Question
For my maruti swift dzire, I have a reversing camera fitted beneath the rear bumper and the monitor on the central rear view mirror. At night the vision in the monitor while reversing is not clear. Moreover I find that the rear view mirror cannot be moved to adjust the driver's view because of the monitor mounted on it. Would you reccommend a better solution for this problem of unclear image and the inability to move the monitor mounted rear view mirror to the desired positions? I would also like to know whether bumper mounted sensore are better?

Hi,
The problem of uclear image is due to poor lighting available during night and also depends on quality of camera. If needed the monitor can be mounted on adjustable base. Fitting of sensors does cover whole bumper.In monitor you can get indication with beam showing safe distance from any possible obstacle. As the movement of vehicle in reverse is much lesser fitting of rear bumper cameras is optional and depends upon expertise of the driver.It can be managed with good looking at rearview mirror in cabin.However fitting of camera or sensors does help to avoid hitting of obstacles while taking reverse and helps to gauge distance from rear side vehicles.To choose one of Sensor or Camera, Fitting of camera is better as it gives better images.

Hi Shiva nice advise and one more thing he already having a camera on his car.View definitely depend on the quality of camera and the rear illumination.Easy way is fix an extra reverse light.You may shift the monitor to dash for easy view.
