Can a cheap camera be interfaced to the 8 inch touch screen?

2012 SD4 Pure/Tech pack.

I have searched........

Yes, I DIY'd mine in 2013 Pure. You need a video in motion interface, FAKRA adaptor from composite, then you can use any cheap reverse camera (I got mine from Banggood for some 15 euros. Fixing is not too difficult but you need to remove console & most of dash.

Thanks Mickey,

Still ends up costing $$$ VIM being the exey bit.

I was hoping the factory head unit had a composite video in....

Can you use the USB sockets to get any video on the screen?

Or even bluetooth input?

Got parking sensors so maybe they will have to do......

I find the reversing camera very helpful -- especially the guide lines for where the wheels and body are 'aiming' for.   
Also for showing when cars are coming from left or right when reversing out of a tight, 'supermarket' type parking space.

Thanks all,

Sensors it is!

Was hoping I could just plug a $10 camera into the screen!

Ha ha....

The $10 cameras I'm on about need a 12v power supply, you just hook it up to the reverse lights!
