I have a Kenwood stereo with wireless/wired Android Auto/Apple CarPlay, backup camera works with factory camera, and my steering wheel controls work.

I have an R8 without a back up camera and no navigation. How difficult is it to add the back up camera?
The hardest part is going to be running the wire from the back of the stereo to the back of the car. The rest should be simply a matter of finding the receiver and camera you want, and making sure that they compatible.

Connected the unit it was super easy took 2 minutes to remove my nav unplug and plug in this one

obviously i did not route the usb or the gps cable in 2 minutes but it should take maybe another20-30 minutes

the unit is a complete plug and play

shows minor canbus data like oil temp etc and when doors are opened or trunk / frunk

tomorrow i will test how it works with oem backup camera

When you say 2 minutes. You mean from the time it takes to completely change the units over and have the new unit completely installed and running? All factory controls, factory backup camera, etc...?

Does the unit use the existing back up camera? You mentioned upgrading the back up camera, what camera are you using or will be using? Can you provide a link to it? The existing camera on my car is pretty bad, low image quality vs my other Audi back up cams.

All in all, looks pretty good. Nice job!

Leem, The middle button looks like a click wheel so the icon will likely rotate freely.

The headunit fit and finish look good. Waiting for the instal and review video. Thanks Lex.

Where did you find all the wiring kits needed? I am having trouble finding an installer who can get the wiring harnesses needed.
