Go back to the future with a sci-fi reverse view camera kit. This hi-tech option, commonly reserved for luxury models, can be retrofitted to any MKV Golf equipped with an RNS-based factory navigation stereo.
This is a great accessory for families with small children--or for anyone who needs to back up in a crowded parking lot. With the camera installed, shifting into reverse turns on the radio screen and displays live video of hazards behind the vehicle: kids and carts, pets and pedestrians, toys and trikes.
ECS has published a how-to photo procedure on its web site detailing the entire installation process. The tutorial gives detailed instructions about hardware and wiring, and shows scan tool re-coding steps to enable the camera.
Tech-savvy pro-sumers with appropriate tools can use the information to self-install the camera. Others can share the information with their favorite auto repair professional.
This isn't just an accessory; it's one of the best safety upgrades ever offered by ECS.
