Only certain versions of the RCD-510 and RNS-510 appear to have input sockets for the backup camera. Rather than pulling out the radio to look at the back of it, is it possible to use the scan tool to see if the radio model will accept the camera ?

Thanks

I doubt it. You will need to use VCDS to try and see if you can "measure" a state change in the radio for the input whenever you select and deselect Reverse gear (for the head unit itself. This should give you an indication as to whether or not the radio "might" have the input for the camera. I don't know which channel number you should be monitoring as I only have the older Premium7 head unit (that obviously does not support this feature).
