Rear View Safety recently introduced the RVS-3710-DVR 7″ Digital Quad View Color Monitor with Built-in DVR , one of the first new products of the year for the Elkhart, Indiana, company. The monitor assists with turning, backing up and any tricky driving, in addition to recording all cameras connected.
The monitor includes a GPS antenna used to log the vehicle's position and speed as well as an easy-to-use touch screen for navigating the menu and changing options, according to a company press release.

The monitor also has a USB 2.0 interface. This is used to easily backup footage and for system upgrades. An adjustable G-sensor safeguards important footage with override protection.
