Features

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.

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 connecting together the two exposed white wires 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.

A
I have a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited and cannot use a license plate backup camera. The person who installed the CarPlay on my 2014 suggested that this was a good substitute, a small hole can be drilled in the wheel cover and the camera can be inconspicuously installed so that it is flush with the wheel cover.

What temperatures is this camera rated to?
[ Paul  Apr 09, 2020 ]
1 answer
A
We don't have that spec measured and it is not listed in the manufacturers specs either. It has a 1 year warranty, so as long as it's mounted correct, it should be covered at least that long.
[ Cosmo  Apr 25, 2020 ]  Staff

Q
Can you disable parking lines if your aftermarket stereo already has them?
[ RyanH  Feb 07, 2020 ]
1 answer
A
Yes, the parking lines are selectable. You can remove the park assist lines by connecting together the two exposed white wires on the camera's cable.
[ Cosmo  Feb 20, 2020 ]  Staff
Q
How does it know when your in reverse?
[ Lenny  Sep 04, 2019 ]

A
Camera powers up by your reverse lights and connect the wire on unit to camera power lead wire and that triggers only the screen to change to display image.
[ Jim  Sep 06, 2019 ]
A
The reverse light signal to your head unit.
[ Frank  Sep 05, 2019 ]
A
This is just a camera that would need to be connected to compatible head unit. The head unit will determine when to show camera image when in reverse.

That I don't no.. my buddy got the tail gat latch with camera hole..
[ Randy  Aug 27, 2019 ]
A
I had to mount mine on the plastic part of the center bumper. Only spot that made sense. Also, the included hole saw is too small, you'll have to widen the hole a little to get the camera to fit.

Hi Ken! The Crux CUB-15 will come with the bit needed to drill a 7/8" (22.5mm) hole. Chat with an Advisor online or by phone at 1-800-324-9695, they will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
[ Jess  Jul 16, 2019 ]  Staff
Q
Can this camera be mounted off center? Like to one side of the license plate? Or does it have to be centered?
[ PAUL  Mar 23, 2019 ]
4 answers
A
we mounted it in the center of the bumper...I see no reason why you could not install it off-center. however, it gives you lane indicators so if you are off center the lane information might be a bit off. The camera direction is adjustable because it is in an eyeball socket so you might be able to adjust it to minimize the off center effect?
[ JAMES P  Mar 23, 2019 ]
A
Although I mounted mine in the center, I see no reason why it wouldn't work off center. if you were trailering and wanted to the line the hitch up, you'd probably want it centered but otherwise should work fine next to the license plate. Good luck
[ Christopher  Mar 23, 2019 ]
A
For best view I would recommend center mount, but could be used off center.
[ John  Mar 23, 2019 ]
A
It can be mounted anywhere you want to drill a hole. It does not have any mounting brackets or screws, but is flush mounted to your vehicle for a more stock or professional appearance. It includes the proper drill bit for mounting as well
[ MASON  Mar 23, 2019 ]
Q
I just bought the bullet backup camera, installed it to my pioneer AVH110BT, because I didn't want a bulky camera. I'm seeing everything that is on the left on the right, and when I move it, it's all backwards. I dont want to buy a new head unit because of cost, how can I get the camera to flip the image?
[ Mitch  Feb 21, 2019 ]
5 answers
A
I think you might need to cut a jumper wire to flip the image, check the instructions.
[ Erik  Feb 25, 2019 ]
A
There is a reverse image jumper wire in the harness near the camera that you can cut.
[ Daniel  Feb 25, 2019 ]
A
I can't remember exactly how this works but that was how mine was when I got it as well. There should have been a little piece of paper that came with the camera. There should be 4 little wires separated from the rest. 2 of them control the guidelines the other 2 control the image. When you change them (pull them apart or put them together) It will flip the picture. I believe the ones that flip the image are blue and the grid lines are white.
[ Alex  Feb 25, 2019 ]
A
Hi Mitch, you should be able to flip the image horizontally by cutting the blue wire -- the details are in the owner's manual PDF linked from the Overview tab on Crutchfield. Please note that you can also rotate the camera lens assembly within the housing to adjust the angle and orientation of the image. Good luck!
[ Benjamin  Feb 25, 2019 ]
A
There is a wire about a foot away from the camera that has a silver tag on it that says cut for reverse image if you cut this wire it reverses the image
[ Jodie  Feb 25, 2019 ]
Q
It is not clear to me what is the proper orientation of the camera. Should the grooved portion of the outer lip be facing up if you want to use this as a reverse camera?
[ Moose  Feb 12, 2019 ]
4 answers
A
The camera is adjustable after installing so it doesn't really matter. Put the grooves however they look better on your vehicle and then rotate the camera for the best view.
[ Adrian  Feb 14, 2019 ]
A
The camera is adjustable
[ Chris  Feb 14, 2019 ]
A
On mine, the groove is at the bottom (6 O'clock). The camera can be moved around, but to look at the ground, it sits into that groove to keep it from moving around at all. The groove also allows it to look downward a little bit more to see the ground behind you.
[ Trenton  Feb 14, 2019 ]
A
it does not matter ounce u get it mounted u can turn it how u need for it to work to ur preference . It stays realy well in its place wife has had hers on her jeep for about a year now no issues. And she is pretty rough on her jeep.
[ Michael  Feb 12, 2019 ]

No
[ J  Dec 27, 2018 ]
A
There is no license plate cover included.
[ Holly  Dec 26, 2018 ]
A
It is a stand alone so it doesnt come with a license plate. This model will be more suitable for installation on the front or rear bumper.
[ Armando J. Mene  Dec 26, 2018 ]
Q
Can I use this on a stock Jeep Wrangler touch screen radio?
[ Jim  Nov 30, 2018 ]
1 answer
A
You will want to contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat to discuss compatibility with your factory system. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and see if this will integrate. If it does not, then they will also be able to discuss other options with you.

[ Ben  Aug 28, 2018 ]
4 answers
A
20 ft
[ Dean  Aug 31, 2018 ]
A
Couldn't tell you the exact length, but I can say that I had enough cable to run from my tailgate handle, through the tailgate, the underside of an 8 ft. bed plus screw cab, and up to the radio. It was just enough, but it did make it. And, it works perfect. I couldn't be happier the picture.
[ Adrian  Aug 31, 2018 ]
A
Well I can't honestly answer that. I got a 4 door Toyota. It went frm tailgate latch over to the tail light along the frame up to firewall An to my radio. Had 6in to spare. Wud be nice if it was alil longer.. camera does wrk good tho
[ Randy  Aug 30, 2018 ]

It comes with the whole saw that u need.. but it's a lil small so u will have to die grind it out a lil bit
[ Randy  Apr 06, 2018 ]
Q
I have a 2001 F150. I think there is room in the tailgate near the handle to install the camera.Will this fit any receiver with a display? is that aspect of the installation universal?
[ Peter  Nov 08, 2017 ]
1 answer
A
I just finished installing this camera. I connected it to a 10 year old Kenwood monitor and it worked great. As long as your monitor has an RCA video input, it should work. It was very easy to install. It comes with a hole saw but I did have to widen the hole a little more before it would fit. It doesn't require much space to mount it.
