  1. Best backup camera Review by TechnoDave

    super-easy install, clear picture, no hassles! (Posted on 4/4/2016)

  2. Great customer service Review by The Taz

    The product was exactly as described.
    The item was out of stock so I called customer service to check when it would be in stock. The customer service representative went above and beyond and I had the product within 3 days. (Posted on 4/4/2016)

  3. Good Wireless Backup System Review by Braddik

    This is my first and only backup camera I have ever used. Overall it's a good system. I installed it in a 2010 Honda Pilot LX. Here are the pros and cons:
    *Edited after 5 months of use.

    - No video interference
    - Easy to hookup and install for the most part. The cable from the video camera to where it connects to the transmitter could have been longer as it was barely long enough to go up through the rear door and then back down into a side compartment in the rear of my pilot.
    - Screen mounting and hook up is super easy
    - Camera mounting easy but does require some drilling
    - Decent quality screen. Not HD by any means.
    - Wireless! Saves a ton of time not having to run wires to the front of your vehicle.

    - Short camera cable (see above)
    - More detailed instructions on how to attach to your reverse light wires would have been much appreciated. It basically just said "attach wires to reverse light wires. Black for negative and colored for positive". Never having done this before I basically had to watch youtube videos of people doing it to figure it out. Basically you are either going to need to go buy wire connector adaptors or twist them together using wire nuts.
    - The reverse guide lines in the screen if you turn on are pretty inaccurate. They appear to just be arbitrary lines and no way to really calibrate

    Overall though I feel it's a good camera system made of good quality. It seems much better than any other wireless systems out there. Most appear to be super cheap. It took me about 3-4 hours to hook this up. This time is mainly due to me having to take off so many interior panels and being inexperienced. While a good camera backup system, I have changed my rating from 5 to 4 stars. The lower resolution screen, inaccurate guide lines, and short wiring cables keeps it from reaching 5 stars. It will show you what's behind the car, but don't use it to accurately and precisely parallel park in tight quarters. (Posted on 4/4/2016)

  4. This one is top of the line Review by Geo

    This back up camera is worth the price paid. Because the camera is sealed from water and dust I will not have to worry about another costly reinstall. The monitor doesn't have to be on constantly but comes on from standby when car is shifted into reverse. Although I had it professionally installed, it is easily done by an amateur. (Posted on 4/4/2016)

  5. What I needed for blind spot Review by Henry

    i used it as a blind spot camera on my ford van e250. i use the side mirror and the camera,wired the camera to work off cig lighter.stays on all the time,until i unplug at night. its like having someone ride shotgun for you in the passenger seat. (Posted on 4/4/2016)

  6. Fair Product Review by Lonewolfnpickens

    The camera took about 1.5 hour to set-up, the hardest part was finding the right place to mount the camera on my Ram 1500 truck, I wanted to get a clear image of my trailer hitch to help when connecting my truck to my camper, it took a few minute to find the sweet spot I was looking for, it would have been nice if I had someone to help me one inside the truck looking at the monitor and one moving the camera around, the wiring was a breeze no big problem here. The system connected just as soon as I put the truck in reverse no problems here. The biggest problem is with the suction cup mount for the Monitor it is horrible, I got everything set up and working good and about 1 hour later the monitor fell off the windshield, the suction cup will not hold the monitor in place and it was only about 70 deg F. I haven't gotten to put the camera through areal good test yet due to not being able to keep the monitor connected to the windshield, but the camera and monitor seem to work ok, but the company needs to work on a different mounting system! I am trying to come up with a new mounting bracket that will work! (Posted on 4/4/2016)

  7. Good, But Review by Melvin Utley

    The camera works fine, is easy to install and use. The problem is the mount. It won't stay suctioned to the windshield in spite of cleaning and whatever else I could think of. (Posted on 4/4/2016)

  8. Decited to try their unit with the built in antenna Review by Robert Condra

    Decided to try their unit with the built in antenna on both the camera and monitor. Could not seem to keep this unit paired continuously (Posted on 4/4/2016)

  9. The suction cup that holds the device to the window is terrible Review by Lindell Weaver

    The image quality is ok. The suction cup that holds the device to the window is terrible...it won't hold the unit overnight, and the vehicle is located in a heated garage. When you put the transmission in reverse, this unit takes longer to visualize in back of the car than the Peak which sales for a fraction of the cost of this unit. However, the image quality is better than the Peak brand. I would have preferred an option of hard-wiring the TV rather than the the 12 volt plug in adapter. I think the company could ask you which one you want upon ordering or provide both. (Posted on 4/4/2016)

  10. Five Stars Review by Otto

    Works great on my teardrop trailer (Posted on 4/4/2016)

Questions on Wireless Backup Camera System with Cigarette Lighter Adaptor

  • From Dave at 5/4/2014 9:20 PM
    • Can this camera remain on so to act like a rear view mirror?
    • Yes. If you wire the camera to get constant power it will display constantly on the monitor. If you wire it to backup power that is when it will display on the monitor only when the vehicle is in reverse.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From Robert at 8/11/2014 4:53 PM
    • Does this camera have grid lines?
    • It most definitely does have grid lines and they can be turned on or off from the menu on the monitor.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From Lucy at 8/15/2014 5:05 PM
    • If this is "wirelesss" why do i have to wire it to power source, doesn't the cigarette lighter connection give it power
    • The cigarette lighter connection gives power only to the monitor. The camera still does need power for itself. The wireless connection allows the camera and monitor to connect to each other wirelessly but does not allow one to power the other.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From Alan at 9/7/2014 1:40 PM
    • Does the camera come in a magnetic mount version?

      Can the camera be mounted on a boat trailer and be submersed in water occasionally?
    • The only camera we have that mounts magnetically is the Hitch Camera - RVS-83112. That camera though is designed specifically for hitching.

