    NEW VW T6 - Rear View Camera KIT - With Guidance Lines - Retrofit -

    See behind your car with rear view camera.

    A camera at the back of your car shows you what's behind to make reversing safer and easier. Or rear view camera lets you spot any obstacles behind your car - even moving ones - quickly and easily, thanks to the rear view camera.

    The camera starts working as soon as you put your car into reverse gear. It shows the area behind your car on your radio or radio navigation system display offering you a clear reversing image with easy-to-follow guidelines. Superimposed graphic lines guide you to the optimal steering lock, guaranteeing fuss-free, smooth parking.

    Using the rear view camera means you'll be able to manoeuvre quickly and easily, even into the most difficult parking space. It also alerts you to low-down obstacles which parking sensors cannot always detect. The reversing camera is also a great help when you're hitching up a trailer.

    Thanks again the media station in my van hasn’t got navigation, will it work, not sure it’s discover media if it’s not got nav? Could I put a non genuine camera on it? How would I find out if my head unit will support the image

    looks like you have :

    02 Composition Media DAB+ radio system


    3.jpg

    and the one i linked in at the top looks like its compatible

    Compatible with Head Unit:

    Composition Media
    Discover Media
    Discover Media Plus


    edit:

    no i dont believe you can add a third party camera without some major tweekage, the it seems to be a standard CVBS signal to the headunit and a trigger from the rear reversing light. so never say never.

    Be a little cautious of this company Vagtec. I used to deal with them years ago under a different name. They are crooks and will never resolve any of your problems. Also not sure where they source there stuff from. His name is Tom.WARNING

    I would echo this, have had dealings with them and they are awful, they will lie to you and pretend to be in the UK etc etc, they are not, all they want is your money and they will not help if theres any issues

    I’m sure they have many satisfied customers it’s just the ones where things don’t go right or there’s an issue, they will lie and cheat and offer no help/support etc and wash their hands with you as they already have your money

    Hi, does anybody have any photos of their camera installed? I have a T6 and would rather not but the vehicle to install. Looking for a decent number plate light mounted one. Any pics / specs appreciated
