This is a large reason why I don't care for the camera mounted in the roundel.

You can mount the camera in the rear taillight if you wish, but I'm not sure what you mean by mounting the camera inside the lens. If you do this, the image will be completely red.

Does the NavTV (BMW TV Module) automatically switch to the camera when you put the car in reverse when a camera is connected?

Yes. The OEM TV module's camera video input, when activated, will override whatever is on the nav screen at that time.

Thanks!

Now does anyone have a camera from the group buy they decided not to use?

What else do you need to connect this camera?
I have the 16:9 with the TV option.
Is it a PAL or NTSC version.

Nothing - this will connect directly to your OEM TV tuner. The camera is in NTSC format.

Is there a "howto connect" it for the X5 somewhere on this forum?
Only found 1 for the 7 series.
There they say that the TV tuner's blue connector, pin #17 is to be grounded to activate the external video source input.
Elsewhere I read that pin #6 and pin #15 of the white X18806 plug from the TV module are to be used for the video signal and video ground.
Could you confirm this?

Here are some instructions on the OEM pieces on the front page: http://www.xoutpost.com/articles/x5/e...amera-kit.html
