Retro Fit Reversing Camera

Post by djcorn42 » Mon Oct 16, 2017 6:02 pm

Hi, wondered if anyone has thought about ( or had done ) a Reversing Camera after purchase?

Miss having a camera, but not an option to purchase on it's own without add ons.

Any information/advice would be helpful.

Thanks

I bought one with 'installation' and after 2 attempts it was decided to abandon the plan and got a refund even though it was supposedly a 'genuine Audi' kit.

Basically there was a problem with the 'refresh rate' and they couldn't stop the screen flickering.

That's a few months back now so things may have improved/been resolved but having learnt to live without a reversing camera I no longer feel the need to have one :shock:

Hi Andrew thanks for the reply, was this the genuine Audi product that firs under the boot handle? Was it successful, and did you need to get it coded by Audi or did the fitters do that.

Hi, yes genuine Audi parts used, Audi dealers use them also.
They did everything including the required coding.
You do require your car to already have the rear parking sensors already fitted and they will ask for you VIN before quoting.
You should be able to negotiate a small discount if you take your car to them but the fitting does take sometime.

Ok thanks again Andrew. I do have the Rear Parking sensors fitted. St Albans bit of a distance for me though, appreciate your response.

Hi Cal

My local Audi dealer (Canterbury) are currently trying to retro-fit an Audi reversing camera to a 2018 Audi Q2 Sport 1.4 TFSI (that has rear parking sensors) that I am purchasing from them; but are apparently having trouble getting the system to work, which seems odd. If they fail then I'll have to get someone like Vagtec to fit one once I collect the car.

Would here be any reason why they are having trouble?

Hi,

They should have all the information to fit this, especially as I’ve seen a few Audi dealers offering this as a retro fit package deal. And as you say, seems odd they can’t fit the camera. There are a few specialist that can fit the camera. Try https://www.vagcarcoding.com/ who are well respected and knowledgeable.

I second the info above. I got a quote from Alex at VAG CC for £450 for rear view camera fitted. That was the big line version. I tried getting quotes from others but they were all way more expensive with less feedback

How much are Audi charging you? VAG CC are fully authorised by Audi so I would cancel your Audi camera and get it done by them.
