Nice view

Once you power the camera and run the included video cable to the compatible aftermarket monitor or receiver 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 (v) 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.

Customer Q&A

15 questions already asked

Q
Can I have camera connected to ignition (i.e. always on), but have LED lights connected to reverse light?
[ Tanya  Mar 28, 2020 ]
2 answers
A
Yea, I have my car camera always on (not this model), I can hit the back up button on my stereo going down the highway and look behind me. The one I have this way doesn't have the LED - If I remember right on this one, it is only one positive lead, so it is either all on or not. I don't think they can be separated.
[ Kevin  Mar 28, 2020 ]
A
The LED lights will only come on when in reverse. No need to wire separately, in fact you can't wire separately.
[ Mike  Mar 28, 2020 ]
Q
Do they make a license plate frame that this camera will fit into?
[ Louis  Mar 02, 2020 ]
1 answer
A
I put the license plate and frame on top of the camera and bolted it together.
[ Paul  Mar 02, 2020 ]
Q
are there instruction for routing wire from the camera to the dash of a 2005 Dodge Dakota Quad Cab?
[ phil  Jan 09, 2020 ]
1 answer
A
I didn't get routing instructions for my 2010 Tacoma but I looked under the cab and saw a bundle of wires going thru a grommet and fed the wires thru that and zip tied to a wire bundle going to the rear tail lights
[ james  Jan 09, 2020 ]
Q
"Active parking lines"??Are the lines just straight lines, or do they curve to show you a projected path?
[ Renzo  Aug 14, 2019 ]
5 answers
A
The camera has a sensor to detect turning and makes the lines curve. Don't rely on them. Use as guide line. I turned them off by a jumper in the wire harness.
[ James  Aug 21, 2019 ]
A
It curves to show a projected path.
[ Paul  Aug 15, 2019 ]
A
They curve, but I wasn't a fan of that feature. I ended up turning them off by disconnecting one of the wires. It's labeled right on them. I opted to use the lines from my stereo. The camera quality was really good.
[ Tony  Aug 15, 2019 ]
A
Depending on your vehicle they do bend and show your turn as you back up.
[ D  Aug 15, 2019 ]
A
lines curve
[ TIM  Aug 15, 2019 ]
Q
I have a 2009 Nissan Altima . Can you tell me where the parking and reverse cables are, so I can wire the rear-view camera, that I got from Crutchfied?
[ GARY  Jun 28, 2019 ]

Q
is power hook up down to the vehicle backup light?
[ ELGuapo  Apr 17, 2019 ]
2 answers
A
That is the most common place. It allows the camera to turn on and off with the rear view lights. If you purchased the camera from Crutchfield our tech support can help you get the wires connected. You'll find their number at the bottom of your invoice.
[ Cosmo  May 03, 2019 ]  Staff
A
That is how I like to do it, so the backup lights trigger the camera.
[ ou812damn  May 01, 2019 ]
Q
Hodo I calibrate the parking lines? They are way off
[ don  Mar 29, 2019 ]
1 answer
A
You can turn them off, but can't adjust them. Since it's not tied into the steering, it's kind of a guess on it's part.
[ David  Mar 29, 2019 ]
Q
Is this camera BOYO VTL17LT compatible with a Sony XAVAX1000 in dash Digital receiver?
[ Ted  Mar 15, 2019 ]
2 answers
A
Yes
[ JOE  Mar 20, 2020 ]
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 ]
2 answers
A
Yes I have same set up
[ JOE  Mar 20, 2020 ]
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.
