If you’ve managed to get this far then if your like me, you’ll be feeling pretty pleased with yourself! These DIY projects are good fun but in my experience working on a car is always a little more tricky than the internet lets on. Actually, it’s exactly the same for me with plumbing issues also! Even those small jobs that should be an easy quick fix or configuration swiftly mushroom into a whole heap of trouble. The time that a leaking tap in the bathroom decided to flood the place (just as I was working on fixing the leak!) being an absolute prime example! 😉
At this stage then you should have managed to install the camera and given it a quick test. Hopefully everything is working as it should be and your almost good to go. However, before your released onto the general public with your new system it’s a good idea to configure the camera properly.

The video above brings you through the process of configuring your newly installed camera.
How do I configure the backup camera?
The easiest place to configure the device is in an empty parking lot. The furthest parking spots away from a shopping centre should also usually suffice – it’s also a good way of passing the time whilst your other half is in the mall;)
Position your car close to a parking spot making sure that the lines are visible on the screen of the sat nav. On your Garmin device select the following:
- Guidance Lines
- Adjust Guidance Lines
Setting Up Additional Cameras
Did you know that it’s possible to have up to 4 cameras paired to your device. This will provide you with better visibility around the vehicle. If you purchase the additional cameras separately then each camera will need to be paired individually. If on the other hand, you purchased the set as a whole then the cameras will already be paired. To be honest it’s not that much of a big deal to pair the cameras with your device as the procedure is fairly straightforward.
In order to pair a new camera with your device you should take the following steps. Turn on your Garmin sat nav device and choose the following options
- Backup Camera
- Add New Camera
