Reversing camera
« on: April 02, 2017, 10:08:04 am »
Hello

I've just picked up my new 124 abarth and it's awesome.

Mine didn't come with a reversing camera.
Does anyone know if I can retro fit a factory camera and if the loom is the same with the feed wires ?

Regards Paul

    Having watched a few 'tubes', I'm guessing it's only available in the USA together with the blindspot warning and garage door activation options...

    Paul996, does your A124 have a 'reverse or parking camera' option in the entertainment screen menu?

    If it does then your half way there.

    I suspect the wiring is there in the boot lid wrapped in tape out of the way.  If not it's very easy to wire a camera to your screen if it has a yellow female phono connector spare.

    I've seen the camera fitted to the Fiat 124 version and it appears to be the same design as available online.

    Whether you go for the OE Fiat version or much cheaper and probably inferior online version is up to you.

    There does not seem to be a reversing option on the screen. But I think the Lusso just came on when reverse was selected.
    Cheers for the info
