TUTORIAL – ADDING A REAR CAMERA TO YOUR INAV SCREEN
This tutorial shows you how to add a rear camera to your INAV screen, it is a simple process and with this guide you will be able to connect the rear camera up.
STEP 1 – INSTALL THE CAMERA
The first step is to install the camera and route the cabling, most cameras we sell are boot handle integrated modules which incorporate the camera into the boot handle release mechanism. This offers an OEM finish and is a great location for the camera. An example of a camera we sell for the Audi A3/A4/A5/A6/A7/Q3/Q5
Each vehicle will require slightly different routing of the cable, but in general the boot lid inner trim panels will need removing, the boot handle will also need removing. You will then transfer the boot handle switch connector over to the new handle and install it into the OEM location.
STEP 2 – CABLE ROUTING
Routing the cable is the most time consuming part of the install, you need to route the cable to the front of the vehicle cabin from the boot. This will require you to feed the cable under the carpets and door seals etc, you are best to find your own way here and simply persevere.
STEP 3 – CONNECTIONS
Connecting the rear camera to the INAV screen is simple, just follow the diagram below;
The above diagram shows the connections needed, as can be seen the yellow RCA connectors are connected up at the INAV screen end (left side in the picture above) and the camera end (right side in the picture above).
There will be a labelled power line on the INAV screen harness (red wire above) which is connected to the red tail wire on the camera harness.
Then at the other end of the cable near the camera, you connect the two red cables together (we usually connect these for you before dispatch).
PROBLEMS AND SOLUTIONS
Problem : Display does not automatically switch to rear camera from CarPlay/Android Auto
Solution : make sure you select “Aftermarket Camera” in factory settings. ( if your vehicle is equipped with original backup camera please select “ORIGINAL BACKUP CAMERA” and our INAV screen retains your factory backup camera.
Problem : Display shows “no signal” when going into reverse
Solution : Check that you have connected the RCA to the “Rear Camera” connector on the INAV harness and not to the other “Video inputs”.
