Reversing Camera Kit (model no. CM50)
No more backing into things with a Polaris reversing camera.
A Polaris reversing camera not only makes reversing a breeze but it ensures that you can see clearly behind your vehicle when reversing.
Believe it or not but 11% of accidents involve collision while reversing. Most of the time this is due to poor visibility and miscalculation (Budgetdirect.com.au, 2018). The more vehicles fitted with reversing cameras, the more chance that this figure will drop.
Not only that but a reverse camera could potentially save a life or prevent injury. Surprisingly, three accidents occur involving children in home driveways every week (A parent’s guide to kidsafe roads, 2016).
What kind of vehicles will the CM50 reversing camera kit suit?
This kit will suit all different types of vehicles but we would fit this kit mainly to 4WD’s. Sedans, Utes, Vans and SUV’s
Will it suit a larger vehicle like a caravan or motorhome?
It sure will, but we have kits dedicated to these applications:

Where does the camera normally mount?
We try and mount it as close to the number plate as possible. If your number plate is off to the side, we will still mount the camera close to the number plate. It has a 170 degree wide angle view so it gives you a great view even if the camera is mounted off centre.
If you wish to know where we would normally mount the camera for your specific vehicle, please call us on 1300 555 514 and speak to one of our experienced staff members.
Where do you normally mount the monitor?
We will normally fit this monitor on the right hand side of the dash near the driver if there is enough room. Otherwise it will go into the centre pointing towards the driver.
I don’t want anything on my dash, what are my other options?
No worries at all, if you don’t want anything on your dash, you might want to look at our other options:
I want a dash mount but i think 5″ is a little too small for me, do you have any larger monitors?
Yes we have a 6.2″ reverse camera kit available
Can this monitor run all the time, not just in reverse?
Yes this is an option if you require. Just make sure whoever is installing it wires the power wires up to accessories power.
Can this monitor come on only when in reverse?
Yes, just make sure whoever is installing it wires the power up to the reversing lights.
Can I see this monitor in the sun?
The 5″ caravan reversing camera kit has a sunshade built into the screen to limit the amount of glare that will obstruct the visibility of the screen. In saying this, there will be different times of the day that might affect the visibility of the screen that cannot be avoided. However, there are some visual settings such as, brightness, colour and contrast that can be adjusted to suit different lighting conditions.
Can I get other cameras instead of the one that comes in the kit?
Yes, you can choose any of our cameras valued at $150.00 to come with this kit at no extra charge. When you order online, just write down the camera that you want in the notes section.
Is this system 12 or 24 volt?
The CM50 reversing camera will suit both 12 and 24 volt as a reducer is built into the monitor.
Can I install this system myself?
The system itself is not very complicated. Its just a matter of knowing where to run the cables, pulling your dash apart and finding power. If you feel like this is something you would be confident in, then yes you could install itself. If not, please give us a call on 1300 555 514 and we can recommend an installer for you.
Does Polaris install?
Yes we certainly do, please give us a call on 1300 555 514 to arrange a booking time.
