The auto industry is as technologically advanced as ever and keeps taking strides every day. One of the best advances in recent years is the backup camera. It doesn’t seem as fancy as some other developments, like in-car entertainment, but it helps you get from A to B with no accidents. That’s the whole point of a car in the first place! An overwhelming percentage of accidents occur when the car is in reverse because the driver just can’t see what’s back there. A rearview camera eliminates this problem by feeding video from the back bumper to the front of the car. Once the driver can see where the vehicle is going, the odds of a collision drop dramatically. Audio Express offers several products that can keep you, your car and those around you safe.   Kenwood CMOS-320 Rear-View Camera It might be impossible to find a vehicle reverse camera more advanced than this one. It has a wide field of vision and offers five different views for the driver to choose from. Look through the options with the click of a button, which is installed on the dash. No matter what kind of vehicle you’re in, you won’t be missing anything behind you with the Kenwood CMOS-320.   App-tronics Smartvision Rear View Mirror App-tronics looked at the vehicle reversing camera and knew they could make it even better. Often a rearview camera feeds video to the dash of the car, but you already need to look at your mirror when you’re backing up. It makes too much sense to put both your sources for visual input in the same place. The backup camera sends video directly to a 5-inch HD touchscreen that is in the mirror itself. This is a great option for drivers who don’t want to change anything around on their vehicle’s dash. The SmartVision rear view mirror has Bluetooth capability for hands-free calling to increase car safety even more. The features don’t end there – you can also use it to stream music!   Accele RVC1300L Reverse Backup Camera This is an excellent option for those who want a backup camera on a budget. This camera is small, water resistant and can even be embedded in the bumper to give a discrete look like manufacturers use on built-in backup sensors. You don’t have to break the bank to enhance the safety features of your vehicle. When it comes to adding safety features to your car, every little bit helps. Just use the best service around at our Audio Express locations. If you have any questions or want to know more about our low-cost installations, send us a message!

4 Collision Avoidance Systems That Make You a Safer Driver

It’s getting easier to avoid collisions all the time as cars evolve, and the auto industry has never been more focused on safety than it is today. While modern cars are coming with features designed to help the driver steer clear of collisions, there are also options available to make your current vehicle safer to drive. There are four essential products that we’d recommend installing on every vehicle to decrease the risk of accidents. Backup Cameras A shocking amount of all accidents happen while backing up. This is partially because drivers aren’t used to operating a car in reverse, but primarily due to limited visibility. Installing backup cameras to your vehicle greatly reduces the risk that you will hit something while in reverse. The cameras on the rear of the vehicle feed to a screen in the front of the car, giving you a close look at what’s behind the car. Because the cameras are well below the rear window, they enable the driver to notice things that there would otherwise be no chance of seeing. In some cases, you can even get the monitor to be a part of your rearview mirror. This option gives drivers the ability to check their mirror and see the feed from the backup camera at the same time. Dash Cameras While backup cameras are primarily to reduce collisions, dash cameras can come in handy if a crash does unfortunately occur. A dash cam can save a driver a lot of money on insurance claims, or in severe cases can help the driver in court. Modern dash cams film with enough frames per second to create a smooth, high-quality video. Some dash cams will also record other information. They can use GPS to determine speed, location, and even the direction in which the car is traveling. In the event of an accident, some dash cameras will automatically detect the incident, and mark that portion of the video for easy viewing. Parking Assistance Sensors Parking assist sensors fulfill much of the same role as backup cameras. While they are not quite as capable, because they don’t provide a visual to the driver, they are also less expensive. These sensors communicate with the driver using beeps and an LED display to represent how much space the car has between the bumper and the nearest objects. This helps the driver gauge distance when backing up, and detect objects or people that are hidden from view behind the car. Blind Spot Camera The rear of a vehicle is not a car’s only location with limited visibility. There are nearly constant accidents caused because a driver can’t see everything to the side of the vehicle when switching lanes. Blind spot cameras can be mounted to the side mirrors to dramatically increase visibility and safety in these situations. The camera will automatically activate when a turn signal is turned on, and give the driver a great look at an otherwise hard to see an area.
