Adding a Back-up Camera

OK-

I have been reading about a lot of MMI modifications. I did not order the Driver Assist package as I did not feel I needed it but a back up camera might make things easier. So...

Does anyone know where the factory installed camera is located? Also, does anyone know if the wiring harness is in place up to the dash and perhaps hooked up to the MMI as well?

Thanks!

John

The camera is just above the license plate frame on a piece between the license plate lights. I imagine the wiring is already there, but will require some coding (not hard I think)...

I'd also be curious about this. I don't really need the camera, per se, as the car is dead easy to park but it would be nice to have.

I know this because I have the parts here to be fitted on Friday

It will need coding too.

About 2hrs work I believe.

Parts cost me about €200

Well, this site really is amazing. Thank you CocoPops!
Seems like wiring will have to be snaked up to the dash.
Any additional insight into this project will certainly be appreciated!

In the pic above:
1 & 2 - Go into the MMI Quadlock
3 is earth (trunk)
6 is power (anywhere with a ignition switched live, fuse box or towbar wiring perhaps)
4&5 - Go into the CAN (trunk)

Kufatec supply a PDF install guide with their cable harness.

Thanks CoCoPops. This is great for cars already equipped with Nav. The Kufatec harness requires that the car be equipped with Nav. For those of us without, another solution appears necessary. Perhaps one of the aftermarket head units noted in a previous thread...
