I'm looking to add a forward facing infrared camera that outputs NTSC video as a video input source to my Audi A5 MMI 3G system. The MMI has the green Fakra connector which is used for video input, but I need help with configuring the MMI to use the video input as a source to the in vehicle MMI screen.

I don't know if I'll be required to add a TV tuner to feed my infrared camera output to--or if I'll be able to directly feed the video signal to the green Fakra connector.

Does anyone have knowledge or documentation that could be helpful?

Regards,
Mike

Hello Mike,

I don't have any personal experience with that retrofit but you can post the complete Auto-Scan so we can see what this car is made of.

Hello Uptime. At our shop we use the following part to integrate video into the 3G MMI system, no tweaks needed.

That link directs you to a system used for internal MMI, a fancy way of saying your MMI selection stick is embedded in the radio face. If your MMI selection stick is embedded behind the shifter use the following system:

You can then feed your video signal into the device and then use the provided toggle button to switch to the IR camera at any time!
