Parking would be easy if it weren't for all the things in front of you, behind you, and to the side of you. Alas, many of today's cars and trucks make it harder than it has to be to see the things you'd rather not hit. The best way to take the stress out of parking is to improve your visibility, and the best way to improve your visibility is to add a camera.
This versatile flush-mount camera from Boyo can be used as a side-view or a backup camera, so you can get the view you want where you need it. The universal bracket design can be mounted on your side mirror or above your rear license plate, with the power wire connected to your vehicle's blinker or reverse wire. With an IP67 waterproof rating, you can count on this camera even when the weather gets nasty.
The HD CMOS image sensor gives you crystal-clear images and a 170-degree viewing angle. For more info, you can activate distance guidelines or choose reverse or normal imaging.
Installing this camera yourself? Here's what you should know.
What does it do? Unless otherwise noted, a backup camera is only intended for use backing up your vehicle. (If you require a front-view or constant rear-view camera, check for that capability.)
What tools and supplies will I need? A panel tool, a wire cutter/stripper, a soldering iron, and a rosin-core solder with heat shrink tubing are recommended, along with whatever tools are needed to remove the radio from the dash.
How much wiring is required? Wiring instructions vary from camera to camera. Some cameras have power wiring that can only be connected near the radio. Others let you power the camera at compatible reverse lights. In all cases, the camera must be wired for power and ground, the camera's video output must be connected to the radio/monitor, and the radio/monitor must be connected to a reverse trigger in your vehicle. Some radio replacement interfaces supply a reverse trigger wire for the radio -- using that wire to power your camera will damage the interface.
Will the included video cable be long enough? You'll need to route the camera's video cable from its mounting location outside your vehicle into your vehicle's cabin and all the way to the screen in the dash. This often requires drilling a small hole in your vehicle or filing some metal and or plastic. You'll also need to estimate the length of cable needed to run from the camera to the dash, which will not be a straight shot. Each camera's cable length is listed.

Overview: The Boyo VTB123HD flush-mount HD backup camera features a fixed-angle design that makes it ideal for lip-mounting in the rear of a vehicle, or for use as a side-mount camera, for assistance in lane-changing.
Camera: The VTB123HD features an HD CMOS image sensor with 480 TV lines (720 x 480) of resolution, and a wide 170° diagonal (120° horizontal) viewing angle. The HD camera has a LUX of 0.2 and an IP67 waterproof rating.
Selectable Options: Two looped wires on the camera's attached cable provide the following options:
- White Loop (Normal/Mirror Image): Keeping this loop intact displays a Mirror image, cutting the loop will display a Normal image.
- Blue Loop (Parking Gridlines): Camera will display gridlines with loop intact, cutting loop will remove gridlines.
Power: The camera's attached cable includes 7' of power and ground wire, for attaching at the rear of the vehicle. The 23' video cable (4' on camera, plus 19' extension) includes a built-in wire for extending the power wire to the front of the vehicle. If using the camera as a backup camera, the power wire can be attached to the vehicle's reverse wire. If using as a side-mount (lane changing) camera, the power wire can be attached to the turn signal wire for that side of the vehicle.
Compatibility: The Boyo flush-mount camera's video cable is terminated in a male composite video, making it compatible with most aftermarket video screens and in-dash monitors (sold separately).
Mounting: The VTB123HD is designed to be flush-mounted underneath an overhang on the rear of the vehicle, or on the side of the vehicle. The camera features an integrated friction-fit mount that allows it to slide into the mounting hole and lock into place. A 21mm hole-saw bit is provided for mounting.
- Mounting the VTB123HD requires drilling into the body of the vehicle.
- If side-mounting the camera, the VTB123HD must be mounted to the bottom of a side-view mirror. If mounted upright, the camera image will be displayed upside down.
