Parking lots can get crazy. But Boyo's VTL17LTJ all-weather rear-view cam will guide you with active parking lines that help you into your space. Boyo makes installation more straightforward by mounting this cam onto a sturdy strap that stealthily attaches behind any license plate.

Nice view

Once you power the camera and run the included video cable to the screen in your dash, you'll see a 170º wide-angle view when you're backing up your vehicle. Boyo builds in powerful LED lights to ensure a detailed picture when you're driving at night or in a parking garage, while selectable reverse image and parking lines also make this a perfect choice if you want a front camera.

Bottom line. Solid camera

Crutchfield customer from Spring, TX on 5/12/2019

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

Great little camera. The moving guide line do not really work as well as I had hoped. The light on the back is bright. The creek resolution is great. I installed this on a 2009 Honda CRV and the power wire on the camera side side was not long enough to reach my reverse power supply, so I had to use a jumper wire to tap into my reverse wire, not a big deal. The only reason I give it 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the moving guide lines.

Camera works great. The only downfall of this camera is the quality of the RCA where it hooks into the stereo. Not the tightest fitting RCA so we will see how it holds up over time behind the dash, hopefully no issues in the future. As for the guage of the wiring to hook into all other wires on the truck for power, would just be nice to have something a little thicker, even a 22ga at least.

2008 Jeep Wrangler

Darrell from El Paso, TX on 3/10/2019

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

I am using this on 2008 Jeep Wrangler and I found some mounting issues with the supplied license plate bracket. I had to remove the camera and install the bracket upside down so it would fit under the license plate light. I found a useful YouTube video to help me find the proper reverse wires to connect to. Since the camera sits on the drivers side of the vehicle and not centered, it takes a little bit to get used to, but the camera has a wide angle and led lights which help at night. I'm using this with a Pioneer AVH-2440NEX so you get a great large screen to view and with the custom Crutchfield wiring harness they made it so simple to wire in.

Pros: Great camera view, extra long cables, easy install instructions

Cons: Mounting bracket for Jeep license plate

Fairly easy install and camera works good during the day. the trajectory lines when turning are not accurate and get in the way. Would love to see them work but I will be removing them and using the parking lines from radio.. also view after dark isn't the greatest. I probly wouldn't buy this product again.

Pros: Easy install

Cons: Not good at dark. Trajectory lines are not accurate.

worked at first although the active parking lines are not very accurate. Starting flickering during a heavy rain then the picture went out completely in less than a week. Now it works occasionally but the picture is not always as crisp and clear when first installed.

Pros: crisp clear picture (at first) installs as any other backup camera

Cons: lasted about a week but quit during a heavy rain have to replace it and run the cables again!

Installed on my 2001 F250 7.3 long bed. I was worried that the wire wouldn't be long enough. I ran it along the frame and up through the rubber plug under the drivers foot area. Plenty of wire. Easy set up to my Kenwood head unit. Clear picture and I like that you can clip the wire to delete the backup lines. Highly recommend especially for the price!

Pros: Easy set up Options to delete guide lines Clear picture Night view looks great

Cons: None

Poor video quality in the evening

Carlo from Annville, PA on 12/3/2018

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

I used the camera for about three weeks and I'm not very happy with the quality of the video when there's any light in the background. During the day, there aren't many issues. But, in the evening, it's very difficult to make out what's on the screen. There are LED lights built into the casing for the housing, but I have yet to see them turn on; I'm not sure if they work. Even though the installation was fairly easy, I would not recommend this camera due to the quality of the video in any type of lighting.

Pros: Easy installation

Cons: Poor video quality

Crutchfield response on 12/4/2018
Carlo, we're sorry you're disappointed with your backup camera. Whenever you are not completely satisfied with anything you purchase from Crutchfield, please contact our Customer Support team at 1-800-955-9091. Purchases from Crutchfield can be returned or exchanged within 60 days of the purchase.

Works well

Richard from COLUMBIA, TN on 11/26/2018

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

Installed on 2005 Impala 3.4 Base. Used with a Sony XAV-AV100. Works well, but I did disable the lines. It's nice that the lines are able to be jumped - ie on some cameras, you need to clip the line whereas in this one you can simply remove the jumper or reinstall; could be useful if you ever want to sell the camera/car down the road and the new owner wants to change something.

