Blaupunkt introduces micro rear view camera

This is apparently the company's first foray into this market. It's a really tiny camera that should be mountable just about anywhere on the rear of the vehicle.

Even better yet, it should be fairly easy to integrate into any existing display or navigation system. They also took it a step further, and made it so that if you use it in conjunction with some of their TravelPilot units it will automatically activate the backup camera when the vehicle is shifted into reverse which is a feature you usually have to have professionally or factory installed.

The kit comes with the camera and both 2 and 8 meter cables with 3.5mm jacks at the end so you can connect it to just about anything that will accept an external video source. No word on price or availability yet, other than some time this quarter.
