Follow along with this blog and we’ll take you through the troubleshooting process when your backup camera isn’t doing what it’s supposed to.
A note before the post: a continuous stream of video that shows the back of your vehicle can be a serious distraction from driving, and it’s important to ensure that any backup camera setup is only used in a safe manner. Keep in mind that what’s in front of your vehicle is probably more important than anything behind. You should also be sure to comply with any local & federal laws you may have concerning running screens in the front. Be sure that you comply with your local law as far as screens visible to the driver goes.
