Installing reverse camera on my New Toyota Vios

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I am getting my new Toyota Vios in a few weeks but it did not come with a reverse camera. I like to check with Vios owner if I can just install the reverse camera and link up ti the stock dvd player or I need to buy a brand new full set?

 

Thks.

Just purchase a new camera and go to any audio shop to wire up for u. They might need to drill a small hole next to your rear license plate light.

If you stay at East side, You can try Soon Lee Auto at Geylang Lorong 39 or Mod Ministry at 50 Serangoon Ave 4. I find their services good and prices are reasonable.

it necessary for people to install reverse camera for their car

 

Yes its very important.

 

I heard one guy ran over his son.

 

So if you have a camera then you

 

wouldn't have the pain of running over

 

you own flesh and blood. Even if

 

he was the son of the post man also

 

I wouldn't want to run over him.

 

Run over the post man is a different

 

question.

 

:D

Depend on individual, some people might not like to use reverse camera.

Suggest to install in-car DVR camera. 1 infront and 1 on the rear.

Vio not that big also need a reverse camera? Sensor should be more than sufficient.

actually nothing to do with size, it's the blind spots that you can't see physically and through the mirrors.

I just completed installation of my rear cam this day. Thru research and I did it myself. I bought it at Lazada and I passed the problem because of some conversion/video by-pass. Additional items I bought are female RCA with attached wire and switch. And, willing to help you for the full instruction/details..

DVR will be helpful to capture critical moments leading to accident but for having a rear view while reversing, how is it applicable?

 

Assuming the front dash camera has a display, won't it be tedious to switch to rear view manually? This is unlike a reverse camera that gets activated when the reverse gear is engaged.

 

Just my thought.
