    Reversing camera?

    Is there a simple way to plug a reversing camera into the rns e? I didnt this with my x5 and was easy peasy. I know you can buy good cameras off ebay for not very much. Just wondering if the screen can handle it and if there is an input?

    I wanted it too, but some people are saying it doesn't work with a mk2 rns e. If you have mk1 (CD/TV) here is a guide for the A4, you do it the same way

    Needs a media adapter, plus wiring run into bootlid of course, takes a little while to run in etc.

    hmmm, media adaptor? That an Audi thing?

    I'm feel sure it'll fit Nige! I've measured my boot release handle and it's the same dimensions ...I'll give you a definitive answer when it gets here though.

    No there are aftermarket ones from kufatec or on ebay, you will need this to connect camera to the rns, assuming you have an rns already

    If not I have some MK1's at a very reasonable price.

    Thanks for the offer mate... but I decided to go aftermarket in the end.

    Pioneer Avic-F940BT. already have a reversing camera too, but I don't like it fitted in my numberplate light (I heard the bulb heat burns the board out) so I'm replacing it with the above pre-emtively.

    Came across this on e-bay ...I know nothing of the seller, but he's got 100% positive feedback on over 700 items.

    I won't be bidding as mine arrived today & the quality is spot on! so check your fitting & may the best man win.
