Wireless Backup Camera

All the android headunits are compatible with a backup camera. Only a few of the cameras purchased are actually wireless.


While the android backup cameras are called ‘wireless’, this doesn’t not mean they have no wires. This sounds odd, but true. The strange advertising of the so-called wireless android headunit backup cameras means they are only partly wireless. The camera needs power to operate the sensor and the transmitter. This is often wired directly to the reversing/backup warning light at the rear of the vehicle. The actual wireless bit is the long cable run. From the camera at the rear of the car to the head unit up by the driver the wireless can negate the need for this cable.

True Wireless

There is a true wireless backup camera system that doesn’t rely on installing an android headunit first. There is no need to access the vehicle wiring to find this illusive backup light wire. No warranty issues with adapted wiring or removing plastic trim to connect the wires.

Easy to fit

The true wireless camera for backup is really easy to fit. The true wireless nature of the camera needs no cables or harness, no plugs and sockets and no wires to work. It is the same to the screen at the front with the exception of the power cable to the front phone charging power socket.

How easy is easy?

It can take as little as five minutes to fit the wireless backup camera system. This is mostly due to there being no cables to find and connect. The rest is due to a well designed system. The wireless cameras have an internal rechargeable battery. This is how the camera gets power and can be 100% wireless, needing no connection to the car.


The screen with its base acts as a display for the wireless backup camera. It also acts as the master controller of the wireless cameras. The Screen can connect to two wireless backup cameras (a second wireless camera is available here – Amazon).

Great Value

If you don’t need the extra hassle of changing your headunit just to get a wireless backup camera, this AUTO-VOX wireless backup camera system (on Amazon) is what you need. It is easy to install and gives a great wireless picture making parking a overall safer an less troublesome task.
