Reverse camera with dynamic guidelines w/out PDC

I didn't get the driver assistance package on my 328i. I wanted to get the reverse camera with dynamic guide lines but no one was offering that solution. But it seems bimmer-tech has finally got it. I am going to get this installed next month if possible

Nice! I think having a backup camera will help a lot for parking and seeing cross traffic. Viewing your video, I am not sure of the purpose of the red line. It seems to be all over the place. The green grid makes more sense to me. Just something to get use to. Enjoy!

The red lines show the maximum turning angle possible (left or right depending on which way you are turning). Very useful in telling if you have the ability to clear an obstacle without stopping and moving forward.

Is this the OEM version that they offer or the Retrofit?

I have the driver's assistance package. From the video, this reverse camera functions identical to the OEM. Or, at least I couldn't spot any difference.

I was going to say the same thing. I would have had no idea it wasn't the OEM version.

This particular rear view camera is an aftermarket retrofit but as you can see in the video it works great and includes dynamic parking lines like the OEM camera.
What's even better it can be installed in any F30 no matter if you have the PDC or Navigation.

We are also offering the OEM rear view camera but it's more expensive and requires the Navigation and PDC.

Feel free to email us your VIN at info@bimmer-tech.net if you have any questions.

Could this camera with the dynamic lines be installed in a 2013 X5?

I have a new 2014 328d xDrive built on 12/5/2013 with both the drivers assist packages. My rear carmera does not have the lines in the Videoi. Is there a setting I need to turn on?

Yes. On the left of the screen is a list of option icons. You can use them to turn various options on or off.

Unfortunately not.
It's just for the F-series BMW.

We have a different rear view camera for the E70.
