Sorry lads been away, the fitting is very straight forward, once you have the input cable for the back of the headunit.

There are a couple of excellent how to’s on here, fitting a camera to a VW/any aftermarket is the same.

For me I used this cheap camera

https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre ... 3289484140

Image

I used a feed off the main fuse board for the 12v feed on the input connection at the headunit and ran a wire off the same 12v feed through the van when I was fitting the camera cable. Some others use the wiper motor, either is good.

You need a time delay filter relay like this on the feed from the reverse light feed.

I used this site a good how to

http://rcd330plus.com/showthread.php?tid=13

Once all is fitted you may need to change some coding with VCDS, the RCD330 will show as a it own unit

Here is my coding
Radio
Part #: 6RD035187B
Coding: 16000440040005 (hex)
Component: Radio
[No fault codes]

To be honest it’s very straight forward, the connections into the reverse light few is probably the worse part. As away read read and double check all

Should not be an issue, mine are factory and still showed on radio until I fitted the camera

Aftermarket RCD330

Post by Ripley55 » Thu May 23, 2019 5:00 pm

Guys
I keep coming back to looking at a reverse camera, and have a couple more questions regarding my RCD330
So, I’ve got the cable
Image
And need advice on how it fits, as I said earlier, this unit was a blinding buy, and was an easy install, so getting it back out to fit the cable should be a doddle, it’s just what do I need to do Image
Secondly I’ve been looking at a wireless system as per the photos attached and wondering if anyone has tried this ? they are under £30 on eBlag ? I’m not lazy but it saves trying to run cables to the head unit ?
ImageImageImage
Allegedly these are ‘Designed for VW Transporter/Caddy?
What’s your thoughts chaps, Advice ? Pitfalls ?

I ordered this bad boy from the same place yesterday. Fingers and toes crossed it works well.

I am now searching for a wired camera....any suggestions? There is one on eBay for £11!?! Seems tooooo good to me true

I have the wired version for £10, works grand, the angle is a tad low, but my main reason was to see the tow bar works a treat.

It’s a van so wiring it is not too hard at all

Hello @Boonalon
Wouldn’t mind a quick line on how to install that cable at the back of the 330, and any tips cheats as it were. As I said I’m not lazy but would really love to try the wireless route.
Cheers
Dave

Please post back when you know it's good!

Could you send a link somehow?

Im trying to replace a broken 3rd party android screen. I have zero electrical knowlege! Hoping this would just be plug and play?

The stereo and camera work well together. I wouldn't say it is plug and play. Takes a bit of work to get it wired right but if you can follow the instructions, its not too bad.

Need to splice into a couple of wires

I used a delay relay as well so the camera stays on for a few seconds after leaving reverse gear

How was installing the actual head unit? Simple?

On the verge of buying one of these rcd300 units from eBay.
