3rd brake light camera views
Posted 14 November 2017 - 01:54 PM
Hey there, I have quick question before I commit to buying one of these 3rd brake cameras,
First off, awesome photos!
Can I integrate this camera to the stock NV head unit? Or is this specifically an aftermarket piece that requires an aftermarket head unit?
I would like to remove my factory camera by the license plate, and hook up the camera signal to the original harness. Any idea if this works?
Thank you for your time

I can tell you that the Rear View Safety 3rd brake light camera is NOT suitable for a full time rear view. It's just barely adequate as a back up camera. If you adjust so you can see hitch ball, you see about 8 feet behind you. Thats on a high top. If you adjust all the way up, you can see maybe 15 feet, but nothing directly behind you.
Their 3 camera monitor with switcher is nice, you can put the switcher out of the way somewhere and only one cable to the windshield through the head liner.

I totally agree with Wezard's comment about the Rear View Safety Third brake light camera. It works but I am very disappointed on how far back it shows, as he stated, maybe 15-20 feet and that is it. Nothing any further back. I am trying to see if I can figure out a way to tilt the
camera further up to see more of what is behind me. It may work ok on a high top but on a standard van, it is very disappointing.
