About the Kenwood CMOS-240U

Jon Paul

A versatile camera with multiple mounting options

Kenwood's CMOS-240U backup camera is tiny — less than a cubic inch — so it'll fit unobtrusively on the front or rear of almost any vehicle. Once installed, shifting into reverse will let you check out the view on your receiver's video screen. It works with a wide variety of receivers, not just Kenwood, so it's a great choice for any car or truck

A versatile camera with multiple mounting options

Kenwood's CMOS-240U backup camera is tiny — less than a cubic inch — so it'll fit unobtrusively on the front or rear of almost any vehicle. Once installed, shifting into reverse will let you check out the view on your receiver's video screen. It works with a wide variety of receivers, not just Kenwood, so it's a great choice for any car or truck

This full-color camera captures a 125-degree horizontal view and 103-degree vertical view, so you'll really get the big picture — especially helpful when backing up in a large vehicle or when towing. You'll also appreciate the excellent low-light sensitivity, overexposure reduction, and helpful parking guidelines.

Front view, too

If you're looking for a 360-degree view, the CMOS-240U features selectable reverse/non-reverse imaging, so you can mount it on the front of your vehicle as a second camera. The included 4-way mounting bracket gives you plenty of handy installation options.

The 24-foot cable and harness assembly is long enough for most vehicles and includes a composite video connector, which means it'll work with almost any aftermarket video receiver.

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.

Note: A rear-view camera provides an additional view when reversing your vehicle. It is intended to be used in conjunction with your rear- and side-view mirrors to give a fuller picture of what's behind you. It is not intended as a replacement for your mirrors.
