Frequently Asked Questions:
- Does the Video module need to be programmed?
All of the Video modules come pre-programmed. Vehicles with a Manual Transmission will require some changes to the settings. Each kit comes with a mini keyboard (for 2006-2008 models) that can be connected to the Video module in order to make the necessary changes. Please contact us so we can guide you through this process.
- Does the Rear View camera turn ON automatically when I put in Reverse Gear?
Rear View camera will automatically turn ON when the vehicle is in Reverse Gear. The Guide Lines will appear automatically at the same time.

On 2006 – 2011 cars you can switch between the Video sources by pressing and holding the MENU button for 3 seconds. It can also be done by holding the “Arrow Down” button on the steering wheel for 3 seconds.
- How many devices can be connected to the Video module?
The Video module has 2 AV Inputs, 2 Video Outputs, and 1 Audio Output. Only 2 devices can be connected to the AV Inputs. However, a Video switcher module (not included with the kit) can be added to split the video signal. That will give you the ability to add extra devices.

AV Y-cable is required if you would like to enable the Rear View camera while driving forward. It allows you to split the signal coming from the Rear View camera..

AV AUX cable is required in order to play videos on your iDrive screen. It needs to be connected to the Video Module AV/OUT port and the other 3.5mm connector needs to be connected to the vehicle’s AUX port. This allows you to stream audio signal via the OEM Audio system.
- Why do I need AV Composite cable?
