The CH-RVMAHD72 is a clip-on style monitor which goes over an existing rear-view mirror and with a 7” LCD it is an excellent choice for caravan owners wanting the best quality vision from the back of their van to see the traffic behind them while driving. The monitor is easily removable when not in use for viewing video as it has a spring loaded bracket system so by lifting from the bottom against the spring tension, it just lifts off but it can be left in place and used as a normal mirror.
As the monitor is in the normal mirror location where most drivers will glance to check rear traffic, this monitor can be used as an eMirror where a rear camera is streaming video constantly and depending on the camera being used, this can be almost the same as normal mirror vision and will feel completely natural to most drivers.
When used as an eMirror, users will not normally use this as a mirror and so the most common version has dark glass which is less reflective, this is the CH-RVMAHD72D.
If being used mainly for reverse camera use and otherwise needs to be like a normal mirror, the CH-RVMAHD72S has silver glass which is like a standard mirror when not operating with the camera shown.
Clip-on monitors are popular for caravanning for this reason but there can be significant differences between brands and models. The CH-RVMAHD72 has a high resolution LCD with 1024 x 600 pixels which suits the Hybrid camera range with 720P HD video but will work with most standard definition cameras as well although cameras with 420TVL or lower may not display properly.
This monitor has 2 standard AV inputs to suit caravan and commercial type cameras with 4 pin connections or can have a CH-4FRCAS RCA adaptor added to suit a reversing camera if required.
The monitor can be operated by using the trigger but as many users will already have a factory fitted reverse camera displayed in the dash head unit the trigger is often not used and should not be connected.
