Miniature surface mount rearview camera: It is a universal miniature mount camera that can easily mount to the back or the front of the car. The tiny dimension allows it to be hidden for a more OEM appearance. It also has a 170° wide angle view with distance guidelines so you can see how close objects are behind you or in front of you when you're parking.

If the wire is left uncut then it will function as a standard rearview camera with reverse imaging. Dustproof and waterproof, aluminum housing.
