2012 Honda CR-V: Multi-Talented Backup Camera

August 28, 2012


As you can see, the backup camera in our CR-V is not your average point-and-shoot. It has three available options for viewing the bumper you're about to run into.

Is this overkill?

Seems like it, although I'm sure there are situations where that fisheye view on the left comes in handy. So far, the standard setting in the middle seems to do the trick for me on most occasions.

I will admit that I'm becoming a bit too used to such cameras when it comes to parallel parking. It makes it so easy you barely have to think, and we all know where that eventually gets you.
