The PLCM23IR is a rear-view backup camera that flush mounts to the rear of your vehicle. Paired with an in-vehicle monitor, it's a great way to increase the safety and security of your vehicle. This powerful camera is equipped with true color reproduction, a resolution of 420 TV lines. It works in all weather conditions and at night, thanks to IP67-compliant weatherproofing, built-in fog resistance, and excellent low lux performance. This camera even has the ability to project distance scale lines onto the monitored image - so you can tell how far away nearby objects are. And it's finished in a unique zinc metal chrome, a light reflective color that fits well with many cars' exteriors. An included hole-saw mounting bit allows you to drill an appropriately sized hole for the camera.

What finally clicked was the camera was fine with the car in the accessory position but the problems began once the engine was running. Interference? No. Using a digital voltmeter I checked the DC voltage at the camera and with the car in the accessory position read between 11.8 & 12.5 volts. With the engine running the voltage was between 13.9 and 14.6 volts.
Put the camera on my bench connected to a small LCD monitor and using a variable output DC power supply noticed that the camera works fine between about 10 and 12.5 volts but the second the voltage exceeds13 volts the camera starts to flicker, picture goes on and off and colors change randomly.
Hooked up an Audiovox CMOS-2 in place of the Pyle and everything works perfectly.
Most car 12V circuits with aproperly functioning charging system will read at least 13.8 volts running so the bottom line is this camera has zero tolerance for any voltage fluctuations.
Shame. Picture wasn't half bad, field of view was adequate and although marginal, the low light visibility was usable.
The power cord for this uses a fairly standard 5.5 mm plug with the red wire being hot and the black being ground. Power should be 12 volt, DC, like most everything else in your car. Usually, this is wired into your backup lights.
The video out is a standard RCA plug that carries a composite video signal. The 17 feet long video cable has an additional red wire, very thin, maybe 26 gauge, that is exposed at both ends. This is used if your video display requires a 12 volt trigger for the backup camera. (The lack of a manual for this camera in which this may be mentioned is one of the reasons that I only give this four stars.) My system needs this trigger. Unfortunately, the manual for my receiver didn't describe this requirement. What I finally did was wire the trigger wire of my receiver to the red wire on the video cable behind my dash. The other end of the video cable's red wire, at the back of my car, was wired into the hot wire for my backup lights. I also connected the wire from my receiver intended for the ground side of my parking brake instrument light straight to chassis ground.
Now when I go into reverse the receiver is triggered by the 12 volts from the backup lights and automatically switches the video display to the backup camera. The camera is also turned on by the power going to the backup lights.
1. The picture looks very good considering the resolution and the price. I tested the camera before installing it by viewing the output on an LCD screen so I knew it worked.
2. The lines displayed on the screen, once you finally get the camera aimed properly, make a good visual reference.
3. It came with a hole saw for easy installation.
4. The included video cable reached to both ends of my car with some left over.
5. Pyle tech support was very knowledgeable and helpful.
1. No manual explaining these things or providing installation instructions.
2. No marking on the camera indicating up or down.
3. It is not easy to get the camera aimed precisely on angled bumpers or bumpers with irregular surfaces.
4. The metal mounting clip on the camera body could be better.
Overall, very satisfied.
In my setup I ran power from a direct source (not using the backup lights or any other already used line), and that source is the MyGig LockPick (Google that) which lets the camera work like a factory installed option. When I shift the auto transmission into reverse, it shows the camera on the mygig factory radio/nav unit. There are grommets under the tire jack that you can use to route cables. I then routed cables around the passenger side of the vehicle. There is a enough play in the molding and carpet to not have to rip anything out to run cable.
The only word of caution was my stupidity - leave enough slack in the cables at the back of the camera to pull it out to reorient it as needed. I tore the wires out, and had to order a new one.