Pros: Works

Cons: None

Install nightmare in 4Runner

Jack from Chesapeake, VA on 11/26/2018

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

Not suitable for SUVs w a back hath that swings open. The tethers are way too short making installation an absolute nightmare. I have a 4Runner and online videos show many other backup cameras with less bulky connectors that would work better. Also, if you have a latch release above the plate, this is going to be a nuisance the rest of your vehicle's life span. This would probably be great in a sedan, but in a 4Runner, I have to make several modifications to the factory suggested installation. This product should not be recommended for a 4Runner at all.

Pros: Nice packaging

Cons: Supplied connection not appropriate for an SUV with top hinges

Crutchfield customer from Westerville, OH on 11/8/2018

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

Unit works well. Instruction sheet ( only one diagram with notations) should be at least two times larger. If you do not have excellent eye sight, a magnifying glass will be required. Also, a step by step listing of instructions with definitions of terminology should be included. Wiring gage is extremely small, making connections difficult. Increasing the wire size would make installation easier and improve strength, doing so would be very inexpensive to the manufacturer.

Pros: Works well

Cons: Too small wiring size. Too small and too little instruction information

Crutchfield customer from Garrett, IN on 11/1/2018

The install was easy, but the instructions were a little lacking. I tied into the backup light for power as I had read reviews online for some ideas. The picture is clear, the color seems to be accurate, and the led lights do a great job of illuminating behind the truck in the dark. If it holds up it will be well worth the money.

Pros: Simple to install. Better night vision than my other vehicle with its factory camera. Affordable.

Cons: Poor instructions.

Nice Camera, terrible documentation

Wayne from LOUISVILLE on 10/22/2018

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

The camera is easy to setup. But the manual is in such small print, you need a magnifying glass to read it. Better to find it online. The daytime picture is clear and bright. I've only had it installed a few days, but I think like the other reviewers that the active guide lines are generally useless and I'll probably disable them. You should use this to confirm your distance to an object behind and to be sure you are clear, but use your side mirrors for getting between objects. Mostly pleased and since my radio supplied a power lead to the camera that I connected to the red lead, I didn't need the extra power wires to go to the reverse light. That wasn't well documented but is a nice feature.

Pros: Good quality picture

Cons: Terrible documentation

Good image day and night, affordable, is a nice convenience to add on an older vehicle

Pros: Nice mounting option as well as adjustability of actual camera was an affordable option for my Kenwood unit

Cons: Wiring diagram leaves a bit to be desired, if your not strong with vehicle wiring I would suggest reaching out to Crutchfield for support. The connection leads were not even close to being long enough for installation on a minivan. Backup lines are a bit distracting, ended up using thelines on Kenwood unit.For the cost and quality these are minor inconveniences

Good picture quality

Sheldon from Wellsville, KS on 9/15/2018

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

Bought to hook up to my Kenwood DDX 9902S receiver in my 2005 Equinox. I didn't want to spend what Kenwood wants for theirs, bought this since one of the Crutchfield advisers suggested. I think it has a pretty good picture day and night. I use the back up lines in the Kenwood, and after reading reviews won't hook up the jumper for Boyo's active lines. I agree instructions are very bad (non existent really) and printed way too small. I would like to see back up cameras with longer leads from the camera for back hatch applications where tail lights aren't in the hatch, especially with such a short reverse light lead. It would have been nice for that to be where the power in leads are. I didn't use the trigger wire (hook up to reverse light circuit) so trailer loads can be monitored (by the passenger for safety) while going down the road.

Pros: Good, clean picture

Cons: Vague instructions, too small of printed instructions, too short camera lead/reverse light lead.

Disappointed

Crutchfield customer from Tomball, TX on 8/15/2018

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

Overall very disappointed with this camera. I've tried 3 different cameras to date (different models and manufacturers), and am tired of disassembling my car trim and carpeting for having to run wiring each time. This Boyo unit looked good on paper like it was going to be the final solution.

Pros: Pros: great resolution, clarity, good nighttime view, wide angle view, impressive depth of view

Cons: Cons (and the reason I give it only 2 stars): the active parking lines are HORRIBLE. So bad that they are distracting whenever the camera is displaying. When my steering wheel is barely turned, the active lines go full turn, then they refuse to straighten out even when I straighten my steering. I realize these are rendered only via software (not by any actual link to my steering wheel), but the software needs serious fix.

