Does anyone know where this black connector goes on the AVIN screen?
-A word of caution for anyone thinking of adding a backup camera, I didn’t want to run any wires from the trunk to the head unit so I bought the Avin wireless backup camera WiFi kit. 1.), the video quality is not as good as a wired source, 2.), apparently this is pretty well documented but I didn’t do my homework, bmw uses pwm on a lot of the lighting in the car. The issue this causes is, when the car is running, voltage supply dropped to around 10.9v at my reverse lights, this wasn’t enough power to activate the backup camera, I had to add a relay. Once I properly hard wired the video signal and added the relay to power the camera, it works amazingly well, I even get the steering/parking lines that move with my steering wheel.
@doublespaces, I too got a weird noise ,intermittently, through my speakers. For my car, the culprit was somehow my passport radar detector which was hard-wired into the power wire going to my cig lighter. Believe it or not, when I unplugged the radar, the sounds went away instantly. I re-wired it straight off an accessory fuse and somehow that totally solved my issue. If you have other aftermarket stereo equipment or things of that nature, maybe experiment with moving wires around or unplugging them to see if it effects your interference noise through your stereo.
