Our take on the JVC KV-CM20 by Crutchfield's Buck Pomerantz
Get a better look at what's behind you
Shift into reverse, and JVC's KV-CM20 rear-view camera gives you a crisp, clear color view of what's behind you on your in-dash video receiver's screen. The camera is housed in a waterproof aluminum case, and connects to your receiver's camera input with its included 24-foot cable.
A wide view makes sure you see everything
The 130-degree horizontal and 101-degree vertical view offers a panoramic look at what's behind you, making it an excellent safety accessory for almost any multimedia receiver. JVC includes an adjustable bracket, mounting hardware, and cables.
Awesome looking camera.

JVC KV-CM20 Reviews
Average Customer Review(s):
Thanks for submitting your review
Compatibility: The JVC KV-CM20 Universal Rear-View Camera can be used as a back-up camera with JVC in-dash monitors. However, the standard composite video output (RCA plug) extension cable makes it compatible with virtually any mobile video monitor.
Waterproof Chassis: The camera is built into a compact waterproof aluminum case, making it perfect for mounting outside the vehicle.
CMOS Optics: The 1/4" color CMOS image sensor has approximately 310,000 pixels to deliver a high quality picture.
Wide Angle Lens: The 130° horizontal and 101° vertical viewing angles provide an excellent near field view of anything behind you. The camera gives you a mirror image for rear view confirmation.
Illumination Range: The rear-view camera provides an illumination range of approximately 0.9 to 100,000 lux. It offers less light distortion from nearby light sources.
Mounting: The rear-view camera comes supplied with a metal mounting bracket that attaches to the camera with two supplied machine screws (already installed), and attaches to your vehicle with its self-adhesive backing or included mounting screw. Once the camera is installed in the mounting bracket the camera's angle can be adjusted to work in your application.

No problems at all, and the video quality is excellent. It comes on when the vehicle is shifted into reverse, but the heading takes about 30 seconds to boot up, so you need to wait just a second after first turning on the car. That's nothing to do with the camera though. [ Lewis Sep 30, 2014 ]
This camera works excellent and the picture is very clear. For the camera to turn on when vehicle is put into reverse you will have to connect your head unit to your vehicles reverse switch. One quick and easy way is to run a line from your brake lights to your head unit. [ Ricky Leon Sep 29, 2014 ]
It hasn't worked in a while at first it was great but I don't know how long it hasn't worked [ KIRT S Sep 29, 2014 ]
You can turn it on even when it is not in reverse. It the coolest feature you can't purchase on a new car. It automatically turns on when you shift into reverse. [ DENNIS W Sep 29, 2014 ]
