How to video – Backup Camera Installation

Start to finish, fully detailed!

As part 3 of our series on how to install a backup camera we take you through the entire installation process.

Our equipment and installation locations

For our installation, we decided that the back up camera would be located in the rear tailgate and the monitor would be a replacement rearview mirror monitor. The camera we decided on was the Boyo VTK230HD back up camera as it was very small and would mount perfectly to the lip overhang by the license plate.

Here we mounted the backup camera near the license plate on the overhang above the license plate

For the monitor, we opted to use the Safesight RVMZH4300 4.3 glass mount rearview mirror monitor.

Here we installed the glass mount rear view mirror in place of the factory mirror

Why add a back up camera?

The Toyota Sienna minivan is a relatively large vehicle that has multiple blindspots. For most drivers vans and SUV’s are the most difficult vehicles to back up, let alone see something small such as a child or toy directly below the rear bumper. This makes them very prone to hitting objects that you cannot directly see. A back up camera eliminates this risk.

items behind vehicle
It’s to easy to run things over behind your vehicle.

Why is this installation more difficult?

Opening tailgates present a unique problem; the wiring must be installed in a way that allows the tailgate to continue to function normally. If unfamiliar, the installation is difficult, we show you how to make the installation a breeze.

Rosen AV7950 DVD Headrests – Installation

We walk you through the entire installation process of adding Vehicle Specific Rosen DVD headrests to a 2010 Acura MDX SUV. The installation is a relatively easy thing to do but does require some disassembly of the vehicle and some automotive wiring know how.

Step 1 – Equipment Placement
You will need to find a location to mount the control bow and route the wires. The location that we determined would be the best is under the seat.

Step 2 – Remove the seat back for running wires
The plastic seatback is removed to make way for running the wires in the seat for connection to the control box. Simply pop the pops and slide the seat back down for removal.

Step 3 – Remove the original headrests and insert the AV7950
The removal of the factory headrests is simply a matter of pulling them out through the top. When inserting the replacement headrests you will need to route the wiring.

Step 4 – Routing the wire through to the seat bottom
The wiring is run on the left and right side of the seat back to seat bottom connector bracket. The are factory cables that are run and we run ours the same way.

Step 5 – Tie off cabling
The cabling must be secured to prevent cable damage when the seat is moved. All of our cables are tied to the existing factory cables.

Step 6 – Prepare seat back for re-installation
Make sure to have the plastic tabs in place so that they are aligned for the re-installation of the seat back.

Step 7 – Route drivers side wiring to control box
To run the drivers side cabling we attach all of the cables underneath the seat to the factory cables. Once completed we make the connection to the control box.

Step 8 – Power connection
To provide power to the system we connected our power lead to the Bluetooth module behind the rear cigarette lighter plug.

Step 9 – Passenger side cabling
To run the passenger side cabling we opted to remove the center console and route the wiring through the console. Once completed we make the connection to the control box.

Step 10 – Verify our connections with a voltmeter
Before turning on the power we verify our connections with a volt meter

Hopefully this video gives you a better idea as to how we install a set of replacement headrests in your vehicle.

Clarus HR-HD-700 Headrest DVD Player – Review

Headrest DVD player

Overview

The Clarus HDR-HD-700 Headrest DVD Player is designed to fit on the back of your standard car headrest. The disc player part opens up so you can insert your discs into the machine, then the screen comes down over the top and you can watch the movie seamlessly without having to maneuver the device too much.

When you purchase this DVD player, you actually get two of them, so both headrests can have one. Each DVD player comes fully-equipped with a 7-inch LCD monitor, which means that your passengers sitting in the back seat can easily see the movies without having to sit up close to the screen.

If you or your passengers like to view slideshows or listen to music on DVD players, there is a function on each of these players that allows you to do that. Simply insert a USB drive or an SD card into the appropriate spot on the player, and then set up the device to perform the task that you want. In seconds, you should have a slideshow or a set of music queued up and ready to go.

Your children will get a lot of use out of these DVD players as well, because the units come with pre-installed games. If your children are bored of watching movies while in the car, they can switch over to game mode and start playing one of the many games that are available to them.

How does it Work?

The Clarus HDR-HD-700 Headrest DVD Player work by your installation of each monitor onto the back of your headrest. You may need to do a little bit of wiring in order to make the players work, but once you do, everything should be ready to run.

Will this Item Work on All Vehicles?

Because the Clarus HDR-HD-700 Headrest DVD Player is designed to be universal, you can rest assured that it will fit in all makes and models of vehicles. No matter what the size or shape of your headrest is, these DVD players are built to fit perfectly in place.

  • Fits all vehicles

QMV-X10DVD Overhead DVD Player – Review

Overhead DVD player

Overview

The Clarus QMV-X10DVD Overhead DVD Player easily mounts to the inside roof of your vehicle without much difficulty, and the 10-inch monitor points downward, allowing your children easy viewing access from the backseat of the car.

