Safely back up your vehicle with the help of this Metra BBBPC back-up camera, which delivers a 170° viewing angle to help you see obstacles behind you. The camera mounts easily above your vehicle's license plate for simple installation.

Worst camera ever. Bought this after reading pretty decent reviews. Installed it at night and when it turned on the picture quality was horrible. I couldn't make out anything at night. The daylight picture was so so. I immediately returned it the next day and got the audiovox mini bullet camera. That camera had much better hardware and the quality of the picture is at lease 4 times better. Please trust me and don't by this camera. The audiovox mini bullet is the same price.

Good option to add backup camera
Posted by: RickRus from: RIchmond,Texas on
Backup camera was easy to mount with the built in license plate frame. Its perfect for a pickup truck, where the necessary wires are present in the wiring harness for the trailer lights. The power wires for this camera are very small and delicate. Extreme care is needed to get a good connection and weather seal everything that is connected at the back of the vehicle. Picture quality is pretty good in daylight - and fair at night with the reverse lights illuminating the area. The camera comes with colored grid lines to help judge distance - but these can be turned off by cutting one of the really thin wires on the camera end of the cable.

Does the job
Posted by: MingoPants from: Kennewick, WA on
It was a 'this is the only option' purchase and wished I would have done more research. When I purchased my Kenwood DDX470 the Best Buy Associate said this is the only one we carry, which isn't the whole truth. That may have been the only one they had in stock at the time but I search the inventory online and the store in shop at does carry others. Regardless, the set up was fairly simple but the instructions were horrible. You definitely need to know about positive and negative currents to understand how to change the view of the camera. The picture quality is okay but horrible at night to the point of almost useless. I only discovered this after I spent a couple hours installing it.

Not a bad camera for the price, but the problem is that it doesn't work well with ambient (brake) lights, and you can't turn off the 'zone' detection.

I love that this camera is in color. We have it on all the time so we can see when we are hauling the camper. We can see how close cars get to us at stop lights. Best thing is I can see everything behind me when backing up.
