Hello. My first post here, so have mercy!

My kids share a Uk 2016 POLO 6C. It has Navigation & front/ rear park senors standard.

As it's mostly city driving I picked up a Reverse Camera kit. It included the camera & cabling but no coding information.

Connection is easy enough, 2 wires to Infotainment brains in the glovebox area and a few power connections.

Various Internet suggestions for activation RVC in related VW, but none identical to this car.

RVC appears in 2 places.

1) In the Park-Steer module Bit 4-5 has a drop down list with camera options. Selecting RVC makes no apparent difference.

2) In the Infotainment module Bit 4 is an option "RVC Low installed". If I select this I do get a reconfiguration of the Infotainment reverse screen but no image, and it only works for one "put into reverse" cycle, Then then a message "Park Assist unavailable". By deselecting the camera all returns to normal.

I have tried 1) & 2) individually & together and no difference in behaviour.

Behaviour is the same whether the camera is connected or not. I suspect the camera is not the issue but something else.

What thoughts please???

Thanks
Hugh

Is this a badge reverse camera or just an aftermarket one?

If it’s the badge, I’ve recently retrofitted one and the cable from the badge has to plug into its self and that’ll fix it, as I had the same issue.

No, it's the one that sits just over the number plate, it's supposed to be an original upgrade, but frankly the source proved to be a bit suspect, despite the nice website.

I think VW changed to the Number Plate camera on later cars. I am not an expert in any way on Polo's.

Can you elaborate a little on the problem as you saw it? I am assuming there is some interaction between the camera and the Infotainment module, so the module needs to see the camera correctly.

There are 5 wires from the cable loom supplied: Clear & Black, to the infotainment module: Pins 6 & 12 on the green connector
Brown to ground
Red to +12
Yellow to reversing light

So in theory pretty simple
Thanks!
