I'm waiting for another camera I've ordered which is in transit.

I'll post proper installation guide once I receive my new camera.

Hey Maddy, I'm waiting for your camera install. I've connected the cam, but I get only a black screen when engaged in reverse. But no image. Really have no clue why? All codings done as explained still no image

Ok as I promised, here is complete guide for Rear View Camera installation.

Things you need :

1. RVC connector (which goes into HU)

2. Rear View Camera (AV camera)

Source - aliexpress - https://www.aliexpress.com/store/pro...781819668.html

Price - $25

3. Metal Clamp 2 no.

Basically it is used to hold trunk switch in place. In OEM switch, there are clips at both sides which this one lacks.

Source

It's easily available at any hardware shop or else you can make your own.

VW Polo/Vento : Replaced stock RCD320 with RCD330 Plus + rear view camera installation guide-img_2001.jpg

4. Electrical tape

Installation

1. First of all open boot and remove trunk lid panel.

VW Polo/Vento : Replaced stock RCD320 with RCD330 Plus + rear view camera installation guide-img_1980.jpg

2. Now remove trunk opener switch by pulling it outside. Disconnect it. Keep it safe in case in future you need it.

VW Polo/Vento : Replaced stock RCD320 with RCD330 Plus + rear view camera installation guide-img_1985.jpg

3. Now put new camera inside and get wires from inside throughout the left side of the trunk. Remove rubber and put a small hole in it so that camera cable can pass from that.

VW Polo/Vento : Replaced stock RCD320 with RCD330 Plus + rear view camera installation guide-img_1996.jpg

4. Now remove panel from back seat in the trunk. Pass RCA cable through space between sidewall and back seat.

VW Polo/Vento : Replaced stock RCD320 with RCD330 Plus + rear view camera installation guide-img_1990.jpg

5. Remove back seat by pulling it. Get your cable from under the seat. Make sure to route it inside (right side) of seat belt, otherwise you will break it. Now channel it through side panels till front quarter panel.

VW Polo/Vento : Replaced stock RCD320 with RCD330 Plus + rear view camera installation guide-img_1989.jpg

Remove front quarter panel and get the cable out from there. Now channel it through backside of glove-box to HU assembly.

VW Polo/Vento : Replaced stock RCD320 with RCD330 Plus + rear view camera installation guide-img_1992.jpg

6. Now connect RCA cable to RVC connector in HU by removing whole unit (for removing HU follow opening post). Put back HU assembly.

7. Now if you look closely, there will be 2 plugs connected to camera.

*** One is yellow plug. => connect yellow RCA cable to it.
*** One is red plug. => connect black power cable to it.

Now we already connected RCA cable to HU. So get power cable through trunk closer rod (or whatever its called) inside the trunk. Remove left side trunk panel.

8. Now this is the deal breaker. You can either choose Gannu's (VW Polo DIY: Euro-spec Tail lamps) method and solder camera power cables to tail light assembly or you can simply connect them by splicing factory wires.

PERSONAL CHOICE

VW Polo/Vento : Replaced stock RCD320 with RCD330 Plus + rear view camera installation guide-img_1999.jpg

If you choose simple method then simply connect black wire to brown wire in tail light connector and red wire to reverse light in tail light.

9. Now tape everything properly and put back side panels. Tape (zip tie) all wires.

10. Now get 2 clamps and bend it in L shape. Put camera in place and put both clamps in place and bolt it just like in pic.

VW Polo/Vento : Replaced stock RCD320 with RCD330 Plus + rear view camera installation guide-img_2005.jpg

With this solution, camera won't move and it will not fall outside. You can find another workaround for this. I've done this.

11. Now put back all the panels and close boot.

Coding

1. Open VCDS. Select control module.

VW Polo/Vento : Replaced stock RCD320 with RCD330 Plus + rear view camera installation guide-img_2006.jpg

2. Select 56 - Radio. Click on coding.

VW Polo/Vento : Replaced stock RCD320 with RCD330 Plus + rear view camera installation guide-img_2007.jpg

3. You will see Current coding. Copy that code and put it safe. (in case if you need in future)

4. Press "Long Coding Helper" (sometimes error comes but don't worry click ok).

VW Polo/Vento : Replaced stock RCD320 with RCD330 Plus + rear view camera installation guide-img_2008.jpg

5. Go to Byte 3 and change value from 00 to 40. Press exit. Press Do it.

VW Polo/Vento : Replaced stock RCD320 with RCD330 Plus + rear view camera installation guide-img_2009.jpg

6. You will see a message that Coding accepted.

Voila.

7. Clear fault codes if any.

So according to my HU new coding is like - 0000044004000A.

Result

VW Polo/Vento : Replaced stock RCD320 with RCD330 Plus + rear view camera installation guide-img_2012.jpg

Now you can see that there is static guideline coming in the image. If you don't want it then simply join green cut wire in connector beside camera.

VW Polo/Vento : Replaced stock RCD320 with RCD330 Plus + rear view camera installation guide-img_2013.jpg

By connecting that cut wire you will be able to see image without static guideline.

VW Polo/Vento : Replaced stock RCD320 with RCD330 Plus + rear view camera installation guide-img_2014.jpg

So finally you have successfully installed camera on RCD 330 plus.

P.S- If you're image is not stable or it is going upside down, then you will need Power Filter. (mostly it is happening in Chinese RCD 330 G)

P.P.S- When you engage reverse gear first and you get camera display but when you disengage it and if you're getting error like The Rear View camera system is currently not available, then you will need Digital delay timer module.

VW Polo/Vento : Replaced stock RCD320 with RCD330 Plus + rear view camera installation guide-carrearviewparkingcamerarelayfilterforvwrcd330grcd330gpluspassattiguangolftouran.jpg

Connect this and set delay timer to 8 seconds. It's easy. You can google it.

OEM cameras have function to stay alive for 8 seconds even if reverse gear is disengaged. So this is the main reason why we are getting camera error. Aftermarket cameras doesn't have delay module in it. So HU thinks that connection is interrupted, thus it gives error.

Hope this helps.

Thanks.

Maddy,

Can you post how good mirror link works on RCD 330 plus, i am still contemplating how well would this stack up against an android auto aftermarket ICE.

Looks like there's a way to click screenshots of the display. Was changing the tracks on the SD card and it had this pic in the .bmp format:

This is interesting! Also wondering why there is no display of any album art , because there seems to be a picture of a CD (default) when a song plays, which looks like it could be replaced by an album art, guess it reads it in some other format ?? Any leads ?

IMPORTANT

VW Polo/Vento : Replaced stock RCD320 with RCD330 Plus + rear view camera installation guide-img_2015-2.jpg

Many of us are getting error Rear view camera system is currently not available. If you don't want to install Digital delay timer module then you can do this simple workaround for the same.

PROPER STEPS :

1. Engage Reverse gear (camera starts).

2. When you're about to disengage reverse gear, just press cancel (X) and then disengage.

3. Now if you again engage reverse gear, it will work.

Every time you follow this steps and the camera will not give any errors. This is a simple workaround and we can easily live with it.

Check out this video :



Hope this helps.

Thanks.

Congrats on the update maddyguage, the HU looks more premium compared to the older one. I am also planning to upgrade the stock RCD 330G in my Ameo HL DSG to RCD 330G plus. I am hoping it to be a plug and play as the car already have rear view camera and related mechanics in place. Just wanted to ask that will the installation be needing any tweaks via VCDS to get it working smoothly.

Thanks a lot. Yes you will have to tweak it via VCDS. New HU will not have camera coding, so you will have to code it first otherwise camera will not work.

It's just plug and play for Jetta. No need for any additional connectors. No, you don't need any VCDS coding if you don't want to install camera.

Hello, I am unable to comprehend the working of this circuit. This seems to be an ON DELAY timer, this would not serve our purpose of keeping the camera on for 8 seconds after power has been withdrawn.

Please shed some light on the wiring of timer as I have ordered the HU from aliexpress and the same module from xcluma.

Regards,

It is very simple procedure and I will list out all the required parts for the installation. But before we begin, let's see why we should upgrade it in the first place.

Hi Bro,

I have Polo TDI 2012 model. Could I but this RCD 330 Plus and install it on my polo. The price at which its coming is quite tempting me to replace my existing media player. Kindly reply!

Hello,

Yes you can definitely go for it. It's very good compared to RCD 320. Follow my method to install it. It's very simple. Most probably even OPS will work in your car.
