Here we see the DR650GW-2CH-Truck front camera installed securely on the windshield as well as the R-100L 7" LCD display firmly mounted to the dashboard. Both components are safely out of the driver's line of sight.
With the truck turned on and the gear selector in reverse, the back-up display turns on automatically to provide an excellent picture of the area behind the truck. The rearview kit control box can be configured like this to only come on when in reverse, or the rear feed can be set to display all the time.

Now we see a closer shot of the view on the screen shown from the reversing back-up camera, nice wide-angle field-of-view. The best part? There are infrared LEDs on the rear camera so you will get a clear picture from behind the vehicle even at night!
