The Wireless Camera and Monitor,when used as described, will improve your ability to
see behind your car,truck,RV,ormini-van.We have taken numerous measures in
quality control to ensure that your product arrives in top condition,and will perform to
your satisfaction.
Before You Install
Automotive video equipment installations can be difficult at times, even to the most
experienced of installation technicians. If you are not confident working with 12 volt DC
vehicle wiring, removing and reinstalling interior panels, carpeting, dashboards or other
components of your vehicle, contact the vehicle’s manufacturer, or consider having the
Wireless Camera and Monitor professionally installed.
This device, as well as all other wireless devices, may be subject to interference.
Interference may be caused by cell phones, Bluetooth headsets, Wi-FI routers,
power lines and other various electrical equipment, etc.

Installation
These instructions do not apply to all vehicles. They are only meant as a general guide
due to the number of different makes & models.
For vehicle specific questions contact your vehicle’s manufacturer.
MONITOR INSTALLATION
When choosing a location to mount the monitor, make sure the monitor is in an area that will not
obstruct your vision while driving.
Choose a Location and Install Power Cable
1. Temporarily place the monitor in the location that you have chosen
2. Route the power cable to the vehicle’s cigarette lighter socket/12V
power outlet. The cable must not interfere with the safe operation
of the vehicle.
Mounting the Monitor
Before mounting the monitor, clean the mounting surface well.
1. Position the suction mount to the smooth surface which suits your
requirement.
2. Press the suction cap against the smooth surface such as
windshield or dashboard.
3. Press the lock down to attach and fix the mount to the surface.
4. Snap in the monitor to the suction mount.
5. Adjust the mounting arms to suit your view angle to the monitor
and tighten the screws on the mount to fix the position.
To maximize the effectiveness of the suction mount, it is recommended that the application be
performed under the following conditions:
Surface temperature should be between 70oF and 100 oF (21 oC and 38 oC).
Application below 50 oF!(10 oC) should be avoided.
Application should not occur in direct sunlight.
Mounting should be protected from exposure to direct sunlight for a period of 24 hours.
NOTE: UNDER EXTREME BRIGHT LIGHT CONDITIONS, THE SCREEN IMAGE MAY TAKE A
FEW SECONDS TO STABLIZE. PLEASE WAIT UNTIL THE IMAGE HAS STABLIZED BEFORE
BACKING UP.
MONITOR POWER CONNECTION
Use the 12 Volt cigarette lighter adaptor plugged into the vehicle’s cigarette lighter
socket.
Power Cable with 12 Volt Cigarette Lighter Adaptor
1. Insert the small 12 Volt DC plug of the power cable into the right side of the monitor.
2. Plug the 12 Volt cigarette lighter adaptor into the vehicle’s cigarette lighter socket.

CAMERA INSTALLATION
You can mount the camera using the supplied double side adhesive tape.
Ensure the camera viewing is not obstructed.
1. Remove one of the cover papers of double side adhesive tape, stick to the camera mount
bracket front side.
2. Then remove the other side cover paper of adhesive tape, stick the camera to the back of
license plate.
3. Choose a routing path for the camera’s power cable through the vehicle’s body to the reverse
light circuit. If in doubt, seek professional installation assistance.
4. Some vehicles may have a hole to pass the wire through. For example, the location of the
license plate light is mounted, or you can drill a hole close to the power cable that will attach
to the camera. Once you have determined where the cable will enter the vehicle’s trunk,
remove the license plate with camera. If you are able to use an existing opening or hole,
skip the next two steps.
5. If you are going to drill a hole, choose a location as close to the camera where the power
cable comes out. Before you drill a hole you MUST CHECK WHAT IS BEHIND THE
DRILLING LOCATION. If there are any vehicle components, like electrical parts or fuel
system components behind the drilling location, you must take precaution not to damage
them. Remove the license plate and camera before drilling.
6. After you have drilled a half inch (1/2”) hole, pass the camera wire connector through the hole
into the vehicle and place the grommet in the hole around the camera wire. You must use the
grommet to prevent the metal edge of the hole from cutting the camera cable.
7. Mount the transmitter box inside the trunk. Connect the camera cable and the power cable to
the transmitter box.
8. Find the vehicle’s reverse lights. Turn the vehicle’s ignition key to the accessory position,
engage the parking brake and put the car in reverse. Look at the vehicle’s tail lights to see
where the reverse white lights are located.
To locate the reverse light’s 12V+ wire, it is necessary to access to the rear part of the
vehicle’s tail light.
For help locating the vehicle’s reverse light circuit, contact your vehicle’s manufacturer for
vehicle specific wiring diagrams.

9. Once you have located the reverse light circuit, you need to route the power cable supplied to
that location. Fasten the power cable securely to prevent it from being caught on any vehicle
component like the trunk hinge. Never route the cable on the outside of the vehicle.
10. Locate reverse light socket and remove light bulb. There are two wires connected to the
reverse light sockets on most vehicles. Usually the negative wire is black and the positive
wire is a colored wire. If you are uncertain about the wiring, use a 12 volt multimeter
(available at most auto parts stores) to determine which wire is positive. Follow the
manufacturer’s instructions for the safe use of the multimeter.
11. After determining which wire is the positive and which is the negative, turn off the ignition key,
then remove the battery’s negative cable.
12. Splice the red wire using the supplied wire clamp to the reverse light’s positive (+) wire. Use a
set of slip joint pliers to squeeze the METAL BLADE and insure good connection of both
wires.
Insert the existing wire
to be tapped to the clamp.
Insert the wire to be
attached to the clamp.

then close lock

13. You may not need to use the wire clamp. The power cable can be wired directly to the reverse
light circuit by stripping the reverse light wires then twisting the camera wires to the exposed
reverse light wires. Once connected, wrap with electrical tape. Do not attempt this if you
are not knowledgeable with electrical installation practices. If in doubt, seek professional
installation assistance.
14. Next splice the black wire of the transmitter box’s power cable to the reverse light’s negative
(-) wire or ground.
15. Replace the reverse light bulb and re-install the light socket. Secure all the wires with cable
ties or electrical tape. Reattach the negative battery cable to the battery afterwards.
