Make Driving Safer Using a Side-View Camera

There are some blind spots and hard-to-see areas in your perception no matter what type of vehicle you drive. A side-view camera can offer you a full picture of what you might be missing on the road during your travels. You can explore side-view cameras and the range of features and options they have when you visit eBay.

How does this system work?

A blind spot camera kit seeks to compensate for areas that your normal visual range cannot see while you are driving. You can place these cameras anywhere on your vehicle. A side-view camera typically offers you a view of the traffic and scenery behind the flanks of the car. The camera system transmits images to a small display screen that you can look at without turning your head and taking your eyes from the road. These kits are intended to make things easier for you to spot and increase your safety while driving.

Can you choose a screen size?

Your side-view camera will relay the images it sees to a small screen. You can mount this screen on your dashboard or in some other convenient place that's easy for you to see without turning your head. There are small screens for a more compact installation and larger ones that might display images more sharply. Screen dimensions are usually measured in inches diagonally. Some common sizes you can choose from on eBay are listed here:

  • 4 inches
  • 5 inches
  • 7 inches
  • 8 inches
  • 9 inches
How do you connect these cameras?

Most cameras will use one of two main connection types to send images to your display:

  • Wired: A wire physically connects part of the camera setup to the display screen.
  • Wireless: This type of connection does not need a physical wire. It may use Bluetooth technology to sync up with the display unit and send data to it.
Can you get camera kits for different vehicles?

Many side cameras are designed to be universal and compatible with as many vehicles as possible. However, if you have a particular vehicle brand and would like to ensure its compatibility with the side view camera of your choice, you can use the categories on eBay to find the camera kits that are intended for your brand. You can find side view cameras for the following common car brands:

  • Ford
  • Honda
  • Hyundai
  • Toyota
