Retrofit rear view camera to R4.0 IntelliLink

Post by leoynage » Fri Jun 03, 2016 9:52 am

Hello!
Owner of a Dynamic Astra (greece) and i didn't took the park assist package unfortunately.
Is it possible to buy the rear view camera and hook it up to the R4.0 IntelliLink i have in the car?
Something like this?

It think it's possible, see installation manual for sports tourer. Try asking your dealer, they should be able to retrofit original camera. Not sure how would R 4.0 work with aftermakret camera though.

Hey leoynage,

I have faced the similar situation, I too didn't took the park assist package. And yes, it is possible to hook rear view camera with the R4.0 IntelliLink.

I recently bought IntelliLink and it works amazingly. Now Vauxhall has introduced R4.0 IntelliLink system infotainment technology including smartphone integration to the stylish ADAM city car.

Now R4.0 IntelliLink systems provides an overview similar to a smartphone menu and the choice of well-known navigation including Apple Maps and Google Maps. It is very easy to use and beneficial.

If you still have a doubt regarding hooking up the rear view camera then you can hire used camera kits and give a try to it first

Regards
Jay Walton

In TUrkey dealers are not good developed for retrofit.

Maybe anyone had any luck installing better definition cameras? Quality from it is quite low...

Good morning Guys,
We do a lot of retro fitting for Vauxhall (opal) dealers and this is the product we use to fit a reversing cameras to R4 Intellilink such as the Astra K, and others, with same system, e.g, Corsa, Adam, etc. Hope this helps,

Hi,

That system sounds quite good, do you have any pics of the camera fitted to the rear of the car please?

It would be cheaper getting factory fitted camera from Vauxhall. I wouldn't trust them guys. I had a reversing camera off them for my Astra J for £500 and never worked properly.
