Our take on the Boyo VTL402C / VTL422C by Crutchfield's Buck Pomerantz
You've got a video monitor up front, so why not add safety and convenience to your vehicle? Boyo's VTL-Series rear-view camera bolts to your license plate, then connects to your in-dash monitor with its included 24-1/2' cable. Shift into reverse, and your screen willl display what's behind your vehicle automatically. You'll really appreciate this feature when you're parking in a tight spot, backing out of a driveway with limited view, or driving an extra-large vehicle.
This ultra-slim and stealthy device utilizes CMOS chip technology to keep the cost down without sacrificing picture quality. The camera swivels up and down, so you can choose the best line of sight for your vehicle. And you'll get a great peripheral view with the camera's 150-degree viewing angle. Warranty: 1 year.

Overview: The Boyo VTL402C Ultra Slim Bar-type License Plate Camera is designed to provide you a clear wide-angle view from the rear of your vehicle. It can be used to assist you in backing up the vehicle, or to keep an eye on an item you are towing. It can be connected to a separate rear-view monitor (such as the Boyo VTM3600), or to many in-dash audio-video head units with a composite video or rear-camera input.
Compatibility: The VTL402C's standard composite video output (RCA plug) makes it compatible with virtually any mobile video monitor featuring a rear view camera input.
Zinc Alloy Housing: The VTL402C's bar-type bracket is made from zinc alloy metal and covered in a chrome finish with a scratch-resistant coating. The camera's waterproof (IP67) housing is made from the same long-lasting, durable material. The rear view camera can be angled up and down within the bar-type bracket.
Rear View Camera: The VTL402C's rear view camera features a highly sensitive 1/4" DSP color CMOS image sensor with approximately 322,752 effective pixels (656 horizontal x 492 vertical) for true color reproduction and clear picture quality. The camera features a wide-angle lens with a 150° vertical and horizontal viewing angle providing an excellent field of vision behind you in your vehicle.
Installation: The VTL402C attaches to your vehicle's existing license plate frame with the supplied hardware. The integrated rear view camera features an attached 21" video/power/ground cable which connects to the supplied 24.5' video/power/ground extension cable. The extension cable is then routed from outside of the vehicle through your vehicle's interior to your vehicle's display monitor or optional stand-alone monitor (like the Boyo VTM3600). The composite video connector of the extension cable needs to be plugged into the composite video rear-view camera input on your display monitor and the power/ground lead needs to be connected to your vehicle's 12-volt electrical system.
