what is a car rear camera?how can we install it?

a rear camera is a little device in car dvd player.All of the Car DVD player support the rear camera input and support automatically rear view when the car turn to reverse.

and the following article is the details of how to install it:


First of all,you should make a decision where you want to set up the rear-view camera. Most of driving put them in the plastic bumper so they don't have to drill into the car's sheet metal.But for some special rear camera,it is no need to drill a hole of the bumper,because they are design for the special car,it fit to the back light exactly,such as the Rear camera Suzuki Swift CM036,it will be very good look and hidden as original after installation.But if you can not sure about which oen to set up to your vehicle,It does not matter,the rear camera cm110 or Car Rear Camera License plate cm550 will be ok.

more over,drill a hole for the camera. Check the Installation Guide ( Mounting Instructions ) to see what size will suit you. make sure that the hole is not too large or the camera will fall out.

Place the camera in the hole using the rubber grommet supplied with the camera. Make sure the camera and grommet are tight.

Attach the cable from the camera to a wireless backup lights on your vehicle.  You'll have to splice the wires together. Use wire cutters to cut the wires, leaving enough excess wire to connect. Strip the ends of the wire to expose the bare wire using wire strippers. Splice the wires together using a two-into-one connector. This will give the rear-view camera power when you put the vehicle in reverse.Check this photos carefully if you are not sure:
