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, 2019). 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 EV05DC reversing camera kit suit?
We recommend this particular kit for customers that want a Rear Vision camera on the rear of a caravan, horse float, camper trailer or slide on camper.
How big is the screen in the EV05 reversing camera kit?
The actual screen size is 7” and the monitor dimensions are: 18cm (W) x 12.1cm (H) x 2.41cm (D)
Sunshade depth: 4.5cm
How does the monitor mount?
The EV05 Reversing camera kit comes with a dash mounting bracket. There is no drilling required to mount the monitor, it simply adheres with 3m double sided tape. We also sell an optional suction bracket if you prefer to stick it to your windscreen.
How many inputs does the EV05 have?
The EV05 reversing camera system has 3 camera inputs. If you require more than 3 camera inputs then it is possible when paired with suitable control boxes.
How much cable does this kit come with?
The 7″ Caravan Rear View Camera System comes with 4 lots of cables:
7 metre power cable – runs throughout the car.
2 metre car side DUAL WOZA cable – plugs into the 7 metre power cable and has a chrome socket on the other end that mounts on the back of the car.
2.5 metre coil cable (5PIN) -curly cord sits between car and caravan
10 metre caravan DUAL WOZA cable – Has a chrome socket on one end that mounts on the A frame and runs right to the end of the caravan where it splits into 2 leads so your dual camera can plug in.
What type of camera comes with the EV05DC reversing camera kit?
The EV05DC comes standard with a Dual Camera
What is the angle lens measurement on the cameras?
The dual camera has a 120 degree wide angle lens which is perfect for reversing. The other lens is 45 degrees which is great for long distance viewing
Where does the camera normally mount?
We normally mount the camera on a vertical surface in the middle towards the top of the motorhome. If you cannot mount it on a vertical surface then the bracket can be adjusted to mount on top of the motorhome looking down / out.
Can i add a reverse camera on my car?
Yes you certainly can. It is an extra $150.00 to add a car camera. Just select your desired camera from the car camera option and the price will adjust accordingly. If you don’t want a car camera, then leave the option as ‘no car camera required’ and the price will stay at $645.00 in checkout.
Car camera options include:
- 170 degree mini camera – Great for mounting on the rear of most vehicles (4WD’s, utes, sedans etc.)
- 170 degree number plate camera (great for mounting on the rear of most vehicles where the number plate is centered)
- 120 degree large black infrared camera (great for mounting on trailers, motorhomes, caravans or on the front of a vehicle with a bullbar)
- 120 degree white round camera (great for mounting on caravans & motorhomes)
- Universal Forward Vision Camera (great for mounting on the front of a vehicle)
What is a Dual WOZA Kit and why do i need it?
A WOZA kit is just another name for a Suzi coil kit. Think of the dual WOZA kit as an extension cable but it is broken up into 3 pieces so it can be installed into a car and trailer.
The dual WOZA kit is designed so that you can have 2 cameras on your caravan or trailer. It allows you to only have one curly cord running between car and caravan.
We do not recommend normal extension cables to run from the car to the caravan as these cables are neither waterproof, nor are they designed to be continuously unplugged.
Where do you normally mount the monitor?
We will normally fit this monitor in the centre of the dash pointing towards the driver.
Can this monitor run all the time, not just in reverse?
Yes this is an option if you require. Just make sure your installer wires the power wires up to accessories power.
Why is a dual camera better for rear vision, can’t i just have a single camera on the back of my caravan?
You can most definitely opt for a single camera on the back of your Caravan. The only issue with the single lens is that it is classed as a wide angle view.
The dual camera is used more for rear vision purposes. The main reason is because alot of wide angle lens cameras distort depth perception. You need a very narrow angle in order to view long distance (a fair distance down the road) and to judge how close vehicles are behind your vehicle.
This is where the 45 degree lens comes in handy. This type of angle lens is not ideal for reversing as it wont give you the wide angle however, it will give you more of a true perception of depth.
To give you an example lets say you are driving along and you see a car behind you in the monitor. Because of the wide angle lens, the car may look quite a distance away when in reality the car is actually quite close. However, with the 45 degree angle lens you should be able to make a better judgement because the perception of distance will be more accurate.
If you still wish to go for a cheaper alternative and only get the single camera lens then this is fine. You can still view the camera image while you are driving along, it may just take a little getting used to determining how close vehicles really are behind you.
Can this monitor come on only when in reverse?
Yes, the power cable has trigger wires available.
Can I see this monitor in the sun?
The 7″ 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.
Is this system 12 or 24 volt?
The EV05 reversing camera will suit both 12 and 24 volt as a reducer is built into the monitor.
I am buying a caravan and I want a Polaris camera, can I ask them to install your system?
Yes certainly, most caravan manufacturers are more than happy to comply with your request. Some might charge a small fee to run the cabling and mount the camera but it is definitely worth it to get this part installed while your caravan is being built.
Can I install this system myself?
The system itself is not very complicated. However, we wouldn’t recommend attempting to install the caravan part, perhaps leave that to a professional.
It is completely up to you though and It’s just a matter of knowing where to run the cables, pulling your dash/trim 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 get a quote or arrange a booking time.
How much does Polaris charge for installation?
We normally charge $400.00 to install the EV05DC rear vision camera kit.
How much warranty comes with this kit?
You have 2 years warranty so you can be rest assured that you have chosen a product with the support to back it.
Do you really test all your products before they are dispatched?
Yes 100%. Even though we are a small team, we want to make sure that you get a working product at your doorstep.
Do you have a Zipmoney option?
We sure do. For more information on how zipmoney works please visit www.zipmoney.com.au
