Retrofitting the reversing camera on the car radio: step-by-step
Connecting the reversing camera to an existing car radio: Before we explain how you can connect a reversing camera to an existing car radio, we would like to give you an important recommendation: Buy your reversing camera from a German dealer. The reason for this is that there can always be reliability problems with electronics. For example, should the camera cause a fire in your vehicle, it would be difficult or even impossible to hold the foreign provider liable. In such cases, it is better to play it safe and buy from a German provider.
A reversing camera is a practical and useful addition to your vehicle, especially if you can use it with your existing car stereo. In order to connect a reversing camera to your existing car radio, it needs an AV video input. In this blog post, we will show you how to do this step by step.
Step 1: Check if your car radio has an AV video input Before you start the installation, make sure that your car radio has an AV video input. This enables the connection between the camera and the radio.
Step 2: Choosing a reversing camera Select a suitable reversing camera that suits your vehicle and meets the necessary requirements. Pay attention to quality and compatibility with your car radio.
Step 3: Mount the rear view camera Mount the rear view camera in the desired location on your vehicle, usually at the rear or near the license plate light. Follow the manufacturer's instructions.
