    Reverse Camera

    I know its been done before, but i installed my reverse camera today, all wired in and auto switching as it should, very please with the picture quality.
    heres a quick pic to show you how neat the camera is.
    obviously the angle of the pic is so you can see it all but from the rear of the car at normal height it is hardly visable.

    LOTS DONE, LOTS SPENT !!!!

    you will have to bare in mind that its now pitch black out there so you only get a pic of what is lit by the reverse light alone, and this was taken with my phone, i will take a better one tomorrow in the day and post it up.
    the grid is like an overlay, i guess to help with judging the distance.

    prices vairey on the cameras, think kufatech sell them and audi do oem ones obviously, ebay also offers varients, so the range from around 30 to 130.
    an interface is also required for the rns-e to recieve video signals, there around 90 to 150.
    fitting it wasnt to bad, running the cables to the front is always fun, getting the number plate out is a pain as the screws holding them in are ****e.
    vagcom is also required, along with repair wires, connecter blocks etc etc.

    i can offer fitting or supply and fit if anyones interested, obviously this will depend on what kit you already have in your car at presant.

    That is very smart, much better than having reversing sensors.

    Couldn't agree more! Get it washed you slacker!

    But seriously, the camera looks rather impressive mate. If I had RNS i'd be up for getting this rather than retrofitting parking sensors, but doubt i'll personally do it. I'm quite impressed by the picture quality I must admit. I think you mentioned it in first post, but I take it that the camera automatically comes on as soon as you put it in reverse?

    Good work 1wheel that is a good mod and defo better than parking sensors as you dont have to have those silly little holes in your bumper,

    The module that goes with the RNSE to make it show the picture is that all the module does or does it have any other functions eg letting you put say a PS2 or DVD player into your RNSE?

    hi rob,
    the media interface ( http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...=STRK:MEWAX:IT )

    its sole purpose is to allow a composite video /audio input into the rns-e.
    how you choose to use it is up to you.
    i have dvd, ps2 etc through it.
    i have also played about with my wiring and have added spliters etc to allow multi ins/outs as obviously i have several inputs and outputs to rns-e and each headrest screen.

    Cheers Lea

    Interesting, thats a nice little addition. Might have to look into getting one of those as i do like the rear camera thing you have done (would be very useful on my Avant with my parking skills). Plus if it gives the versatility of adding other inputs it makes it much better value.

    All comes down to the fitting of it once again as running a cable from the RNSE to the back of the car sounds like lots of fun or a complete nightmare if your me

    does that interface only have one video in socket? how do you split the video in to allow 2 sources such as camera and dvd?
