Summary: I got this camera on a special for $20 with my Sony XAV-701HD . I thought it was just thrown in and not worth it. WRONG! THIS IS A GOOD CAMERA and the picture of my HU is awesome. Daytime is clear even when backing towards the sun. I can see color at night with only the reverse lights. The three color horizontal line is a plus for gaging distance. I love it and recommend this camera.
Pros: Installation was not too hard and you get plenty of cabling. The camera seems sturdy
Cons: The body is a little large' which limited the installation spots on my SUV.
Summary: This is the perfect rear-view camera. The wire kit was complex but well documented, the wires were just long enough to get the job done. Worked perfectly with my sony receiver.
Pros: * power on with backup light works perfect and easy to wire thanks to tap-splice kit * wires were long enough to get the job done with a little bit of play left for mounting the stereo * easy to aim * easy to assemble
Cons: * wire plugs were large and required lots of effort to squeeze through the chasis holes from exterior to interior * I scratched the camera lens on accident during final install because of bubble shape of camera * very pricey
Summary: camera functions correctly, image quality is good
Pros: great image
Cons: Cable from the power supply to the camera is too short for bigger trucks and suvs. the power supply is designed to mount outside of the dash. On my long wheel base ford f-250 super cab I had to cut and add additional multi-conductor wire to even get it to an area under the back seat. I cut the wire and soldered all the connections and covered with heat shrink and it did work fine with no perceivable interference.
Summary: I too have the Sony XNV-770BT A/V Receiver and added this camera, love it... Had to run the wire to the radio red wire for the camera to have power, works great, thanks to the support of Crutchfield's support tec guys.....
Pros: Great picture night or day....
Cons: Cables not long enought... I have a F150 and the control unit has to be inside the cab.... But got it in there with 6 in to play with...
Summary: Great picture day or night...clear. Sony Quality. BOB the lines are for adjusting the area you can back up into safely. It shows the area (size) of your vehicle and where you will be when you back up.
