Yes, I thought about that too... From TIS:

Rear fog light, reversing light, communication

The rear fog light and reversing light are not switched directly by the lamps of the towing vehicle as the corresponding lamps on the car must be extinguished with the trailer hitched up.

The trailer module communicates with the light module via a data link between the light module and trailer module.

The rear fog light and reversing light are controlled via this data link.


The trailer module transfers error messages to the light module with regard to faults in the trailer power circuits.

The rear fog light is switched off in the event of an interruption in communication between the light module and trailer module for more than two seconds.

Communication is re-attempted every time terminal 15 is switched on.

If communication between the light module and trailer module was already set up once and is now interrupted, the corresponding fault code is entered in the fault code memory of the light module.

Got an email today from Avin letting me know the Dual DVR V2 camera systems just arrived and they are sending mine out. The Avant-3 V2 is still 10 days out showing Jan 31 but getting the camera system mounted and wired in ahead of time will keep me busy for a few days.

Nice! Keep us updated. You're going to have your setup installed before I do... and I've had mine for months now.

Watching closely as I think the Avant 3 is what I want for our X5s

Do you know what cameras are included?
I'm assuming the front one is similar to their rear view mirror shroud one.
BMW OEM Style DVR Dash Camera Suitable for BMW 3 5 7 Series E46 E39 E53 E38

But I don't see any rear cameras for the E53.
Probably just one of their generic ones like
Front Parking Camera / Universal Rear View Backup Camera (Model: UFBCAM1)



Anyone know if this one will fit the E53?
BMW Trunk Release Backup / Reverse Camera for X5 X6 X3 X1 E82 E84 E88 E90 E91 E92 E93 E60 E70 E71 (Model: BMW-THCAM1)

it looks just like this one from amazon
BMW Backup Camera, Car Reverse Rear View Parking Back up Camera Compatible with BMW 5 Series M5/3 Series M3/X1/X3/X5/X6/E39/E53

The first link you provided for the OEM looking housing camera is out of stock and myself and another member found that camera on fleaBay and it really has some issues so we both returned them. The second link is a generic rear or front camera and also a no-go because of the size and shape IMHO.

The third and 4th links are for the license plate light rear view camera combination that claim fitment but you will find anyone that has tried to use it either on the E46 or E53 found it needed a lot of modification to install properly.

The Dual DVR front camera I ordered is the DDVR-CAM2 and is 1080 front and CCD rear. https://avinusa.com/dual-dvr-dashboa...-hd-video.html



Lastly, here is a video from Avin showing the DDVR installed on an M3 with the features available like lane departure alerts. Save yourself from endless blah, blah, blah and start at 11 minutes in.

This is the rear view camera Crowz and I used for our install. Nice, small and stealth.

Thanks OB!

So the front camera connects via USB(without RCA) to the Avin HU?
Rear connects to the Avin HU via yellow RCA.
Both front and rear are stored in the MicroSD on the front camera.

Also the Loop recording (3 min, 5 min, 10 min) Means that it will keep writing 3/5/10min clips until the card is full and then start erasing correct?
e.g. It doesn't rewrite a single 3/5/10min clip

Thanks,
Justin

Well, well, well. LOL

From Avin just 2 minutes ago:

Hi,

There was a delay in production of the new Android 8.0 BMW E46, E38, E39, and E53 units. We will not be able to ship out the new model until February 22nd. Maybe sooner but that is the new target date. The Avant3 has been discontinued. There will be a new model number and a new lower starting price as well. The new model will have a new low starting price of $449.99. Because of this, we will be refunding all customers that have ordered the Avant3 so they can place a new order for the new model when we update our website next week.