Jim from Penngrove, CA on 8/6/2018

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

I bought this camera because it has active parking lines that track the trajectory of the vehicle. The lines react pretty quickly as the front wheels begin to change direction, however they are quite exaggerated in that they indicate a trajectory that is not an actual representation of the movement of the vehicle. Further, they're very slow to react (if at all) to turning the steering wheel in the opposite direction. Fortunately Boyo provides a simple disconnect to turn off the active lines. I'm going to play with it for a while, but am pretty sure that I'll end up disconnecting the lines.

This boyo camera is working great in my Impala, allowing me to easily see directly behind the car. The led light are nice touch adding illumination so the camera is still useable in the evening hours. My only complaint is that the instructions that came with the camera didn't explain much, but after watching a few videos the problem was fairly easy to overcome. If your looking for an easy and affordable way to add a backup camera, this would be a solid choice.

Pros: works well, decent picture, led lights

Cons: instructions were poor

This backup camera was installed after several hours of chasing a power issue. My biggest complaint is that the printed instructions are horrible and you have to use the online instructions to even read it. Secondly if you use wire splicers the wire is so thin the splicer doesn't cut the wire it just bends. This my chasing power issues for an hour. Lastly the camera sticks up just enough from the bottom mounted position that the tail gate still hits it and moves the camera every time.

Clear image, wide field. I took off one star because we had to disable the parking lines because they were acting strangely, but I don't really need them anyway. An excellent price for a good product.

Do not buy this! Not worth $0.99.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

waste of money. Worked for 2 attempts then stopped. Not about to unwire the unit out so now it just sits idle in the jeep as a reminder to never buy Boyo ever again. Crutchfield should remove this garbage from their site rather than sell customers shoddy products. Instructions are nonexistent.

Pros: Crutchfield's tech support was very helpful to get it up and running. You will need tech support for this garbage.

Cons: instructions suck. product sucks.

I was looking for an upgrade for my existing backup camera. This was perfect. Super clean, brackets mount behind your license plate. Picture quality is really good. Super easy install. Thanks Tim ( my service advisor ) for recommending this model.

Pros: Clean and easy install.

Cons: None

Camera works well. Installation took about an hour on my Silverado. Only hiccup was determining trigger wire connections. Crutchfield helped with that. (Only need to connect one end to +V ) I used the 12v for the reverse lights for power and trigger.

Pros: Great view, led's are bright and active lines work well

Cons: Install instructions could be better

The camera works great, the camera comes with several options including lines, or no lines. I use the clear lines. Night time back up is good. Picture is clear, if you don't want the license plate bracket, comes with a clip. Lots of choices and great picture

Pros: Great picture with lots of options.

Cons: Really only thing I can think is that you can see the camera unlike some of the new cars with hidden cameras

Steve T from Biloxi, MS on 4/24/2018

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This is a great camera for the price. The installation is simple, but instructions were somewhat lacking. I emailed BOYO about what to do with the extra red wire by the RCA jack and they provided additional helpful instructions within a couple of hours. Hook two wires to the backup light for power. Plug the RCA jack into your head unit and the red wire to the reverse "trigger wire" in your head unit or fuse box and you are good to go. The backup lines are are a little off, but still helpful.

Pros: Great price Picture quality is good BOYO customer support is responsive

Cons: Instructions are minimal Backup lines are a little cheesy

Jon from Decatur, GA on 3/5/2018

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

In every possible way, this camera has impressed me. Since my head unit has inputs for front and rear cameras, I bought two, and I'm thrilled with the results. The picture is clear, the LEDs provide ample light for night driving, and the camera itself is fairly discrete tucked under the license plate (the front camera is less discrete, but that's to be expected). Installation was as easy as could be expected (you do have to run a cable from the trunk all the way to the head unit, so it's painful in that regard). For this price, I'd recommend this camera to anyone.

Pros: Great picture. Discrete profile. Uncomplicated install.

Cons: None--This camera is a steal at the price it's going for.

The camera provides a clear picture and installation was not terribly difficult. My only complaint is that the RCA cable and trip wire were about 3 feet short for my installation which was for a Toyota 4 Runner. This required me to purchase additional cable, wire and a female connector. Outside of that it's a great camera and didn't cost a great deal

Pros: Great picture

Cons: Cable and wiring too short

A camera to make others jealous!

