EchoMaster rolled out the Intellihaul 2.0 Trailering Camera System this week for Chevrolet and GMC dealerships.
This system was developed for Next Generation 2019 and up Light Duty and 2020 and up Heavy Duty Silverado and Sierra Trucks that are not available with the UVS High Definition Surround Vision Package.
Built with towing in mind, the system includes side blind spot cameras, a wireless trailer camera and an integrated smart graphical user interface. The smart graphical user interface is integrated into the factory screen and automatically activates cameras based on driver behavior – left and right turn signals, placing the vehicle in reverse. Manual camera activation is also available using the touch screen controls.
While towing in Silverado and Sierra trucks, the driver is presented with significant blind spot areas when driving, parking, and reversing. This system provides visibility into those blind spots to help improve the driver's situational awareness, enabling a safer and more informed driving experience.
The proprietary mirror caps or pods, to house the high definition blind spot cameras, were engineered to match the factory side mirror color and texture. The camera housing will seamlessly integrate into the vehicle's side mirrors to provide more visibility into blind spots without adding any additional bulk to the vehicle.
The Graphical User Interface (GUI) was designed to have the same look and feel as the Next Generation 2019+ Light Duty and the 2020+ Heavy Duty Silverado and Sierra Trucks' factory head unit. GUI allows manual activation of all cameras, plus a split and multi-view screen option.
There are two versions of Intellihaul 2.0 Trailering Camera System. One version is developed specifically for Next Generation 2019+ Light Duty Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra Trucks and the other version for Next Generation 2020+ Heavy Duty Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra Trucks. The difference between the two versions is the factory matched side blind spot camera housing.

The Intellihaul 2.0 Trailering Camera System can support four cameras. The system includes two side blind spot cameras and a wireless trailering camera. You can add one additional camera to the system to customize it for your use – either a Front Camera or second Wireless Trailer Camera.
The optional front camera was designed to mount to the truck's front grill or bumper. The HD camera contains a Sony IMX 225 Sensor and provides a 170° viewing angle.
The camera can be set up to automatically activate based on driver speed or manually activated by the integrated touch screen GUI.
A high-definition Wireless Trailer Camera is included in the Intellihaul 2.0 Trailering Camera System. You also have the ability to add a second Wireless Trailer Camera if you choose.
The Wireless Trailer Camera includes a 2.4g Wireless AHD Camera and Receiver. Instead of grabbing power from the vehicle, the camera will hardwire to the trailer light for power. The camera can provide an automatic behind-trailer view when backing up or on demand anytime using the integrated touch screen GUI.
