Active parking lines and LED lights

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.

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.

A
Replaced factory stereo in my 2005 Equinox with a Kenwood DDX9902S. I wanted a back up camera, Crutchfield Support recommended this over the Kenwood cameras. He said he has installed a few different cameras in friends vehicles, this is the one he chooses now with a great picture quality. I also like that this mounts behind license plate so I don't have to drill holes, prime, etc...Cost is cheaper than other license plate cameras, this one doesn't cover the plate which is illegal in some states.

8 questions already asked

Q
Is this camera BOYO VTL17LT compatible with a Sony XAVAX1000 in dash Digital receiver?
[ Ted  Mar 15, 2019 ]
1 answer
A
Yes. The Boyo VTL17LT uses a RCA video connection and the Sony XAV-AX1000 has a RCA video input on the back. They are very much compatible.
[ Cosmo  Mar 18, 2019 ]  Staff
Q
Would this work with the alpine ixl-w650?
[ Connor  Feb 21, 2019 ]
1 answer
A
I do not see in the Alpine W650 specs that it is capable of review camera or backup camera. So, I would say it won't work with it.
[ James  Feb 25, 2019 ]
Q
where do you connect the camera wires?
[ thomas  Dec 31, 2018 ]
2 answers
A
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.
[ James  Jan 04, 2019 ]
A
At the taillights
[ MICHELLE  Jan 04, 2019 ]
Q
What's the deal with the trigger wire? It's hot anytime the key is in acc or run. No where is that spelled out so I'm sharing here to save potential installers a heads up. DO NOT hook it up to your backup lights...instant regret. D-:

Q
how does the active part of the lines work without some form of steering input?
[ redzg  Sep 03, 2018 ]
5 answers
A
Good question. One for the techies that designed it. The active lines work just fine
[ Joseph  Sep 03, 2018 ]
A
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.
[ Gregory  Sep 03, 2018 ]
A
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.
[ christopher  Sep 03, 2018 ]
A
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
[ John  Sep 03, 2018 ]
A
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!
[ Tony  Sep 03, 2018 ]
Q
Can you disable the active parking lines?
[ NickF  May 08, 2018 ]
7 answers
A
Yes you can....simply remove the "jumper cap" from the blue wire and they will no longer show.
[ Terry J.  May 11, 2018 ]
A
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.
[ Joseph  May 08, 2018 ]
A
Yes they can be turned off.
[ Amy  May 08, 2018 ]
A
Yes there is a jumper wire on a board to the camera or the camera.
[ TIM  May 08, 2018 ]
A
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 ]
A
Yes, you just remove a jumper on the cable
[ David  May 08, 2018 ]
Q
Will this work with a Pioneer CarPlay AVH-2300NEX?
[ Thomas  Jan 03, 2018 ]
1 answer
A
Yes, that's the setup I have and it works very well.
[ JEFFREY D  Jan 03, 2018 ]
Q
What do I need to install?
[ Nando  Oct 15, 2017 ]
1 answer
A
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.
