Yes, the Honda site specs are very unclear, but if you check the PDF brochure somewhere, it tells you so:(1) Is the backup camera available on the EX-L _without_ NAV or RES?
Great advice. I normally do not post the please search in reply to a first post on the forum by a new comer (unless I am in a really bad mood) but I can always use a helping hand of folks like you who help us direct the nubies to search.Welcome to Odyclub dh37. Since you are new here, I'm going to give you a word of advice that the moderator dvpatel normally gives. Do a search before starting a new thread. Often, your questions and inquiries have already been asked and discussed.

I wasn't a scoffer. Every accident I have ever had that was my fault (except for one in high school), and a few accidents that were not my fault would likely never have happened if backup cameras were universally available. Also, with the recent trend to reduce visibility out the vehicle (including the 2011 Odyssey), they are becoming even more important. Yes, they are must-haves.The back-up camera is one of those items I would have scoffed in the past. Now it'll be a must have (if available) on future vehicles.
My wife and I use the Wide Mode Exclusively. It distorts the video but being able to see the side really helps when pulling out of a parking spot and you can see cars or people approaching the vehicle. Using Normal mode, you see what's instantly behind you but don't know if someone is approaching unless you turn actually around (which is what you SHOULD DO int he first place). But sometimes when it's dark, it's difficult to see anything and the wide camera angles help aid in ensuring it is all clear.Yup, the EX-L comes with a back-up camera. It only has "normal" view, which I find perfectly sufficient.
