If you followed my thread then you will notice that these cameras come with grid lines. But they come with static grid lines and not the dynamic ones.

If you want to keep them, just cut white/green wire near connector. It'll be provided in the instructions manual.

I personally don't like grid lines, so I connected white wire and camera works without grid lines.

It is indeed a helpful feature, but alignment of grid lines is a must. Because when you will install camera you will notice that these grid lines are little offset to centre line. It looks bad.

Looking forward to your replies.



With regards,

Your car comes with CANBUS connection in HU, so you will just need ISO to quadlock connector i.e second one.

As I have explained this in my earlier posts, if your car doesn't come with CANBUS connection (i.e older models or trendline models) or you have Skoda cars, then only you will need CANBUS simulator.

Your car comes with RCD 320, which has CANBUS connection. So don't get confused. It's simple plug and play.

Regards,
Madhur

Default Re: VW Polo/Vento : Replaced stock RCD320 with RCD330 Plus + rear view camera installation guide

I just replaced the rcd510 in my Jetta with the rcd330+. It was literally a 10 minute plug n play job made even easier by following instructions in this thread.

Now my Jetta had the rcd510 + the 9w7 Bluetooth module installed earlier. I was able to replace the rcd510 pretty easily but since the 9w7 Bluetooth module is located under the glove box, I chose not to remove it. I also did not remove any wires from the quadlock connector, which means that the 9w7 Bluetooth module is still powering up when the rcd330+ starts. So what I have now is two Bluetooth receivers in my car - older 9w7 that shows up on the MFD of instrument cluster and the new integrated Bluetooth of the rcd330+. What I want to know is if there is a way to disable 9w7 completely using VCDS and will doing this affect the integrated Bluetooth of rcd330+? Alternatively, if I have to remove some wires from the quadlock connector to disconnect 9w7, which ones will they be? I certainly don't want two Bluetooth receivers in my car and would like to see if I can disable 9w7 without taking the glove box off. Thanks

Hi maddy, today I tried to install the Flip camera with RCD 330 Plus. After doing the coding through VCDS, when I engaged reverse gear, nothing happend?? We spent whole day figuring out whats wrong but can't get the camera to work. The camera pops out of the logo but Head unit doesn't shows anything. Dont know what I am doing wrong here.

Reset your HU by pushing and holding power button for 10 seconds. Most probably this will solve your issue.

If you put in reverse and getting error "Rear View Camera System not available" then you should check rear socket.

If you have done proper VCDS coding then, you will either get image or error. So check that also.

Some cameras may not work with HU. So check it before installing it. If above steps don't help you then check with another camera.

The problem is screen doesn't even react to reverse gear. It does not show any error message or anything else. Don't know what is wrong here. Will try to reset it and then will attempt the coding again

Hi i am facing ​this problem while trying to attach camera. This red cable is left out and I don't have any idea where to connect it to. Although maddy has mentioned that this should go into black power cable? So should I connect it to black power cable of the head unit?

Hi navdeep.rana,

This cable is a trigger cable for people attaching additional monitor to camera. This red wire gets power from the rear view light, hence it can power on additional monitor if you connect this cable to power source for monitor. You can use insulation material to cover this wire. There is no need to connect this to headunit.

Regards.

Thanks for your input on this. But without this cable, the camera video is not showing up on the screen. We tested the same camera on a different screen which had input for this red wire, and it worked properly. When we tried to remove this red wire from that screen, it stopped the video.

Now we also tested using small bulb, this red wire was getting power when we put the car in reverse gear. So I am not sure where should I connect this in the head unit. Is this wire is supposed to get power when engaging reverse gear or have we done the wiring wrong?

So this needs to be plugged somewhere. Now here is an image of another camera for reference. The wire that is left out is the ACC power wire in the following image.

Correct. It is indeed a trigger cable. You can simply insulate it with electrical tape or follow my idea.

Now if you have gone through my thread, you will understand that we need to give ACC supply to delay timer. And for that you will have to get a wire all the way from HU throughout to trunk in the back.

So instead of taking additional wire, you can just connect that trigger wire to HU ACC and other end to delay timer. Thus you will get video signal + ACC for delay timer within one cable.

It's ok brother, many people get confused with so many cables around it. But it's pretty simple and straightforward.

I'll explain all the wiring connections below :

If you look closely, you got 2 set of cables with your camera. One is long RCA cable and another is power cable for camera.

Now instead of that power cable supplied, we need to use DELAY TIMER. You will see there are 3 cables in delay timer.

Attachment 1625189

Connect RED to ACC.

Connect BLACK to GROUND.

Connect BLUE to REVERSE.

Now if you're not soldering, just simply tap on following wires in tail light assembly.

Tap BLUE for REVERSE.

Tap BROWN for GROUND.

NOTE : If you don't want to get additional wire for ACC, then just connect one end of trigger wire to HU ACC and connect another end to RED of delay timer.

Attachment 1625190

I've explained how I connected my camera. Apparently it's similar to the pic you have uploaded. Just that I have different delay timer.

And most importantly, whenever you are trying to check reverse camera close the trunk and then check it. It will not show anything if it's open.

Hi,

I have bought following camera, I believe I will have to cut black socket in the delay timer and connect +ve (red) and -ve (black) to camera power source.

Hi maddy,

Thanks a lot for the help. Just one little quick question for you. Can you tell me where do I have to connect the camera adapter on the rear of the head unit. My camera adapter is getting plugged into two different ports properly on the ISO to Quadlock converter. I have checked on both the ports, the reverse video still didn't showed up. Checked with all doors and boot closed, still nothing is happening on the screen. It would be really helpful if you could post a picture of where did you plugged that rear view adapter cable in the head unit.

Hi Maddy,

Just to confirm, I have a 2013 Vento Highline which has RCD 320, would i need just the ISO to Quadlock connector ?

Hi

If any one is facing problem while activating rear view camera function on RCD 330 Plus even after coding through VCDS ( changing Byte 3 etc) , do following steps:

1. Open VCDS> Can Gateway
2. Select Module Backup Camera and click save
3. Now go to Radio> Coding> Long Coding> change the Bit 6 under Byte 3 as maddyguage has mentioned.

Please note that selecting Backup Camera module under Can Gateway is very important for camera to work if it is not working for you by simple Long Coding. Just wasted a full week figuring this out.

I am planning to upgrade from rcd330 g to rcd 330 g plus. Is it a direct swap? Do I require connector?

Hi anb,

It will be plug and play since socket for RCD 330G and 330 Plus are same.
