A client from Allentown recently contacted Mobile Edge to inquire about a Lexus RX350 backup camera solution. After inspecting the vehicle, we suggested a compact wedge-style camera that would mount above the license plate and a compact color LCD screen that we could mount beneath the rearview mirror. The client liked the plan and gave us the go-ahead to schedule an appointment for the installation.
We started by mounting a Rostra 250-8147 CMOS camera on the rear of the vehicle. Our technicians placed the camera to the left of the hatch release handle to ensure great visibility of everything behind the SUV. The wiring for the camera is routed through the flexible conduit at the top of the hatch to ensure it’s protected from the elements and completely invisible.
The Accele LCP43LW is a universal 4.3-inch monitor that includes a swivel mounting bracket. We attached the monitor to the windshield to ensure it would be clearly visible to the driver. The camera and monitor are wired to display the rearview image automatically when the transmission is in reverse.
