    Enhance Your Driving Experience with Our Premium Head Units and 1080p Rear Camera

    Installing a 1080p Rear Camera: A Comprehensive Guide

    Upgrading your vehicle with a 1080p rear camera is an excellent way to enhance safety and convenience while driving. In this blog article, we will cover the installation process for both aftermarket cameras and factory camera retention. Additionally, we will discuss how to configure the CAN bus settings for seamless communication between your car and head unit.

    Installing an Aftermarket 1080p Rear Camera

    Follow these steps to install an aftermarket 1080p rear camera to your premium head unit:

    1. Choose a suitable location for the rear camera, ideally near the license plate or in the center of the rear bumper for the best field of view.
    2. Connect the rear camera's power cable to the vehicle's reverse light circuit. This will ensure that the camera is activated when you shift into reverse gear.
    3. Route the video cable from the rear camera to the head unit, ensuring it is securely fastened and hidden from view. Be sure to avoid areas that may cause interference, such as near high-voltage cables or other electronic devices.
    4. Connect the video cable to the head unit's dedicated rear camera input. Consult your head unit's user manual for specific instructions on connecting the video cable.
    5. Configure the head unit's settings to display the rear camera feed when the vehicle is in reverse. This may involve accessing the head unit's settings menu and selecting the appropriate rear camera input.
    6. Test the rear camera by shifting your vehicle into reverse gear. The head unit should display the camera's video feed, allowing you to clearly see the area behind your vehicle.

    Factory Camera Retention

    Retaining your factory rear camera can be done in two ways:

    • Using our kits: In some cases, our head unit upgrade kits may include the necessary cables and connectors to retain your factory rear camera.
    • Using a factory camera retention cable: If our kit does not include the necessary components to retain your factory camera, you may need to purchase a factory camera retention cable separately. This cable will allow you to connect your factory camera to the new head unit, maintaining its functionality. To find a suitable factory camera retention cable, search online using a phrase like 'MY VEHICLE MAKE MODEL AND YEAR - buy factory camera retention cable'. For example, if you have a Toyota Landcruiser 200 series, you can search for 'Toyota Landcruiser 200 series buy factory camera retention cable'.

    Configuring CAN Bus Settings

    Sometimes, you may need to configure the CAN bus settings for your car and head unit to communicate with each other. This involves adjusting parameters within the head unit's settings menu to ensure proper communication between the two systems.
