Hi all, I'm looking at maybe getting a rear view camera fitted, but does any one know if it will work on my MB head unit ( post facelift R171, unit has sat nat & SD is above disc drive, so guessing it maybe the NG 2.5 version). If it does work, where do i need to connect it to on the unit..

Thanks in advance.

I should add that data card reads 512 COMAND APS WITH DVD CHANGER if that helps.

Try the green Fakra connector on the back. Never used it,so not sure but might work.

And for your dismantle, check out the diy section. Pretty sure there is one for the facia (in bodywork/panels) & possibly one for removing unit itself.

Here is a write up of the install I did this and works great, you will need to hook up a DAS unit to program the head unit to know it has the camera installed and to turn on when you put your shift selector in reverse.

Regards

Bill

PS

Added a PDF with screen shots on the steps to Activate via DAS

On a final note, can any of the UK based folks recommend a good reversing camera that i can use ( PAL & mirror image so that i displays the objects the right way round etc).... Flea bay and the other sites don't give enough info....
