    I'm still waiting for mine. Should be here by the end of the day but I will start the retrofit next week.

    Did you activate the camera (6C) in the 19-Gateway module?

    You should try to go to module 19 which is the Gateway module and activate 6C which is for the camera. That's only with VCDS if I'm not mistaken. I haven't tried it myself yet to know for sure but that's what they told me from Carsystems where I bought the camera.

    Note that this applies to the oem camera.

    I don't remember by heart. I will have to do it myself in order to tell you for sure. Should be a box to tick in long coding though.

    So the camera is up and running. Dynamic lines and everything!

    The coding I mentioned above is correct then. To sum up:

    19 - Gateway --> Installation List --> Activate "6C-Backing up camera" --> Save
    5F - Electronic System --> Adaptations -->

    CAR FUNCION LIST BAP GEN2-VPS-----ACTIVE
    CAR FUNCION LIST GEN2 - VPS msg bus -------TERMINAL 15

    10 - Steer/Park Assist --> Byte 4-5 --> 10 Rearview Camera

    What's most important though is the coding of the camera that should be done by the seller (in my case carsystems.eu). Because the highline camera was never an option for the Leon, the camera has to be coded for another MQB model which in my case is a Golf. The thing is that the coding was done for the emblem camera of the Golf and did not work properly at first. I had to send a full scan to the seller so that he could identify the mistake and suggest to uncode the swining logo (byte 4 bit 6 in 6C module).

    Of course the system needs calibration in order to be 100% correct but I won't bother as this is a task for a dealership and since it's not even a factory option I don't think they will help.

    The camera is inside the car for testing reasons but you can see what you want. Now I have to mount it on the bumper.

    Hi

    Ive just had a read through this.

    I understand everything except the coding, and maybe which camera i can use.

    Few questions, what is OPS? is this parking sensors on the screen? I have aftermarket parking sensors, which seem to work ok, but make an awful sounding beep that is far too loud.

    I have a March 2015 Leon ST SE with the tech pack, does this apply to me?

    So i assume i need VCDS? looking at the cost of this, £225 isnt it? i cant justify this for a rear view camera, and i'm not sure how much other use i would get out of VCDS... can it be done another way? with cheaper software?

    Thanks
     
  17. Re coding I am sure you can use OBD11 but you need the Pro Version.

    Quick question, I installed the RVC but it only works when connected to external battery, when I connect to reverse light, the camera does not show up, and all the other lights start popping errors in the screen. Seems that its trying to pull too much power. Did you guys used the rectifier provided with the camera?
