NAV-TV rear camera kit for Mercedes Metris

NAV-TV launched a new rear view camera solution for the new Mercedes Metris van.

The Metris was introduced in North America in October at a base price of about $29,000.  A backup camera is NOT standard and it requires users buy a $1,540 package to upgrade to the camera option.

NAV-TV’s rear camera solution for the 2016 Metris is fully plug and play. requiring no cutting of factory wires or dealership programming, NAV-TV said.

Over 60 percent of back up incidents involve a larger size vehicle such as a truck or SUV, said kidsandcars.org, And blind spots, or areas that a driver cannot see into with mirrors alone, are the main contributing factor to most vehicle accidents under 15 miles per hour.

NAV-TV said,  “With the lack of side view and rear view camera assist, the Metris is extremely difficult to operate safely, especially in reverse. Although Mercedes may have ‘missed the bus’ when it comes to standard and available video safety features for the 2016 Metris, fortunately there is now an option to add these potentially life-saving options from NAV-TV.”

The NAV-TV interface does not include the camera. It comes in three trim levels:
