Hi Guys,

I have a 2015 Touareg Rline 3.0 TDI. Unfortunately I purchased this car without reversing camera. It can be retrofitted buying the below kit but I feel this is a bit expensive and quite a lot of work to fit. I do not think there is any other way to connect a camera to the car display?

I am now looking into dash cameras and realised they could work as reversing camera! The options on Ebay are mind blowing! I am still investigating but with £6 you can buy some chinese quality products like the one in the link below. They seem to connect to your mobile via wifi through an App. Since I already have my smartphone on the dash I was thinking I could press a button and display the rear camera when I feel I need it. If this is the case and the video quality is decent I just need to provide power which could be done quite easily (front connecting to the cigarette lighter fuse and back to the power outlet in the boot (after checking it goes off when turning the ignition off))

What do you think? I know this camera is probably not the best quality but if it works could be a simple and quick set up for no money. I also like the shape of this model that clearly copies a famous and expensive brand....

All the best and wear your mask!
