    Hi All

    I have a 2011 W212 and was looking into the options available to get a reversing camera, issue is my car has the Audio 50 and not comand so cannot go via the OEM route it looks like.

    Has anyone else looked at any other options or managed to get this to work?

    Not a big fan of having another screen (unless I can find a good location) as it will look stuck on but not sure what else I can do, I've seen some rear view mirror type ones but that would go over the MB one.

    I know you said you don't want another screen, but it would seem that's an easy way to go. I bought a complete 7" satnav with wireless reversing camera for less than £65 via eBay, and the hardest bit of the installation was, unfortunately, siting the screen!

    Thanks, I'll have a look inside the car and see if theres a place where it would look ok, i've seen the wireless ones but was worried about lag, e.g. if video is 1-2 secs behind or starts stuttering could cause a issue, I would probably go the wired route.
