This only works if your Range Rover comes with the television module installed. Most sold in North America did not come with this module.

Sehr interessant, aber wo schließe ich das weiße Kabel des Relais an ? Etwa am Lampen Plus der Rückfahrscheinwerfer, da sonst kein Bild auf dem Fahrzeug Monitor erscheint ? Das größte Problem ist der + Anschluss für die Rückfahrkamera, da das Rückfahrplus der Rückfahrscheinwerfer wohl eine Eigenfrequenz hat, bzw. getaktet ist. Das Bild ist da, aber läuft sehr schnell.Liegt das am Fahrzeug Bussystem ? Soll man besser Dauerplus verwenden? Woher? Dann ist die Kamera immer an und das Signal wird nur immer zu und abgeschaltet. Oder muss man mit Hilfe eines zweiten Relais hier den Dauerplus zuschalten ??? Beschreibung kann sicherlich noch verbessert werden, da viele Fragen offen bleiben..
