See where you're headed (in reverse)
Improve your parking lot skills. Boyo's VTL17IRTJ all-weather backup cam will have you parallel parking like a pro, thanks to active parking lines that bend to match your trajectory. Boyo makes installation more straightforward by mounting this cam onto a sturdy strap that stealthily attaches behind any license plate. Once you power the camera and run the included video cable to the screen in your dash, you'll see a 170º wide-angle view when you're backing up your vehicle. Selectable reverse image and parking lines make this a perfect choice if you want a front camera.
Enhanced infrared night vision and more
Boyo builds in powerful IR lights to ensure the best possible picture when light is limited. You'll get a good look behind you, even in the darkest parking garage.
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.

Front or Backup Camera: The Boyo VTL17IRTJ can be used as a backup camera with a mirror image or front camera with a normal image. To use as a front camera, you'll need to cut the white wire loop labeled "mirror image/non-mirror switch".
Note: The Boyo VTL17IRTJ 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/ Built-in IR(s): The Boyo VTL17IRTJ backup camera is equipped with a CMOS image sensor with a 720 (h) x 480 (v) resolution for high quality video. Integrated IR(s) on either side of the camera provide excellent visibility at night.
Wide Viewing Angle + Angle Adjustment: The VTL17IRTJ backup camera offers a 170° wide viewing angle (diagonal), 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 VTL17IRTJ 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 cut the blue wire loop labeled "parking lines on/off".
Waterproof (IP67): The Boyo VTL17IRTJ 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 camera has a composite video output (RCA via the included adapter) 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 composite video cable is 30'.
Power & Ground: The 30' power wire & 6' ground wire will need to be hardwired. Power can be obtained from your vehicle's reverse light circuit or from the reverse gear wire of your aftermarket stereo (if applicable). The ground will need to be connected to your vehicle's metal chassis.
Mounting Options: The Boyo VTL17IRTJ 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.
- The Boyo VTL17IRTJ 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 VTL17IRTJ 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.
