3 GREAT TIPS FOR SELECTING BACK UP CAMERAS FOR CARS
It hurts so much when you realize that you’ve knocked over the parking meter while backing up your car…again. The pain is physical. And the other day you’d crushed your pet’s tail underneath while reversing your car…and the time before that you’d broken the curb. If you are a person who has set no limits to backing-up accidents, back-up cameras are here for your rescue. Here are three great tips for selecting back-up cameras for cars.
Tip #1: Assess what you own
If there is going to be a camera, there has to be a screen for you to view what the camera sends back to you. Where are you going to install this screen? If there is already a screen on your dashboard which can be tweaked to accept signals from the back-up camera, you’re good to go. If not, you can free up some space on the dashboard itself to mount a screen somewhere. It can be on top of it, or flush with it…whatever works. You will have to figure it out.
Tip #2: Assess what you need
The kind of back-up camera you need will depend on your driving lifestyle. Typically, if you frequently drive during low-light conditions, you will need a camera that can “see” well in low light. If you require guidance of parking lines, there are cameras that show them while backing into a parking. If you own pets and babies, it is recommended that you buy a camera with a really wide viewing angle to cover all your blind spots.
Tip #3: Assess what you can spend
Depending on how much paraphernalia is required to get your camera up and working, the costs can come to anywhere between $400-1,500. You don’t really need anything swanky with LED lights and musical beepers – just something that helps you park and get out safely would work as well.
