Pro's and Con's of using these two ICU Car Cameras

The Blackbird ICU Car Camera vs. the Drone Wireless ICU Car Camera

The Drone Wireless ICU Car Camera is very stable and strong, as the super magnets hold it onto the vehicle like it is bolted on. Strong enough to withstand 100 mph speeds, yet it can still be removed easily by pulling on it. The Wireless and removable feature is very handy and nice to have since you can place it anywhere on your vehicle. The only 2 things of concern are:

1. You will need to periodically charge the Drone (approximately 1-2 times a month), and I recommend to turn off the camera power whenever possible to conserve battery life. The Li-on Battery has a typical life of 3-5 years with minimal use. The Drone does include a power remote so you don’t have to remove the Camera just to turn it off and on.

2. Due to possible theft you don’t want to leave it on the car outside over night, but parking in a private garage would be fine, and you wouldn’t want to just leave it on your vehicle if you go inside a store or something for a long period of time. As this is a totally new product It is very probable almost no one will know what it is and won’t even realize it is removable camera.

Other than those two things the Drone Wireless ICU Car Cam System is a great product and will surpass your expectations.

As for the Blackbird ICU Car Cam System this is a product of more convenience for a user in the long run, which you can install and never really think about it again because you don’t have to charge a battery and the Camera securely mounts to the vehicle with a bolt for anti-theft. The Blackbird will turn on and off with your vehicle’s ACC power so basically every time you start your car and turn it off the Blackbird and monitor will correspond. Also the Blackbird has both a wide-angled lens (120 deg.) for blind spots and a standard angle lens (75 deg.) for “real world” view directly behind your vehicle.

The installation for the Blackbird is not complex but it is time consuming if you have never installed this type of product. Installation is comparable to a backup cam but I have designed it to install even easier than that. Installation will entail removal of the vehicle roof liner so that the underside of the roof is accessible to run the cable from the antenna hole to the rear view mirror. This may include removal of one side of the vehicle’s interior paneling, door weather stripping, etc. and connection to power source such as the fuse box or cigarette lighter wiring. Typical installation could be 2-4 hours depending on experience and knowledge of such installation.

Installation of the ICU Video Monitor will be the same for all ICU Car Cameras with one exception, The Wireless System includes a cigarette lighter adapter so you can power up the Video Monitor from your cigarette lighter. Otherwise you can connect the included Video Monitor power to a power source such as the fuse box or cigarette lighter wiring.

Either camera is a great choice, I would say that convenience is the main factor for choosing. Remember also that the Drone only has a wide-angled lens (120 deg.) for blind spots, while the Blackbird has both a wide-angled lens (120 deg.) for blind spots and a standard angle lens (75 deg.) for “real world” view directly behind your vehicle.

Your REAR VIEW MIRROR is old technology – upgrade your car to the ICU Car Cam System!

Typical rear view mirrors are dangerous to use because you can't see very much behind you and you can't see your blind spots at all.
Typical rear view mirrors are dangerous

Like the VCR and the Walkman your typical rear view mirror is a dead technology. Actually your mirror has always been very limited and dangerous for driving in traffic, but they haven’t changed for a 100 years. Rear view mirrors are dangerous because you can’t see very much in your mirror when you have to look through your car seats, passengers, and little rear windows. All of those factors together mean you have a small, limited angle view of traffic on the freeway and streets, not to mention pedestrians and bicycles in parking lots. When using your rear view mirror and side view mirrors you still have to turn your head around to see your blind spots, taking your eyes off the road for extended periods, this is another dangerous factor when driving. DON’T WORRY! There is a way to update your car easily, it’s also affordable, the ICU Car Cam System. The ICU Car Cam Systems are a full-time REAR VIEW DRIVING car camera and video monitor you can add to any vehicle. These systems allow you to see behind your car and in your blind spot, all at once using a wide-angle camera that connects to a nice big video screen attached to your rear view mirror. This technology means you keep your eyes on the road instead of turning your head, and you only have to look a way for an instance to look at the monitor right in front of you. We have many camera systems with different options and features for you to choose from, to fit any car or driver.

ICU Car Camera provides excellent night time driving


The ICU Car Camera provides excellent night time driving views because of low light sensitivity. The more light, the brighter and more clear the view. For example a well lit parking lot at night looks just about as bright as day time driving on the rear view video monitor. This is a much better view than a backup camera or rear view mirror can provide, because the ICU Car Camera is on top of the car where you see the most of your surroundings!
