My Kufatec IMA rear view camera solution has worked very nice, but I wanted to test with the original camera since I was missing the trajectory lines what you get with the original module from Q5, Q7, A5, A6 ect... so I bought a R8 reversing camera module and installed in my A3 today :)

Basically I've did the same connections as with the Kufatec solution, but instead of having a wire from RNS-E <-> Kufatec IMA for reversing signal, it has to go to the central electronic. You would also have to code the CAN Gateway to support reverse camera module.



Sorry for the quality of the images...

After starting the thread, I've remembered that we had a discussion here: http://audiforum.us/rns-e/9392-backup-camera-trajectory-lines.html

I've couldn't find a way to switch between parallel or perpendicular parking mode, but the default mode (as in the images) is way far the best! The mode can be changed through VAG-COM (bit 15 if I remembered correctly)

My module is 420 910 441, and physically I’ve placed it where the CD-Changer is normally placed – it doesn’t fit (because of different sizes, but with the help of some foam it seems to be okay…

Of course it’s a more expensive solution to do the original retrofit that with the Kufatec IMA solution, but it’s far nicer and much easier to park :)

Very nice... I wish someone had given that a try in a non-CAN gate equipped car... and no I'm not volunteering...

You mean CAN Gateway (which is an Audi component) and not CANgate (which was a special module made by bjarne).

You will need have to have access to VCDS in order to code the car...

With this fully oem setup, danish_a3 has confirmed that you don't need to code your RNS-E for Lamborghini mode as with the Kufatec solution. This is very appealing to me, however, it's also more expensive.

Checking in with my favorite Audi parts place here in Vancouver, the parts alone add up to over $1100Cdn. I'm still tempted to do it though :)

We'll see...

Hello danish_a3,

You have made a great job in here. One question, have you tried the module of the Q7 to see if the dynamic lines appears?

Best regards

I lost my mind and try to put it working on a A3 and i had no luck. The Q7 module doesn't comunicate with the A3 system. Now i bought a R8 module and still need some configuration work but it is working nice :)

Would really like to hear an update on this - can someone clarify, should this alternative be possible in a US spec RS4 running a 2010+ RNS-E? I hear that RVC does not always work on the newest firmware and would love to find out that this eliminates both issue of incompatibility and Lambo logo - but I suspect CAN bus situation effects this mod possibility?
