Camera Installation
License Plate Mounting Instructions
1) Remove the rear license plate.
Examine the vehicle to determine the best way to run the power wires to
the reverse lights and the extension cable through the car.
The Camera can be mounted above or below the plate. (For surface
mounting with the included bracket, see the next section.) Determine the
mounting location that best suits your needs. Be sure to verify that your
installation plan complies with local laws and requirements. Most states
require that the state name, registration stickers, and license number are
not obstructed in any way.
Place the camera bracket behind the license plate and line up the holes.
Fasten the camera mounting bracket and the license plate to the vehicle
using the anti-theft screws provided. After installation of screws with the
tool provided, place the tool in the glove compartment or other safe place
for future use.
NOTE: If you decide to mount the camera at the bottom of the license
plate, you must first remove the screw that holds the camera to the
bracket and flip the camera over so the picture will not be displayed upside down.

Route the camera wiring into the vehicle. The wire can be run through an
existing grommet, behind a tail lamp, under the trunk molding, or if
necessary, through a 5/8 inch hole drilled near the vehicle’s rear license
plate. When choosing a wiring path, make sure the cable will not be
damaged or pinched, as this may cause a short circuit that is not
covered by the warranty. If drilling a hole, perform the following steps:
a) Acquire a 5/8 inch drill bit, rust preventive, all of which can be
purchased at a hardware store.
b) Check behind the intended drilling location before drilling to
verify that no wires or mechanisms can interfere with or be
damaged during drilling.
c) Check for interference with license plate lights and the hatch
release switch and/or mechanism.
d) Drill a 5/8 inch hole at the selected location.
e) Coat the edge of the hole with rust preventative.
f) Route the camera cable through the grommet and then through
the hole.
g) Insert the grommet in the hole to keep water from entering the
vehicle.
h) Adjust camera angle so that in standard reversing views you can
see a small piece of the bumper and then tighten the mounting
screws.

Surface Mounting Instructions
2) Find a suitable location on the vehicle where the bracket will not
interfere with any equipment or doors, or block the line of sight.
Verify that the planned mounting location is accessible from behind
and that you have access to route the wiring inside the vehicle. Be
sure that the mounting screws will not hit any wires or equipment
inside the vehicle.
3) Attach the surface mounting bracket to the vehicle with the hardware
included.
4) Route the camera wiring into the vehicle. The wire can be run through
an existing grommet, behind a tail lamp, under the trunk molding, or
if necessary, through a 5/8 inch hole drilled near the vehicle’s rear
license plate. When choosing a wiring path, make sure the cable
will not be damaged or pinched, as this may cause a short circuit
that is not covered by the warranty. If drilling a hole, perform the
following steps:
a) Acquire a 5/8 inch drill bit, rust preventive, and a 5/8 inch rubber
grommet, all of which can be purchased at a hardware store.
b) Check behind the intended drilling location before drilling to
verify that no wires or mechanisms can interfere with or be
damaged during drilling.
c) Check for interference with license plate lights and the hatch
release switch and/or mechanism.

screws.
Obtaining Reverse Power
1) Locate the reverse lamp in the tail light assembly.
Using the tap connector supplied, perform the following steps:
Place the un-stripped positive lead from the tail lamp in the run channel,
which runs completely through the connector.
Insert the un-stripped red power wire from the camera completely into the
other channel in the connector.
Make the connection between the wires by crimping down the metal
connector with a pair of pliers, making sure the metal is flush with the
plastic insulator.
Close the top plastic hinged cover until latched.
Attach the black wire to the ground (negative).
Repeat the above steps for the red wire.

Camera Wiring
If not using a ADVENT direct connect monitor please connect the red
power lead to the positive of your White color back up light and the Black
wire to vehicle ground. NOTE: If your vehicle has LED type backup
lights you may be required to use a relay to power the camera as the
vehicle circuit may not support the camera power. Connection to a low
current circuit can cause a bad picture, no picture, or even a vehicle
service lamp coming on. If you connect the camera to a ACC source
directly you will need to Cycle the ACC on and off in the programming
instructions in order to enter the configuration mode.
Use caution when connecting the power cable. Both ends look similar but
have different pin configurations. DO NOT FORCE TOGETHER.

Installing the dash mounted Control Button
1) Route the cable for the Control Button from the rear of the vehicle to
the desired mounting location. Be sure to not block any Air Bag or
safety device while routing the wire.Locate a suitable location for
easy access for the driver.
2) Clean the area thoroughly and allow to dry before attaching the
button.
3) Remove the backing paper from the adhesive pad mounted on the rear
of the control button and press it firmly into position.

Software Configuration Mode (Setup)
Preparation:
In order for the camera angles and viewing areas to be correct for the
vehicle it has been installed on, the camera must be set up correctly when
first installed.
You will be required to measure the vehicle width and the camera
mounting height from the center of the lens to the ground. If the camera is
not in the center of the vehicle you will need to measure the distance from
center of the vehicle to the lens to determine its offset.
14
To enter configuration mode:
1) Press your foot on the brake pedal and then hold the "+" button,
while placing the vehicle in reverse gear.
2) This will bring up the configuration menu on screen.
3) Press the “MODE” button to cycle between measurement units of
centimeters or inches.
4) The first setting is the Camera Height Setting.
Use the "+" or "-" buttons to set the correct height from the lens to the
ground. Press “ENTER” button to complete this setting, and go to the
next setting.

to complete this setting, and go to camera center offset setting.
6) Camera Offset Calibration.
The Offset setting is to adjust for Cameras that may be mounted off center
on a vehicle. This will insure the parking lines are correctly matched to
the vehicle position.
If the camera is 5 inches to the left side of the vehicle use the "+" to add 5
inches, if the camera is 5 inches to the right of the vehicle use the "-" to
subtract 5 inches. Press the "ENTER" button when this is completed.

press the "+" or "-" button to toggle through the choice. Press "ENTER"
when finished.
8) Camera Angle Setting
After you have installed the camera and adjust its angle and secured the
mounting bolts, the camera angle setting allows for fine tuning of the
viewing angle without having to physically change the camera angle.
The goal is to adjust the view so that a small portion of the bumper is
visible on screen (see image “B” below).
Use the "+" or "-" button to adjust this setting. Press once and wait to see
the change. When you have achieved the correct angle press the
"ENTER" button to finish.