While this is primarily a slot-loading DVD player, there are many other slots attached to this unit as well if you want to use it as a multifunction media device. In fact, there is an HDMI input on the side for connecting a bluray player or other devices that run off of HDMI connections. You also get a USB slot and an SD card slot for the other types of media you may want to queue up to this device for your children to view.

If your kids like to play video games, then they will appreciate the RCA video and audio connections that are available on this DVD player as well. This allows them to hook up some of their favorite game systems and play them through the DVD player as well.

A game remote controller comes with the unit in case your children decide to play their own games or some of the built-in games that come with their movies.

How Does it Work?

When you first purchase the Clarus QMV-X10DVD Overhead DVD Player, you will also be supplied with a mounting bracket that you can attach to the top of your car on the inside. Once you get the bracket installed, you can mount the DVD player to the bracket, and then you will need to hardwire the device into another part of your vehicle for power.

After you get the device all wired up and ready to go, you can then insert a DVD into the side-loading slot, and the movie should start up automatically. When you want to view other devices but use the DVD player’s screen as a monitor, you will simply need to plug in the proper connections on the new device and the DVD player, and then begin using said type of media. However, you may also have to find another power source within your vehicle for the other device you are trying to use.

When it comes to hearing the audio from the device, you can either have your kids use headphones to listen to the movie that is playing, or you can hook up the DVD player to your FM modulator and then have the audio play through your car speakers.

Will this Device work in All Vehicles?

This DVD player should work just fine with all vehicles. There is nothing in the specifications to suggest that it would not be universal. As long as you are able to install the mounting bracket to the top of your vehicle, then DVD player should hook up just fine. You should be able to operate it from within all vehicles as well, as long as you use the standard hardwiring procedures for most vehicles.

Pros

  • Reasonably priced—approximately $260
  • Can connect multiple devices and types of media to this unit
  • Small
  • Lightweight
  • Excellent screen size

Cons

  • Requires installation
  • No built-in speakers
  • May be slightly small for larger vehicles

Overhead DVD player in a 2011 Toyota Sienna with Dual sunroofs

Dual Sunroofs with an overhead DVD player

We receive many phone call with concerned customers after they have purchased an overhead dvd player and not remembering that they have a sunroof only to be told by an installer that they cannot use an overhead monitor.

What’s possible?

At Quality Mobile Video we have some of the best installers available and with a little imagination we show you what can be done in a vehicle with dual sunroofs. Today we installed a Gryphon Mobile MV-RF121DVD Overhead DVD player in a 2011 Toyota Sienna with dual sunroofs. This installation was a little more tricky, with the narrow sliver of roof that was available for mounting we had to make sure that we had a large enough foot print to mount the monitor. We used plate steel to make a bracket that would be strong enough to attach the screen. Other that that the installation was exactly the same as any other overhead dvd player installation.

Color to match

The interior of this Toyota Sienna was grey so we chose the grey version of this overhead dvd player to perfectly match this vehicles interior. This monitor is available in three colors unlike some other models that have snap on trims.

Power source

We ran all of the cabling down the A-pillar and were able to grab 12 volts from the factory fuse box located underneath the dash. The Toyota Sienna is a large van with plenty of power and adding this monitor to the vehicle electrical system was no problem.

Swift Hitch SH01 vs. SH02 Wireless Camera System

Learn all about the Swift Hitch wireless camera systems.

The easiest way to add a temporary camera system

Wireless camera system are the easiest way to add a camera system to any vehicle. The Swift Hitch camera systems are designed for those that have trailers or are commonly towing vehicles. The cameras have built in batteries and magnetic mounts making them perfect for boat yards, quickly hitching vehicles, and those with horse trailers. The trade off is wireless is susceptible to outside noise and interference that can cause usability problems. The Swift Hitch systems have taken this into account and use a digital transmission system that is far less prone to problems making it far more reliable.

Swift Hitch SH01 vs. SH02

There was a time when I wouldn’t recommend any wireless system to anybody regardless of circumstance, that is until the Swift Hitch SH01 and SH02 came along. Both systems come with a rechargeable camera with 10 hour run time for the SH02 and a run time of 3 hours for the SH01. You can easily conserve power with a push of a button. The camera which is relative in size to a small box of matches, attaches to the vehicle with a strong magnetic base, meaning it does require any installation whatsoever. With the built in battery, it requires no drilling, no mounting, no wires!

Camera Features:

The camera is equipped with infrared technology that provides a black and white picture when the camera is in complete darkness. With the high quality CMOS sensor you get excellent picture quality during the day with a great field of view. The camera is well built and designed to withstand commercial use, it’s water resistant and easily tilts for an ideal viewing position.

Monitor features:

The 3.5 inch monitor that comes with this system is also very sturdy and has a 300 ft receiving range all in the palm of your hand. With the extended range and handheld capability this system is such a big hit with companies and people who work with large farm equipment and other large commercial vehicles on a daily basis.

Price difference

The Swift Hitch SH01 is $199.99 and the Swift Hitch SH02 is $239.99.

Other differences:

Other than the battery life, the largest differences between the two systems are a carrying case embedded with protective foam in the SH02 and two small pouches with the SH01. The SH02 also has an additional suction cup set.
