TV Help please

I have a 2006 X5 3d with OEM screen, TV, & Sat Nav.

whats the easiest way to install a reverse camera to this car (besides factory setup)?
Whats the best way to remove the lock on the TV display whilst moving?

I have seen a lead which enables me to do the above but i find it hard to believe the cost of just a couple of wires.

Is there any easier and cheaper way????

thanks in advance

I have a couple of the Dietz 1270 adapters. They have a little box with chips inside that alter the I-bus signal to keep the TV on. I can send you a picture of the inside if you want.

We offer the Dietz kits as well on the site, the 1260 is the correct kit for the X5.

Dietz Video Multimedia Interface - 1260

However the VSM would probably be a better kit for the camera, we it will provide automatic switching of the camera as the X5 is put into reverse.

Video Source Module (VSM) for BMW - Core System

We have pictures of the camera mounted into the taillight in this thread: http://www.xoutpost.com/vendor-forum/...reen-more.html

Feel free to contact me with any specific questions you might have.
