Video Transcript for Rear View Safety G-Series Backup Camera System Review

Today, we're going to review and install the Rear View Safety G-Series Backup System with backup senses. This is part number RVS-776718-PS. This is what the system looks like when it's installed and, for the most part, all you're going to see is just a rear view mirror right here which entirely replaces your original mirror in the truck. When you're driving down a road, it's going to look just like any other mirror. However, when I put it in reverse, you get a audio alert telling power's on for the camera and you can see how the camera comes on in the mirror. Also, there's a neat little icon vehicle right here. On here, you see where the sensors will be picking up objects.

Right now, we're not close to a wall. Let's go ahead and back up to one and see how it works. As closer we get to it, you can see it shows up in a scale right here in meters how close we are. The closer I get, you get a audio alert. Then, we get a visual of what's back there.

You see the green line right here so we're pretty close. You can see how it shows in yellow that we're getting even closer. On the camera, it looks like we're a lot closer to the wall but in fact, we're about two foot. This is really particular useful in a parking lot with tight clearance. When you're also using the camera, it be a little helpful to get as close to our trailer as possible. This part of the package, we've got the launcher in the vehicle, also doubles the rear view mirror.

We also have four sensors. We have two on this side of the bumper and two on the other side of the bumper. The camera itself can install in inaudible 00:02:05 locations and doesn't take up much room. This is it right here above the Nissan logo. Now we'll go ahead and show how we installed the system. First off, we'll look at our backup camera itself.

