Backup camera

Backup cameras have now become so customary, we wonder how we ever drove without them. Being able to see what’s behind you has decreased risks, injuries, and has kept people and pets safer. It’s a no brainer when it comes to having a backup camera.

But what if your vehicle doesn’t have a backup camera?

Well rest assured, you can still install one of these with relative ease regardless of the make and model of your car.

Here’s all you need to know.


As with most things, cost will vary depending on your preferences. Does your vehicle have an infotainment screen that will work with a backup camera? If so, chances are it has the ability to have a backup camera wired in to work directly with the screen. And while the labor and installation on this will cost more, it can be worth it in the long run to have it work seamlessly with your vehicle’s screen.
And if if your vehicle doesn’t have a screen, you can still install a hard mounted camera. These come in various sizes so you don’t have to worry about things looking too crowded or having a screen that’s too small. Whatever your situation, Paradise Village has the best brands to help make sure you have the perfect camera install for your vehicle.

Features to Look For  

Now that back up cameras are so common, (all vehicles since 2018 now have them!) it can be hard to 
know what to look for when weeding through the options. Here are a few good tips to sort out some of the lower end options that won’t last.  

Type of screen 

Most camera options now are LCD (liquid crystal display) or TFT-LCD screens. Between the two , always go for TFT-LCD screens. These are the best in quality , offer clearer vision, and are great quality picture without lag time. And when it comes to screen size, that will be personal preference, but the most common sizes are 5, 7, 9 and 10 inch.

Field of view 

A camera’s filed of view has a lot of contributing factors that will affect your visibility. The main factors to consider are image sensors size and the type of lens focal length. As with typical camera, the bigger the sensor the better the picture. A bigger sensor will perform well in dimmer light and can give you a wider filed of visions. For example, a 1/4″ sensor will only deliver roughly 60 -90 degrees for your field of view of view. Whereas a 1/3″ will deliver around 120 degrees. Paradise Village is here to provide you with options that are sure to deliver the crystal – clear image and wide filed of vision so you can drive at your safest.
