Panasonic CY-RC50KU Rear View Camera Summary

This Panasonic rear view camera sits well and truly in the middle of the pack when it comes to performance and components.

It does not have any other features like reverse guidelines and an additional third party must be purchased if you do not have a build-in dash monitor. The camera is also priced more then what you expect for its capabilities and features, especially as you might still need to invest in an additional head unit.

Better option is available for cheaper, this is not a recommended unit. Have a loot at this comparison rear view camera chart for better performers.

    I would like to fix the rear view camera in my car. I am using a Toyota Corola Altis car having the Panasonic audio system with video monitor facility and the model No. is PZ071-12007 and ref.No CV-VS70G6NT.

    Please let me whether the Rear View Camera is compatible to the above audio system. If it is compatible please send me the detail where to give the cable connection in the audio system.
