Red = +12VDC, Black = GND, Yellow = Video, Green = Video GND. So red and black should go to your vehicle's power and ground. Red can be connected to the backup light wiring with a crimp splice connector. This way the camera will come on only when the vehicle is put in reverse. Yellow and green go to the monitor you are using. You can direct connect but a couple of cautions. First the wires are small and hard to work with. You want to be sure not to break any of the small copper strands when you strip the wires. Be sure to solder the connections or they will stop working in a year or two due to corrosion. Second, if you ever need to replace the camera you'll wish you had the plug in connectors (I know, I'm on my third camera. This is my first license plate frame version.) What I did was solder mating connectors to my vehicle power and LCD wires and then just plugged it in. Now if I ever need to replace it, it will be very easy.

My camera was professionally installed by a stereo electronics shop. It comes on about one second after the gear shift lever is put in reverse. It appeared that all of the necessary wiring harnesses were included. As some of the reviewers mentioned the hot and the ground leads are quite small in gauge.

I've been through several times. I've had no issues.

Probably not. I had the same issue on a newer Jeep Wrangler Sahara. Had to send back. This camera requires the full frame area of the license plate in order to fit.

It's pretty straightforward. I installed this unit in an f150. Remove the license plate and run the wire behind it and along the chassi follow other wires that lead to the engine compartment. From the engine bay, on the firewall there will be a grommet with other factory wires running into the cab. Route your wire behind the dash and up to the stero. There's reall no trick to doing all this. Just take your time and make sure to use wire ties to secure the wire every foot or so.

The camera produces a RCA composite signal (old school analog TV). To the degree your tablet can accept this type of input, then it should display. My experience with tablets is they tend not to accept a composite signal natively.

yes or better yet run it to your fuse block and install an on/off ( rocker switch) so your can flip it on/off at any time. Even rolling down the road to check your trailer behind you.

There should be a little hex key included in the box. There are two little holes on the top of the license plate camera section. Use the key to loosen the camera part and move it up or down. If no key in box, you should be able to find one at the any auto parts store.