On this particular application, we installed this on the Nissan inaudible 00:02:19 right here. There's a personal preference where you want to install it but we kept ours as close to the factory location would be. To install, it was relatively simple. The little bracket that comes with the camera issues two self-tacking screws here and here and a decorative version so it matches up to the camera. Off to the side here, we drilled a smaller hole to run our camera wires through. I have an identical camera separate here. You can see how big of a hole we have to drill for this wire harness to go through on the inside. Basically, a little over a quarter inch will work just fine. One note as you're drilling through here, you'll have to drill through two different layers, through the inaudible 00:02:53 itself and then through this piece of sheet metal right here. Other than that, it's not to bad of a drilling job. There's nothing really to worry about once you go through two pieces of metal. To get access behind a tailgate, this panel need to be removed. It's very simple. There's eight screws you have to remove. Then you take it up and out of the way. Once we've got our camera mounted, we run a cable through the tailgate pre-opened through here and there's existing drain hole that we ran our wired connection to. This is our wire connection and then this goes on to our extension cable. These just simply plug together. I'm actually lu-me 00:03:32 to help hold up against the bottom of the tailgate where it's fully installed. Let's get our spare parts out again. This is the same connection we just looked at inaudible 00:03:41 tailgate where this wire went underneath it to the bed. It has this special connection right here. This goes up to an extension cable that'll go eventually to the inside of our truck. To connect these two is very simple. You just line them up until they run together and then use a built in nut to help secure them together. There's also a we-ller 00:04:01 tight sleeve that covers up the whole connection as well. Looking underneath your truck, here's the camera cable and here's our extension and here's our we-ller 00:04:10 tight connector right here I already put together so I'll just go ahead and slide the sleeve over it. It's a real tight fit. Then we'll continue on with this wire going up towards the center of a cab in the back. Basically, what I did is I ran it up and over the spare tire, above the cross members, and where I could right above the axle, if you look up here, it's a nice big gap where I can run my wires through over it. This section right here is the very back edge of the cab where we drilled out a hole. I drilled my hold out to a 11/16 outside diameter. Now I install a grommet after that. I used part number SWC8057. The other inaudible 00:04:58 extension cable that we ran our bushing through is going to be a little bit bigger than the bushing itself I guess a inside diameter-wise. There's an easy fix for that. I just simply just snipe. Cut the bushing on just one side only. It's easy to spread apart and slip your wires inside. Then you just snap it back into place. We'll leave that video camera extension cable alone for now. Now we'll work with the back up sensors. This is one of our back up sensors right here and you get four of them so you want to spread them across the bumper as even as possible. To drill a hole in the bumper, you'll require a hole saw. In the kit comes an exact one that you need to go through the bumper. Take a few moments and use some primer to cover up your inside edges and then we can use the included grommets that fit inside here just like that. Then we can install our sensor. It's kind of hard to read but a sensor has a label on it called "up." Basically if you have the cable pointing towards the ground like this, it's in the correct spot. Let's go ahead and push that through the grommet and just snips into place. On the inside of our bumper here, you can see how everything connects together. With the kit, it comes pre-assembled but it's pretty easy to take apart and reinstall. It basically pushes together and then you've got this cap to help protect it. It just threads on and that's it. We repeated the same process for our main three sensors. Then once we have installed the bumper, we ran our wires up to the front towards the center of the cab once again. Same as before, we went over this cross member here and ran our wires up in that same hole. On the inside of the cab of the truck, this is our hole we drilled out with our bushing and all the wires that came up from the back of the truck so we're actually done with the back. Now we're going to do the rest of our work inside the vehicle. We've got our four wires from the sensors and they come to this junction box right here. They're easy to install by pushing into place just like that. We can also plug in our alarm. Pretty simple. We just match up color to color. Blue to blue. We'll move on to our next wire harness this end to plug back into our junction box right here. This is all the connections we need to make on our junction box. We'll take the provided cover and snap it into place. We can secure the cover with a couple of set screws that are provided with the kit. Now let's go ahead and work with this end with the yellow connection and a black connection. To this end, our cable from the tailgate will come up to here. This is the end that we ran to the inside. Connect these two together, we'll used the provided adapter that looks like this. Tighten then up. Red to black. It's going to be yellow to yellow with this black adapter in the middle. That takes care of connection from our camera on our tailgate. The rest of our cable here and this green wire here, which we do not use, by the way, we need to run this up towards the front of the truck. To route our cable to the front, I'm just going to leave it loose behind here. I have this trim panel right here that snaps off really easily and we can hide our cable underneath this. This is the other end of the cable where we pushed up from the rear up here to the front. Same thing. We going to remove the plastic. We'll keep it underneath as much as possible. This little end right here says "PDC" on the label and we'll match up to this label here, PDC. This one right here with these wires is not used in our application so let's leave that guy alone. We're getting close to the end here. This wire harness that we plugged into needs some additional wires ran to it. This is what they call a fuse box in here because this is where power goes into it from the battery with this fuse holder. This is where we ran our red wire from the battery. Our total power, in this case, we ran from the fuse box right here. You could also run it from the battery. We just used a simple fuse tact to attach to a circuit that turned on when we had the key in the run position. I ran a wire out of the box. We put it through the lu-me 00:09:43 and ran it across the engine compartment and ran it through the grommet back down the other side. You see where our red wire comes back out of the lu-me 00:09:49 and it goes right into this grommet right here. I just simple used a razor knife and just made a slit in it and pushed my wires through. Our green wire right here is labeled back camera signal which basically means when you turn the reverse lights, the signal for reverse lights comes to this wire and in here it turns on the whole system. This wire, we simply ran along the inaudible 00:10:13 frame rail back to the reverse light at the tail light and just tapped off of that and ran it up here for a signal. To make things easy access to, we tapped off our reverse light on the driver's side tail light. Basically at the bottom of the light in the socket right here, we took our green wire we had ran from the front, back to the blue wire right here. Our black wire right here just simply goes to ground and I used a little bit of sheet metal and used a self-tacking screw to attach it. All these wires, we can tuck in back behind this panel right here. The other black cable continues on basically ran inside this channel right here all the way up and into the pillar right here. There is our airbag up in here so be very, very careful how you run your wires. We want it run behind the airbag and the sheet metal. At this point, we can actually put all our door seal back together and our trim. This is our other end of our cable we ran through plastic. By the way, my plastic here, I just gently pulled back on it and it popped loose. Once we got our able the way we want it, we'll tuck it behind the headliners a little bit. Then we'll go ahead and push our trim piece back in and it snaps right back in. Of course you're going to have to remove your original mirror. There's probably a little set screw very similar like this to undo and it just simply slides off. Their new mirror will slide back on in place just like the old one did except our new one has our cable. It also has this little trim piece right here and it snaps on right at the bottom here. This'll help hide your cable a little bit as it goes up toward the headliner. This'll slide back over to mount on the windshield. Make sure it's fully installed. Make sure cable signal okay. Tighten up the little set screw right here to help lock in place. Go ahead and hook these two together. By the way, all our connections are keyed so make sure you line up the gr-oos 00:12:51 correctly and it'll go right together. Then we go ahead and tuck our wires up behind the headliner. With all our connections made, we go ahead and reassemble our main trim panels and pieces. We'll simply bundle up our wiring and everything's going to be hidden behind the seat. That'll finish it for the Rear View Safety G-Series Backup Camera System part number RVS-776718-PS.

