You don’t need to be an expert in car maintenance and repairs to upgrade your car through the installation of a reversing camera system. If you are just looking for a basic system with just one or two cameras, then you can easily mount your reversing camera in one of three basic ways. We discuss these basic methods below:
License-plate frame replacements. This is the easiest model or kit to install in your car, especially if you have zero-to-little knowledge in auto repairs and maintenance. The reversing camera is embedded in a frame, and this is screwed into the homes that also hold the license plate. The frame will go across the top of the license plate and will be displayed like a license-plate frame.
License-plate center mount. The design is similar to the license-plate replacement, but comes with a slight design addition- the reversing camera is positioned on a tiny, tilting neck that’s fitted behind the top of the car’s license plate. There are different ways on how you can attach the center mount: you can use adhesive strips, simple clips or use permanent screws.
Flush-mount installations. This is a more complex installation, and requires the insertion of the camera in a part of the car, like the trunk lid or the bumper. To do this, you may need to drill a visible hole in the car, which means that you should be accurate and careful when completing the installation. You need to be certain of the position of the camera, since if you point the reversing camera too low or too high, then you are stuck with it. This is not usually recommended for beginners or those without experience in auto works, and often this is best done by the supplier.
For more complex installations or advanced camera systems with multiple reversing cameras, it would best to contact a legitimate and experienced provider in your area. In Australia, PPA Car Audio not just offers a wide range of reversing camera systems for various applications, it also offers assistance when it comes to installation and maintenance of these systems.
