    I hope the handle on my cabriolet is the same........... Have got a Kenwood camera that will fit that handle nicely unless the Audi one is cheap ???

    Nice write up and I agree that getting the cables through the original grommets is a pain in the arse

    I just went for the Audi camera to keep things simple and OEM. I think it was about 100.

    Yes as long as your running the latest software version. 0550 should be OK, 0650 will defintely work as thats what I have installed.

    Great Mod... Will the new handle work on a B6 saloon, do we think?

    Also, with the IMA plus, can I have 2x AV inputs and the reversing camera, or one and reversing camera?

    I imagine it will fit a B6, could defintley be modded to fit if it didnt.

    The IMA+ can run 2x AV devices in addition to the camera.

    Cool - at the moment I have a Dietz 1417 with a PS2 connected. The video goes through a Dietz splitter to the rear screens. What I would want to end up with is the IMA+ for the reversing camera and PS2 and eventually the homedock deluxe for ipod integration - the RNSe can control the homedock, can't it??

    Oh, and finally does it come up as AV1 & 2 therefore on the source selection?

    Yes the IMA+ gives full control of the homedock through the RNS-E buttons.

    Not sure how it comes as AV1 AV2 etc as I only have the homedock and the reverse camera. I imagine that would be the case though.

    Really, so the a4 is nice on the 2ltr without 4wd then, hows the corners/roundabouts?

    I had the S4 B6 avant & miss that, but I certainly dont miss the damn mpg thats for sure, lol, really thinking about the A4 3ltr quattro tdi to buy which is a B7 with everything I want & also I can retro the others it hasnt got which is almost nothing.

    Camera sounds good for her even if it has got front/rear pdc, lol, lol, anything to help her parking is a bonus, maybe fat metal bumpers would help.

    It handles nicely enough for me. I didnt want the extra expense/complication of Quattro. I dont drive anywhere near the cars limits on the road so its perfect for me. I had it Bluefinned for a little more overtaking/motorway power.

    Its certainly not 'fast' by any means, but I have my bike and track days for speed so its not a problem for me.

    I 'think' it might as I recall seeing the A6 camera fitted to an A3.

    Reverse Camera Trouble

    Hi, I don't know if anyone can help, but I've just installed a reverse camera on my A4, which is connected via my TV Tuner AV input 1 which all links to the RNS-e.

    The picture from the camera is great when you manually select AV1 on the head unit, but if I connect the reverse signal wire to the RSFL connection at the back of the RNS'e, select reverse the camera picture appears, but the picture is all stretched and distorted.

    It's a real pain as the picture stays like that until you reboot the the RNS-e even if you select the standard TV Tuner channel.

    The firmware is 0600, all settings are PAL, tried looking through VAG-COM but couldn't find anything obvious.

    Can anybody help please!!!

    I thought you had to use the Kufatec IMA+ to get it all working properly. Could be wrong though.

    You dont say what camera your trying to use?

    Could be confusion between PAL signals (tuner) and NTSC signals (camera)?

    Might not be a simple fix as this was never a factory option.

    Going to 0650 software is certainly worth a try though, but I thought you only needed to be above 0550 for the auto-switch to work.

    i have another problem as i have only one av input to the rns-e, im running a seperate dvd player and have a splitter, one to the rns-e and two to the headrests, disconnected the ps2 ( kids dont really use it much ) which was running through the dvd player on the line in, therefore i just selected on the dvd player what i wanted to veiw. nicked the ps2 feed for the camera which is fine but obviously connecting to the RSFL for auto switching causes me a problem, it is showing the dvd screen unless i select line in to get cam pic.
    do you think i could split the signal going into the ima which would display the cam providing the dvd was off.
    does this make sense mate.

    Quality Job mate !! Lovin your work !





    How much for everything then ? I have the RNS-E and think it would be a perfect mod for the wife to have in the car so it doesn't get pranged ! LOL

    Obviously, all the Audi bits are purchased from Audi or another VAG specialist

    Kufatech ones purchased from their website ??

    Do you know if it would be possible to activate the screen to default onto the camera when reverse gear is selected, using the same signal switch that the rear parking sensors use ??
