So, I played around with my HU again last night and test wired my aftermarket backup camera to a battery and, as is, the only way I can get the backup camera to display on the HU is to use the "aux-vin" labeled RCA connector on the harness that contains the big jumble of RCA connectors. None of the others work, even the ones labeled as camera. Further, it will only display on the screen if I manually press the "mode" hard button to cycle over to the "aux" setting (which takes forever), or alternatively I can press the audio cable looking icon on the screen seen here:
The problem with this is that I don't want to have to manually do this each time. It also turns my music off and then afterwards I have to manually turn the music back on.
Since I don't have the factory backup camera I obviously don't have the built-in wiring harness connector for it. I need to mimic the factory setup and trigger the Android HU to operate like stock to display my backup camera automatically, but I need to understand how the factory stuff fits together with this Android HU wiring.
Can one of you factory backup camera guys who own this Android HU help me out here?
What I need is to determine with 100% certainty that THIS white connector plugs into the factory backup camera harness in your dash. This should be it based on the fact that it's got a camera RCA and that I have nothing to plug into it, but want to make sure:
If so, I need to know what exactly you did with the camera RCA line coming off of the connector in question:
Does it plug into the "cam" female RCA on the Android HU bundle? Like this:
If all the above is true, I believe I just need to worry about two wires now. I say only worry about two wires because I should be able to run the camera cable straight from my camera to this female connector on the RCA bundle:
This will bypass the male RCA camera dongle hanging off the white connector in question and thus I won't need to worry about those two terminals. I'll just be left with the orange wire and a black ground wire that I'll need to feed presumably with a signal from the reverse lights:
