About the Brandmotion 9002-7601
If you're looking for an affordable back-up solution, Brandmotion's tiny 9002-7601 backup camera gives you a plentiful 170° view of what's behind you. With 420 TV lines, you'll get a crisp picture, even when it's dark outside, and it's a match for any car stereo with a standard composite video input and viewing screen.
Brandmotion also gives you two ways to mount it: a universal license plate adapter or an adhesive-backed flush-mount. The package includes a 19-foot extension video cable that runs from the camera to the video screen up front, so it'll work in many larger vehicles.
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.

Universal Camera Kit: The BrandMotion Universal Camera Kit (9002-7601) allows you to add a camera to almost any vehicle with an aftermarket head unit that features a video monitor and composite video rear-view camera input. This universal kit includes a camera, license plate and surface mounting brackets, plus cables.
Note: This camera kit is meant as a driving aid only; never solely rely on the camera while driving. In addition to using the camera, always physically check to make sure everything is clear around your vehicle.
Composite Video Output: The BrandMotion Universal Camera Kit (9002-7601) is equipped with a composite video jack which allows it to connect to most aftermarket in-dash multimedia receivers with an integrated monitor and composite video camera input.
CMOS Image Sensor & Wide-Angle Lens: The camera features a CMOS images sensor that delivers 648 x 488 lines of resolution, as well as a wide-angle lens that produces a 170° wide viewing angle. The camera has a low-light lux rating of 0.5 for driving at night.
Mirror or Normal Image: The camera can display a "Mirror" or "Normal" image on your aftermarket monitor, so it can be used as a front or rear view camera. By default, it will display a Mirror image. In order to display a Normal image, you will need to cut the white loop-wire on the camera's attached cable.
Park Assist Lines: The backup camera provides parking assist lines on the screen of your aftermarket display monitor. These parking lines are there to assist you when backing up into a parking space. There are two vertical lines which help you judge the left and right edges of the parking space and your vehicle. There are also 4 color-coded horizontal lines that are used to distinguish how close you are getting to the end of the parking spot - Green (Clear), Orange (Getting Close), Yellow (Very Close), and Red (Stop).
Note: The parking lines are Off by default. You can turn the parking lines On by cutting the green loop-wire on the camera's attached cable.
Waterproof Housing: The Crux camera features a IP67-68 waterproof housing.
Mounting Options: The backup camera can be installed behind the license plate or on a flat vehicle surface with minimal surface area requirements, using the included brackets. This camera kit will fit practically any vehicle with a license plate when using the license plate bracket. When using the small mount bracket the minimum surface required is 1.5" (w) x 0.75" (d). When using parking lines, it is recommended to mount the camera on the centerline of the vehicle.
Power & Ground: The camera's power (red) & ground (black) wires will need to be hardwired inside the vehicle. Power can be obtained from your vehicle's reverse light circuit or from the reverse gear wire of your aftermarket stereo (if applicable). The ground will need to connected to your vehicle's metal chassis.
