installer or an authorized dealer. This product is only for use in vehicles with 1ꢀVDC negative ground only.

brake is engaged. It is illegal in most states for the driver to view video while the vehicle is in motion.
To prevent damage or injury:

. Do not remove the top or bottom covers of the unit.
. Do not install the unit in a spot exposed to direct sunlight or excessive heat or the possibility of water splashing.
. Do not subject the unit to excessive shock.
. When replacing a fuse, only use a new one with the prescribed rating. Using a fuse with the wrong rating may
cause the unit to malfunction.
. To prevent short circuits when replacing a fuse, disconnect the wiring harness first.
