The Subaru back up camera automatically turns on when the vehicle is placed in reverse. In vehicles with navigation, the image appears on the navigation screen. In vehicles without, the image appears in the rearview mirror. Drivers still should check around their vehicles before backing up.
Back up cameras help drivers navigate into and out of tight parking spots by providing an unobstructed view of the back of the vehicle. According to Edmonds.com, numerous estimates have shown that back up cameras prevent accidents. The Subaru back up camera is standard on several 2016 models, including the Legacy, Outback and Impreza.
