One of our existing clients brought his 2014 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van to Mobile Edge in search of a backup camera solution. These vans are very tall, so seeing what is behind them is extremely difficult. We did a little digging to find a solution that would look and work just like the camera system that was installed at the factory.
We turned to Nav-TV for the camera solution. They have a kit designed specifically for the 2014–2016 Sprinter vans. The kit comes with a new third brake light that has a camera built into it. The new camera and brake light bolt right in place of the original light and doesn’t require that we drill any additional holes in the vehicle. The camera includes six IR transmitters to help illuminate the area behind the vehicle in extremely dark conditions.
To interface the camera image with the factory radio, Nav-TV includes a video interface module and dedicated T-harness that allows the camera to be triggered when the transmission is put into reverse. On this vehicle, the CAN BUS does all the communication.
The client was thrilled with how the camera system looked and worked.