      The camera can most definitely be mounted on a boat trailer and can be submersed in water. It has an IP68 rating which means that it actually can be submersed in water for hours at a time.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From Kevin at 9/30/2014 3:29 PM
    • Is the wireless 2.4g, and if so, how much interference can we expect from phones, bluetooth, etc. Everything on the planet seems to operate at 2.4g.
    • The wireless connection is 2.4GHz however you shouldn't experience any interference. It uses technology similar to Bluetooth which will give you a fixed wireless signal and not much chance for interference.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From Ken at 10/4/2014 1:53 PM
    • Is the transmitter weatherproof? Can it be mounted behind the bumper or on the undercarriage of the vehicle.
    • The transmitter is not weatherproof and must be mounted in a waterproof area. A popular place to mount it is in the vehicle's brake light housing.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From Nivlem at 10/8/2014 2:16 AM
    • Where can I mount the transmitter in my Tacoma pick up truck?
    • A popular mounting position for the transmitter in a pick up truck is in the brake light housing.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From Kevin at 11/15/2014 9:40 PM
    • I have a very long horse trailer and would like to mount a camera near the front but looking down the left and right sides of the trailer. Do you have an option for multiple cameras? (2 or possibly 3 cameras)
    • This system only allows for one camera connected. For a wireless system that allows for multiple cameras, take a look at the RVS-CW-CAM.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From Rick at 1/20/2015 6:00 PM
    • I am interested in the 091406 Camera. I presently have a different make already mounted on the back of a 38' 5th wheel RV, however the reception is so poor I am looking for something better. My concern is reception with the 091406 Camera. The transmitter would have to reside inside the RV plus it being 38 feet from the front plus another 12 feet to reach the monitor sitting on top of the pickup's dash. That is 50 feet of transmission thru two metal walls.
    • You can be confident with the RVS-091406 even at such a distance. We guarantee that you won't experience interference up to 70ft even going through objects! We also have a 30 day no-question return policy so that if for whatever reason you do experience issues, the system can be returned for a full refund.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From Matt at 2/6/2015 11:58 AM
    • Where would I mount the camera on a 2003 Navigator?
    • The camera is designed to mount upside down on top of the license plate. There should be a slight protrusion there which works well to mount the camera to.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From Karen at 2/6/2015 3:54 PM
    • Can I connect the wireless transmitter to my kenwood touchscreen car stereo, (it's equipped for a backup camera) instead of using the supplied monitor?
    • No, you won't be able to do this. It is a wireless system and the camera therefore will only work with its monitor.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From David at 4/14/2015 2:49 PM
    • Is there anywhere else you can mount the transmitter on a Ram 1500 4x4 other than the brake light housing, could you build a water proof box to place the transmitter in it and mount the box somewhere else other than the light housing?
    • Absolutely. The transmitter can be mounted in any waterproof area. The brake light housing is just a suggestion...
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From Dave at 6/6/2015 11:24 PM
    • Is the camera CCD or CMOS.
    • It's a new type of CMOS sensor that's called an MT9V136 sensor.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From Donald Martin at 7/16/2015 7:45 PM
    • Where can I mount the camera on a chevrolet silverado pickup ?
    • There usually is room right on top of the license plate where this camera can mount. If you think that may not work, take a look at the RVS-405 license plate bracket. This bracket allows you to mount the camera from this system together with the license plate.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From Sean at 7/20/2015 9:15 PM
    • Does this system also work with the iphone app GoVue? Can you use the monitor or the iphone app?
    • No, unfortunately this is not compatible with the GoVue app. This is a wireless system which uses a digital wireless connection while the GoVue system uses WiFi. The only monitor that will be compatible is the one that comes with the system.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From Randy stedman at 11/4/2015 2:36 AM
    • What is the response time for the image to appear on the monitor once the car is put into reverse. I expect it's 2 seconds or less, but how much less?
    • It's about one second usually even less than that. The response time is very quick.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From Jimmy at 1/4/2016 5:34 PM
    • Would the camera transmitter need to be weather protected on a pickup truck (2002 F-150), which of course would not have a car trunk to place it in? Would it be sufficient to tie the transmitter it up out of the way under the pickup bed in weatherproof wrapping of some sort?
    • The transmitter is not waterproof and therefore does need to be in a waterproof area. It can be out of the way in a waterproof wrapping as long as liquid doesn't get to it at all. Another place you can put it is in the brake light housing. The area is waterproof and should be easy to access.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From John at 1/5/2016 7:57 PM
    • Can this be used on a 2012 Corvette coupe? Where would be the best place for the transmitter?
    • It will be perfect for your vehicle and you can mount the transmitter anywhere inside the back of the car. It just needs to be in a waterproof area.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From ron at 2/7/2016 12:33 PM
    • i got a 2014 Equinox would the transmitter fit in the brake light housing and how is it mounted? Are there any illustrations on where to run the other line from the monitor? thanks
    • The transmitter will fit in the brake light housing and it mounts with an adhesive pad. The monitor simply plugs right into the cigarette lighter port in the vehicle.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From Anthony at 5/1/2016 9:06 AM
    • I have two different trailers. Can I buy the kit with a second transmitter and camera? I assume I would have to run the pairing process each time I switched between trailers.
    • Yes, you can get a second camera/transmitter and yes you would need to repair for each switch.

      Give us a call at (800) 764-1028 to place an order like this.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From Dick at 6/11/2016 4:36 PM
    • I have a 37 foot 5th wheel and a Silverado truck. The total range will be about 42 feet. Does the transmitter support this range?
    • Yes, the transmitter will support distances up to 70ft.

      One thing to note: if your vehicle is made of aluminum, it may cause issues with the transmission. Otherwise, you'll be fine at that distance.
