Tilt function was upside down

published

My camera is not fully tilt down. But fully to up. That opposite!! Who need a view of up high when you reversing? So basically the factory installed wrong side. The wire is obstruct it's face down. There is no way to fix this problem. So I can see only surrounding. Not actual full rear view to stop a car. As spent $400 to install it to a car, no way to just take it off from a car to return or refund. Just super disappointed to wasted super expensive investment for less work. All I wanted is stretch a limit of reversing a car.

Purchased at Kogan.com for $100.00.

Kogan 7 " wireless reversing camera

published

This is a reasonable reversing camera for the price. Installation instructions though are vague and you really have to know what you are doing. One negative with this camera is the screen clips over your original rear view mirror so now you can only see whats behind you when you have the car in reverse gear and the camera is then activated, if you want to look in your rear view mirror while driving and just using the mirror in the new screen (as the camera is now not activated), it is fairly dark but manageable .
Another negative is the LED lights surrounding the camera that should come on when reversing at night, do not work!

Purchased in August 2020 at Kogan.com for $69.99.

Useless instructions, misleading product info.

published

It says simple installation, but it's not. The instructions are really useless. May a good price, but you are most likely going to end up paying alot more for someone to install it.

Purchased at Kogan.com for $51.00.

Don't waste your time

published

2 small details to consider:
1- It's not waterproof. 2 rainy days and it filled with water and humidity.
2- The screen doesn't turn on when you set the reverse. You have to turn it on manually (I think that is why they give you a remote control). If you want to make it automatically you have to wire the mirror to the reverse light on the back, throwing away the "wireless" meaning of wireless.

It is cheap, I think you get what you pay, but if you want a truly wireless waterproof rear camera, search for another model.

Purchased in December 2019 for $50.00.

Incomplete wiring diagram

published

I found the unit would not work without connecting the receiver to reversing light power via plus wire with the fuse fitted, beside the blue wire leading to the view screen. This requires power from the reverse light, Otherwise there is no power for the screen. This either requires you to find under dash power to the reverse light or run a wire to the rear of the car to power at the light, as I did. John Scott

Useless instructions and diagrams

published

I don't know yet weather the unit works well but as an electrical technician I can say the instructions and wiring diagrams are useless, even in the downloaded manual, as all or most other revieweres have also commented. The Mirror unit seems to have surplus wires and a fuse which don't show connections to anything.

Instructions not only Next to Useless but also Misleading

Reversing Camera, not all it's cracked up to be.

published

Pretty poor performance Kogan. The bloody thing is no where near wireless. If you have better owners manual/installation instructions, why would you not include them with the unit? I have installed mine, it took well over an hour to effect the "wireless installation" and the unit will not even power up. The two transmitter units are powered up, but the screen just sits there and looks at me. All I can see in it is Me.

Camera is OK instruction and backup useless

published

Now that i have got the camera set correctly i am very happy with it
originally the image was mirror reversed and no one from technical support could tell me how to fix it ( No instruction manual is available for this product ) by trial and error i worked out how to fix it myself . Also this camera is not wireless as it still needs to be wired to ignition system and reverse lights

Useless instruct to install.

published

I would like to know were the red n black wires from the transmitter wire into. Understand the rest of the wiring. Would be nice for more detailed instructions. Lots lots lots lots lots lots lots lots lots lots lots lots lots lots lots lots lots lots of googling. No answers.

For a closed in ute, it makes life easier

published

I have a Mark 2 ranger with a closed in tray so having a reversing camera certainly makes life easier when parking, you cant see smaller cars so you've got no Idea how close you are to them. With the camera you know exactly were they are. There are certainly better ones on the market but this does do the job. If your going to fit it yourself you do need a bit of electrical skills and know a bit about your cars wiring. Main issue they have that Kogan need to look into is the Mirror, it falls off after a couple of weeks and once its lost the staying power that's it, I drilled through the top and fitted a couple of retaining screws which know keeps it in place. Value for money its not bad.

Detailed wiring diagram and instructions or Kogan reverse camera ALSO KNOWN AS ARV43M (gator).

published

I found on Tdj.com.au the detailed install information for this product which is also sold as the ARV43M.
Absolutely Fantastic, this is what should be in the box from Kogan.
I have only just found and downloaded/printed these out and now I’m off to work so I won’t get to use them for another week or so.

I am confused have a wiresless 4.3 rear view reverse camera. Instructions are very vague and wiring diagram is confusing. I get that the rear camera transmitter must be wired to the backing lights. As for the mirror the receiver has a splitter providing 12 volts to the mirror. What I am confused by is in the diagram the receiver is showing wires to backing lights. I take it these are not needed as the unit is wireless and why would one want to run wires to the back the care as this defeats the object of the exercise
