The Mazda 3 has a backup camera. The car will make this feature available when it detects that you are backing up. The typical role of a rearview camera is to assist the driver by showing them what’s behind their vehicle when reversing and improving visibility for drivers who have trouble seeing out of the back window. Mazda 3 owners can purchase an optional rear view monitor to replace the standard monitor in order to use the camera as well.
# Can backup cameras be installed on older cars?
Actually, it is very common for drivers to install a backup camera on older cars. Since you can purchase a camera separately from the rest of the vehicle, you can often find and buy one that fits your car’s make and model. This might be your only option if the car does not already have the feature built in.
# How do you use the Mazda backup camera?
The Mazda 3 backup camera will provide a daytime view of what’s behind the vehicle when it is on. There is another feature that allows the camera to turn off once the car’s engine is no longer running. The video from this camera can be streamed to your smart phone through your car’s dashboard.
# Does this feature work on all Mazda 3 models?
The Mazda 3 backup camera is available for current models and a few of its previous versions.
