A couple things to think about before purchasing rear view camera

The backup camera aims to hugely support task of standard car mirrors. That enables to see more and at better angle. Definitely, that raises the comfort of driving as you don’t have to deal with a blind area any longer. Moreover, proportion as well as distance of the view in standard rear view car mirrors might be distorted. Without a doubt, rear camera woulc improve driving safety. Some studies have already proved this. Thus I believe that it is useful to invest in such camera.

There are many different kinds of cameras. The quality can vary significantly. Personally, I have bought a bmw backup camera a while ago. In consequence, if you are owner of that brand, the choice is simpler – I would definitely recommend to look for any of bmw rear view camera. If you think about different one, below are important factors that you should keep in mind.

Firstly, the good angle is substantial! If you want to buy camera, you should choose this one that has a wide angle. Because of that, you would be able to see as much of the blind area as desirable. Otherwise, using the reverse camera would be rather worthless as 1 of its main purpose is allowing to see the blind area. Thus, I suggest not to purchase a camera that gets just 35 degrees as you would not be able to see that area. In such case, just easier and cheaper would be to see the degrees with the standard rear view mirrors.

More information – more, if saving on the camera seems to be a attractive solution for you, consider that again. Why? When you install low-cost camera in your car and observe the picture quality, you will certainly regret it. Please remember that quality of view significantly depends also on the display that you have got in your automobile. When you possess a really good display and 1 of the cheapest camera, the picture would still be rather unsatisfactory.

Last but not least, there are 2 different types of rear view cameras: inside and outside-mount ones. If you choose the inside one, it cannot be installed outside. Otherwise, it will become immediately destroyed. If you purchased the outside-mount camera, you should check twice this model weather-proof.
