While searching i found the Kenwood Multimedia System in the VW accessories catalog...

Guessing this is the same unit...

Has anyone else fitted the above to a T5.1, looks pretty good to me considering it has Garmin Sat Nav, Parrot hands free kit and iPhone connectivity. So no more cluttred dash. Also looks like good value for money considering my TomTom is on the blink and i was wanting a hands free kit anyway.

The only thing it is missing is the parking sensors, but Kenwood do do a revering camera, so even better!

Has anyone fitted a camera, any pics of where you installed it, how hard is it to run the cabling?

Sorry for all the questions, just like to hear other peeps views as its alot of money.

Cheers Mike:cool:

Have the kenwood reversing camera linked to our head unit. It's brill! Sorry no pics but have it positioned just above the number plate. Cabling was a pain for us as our van T5 converted to camper. The chap that did it huffed and puffed alot but did a great job. Works a treat:D

.......don't like those beeping sensorsH:

The kenwood unit mutes when you engage reverse which is cool - it would mean you could still hear parking sensors if you spec'd them but you wouldn't get the radar picture.

The camera can be mounted where ever you want it... that also switches on when you put it into reverse.

Old thread but, does anyone have pointers on how to wire in the input for reversing ?
Connect reverse camera to green/black at rear light or loom running down van, also connect your screen to this cable, so activates camera and screen when in reverse.. If you have a brand new T5 you may need to relay this up..
