About the Crux CUB-15
A sleek addition
A sleek addition
Looking for a backup cam worthy of your vehicle's sleek exterior? Crux's CUB-15 backup camera mounts cleanly on cars with a lip-style overhang above the license plate.
Everything you need to backup
Crux supplies a hole-saw attachment because intallation of this camera will require that you cut a hole in your vehicle to properly install it. They additionally include a flush-mounting system and 20' feet of cable to connect the camera to your receiver. Once installed, you'll gain a full color 170° view of what's behind you. Manual vertical adjustment makes it easy to get the view you're counting on. You also get parking lines for easier reversing into tight spaces. The camera's included video cable plugs into the standard composite video on any car stereo with a compatible video 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.

Rear-View Camera: The Crux CUB-15 rear-view camera can be installed in a variety of vehicles with an aftermarket in-dash multimedia or navigation receiver installed. Your aftermarket receiver must feature an integrated video monitor and a composite video camera input. The camera allows you to view what's behind you on your in-dash receiver's video monitor when you put your vehicle in reverse.
Note: The Crux CUB-15 rear-view camera is meant as a back-up aid only; never solely rely on the rear-view camera when backing-up. In addition to using the rear-view camera, always look behind you to make sure everything is clear when backing up your vehicle.
Image Sensor & Lens: The Crux CUB-15 rear-view camera features a CCD image sensor that offers 480 lines of resolution. The bright f/1.2 lens has 170° (horizontal) x 90° (vertical) viewing angle. The minimum illumination is 0.4 Lux.
Normal or Mirror Image: The Crux CUB-15 rear-view camera provides either a mirror or normal image. By default, the camera will display a mirror image. To get a normal image, you should cut the green wire loop on the camera's cable.
Park Assist Lines: The rear-view camera provides parking assist lines on the screen of your vehicle's in-dash aftermarket 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 3 color-coded horizontal lines that are used to distinguish how close you are getting to the end of the parking spot - Green (Clear), Yellow (Getting Close), Red (Very Close).
Note: You can remove the Park Assist Lines by cutting the white wire loop on the camera's cable.
Waterproof Housing: The Crux CUB-15 rear-view camera features a IP67 waterproof housing.
Flush-Mount Installation: You will need to drill a 7/8" (22.5mm) hole in your vehicle's rear exterior panel. The rear-view camera mounts in this opening and features an integrated spring-loaded mounting bracket which secures the camera in place.
Note: Make sure you have the camera orientated correctly so the image is displayed correctly on your receiver's screen.
Connections: The rear-view camera features an attached 4' power/signal cable and comes with a 20' video cable with attached 3' power/ground wires. At the end of the video cable is a male RCA composite video plug, which connects to the composite, rear-view camera input of your head unit. The power (red) & ground (black) wires will need to be hardwired. Power can be obtained from your vehicle's reverse light circuit or from the +12V accessory wire of your aftermarket stereo (if applicable). The ground will need to be connected to your vehicle's metal chassis.
