▀▄ eas | Video Source Module (VSM) for E9X M3

This kit allows you to view camera/video inputs on your BMW's navigation screen. The unique picture in picture layout allows the user to view the map or iDrive screen while viewing a reverse camera feed or video source. When the car is put into reverse the VSM module automatically activates the reverse camera display; when the car is taken out of reverse the camera display is deactivated.



The optional camera fits into the BMW trunk by replacing one of the license plate lights for an OEM look and fitment. With an integrated LED license plate light, no functionality is lost after replacement. The camera is equipped with an ultra wide angle lens allowing you to see what is behind the car as much as possible. The VSM module allows you to overlay a parking distance apex grid on the reverse camera display.






Features
Audio/Video Source Selectable by OEM Steering Wheel Buttons (CANbus)
Picture in Picture (PIP) Function
Automatic Reverse Camera Activation
Parking Distance Apex Grid Overlay
1 Camera Input
3 Audio/Video Inputs

When this unit plays iPOD video's,how is it connected, through the 6fl harness? Could this possibly display other iPOD applications on your head unit? Thanks

Videos from your iPod will require an Apple A/V cable is used, this is completely independent from 6FL - which is an iPod audio-only system.

I guess the Apple A/V allows anything on the apple screen to be displayed on the stock monitor? Does the kit come with this cable or is that purchased seperatly from Apple? Reason I ask is, I'm wondering if I could run an application like Rev 2.0 to my head unit? Thanks

No - that is achieved with a jailbroken iPhone, but definately possible.

Any further questions, please PM me directly as we have a 5-bump limit on the vendor sections, which limits interactivity with inquiries.

What type of video inputs are included with this kit? Are they purely analog composite or is there something like an HDMI connection available?

Thanks,
Chuck
