Crux CUL-09 Lip-Mount Rear-view Camera
Offer updated on 8/9/2022
Look back with confidence Crux's CUL-09 backup camera will mount nicely on most cars, and Crux provides a 23-foot cable to connect the camera to your receiver. Once installed, you'll gain a full color 170 degrees view of what's behind you. You also get parking lines for easier reversing into tight spaces. And the Crux CUL-09 is a match for any car stereo with a standard composite video input and viewing screen. Installing this camera yourself? Here's what you should know. What does it do? Unless otherwise noted, a backup camera is only intended for use backing up your vehicle. (If you require a front-view or constant rear-view camera, check for that capability.) What tools and supplies will I need? A panel tool, a wire cutter/stripper, a soldering iron, and a rosin-core solder with heat shrink tubing are recommended, along with whatever tools are needed to remove the radio from the dash. How much wiring is required? Wiring instructions vary from camera to camera. Some cameras have power wiring that can only be connected near the radio. Others let you power the camera at compatible reverse lights. In all cases, the camera must be wired for power and ground, the camera's video output must be connected to the radio/monitor, and the radio/monitor must be connected to a reverse trigger in your vehicle. Some radio replacement interfaces supply a reverse trigger wire for the radio -- using that wire to power your camera will damage the interface. Will the included video cable be long enough? You'll need to route the camera's video cable from its mounting location outside your vehicle into your vehicle's cabin and all the way to the screen in the dash. This often requires drilling a small hole in your vehicle or filing some metal and or plastic. You'll also need to estimate the length of cable needed to run from the camera to the dash, which will not be a straight shot. Each camera's cable length is listed.
