVH1440. Installation instructions are absolutely terrible/non-existent. To add insult to injury, improper installation can (and did, in my case) fry out the electronics ahead of it. Once installed properly, you realize it is so easy to install, that you have to wonder why there are no install instructions included (either from Boyo or Crutchfield). I understand that there are a variety of ways to install depending on a person's requirements, but a simple instruction sheet that briefly describes the various methods would have saved me 2 days of labor replacing damaged equipment. I did call Crutchfield's tech line prior to installing and was given bad information, and to their credit, they replaced my entire order, which is exactly why I buy from them. All things considered, cam is very easy to install once you understand which wires to connect and which ones not to connect. That is why I was so frustrated with the whole deal, it's so simple that there should be absolutely no reason why a 3-4 sentence w/diagram install sheet couldn't be included with Crutchfield's otherwise great install information. I have to believe that virtually every camera, regardless of who makes it, installs almost the same way, so there wouldn't be a great deal of work involved in creating one.

Pros: - Good cam picture.

Cons: - No instructions from Boyo or Crutchfield on install. - Back up lines are not as accurate as OEM lines.

It works OK, but I have it on a super duty truck and the view is not quite wide enough for where the camera mounts on the license plate. I think it would be better on a mid size car. The parking lines are shaky and weird. Easy install and extra long wire are nice. Good camera overall. Great for hitching to trailers. Not great for backing into narrow space.

Pros: Easy install. Long cable included.

Cons: Narrow view for my big truck.

Camera was a great addition to an old truck. However, the view has a strange coloring that I'll just have to get used to. I'm not unhappy with it, but I had hoped for a little better picture. Beggars can't be choosers. Great price for what you get.

Pros: price point

Cons: image is OK

This camera is really nice, day or night especially after you adjust the light settings. I installed it forward high facing downward on the front grill guard of my Dodge Ram 2500 4x4 CTD. I installed a toggle switch on the red positive battery wire normally getting its signal from the reverse light and the black wire to ground. On the other end the one wire goes to a signal from the radio and the other goes to video in. Now when I flip the toggle switch, I go from camera one to camera two on the pioneer double din stereo . When I'm done viewing the camera I flip the toggle switch off and the camera doesn't have power running to it. I also cut the mirror wire and the on/off wire for the Gide lines that are located close to the camera end ,this way I don't see the lines and the image is correct on my stereo screen.

Pros: Great camera

Cons: Instructions

Works good. Looks good. Like that I can turn the lines off if I want. Conceals the bracket nicely behind the license plate. My only issue is that the installation instructions stink. It has red wires at both ends. The instructions don't explain it. Had to resort to YouTube and buying another fuse as I blew it for my back up lights. FYI - it. You connect the red at the radio so it comes on with the radio (switched) do not connect the red at the rear to anything. Tape it off.

Pros: Looks nice and the bracket is not visible. Nice way to add on and not have to drill holes!

Cons: Poor instructions.

Bret from Tucson, AZ on 3/18/2018

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I used the preinstalled license plate mount. Also comes with another option for mounting elsewhere. The picture is very clear in both day and night lighting. Significantly better than a separate, more expensive camera. It has animated guiding lines that move when you turn. It would be nice if the left/right movements were graduated based on more sensitive steering input detection like some of the nicer cameras I've seen, but that's understandable given the price. This camera only has three guide line indications: full left, full right, and straight back. Nothing in-between. Three electricity wires on the camera: two at the rear (one hot/one ground) and one that comes off the yellow RCA video cable terminal at the front, designed to trigger your screen's reverse sensor. I had already run a separately purchased wire to the front based on a previous experience with a different camera, so I didn't need this little trigger wire and taped it off. Save yourself the time and look for this feature before you run extra wires. Only complaint is that the manufacturer's instructions are HORRIBLY inadequate. But that's an industry standard, not particular to this model. Crutchfield's tech support was very helpful as usual, so this wasn't a problem. Overall satisfied. Would recommend to friends.

Pros: Excellent picture Low Price Wiring design saves you the trouble of buying a separate wire for the reverse trigger Good mounting options included

Cons: Manufacturer instructions are terrible, no help at all (mitigated by Crutchfield tech support)

Cheap camera that is easy to install, terrible picture quality though is a step above useless. Extremely pixelated and can badly tell the difference between the street and the curb. Anything in direct sunlight is overexposed and shows up white. Night time its just muddy, can't see any detail, and If I use my aftermarket backup lights at night you can't hardly see anything in where they land because its still overexposed.

Pros: Cheap, easy install

Cons: The first camera phone ever had better picture quality

Josh from Tucker, GA on 12/27/2017

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Good camera for the money. I bought this camera after consulting with Crutchfiekd. I am not disappointed. It fits neatly on my car, and was reasonably easy to install. My only gripe is that the instructions are lacking. The supplied cable has a black and red lead on the camera end, and a red wire and RCA cable on the head unit end. Splice the red and black wires on the camera end to a reverse light. The red wire on the RCA end I had to splice to the purple and white (reverse) line coming from the radio. As some have noted you won't be framing any prints from this camera. It is a low-res composite signal so I am not surprised.

Pros: Easy to install License plate bracket and screw on mount included Great support from Crutchfield

Cons: Poor instruction manual

Good value, IR works well, Active parking lines: not so much.

Mike from Jamestown, ND on 12/13/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This is a good camera for the money. Mounting with the license plate is handy for some applications. The IR function works pretty well at night. The active parking lines have a mind of their own and are kind of distracting. They only mildly track the direction of the vehicle, for this reason I will probably disable them and us the head unit fixed lines. Allow your self a lot of time for fishing wires during the install.

Pros: The IR function works pretty well at night.

Cons: The active parking lines have a mind of their own.

It was very easy to install and easy to attach to the license plate, the only problems I have are that the quality could be better, and the active parking lines aren't the most accurate.

Nice backup camera

Sailor from Bothell, WA on 11/29/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Nice, simple, inexpensive back up camera that works well in the rain and dark. (Also, please remember the vertical adjustment for this camera is done by moving the camera up and down, the horizontal adjustments made inside your stereo system.) A good compatible stereo system is key. Mine sets up the movement lines, parking lines etc and allows easy horizontal adjustment. Be prepared to run the video and 12V power cable all the way up forward to the stereo from the license plate region and the also to the backup light and ground. I have a 2005 Honda CRV and had to pop off all the panels on the right side to do this properly and also the multi-light lens for the back up light access. Also removed the head unit with the stereo. I was replacing the stereo with a touch screen hands free stereo anyways, so it went well. Luckily I bought the inexpensive tool set Crutchfield offers and, although time consuming, all went really well, best of all everything went back together and worked the first time! It primarily helped me call the Crutchfield techs. Chris chatted with me for an hour and used my cellphone cam to point out key potential problem items and really saved me a lot of time. It also helped to see a Youtube video showing how to do the rear door panel removal and access/install of a camera in a CRV.

Pros: Well made camera. Installation is straightforward with panel removal tools. Simple to adjust. Good vision in low light and rain.

Cons: Takes time to do correctly.

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 is 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.

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.

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 ]

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.

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.

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

Q
is the bracket removable if I wanted to mount it elsewhere?

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.

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.

Yes it is, it comes with another small mounting piece with 3M tape.

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?

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.

Q
Does the radio have to be compatible with the active parking lines? How does it know when you are turning the wheel?

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.
