Make driving in reverse easier and safer with one of these backup cameras.
There’s a reason that backup cameras have been required in new vehicles in the US since 2018 — they make it safer when you’re backing up. If your car was made before 2018, you may be feeling a little left out, but don’t fret. There are lots of backup cameras you can install yourself. All you need to do is attach it to the rear of your car (preferably as close to the center of the car as possible) and send the footage to a monitor attached to a console display, your dashboard or an inset screen on your rearview mirror, giving you better visibility with no straining to see your blindspots while driving your car in reverse.
Some backup cameras give you a simple rear view, while others use a wide angle or even a series of cameras to simulate a bird’s-eye view of your car and its surroundings (especially useful for a large vehicle). Some backup cameras have a sensor that produces a beeping sound when your car gets close to another object. Most will at least have a grid of lines that appears on the screen to provide context for how close you are to objects in view.
