Easy to install and use
Take the guesswork out of reversing your car with this easy-to-install wireless colour camera kit.
The camera is powered by your vehicle's reverse lighting and the transmitter is built into the camera's housing. The 3.5-inch monitor can mount onto your windscreen and has the receiver built into the 12V accessory plug. The camera performs excellently in low-light-level conditions meaning you can park night and day with ease.

Installation will require drilling holes into the car's bodywork.
Please note that this kit is for cars and not other vehicles such as vans, lorries etc.
Due to the way the reversing lamps are powered this kit may well not be suitable for car models released since 2011. Please check the car's manual or with the car manufacturer if in any doubt. The device uses 2.4 GHz to transmit the signal, the same frequency used by Bluetooth. Switch Bluetooth off to optimise performance.


Rated 2 out of 5 by from Well, the important thing you need to know is the fact that this camera uses 2.4GHz to transmit the signal to the screen. Unfortunately, bluetooth devices also use 2.4GHz, so if you've got bluetooth hands free or music streaming in your car, then you either have to switch it off or accept a very poor signal on the screen. Without bluetooth it's not too bad, but the range isn't very good, and the signal doesn't pass through metal very well either. I fitted the kit to a Mitsubishi L200 pickup and ended up having to put the camera antenna along the outside of the tailgate and the screen on the rear screen in the cab to get a decent picture. Reliability isn't great either. The first one lasted a month, and the second one about 2 months although the camera was quite exposed so in might be better on the number plate where it's more shielded from the elements.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This kit is great! I would have to disagree with the other reviews to some extent. I drive a 1998 volvo V40 estate. I fitted it to the panel just above the number plate as the instructions said. This is no easy task in a V40! Anyway the camera is good quality and gives a good picture. The screen was faulty in my kit but was swapped within days, so all was good. I have the head unit with bluetooth and I use it with my phone. I have seen little interference on the monitor. I do seem to get more interference at night. I do sometimes get a blue screen but only for a second. The quality is good even by night, in very low light it almost goes to black and white. I would recommend to a friend and I have. A friend will be buying one soon. It is a good item for its price. The signal seems quite clear across the length of my V40 estate.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Buy a more expensive transmitter model or even a hard wired one that hopefully works without interfearance so you get a constant clear view of what your trying to look at. We took our back to the shop and swapped it once but the replacement is exactly the same. Paperwork suggests 30 meter signal we are struggling to get one over 3 meters

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Purchased this item as an addition to reversing sensors on my 6m A class Motorhome. Very easy to install and gives a good clear view to the rear of the vehicle. Did wonder if the existing wireless sensors would cause interference, but no problem currently. Good product for the price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A good idea spoiled by poor performance. With the camera mounted on the back of a Renault Trafic van, the signal is so weak the screen keeps going on and off. Not good when reversing

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very easy to fit, using on a larger vehicle, and have had no issues with signal. I put the car in reverse, give it half a second to connect and away I go! Very happy with it, buying another for my dad, as he seems to have developed an issue with walls behind him

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Originally got this as a B grade item only to find that it had been damaged. Upgraded to a new item and when that arrived the on/off switch was broken off. Poor quality item for the price.

I have a Vauxhall Astra GTC, would this system be compatible with my car?

Asked by: Olaf
Sorry but we cannot guarantee suitability for individual vehicles. You would need to check suitability based on the make marque and year of manufacture. We have provided an instruction guide on the product listing (see link) Which states the following The wireless camera in this kit requires a continuous supply of power to function. Certain models of cars manufactured after 2011 provide power to the rear reversing light by a pulsing current, rather than a continuous, steady current. This will disrupt the flow of current to the wireless camera and prevent its operation. If in any doubt, please check the car’s manual or with the car manufacturer for suitability. Generally this means any vehicle that utilises "CANBUS" electrical system would be unsuitable. If you are unsure the seek advice from an auto electrician, or perhaps go for a manufacturer factory fitted reversing kit.