Brian from Winter Garden, FL on 1/9/2018

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

Great picture quality and it's amazing how the lines move when you turn! It's better than the camera that came stock in my Range Rover! It came with a well thought out license plate mount as well as a small mount that I used to tuck it up under the trunk lip of my daughter's prius. I'd highly recommend this camera, the only downside is abysmal installation instructions. It doesn't even show the voltage requirements (prius factory harness only puts 6v to the camera, so this was important for me to know) and some wires are just labeled "trigger" with no explanation of where they would hook to. Once you figure out the wiring (Crutchfield can help you with that) you'll have a camera that will make others jealous!

Pros: Great quality, awesome moving lines, well thought out brackets

Cons: installation instructions are abysmal - you will need help from Crutchfield to interpret them unless you're familiar with installing rear cameras already

Camera is working great! Nice wide view and image is good. Camera is small and not that noticeable. I really like the light - it lights up the whole rear area making things more visible not only on the camera, but for myself when looking in mirrors and over my shoulder. The Crutchfield peeps were great at helping with some install details. Every car is different and there are several different ways to wire these things in. Install on my 06 Explorer was pretty involved - getting the car interior panels apart and wires ran to my head unit required about 3/4 of the rear hatch to be pulled apart, and some drilling. About a 4-5 hour job. Well worth it knowing there aren't kids, pets etc. behind me. My dad had some butylene rubber that worked well in several areas with protecting the wires.

Pros: Works well. Great safety feature. Extra Back-up light to improve night visibility.

Cons: Pretty involved install. Instructions are a bit vague.

Camera has great picture day and night. I would have given this 5 stars but the installation instructions are pathetic. The sad part is they don't need to be. All they provide is a small connection diagram. If you have installed backup cameras before, you would probably be okay, but for a first timer, you will end up calling Crutchfield tech support.

Pros: Great backup camera

Cons: Poor installation instructions

Features

Front or Backup Camera: The Boyo VTL17LTJ can be used as a backup camera with a mirror image or front camera with a normal image. To use as a front camera, remove the red jumper on the wires labeled "mirror image/non-mirror switch".

Note: The Boyo VTL17LTJ 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/ LED Lights: The Boyo VTL17LTJ backup camera is equipped with a CMOS image sensor with a 720 (h) x 480 (h) resolution for high quality video. Integrated LEDs on either side of the camera provide excellent visibility at night.

Wide Viewing Angle + Angle Adjustment: The VTL17LTJ 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 VTL17LTJ 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 remove the red jumper on the wires labeled "parking line on/off".

Waterproof (IP67): The Boyo VTL17LTJ 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 VTL17LTJ 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 VTL17LTJ 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 VTL17LTJ 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 VTL17LTJ 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.

The video (RCA) camera wire connects to the back of your radio head unit. There should be a round jack that you plug into. I assume your radio has the ability to display backup image? So, you have to run the video wire all the way to the radio.

how does the active part of the lines work without some form of steering input?

Good question. One for the techies that designed it. The active lines work just fine

This is NOT a dynamic backup camera. The lines are preset and straight, they don't bend or curve based on your steering trajectory. They can be deactivated if you have another source that will add lines, such as your stereo, that way you don't end up with two sets of lines.

To be honest with you I don't know. All I know is when I hooked it up with my head unit it has the steering lines with it. Not sure if the head unit does it or the camera itself.

To be honest I didn't install the camera my friend did for me and I was there it's supposed to plug in to your headunit if it has a camera mode and you run it to the back of your car mount it above license plate and there's another wire that you solder to any source of ground and once everything was working the lines would just move when in reverse idk how to explain it really

I would guess it's some kind of gyroscope. That feature is pretty useless. I turned that feature off and just use the parking assist from my head unit. I do like the product very much though. It works well, I just feel that particular feature is useless. Hope that helps!

Yes you can....simply remove the "jumper cap" from the blue wire and they will no longer show.

According to the instructions, yes you can turn off the parking lines. There is a jumper on the wiring harness that you simply remove to turn them off. I have not physically done this, but the jumper is there.

Yes they can be turned off.

Yes there is a jumper wire on a board to the camera or the camera.

Yes, but I find them extremely helpful in my Ford F-250 truck. They did need to be calibrated properly, I parked the tires on a long straight line and did one side, then moved the truck so I could adjust the other side. They have worked like a charm ever since!!
[ Gregory  May 08, 2018 ]
A
Yes, just follow the included instructions.
[ JULIANNA  May 08, 2018 ]

Yes, you just remove a jumper on the cable

What do I need to install?

It comes with most everything you need. The only additional item you'll need is something to tie the power wires in to the existing wires. I just used wire nuts, you could also solder or use T junctions.
