Know what's behind you when you back up

This sleek, slim Boyo backup camera gives you a great view of what's behind your vehicle, day or night. It offers plenty of cool features and it's housed in a durable zinc metal bar that won't obscure your license plate.

Extra help from active parking lines

With this camera, you won't just see where you're going, you'll also get help getting there. The active parking lines will curve with you as you steer your vehicle backwards, so you'll have an extra sense of security in crowded parking lots.

Get the view you want

The camera is mounted on an up/down swivel, so you can get exactly the picture you want. With a CMOS image sensor, a wide 170° viewing angle, and lens distortion correction, you'll get a crisp, clear view of what's back there. The automatic white balance adjuster is a big help in bright sunlight and the frame also has built-in LED lights that really help out at night. The camera sports an IP67 waterproof rating, so you can count on it even when the weather gets nasty.

Available in Black or Chrome.

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.

Product Research


Overview: The Boyo VTL402TJS short bar-type license plate mounted camera can provide a wide 170˚ diagonal view from the rear of your vehicle. The camera includes built-in selectable LEDs for nighttime illumination while backing up, as well as selectable trajectory parking lines. The VTL402TJS provides a composite video output, allowing it to be used with most aftermarket screens and mobile video monitors (sold separately).

Zinc Alloy Housing: The VTL402TJS's short bar-type bracket is made from zinc alloy metal and covered in a chrome finish with a scratch-resistant coating. The camera's waterproof (IP68) housing is made from the same long-lasting, durable material.

Rear View Camera: The VTL402TJS rear view camera features a highly sensitive 1/4" color CMOS image sensor with 600 TV lines (640 horizontal x 480 vertical) for true color reproduction and clear picture quality. The camera features a wide-angle lens with a 170° diagonal viewing angle providing an excellent field of vision behind your vehicle. The rear view camera can be angled up and down within the bar-type bracket for optimal camera aiming. A 1.5mm Allen key is provided for adjusting the camera angle.

LEDs: The Boyo short bar-type license plate camera includes 2 built-in 3W LEDs for added visibility at night and in low-light conditions. A loop-wire on the camera cable is provided for selecting the LEDs On and Off. When off, the VTL402TJS has a LUX of 0.5.

Switchable Features: The VTL402TJS includes 2 loop-wires attached to the camera cable that can be left intact or cut to activate or deactivate camera features.

  • White Loop: While intact, this loop provides both Trajectory Parking Lines and a Mirror camera image. Cutting the loop removes the Parking Lines and displays a Normal camera image.
  • Blue Loop: Cutting the Blue Loop will disable the LEDs from illuminating while reversing.

Installation: The VTL402TJS attaches to your vehicle's existing license plate frame with the supplied hardware. The integrated rear view camera features an attached 20" video/power/ground cable which connects to the 24' video extension cable. The extension cable is then routed from outside of the vehicle through your vehicle's interior to your vehicle's display monitor or optional stand-alone monitor (not included). The provided 39" power and ground wires for the camera get connected to the vehicle's reverse wire and ground location in the rear of the vehicle.

Note: The camera's power wire should be connected to the vehicle's reverse wire to prevent the LEDs from inadvertently being activated while driving.

Camera was working good with my new Kenwood at install, I checked with camera unmounted and mounted. Then this morning I backed up and the camera came on upside down and then quit. After that I have not been able to get the camera to work at all? Do you have troubleshooting information?

Hi , yes I'm also experiencing some problems with my back up camera, just a few weeks ago the back up lights on the camera started flickering.
[ YUDI  Feb 10, 2022 ]
Sorry. No I don't. Mine is still fine. You might check for a loose connection or for damage to the camera.
[ JAMES  Feb 10, 2022 ]
Hey, The one I bought is been working fine. Check the power line to it. Is it from the reverse light? Try disconnecting the camera and connecting it again to the radio. Hope it helps.
[ Suazo  Feb 10, 2022 ]
Am I able to use this as a front camera? I recently bought a larger vehicle and was looking to do front and back cameras.

I haven't had a chance to install it but I guess you could put it on the front of the vehicle
[ dalar  Aug 16, 2021 ]
I don't know any reason you couldn't.
[ JAMES  Aug 16, 2021 ]
Is the camera mounted at the top or bottom of the license plate? Or is it interchangeable? I paid $100 for m new MBZ license plate frame.

I mounted mine at the top. You need to somehow route the wires into the trunk. I went in right above the plate for a nicely finished job. This is the 2nd backup camera I've installed. The first one was junk. This one is decent and easy to install.
[ ANGELO  Jun 25, 2021 ]
I am wanting to use this camera to line up my trailer with my hitch, but am concerned my ball hitch might not be visible. Can the camera's field of vision be adjusted to include the ball hitch? I will be putting this on a pickup.

My camera is mounted on a Chev 2500 HD. The camera is in perfect position for viewing attachment of ball to hitch.
[ BILLY R  Jan 14, 2021 ]
The camera does pivot! As you can see in the pictures, there are two allen screws to tighten when you find the camera position that works for you (the proper sized allen wrench comes with the unit). I have not attempted to adjust the camera down far enough to see the trailer hitch, but I would be very surprised if the camera does not pivot that far. I think it's a pretty safe bet that it will adjust to where you need it. I would try it for you, but I installed the unit on my step-mom's jeep, so I don't have the vehicle at hand.
[ Gabriel  Jan 13, 2021 ]
I have the same camera on my truck and can see the ball hitch just fine.
[ DONALD LEE  Jan 13, 2021 ]
The camera position is fixed. If it doesn't catch the hitch in its default position, you won't be able to see it. (short of re-mounting it so ti can see the hitch). Other models have a pivot design. Good is that it can be adjusted when you want to. Bad is that sometimes you get in the car and someone/something adjusted it where you don't want it...
