The main feature of this product is the built in distance sensors, which send an audible signal to the monitor when you are approaching an object, with a “beeping” getting more intense, the closer you get to your object. These sensors can also be calibrated to be accurate on any size of vehicle, allowing them to be accurate.

There is a general lack of specifications on both the monitor and the camera on the manufacturers website as well as the contained manual. The camera has quite a unique mounting because of the integrated sensors, designed to go behind the numberplate with the camera and sensors peaking over the top. This makes installation quite easy in most vehicles. The image from the camera is acceptable, particularly on the small screen, and it seems sturdy enough, with no complaints of damaged units or faults. There has been a few reports of a sensor failing after 6 months but nVISION have been good about replacing them.

The first thing to say about the monitor is it’s small size. The screen is only 2.5″ but does it’s job admirably. The screen attaches to your dashboard with an adhesive strip and allows you to see what’s behind you, without much details. For some, a small screen could be a blessing, especially if they don’t want a lot of space taken up with a good screen. The build quality on the screen is acceptable and the fixing is secure.

The nVISION 60195VA Rearview Camera System is a well priced basic wired reverse camera system with inbuilt distance sensors. It’s an especially great buy for people who don’t want a large screen in their car or would like to combine their purchase with a rear distance parking sensor.
