    My wife has a 2014 CC with factory backup camera that had recently been giving her a “backup camera unavailable”.

    2014 Passat TSI SEL. All of a sudden I can't turn on the "entertainment" system, including the radio, navigation and the back-up camera won't come on while in reverse.

    Greetings to all and Happy Holidays, I have been following the posts on this forum but have not seen any recent mention of NAV or video back up systems applied to the B5 or 5.5 passats. Hopefully, this is the right place to ask anyone if you have installed a system that you are pleased with...

    Mary and I just returned from a three-week driving trip back east. Our rented car, a Hyundai Elantra, had a back-up camera...and I find now that I'm back in the B5 I miss it. I could just wait - DOT will require them in 2018 cars. But I like the B5, and wouldn't mind this improvement...

    My wife has a '12 Passat. One of the things she wishes for the car was NOT available with we bought the vehicle in '12. It appears that the latest models now do offer a backup camera as an option. Anyone know if the new camera kit can be installed in her '12 Passat? I'm guessing it would...
