Hi, ok i know there been some post about this but most back in the days and way i see not fully documented so hopefully some one can help me out.
I got this toy car mostly as it looks like new, like really never been drven besides 11 years old but few things missing on it in order to be able to drive in NYC such as back up and parking sensors, i cant possibly park without them given that i drive SLK on normal days.

So my HU does not have green farka connector so i assume Pins 1+7 are my camera outputs. HU has empty connector slot Type A on the back and according to some pix 1+7 pins are from there (i ordered that connector and will crimp it with camera outputs for testing.

Now there is a WIS document pe54.65-p-2102-97maa which references pins 1+7 and it also says camera power goes from line N66/10. I'm electronic engineer and automotive wiring schematics drive me nuts :) Is N66/10 located on the same connector?

Does any one know what the pin out of the connector? Like i have 12 positions connector i want to see what other functions it has?

Do you have a kit already. Mid city engineering had a kit if you plan on adding an OEM type camera. They also sell a parking sensor kit.

I believe kit form Mid City is $800 which i dont think it worth the money given that Android HU with camera support cost $300 :) And i think MB HU suck big time. And also I dont fully like quality of Mid City products, i have remote start form them i found bug where is send noise to can lines and in what 5 years they still have not reply to me :)

That's why I opted for the AVIN unit

AVIN looks nice not cheap though with MOST. I might look into chinise versions to see if they support MOST and speedo display. .... and forger about camera retroft :)
