Rear View Safety’s WiFi Backup Camera System Reviewed RVS-020813


Hello and welcome to another backup camera review here at the Bluetooth Backup Camera site. Today we are taking a look at Rear View Safety’s wifi backup camera system.  The RVS-020813 model has received mixed reviews, but for the price it’s worth a look.

The Positives:

  • The wifi is quick to connect when the transmitter is turned on.
  • Works with both Android and iPhone. Very few other models do. (Click here to find another).
  • The product is fairly easy to install because it’s wireless.  To get a good idea of what is involved see the installation video on our homepage.
  • The Appstore has the app named Govue. You can download and check it out for free.
  • Easy to turn on and off the transmitter.
  • Can be powered using the standard power plug in the car, so you don’t need to hook it up to the rearview backup light. (This makes installation much easier!)
  • Camera is weather proof. (Although always check for cracks before installing).

You can find the RVS-020813 model at a discount here.


  • The app displays the image does not fit as well as it could on a iPhone screen.
  • You may need to pinch and zoom to get the best picture. (not ideal)
  • The signal is not for larger vehicles, so I’d consider this iPhone backup camera here if you have a larger SUV, truck, or RV.
  • From start to finish it takes about ten seconds to connect your phone to the camera. (This is fairly long compare to other more expensive models).
  • The app must be turned on to work, and doesn’t automatically open. (Again other models more expensive models automatically open.)
  • As mentioned in the reviews this model has been given mixed reviews.


Why purchase the RVS-020813 backup camera?

Price point! There are very cheap wifi backup cameras like this one here, and there are other more expensive cameras like this one here and here.  But this camera is the only one in the range of one hundred dollars. So if that is all your budget can fit, then this is the option that works the best for you.  Otherwise I would suggest the EasyHitch iPhone backup camera here or the wired Android camera by Brandmotion.


Rear View Safety’s WiFi Backup Camera System is a decent choice, but suffers from the same problem many other products that are mid-tier.  Spending just a bit more is going to get you a much better product.
