Rear view cameras come standard in new cars these days, but what if the car you are driving doesn't have one?
If you're not ready to invest in a new car, you can buy and install an aftermarket camera in your older car.
Some dash cam sets have a screen that straps over your existing rear view mirror. In addition to being a mirror, it displays video from the rear camera.
If your car has an infotainment system with a screen, you can also purchase and retrofit a new screen with a camera.
There's also a wireless smartphone option.
"This is a wireless rear view camera that plugs into your smartphone. It does have a small battery in it, so this is a completely self-contained unit," Mel Yu, Consumer Reports Car Expert explained.
These aftermarket options range anywhere from $22 to $600.