Review from a similar G-Series in Backup Camera


One of our Technicians has about 20 years in truck aftermarket setup and thought that this rear view camera was as good as it gets. In all, the quality, installation flexibility, video quality and adjustments made this product something that we will purchase again. The compass and temperature were a bonus as well as remote control adjustments for grid lines , brightness and such. This shipped very quickly and all components are well labeled and packed. The directions are easy to follow. Our installation is mounted below a safety warning LED light so it is protected but something etrailer might think about is a surround escutcheon type thing for added protection.

I have been very happy with this product. It has had no issues, however this instruction manual could use some improvement. The unit has functioned flawlessly so far.

Review from a similar G-Series in Backup Camera


I bought this because my daughter and I had both backed the truck into the camper parked in the driveway. So far, it has worked for its purpose. It does not work as well as the factory setup in my Ford Escape. The main problem is seeing the image in the rear view mirror when the sun is bright. I also need to put on my reading glasses to see the image clearly (if I could drive with the seat back another 3 inches I would be fine). The auto-dim feature of the mirror works great.
After the initial install, I moved the camera from over top of the license plate to the bottom of the bumper beside of the hitch receiver, having cut a notch in some of the plastic trim so it would not block the view. That was a huge improvement.
When installing on a mid 2000s Ford Superduty, there are some good videos online for removal of the A-pillar trim and grab handle. There is a wire under the dash related to PTO functionality that provides power only when the key is switched on that you can use to power the unit. Run the cable to the camera under the sill plates (these are in the bottom of the door opening) to the back of the cab before exiting to the underside of the truck. Coil the excess wire here and zip tie it. When having major engine work done, point this wire out to the mechanic in case he has to lift the cab to do the work -- there will be enough extra wire to allow him to do this without disconnecting anything.

Review from a similar G-Series in Backup Camera


This product works great as a backup camera and mirror but the Bluetooth audio mic/speaker quality leaves a lot to be desired. Never could get the speaker loud enough, it would play audio over the stereo and the microphone picked up a lot of background noise.

Review from a similar G-Series in Backup Camera


Has worked every time transmission put in reverse, picture clear and accurate to proximity. Unsure if it was a problem with the onstar section of the mirror, one time lost signal on a trip, but later worked flawlessly. Defiantly will keep you out of trouble when backing up.


Comments
work just as great now as it did when first Installed.

No problems. Works as advertised. I use to have a wireless camera, but that would disconnect now and then, or pick up some ones security camera when driving by. Wired connections are the way.

auto dimming backup mirror works great. had a local shop install it---I'll never be without a backup camera in any car I own

Review from a similar G-Series in Backup Camera


Great choice. Works very well. My truck lacked 3 things that I had gotten used to having - compass, outdoor air temp gauge. and rear view camera. This solved them all! Takes some trial/error to get temp probe in right spot.

Still happy with my purchase after one year. It is a quality item I installed in a 2009 Honda Pilot for which install I wrote a guide on the Pilot forums. Cheers!
