Therefore, whenever you clean your car, you should clean the lens of the camera as well so that the camera gives you with the clear view of the back.
The reversing camera kit has given the new meaning to the rear mirror. It provides the functionality of the rear mirror but in much more advanced, efficient and secure way. The cars which have the reversing cameras kits still have the rear mirror in these, just in case, if due to some reason the reversing camera is not working and the reversing camera only turns on when the car is in reverse mode. For other times, when the driver needs to look back, he still makes use of the rear mirror. Many people take out the rear mirror when they install the reversing camera kit but it is not recommended.
The monitor of the reversing camera kit is large enough so that you could easily see the rear of the car. These monitors are available in different sizes and the customer can have anyone of his own choice but since the monitor also needs to be placed on the dashboard therefore it is advised that it must not be big enough so that it congests the place but it must be sufficiently wide enough to give the clear vivid view.
However, it is obvious in most of the kits that these will turn on automatically when the car switches to reverse gear. Make sure that this is the functionality of the reversing camera kit you can opt the dash cam. If there is some model which needs to be powered on manually. Do not go for this model. There are both kinds of the kits, one with the wires and other without. The installation of these vary from one and another.
