2011 Honda Odyssey Touring: Three-View Back-Up Camera

May 09, 2011

Our long-term 2011 Honda Odyssey Touring has a back-up camera, of course. But our Odyssey goes one step beyond most new back-up camera systems by adding another view.

There's also a Top View like on some other modern cars like our long-term Hyundai Equus that's available just in case your child is taking a nap underneath your vehicle.
(Just tap the Navi controller knob to toggle through the views.)

And there's a Wide View available. If you compare the Normal and the Wide views, there's only a slight difference.

I didn't try to compare the Normal and Wide in a busy mall parking lot where there may be some added usefulness. But they look very similar to me.

Is the number of back-up camera views going to be like the razor blade war with 2, then 3, 4, 5, and now 6 blades offered?

We'll see.

What do you think? What do you like in a back-up camera?
