Back-up cameras will be mandatory in 2018, but nearly half of new vehicles already have them. New camera uses are on the way, too.

    I just added an OEM compatible backup camera in my daughter's new PriusC for $115 and installation was easy. Took less than an hour and works perfectly. The PriusC does not have this as an option for some reason but my daughter learned to drive in my wife's Ford Fusion Hybrid and we all love the backup camera.

    @emmmw, OEM compatible meaning it hooks up to the existing screen in the dash?

    My 2014 pathfinder rearview camera is really out of focus and they are telling me that is the way it is. Anyone else have this problem. Just purchased this vehicle last week

    camera is dirty too many times here in Russia... need some new technology for our market))
  • I have an issue,more of a curious question. I have a 2015 Hyundai Equus and my backup camera works very well 99.99% of the time. WHEN I park in a particular parking space and only this space at the post office and I put the car in reverse my backup camera will suddenly revert back to the GPS map. THIS IS the only space it does it in. Any other timer place the system does what it's suppose to do. ODD ? very....can these cameras be affected by outside microwaves or something.

    What are the dimensions of the cameras. I'm doing a paper and I just need the dimensions!

    You can save the significant expense of a backup camera system by simply turning your damned head around and looking at where you are backing up.

    Not everyone is young and has great flexibility in their neck. It has been great for me and I’m glad they are mandatory on new cars now.

    I still like to get "eyes on" things behind me, but I do like the dynamic trajectory on the backup camera on our new Rogue
