What is a Backup Camera?

There are two main types of mirrors to help you see around your car while driving. Rearview mirrors help you see at the rear of your car. Side view mirrors help you see at the side of your car. Rearview and Side view mirrors capture some of the areas around your car, but a backup camera can catch the area that is usually in your blind spot as well leaving you with 360 degrees of vision around your car.

A backup camera is located on the back of your car. The monitor is displayed in front of your car, usually near the radio in cars equipped with this feature. Having a backup camera helps to prevent collisions because it gets rid of the blind spot. A backup camera can help in the process of backing up. It alerts you if something is blocking you from continuing to back up.
