NAV-TV says its new Sonata-Cam provides the only way to add a backup camera to a Hyundai Sonata with a navigation radio (if you didn’t order the backup camera when you purchased the car).
The Sonata-Cam turns the dash screen into a monitor for the backup camera.
Only about 10 percent of Sonatas sold with navigation systems also include back up cameras from the factory. That option costs $990 for the harness plus $299 for the camera and $450 for a module and, said NAV-TV.
The Sonata-Cam comes with a plug and play harness, kit and camera for $599. You can buy the system without the camera for $499.
Almost half of non-traffic fatalities in kids under age 15 are caused by backover accidents, according to non-profit group Kids and Cars.
About 18,000 Sonatas sell a month presently.
NAV-TV also recently introduced a Volvo-Cam back up camera kit.
