How Backup Cameras Work And Why You Need One

Doug Smith Kia wants drivers to be informed about their vehicle's safety features, so we're going to tell you everything you need to know about backup cameras.

When you put your vehicle in reverse, a sensor turns on your backup camera. The rear-mounted backup camera transmits an image to your vehicle's infotainment system allowing you to see what's behind you. Many newer backup cameras display different colored lines on the display screen to help you travel in reverse and park in the tightest of parking spots. Backup cameras can also prevent accidents. It's difficult to see small children and animals in your rearview mirror. Having a backup camera could save the life of someone you love.

Remember to clean the lens of your backup camera regularly. Poor image quality is often the result of a dirty camera lens, and it could impair visibility.
