Rear cam shuts off after 255 meters

form the pdf:

REM 3203 The speed when it auto disables rear camera view V_SCHWELLE_1 werte = FF

REM 3203 The speed when it auto disables rear camera view V_SCHWELLE_2 werte = FF

REM 3203 The distance when it auto disables rear camera view when in forward D_SCHWELLE_1 werte = 00

REM 3203 The distance when it auto disables rear camera view when reverse is engaged D_SCHWELLE_2 werte = 00

REM 3201 Max speed when visible and audible warning is given with PDC km/h CUT_OFF_SPEED werte = FF

TRSVC 3000 Activate Rear View Camera at any speed SV_Activate_Speed_Limit werte = 00

TRSVC 3000 Activate Rear View Camera at any speed SV_Deactivate_Speed werte = FF
Hi Marskiller. I also want my rear cam to never shut off when moving.
I have already coded all all the above in the REM and TRSVC modules.

The rear camera stays on forever if I do not move, but still shuts down after 255 meters with D_SCHWELLE_1 and D_SCHWELLE_2 se to "00".
(could it have anything to do with "wert_01"/"wert_02"/"wert_03", even though my "werte=00"?)

Can you confirm you can have rear camera on ALL THE TIME even after 255 meters?

Attached my REM part of the coding

Hello yes I confirm it stays always on

You must chose wert _03 for both

REM 3000 The distance when it auto disables rear camera view when in forward D_SCHWELLE_1 wert _03

REM 3000 The distance when it auto disables rear camera view when reverse is engaged D_SCHWELLE_2 wert _03

This will set the werte=00

If it doesn't work also change

REM 3201 Max speed when visible and audible warning is given with PDC km/h in hexa CUT_OFF_SPEED werte = FF

Werte_03, werte=00 is already what I have for D_SCHWELLE 1 and 2 as above.
Does your coding look exactly the same as mine?

Sorry an error in the cheat sheet

TRSVC 3000 Activate Rear View Camera at any speed SV_Deactivate_Speed werte = it must be 00 not FF

Cheat sheet corrected

Let me know if it worked

Hi Marskiller - I followed your excellent instructions on my F32, and it worked perfectly! However, after driving around for a few hours I found it quite disconcerting to have the (moving) rear camera view in my peripheral vision the whole time. Of course I can turn it off by just pressing the PDC button, but what would be great for me is:
- camera turns off like default at say 15kmh or 255m
- at any time or speed I can turn ON the rear camera by pressing the PDC button, then turn it off again with a second press.

Any ideas? Thanks again for getting this sorted out!

Hello I didn't have time to check

Try to put

REM 3203 The distance when it auto disables rear camera view when reverse is engaged D_SCHWELLE_2 to wert _02

Any luck? I completed all the steps, the camera still shuts off after I've driven maybe 15 feet, just as it did before coding.

Do the PDC sensors still work when your driving?
Just thinking this may be an easy way of having front PDC on all the time.
Activate rearview cam, then press menu, so camera should still technically be active (light above the parking sensor button still on) and hey presto, PDC on all the time too?

I don't think there's any way to turn off the PDC, if the camera is on the PDC is on. But I can't be sure, no matter what I've tried both the camera and PDC shut down after a few feet of traveling forward, even though the speed and distance shutdown function is coded off. I've also coded to turn on at any speed, but that doesn't work either.

UPDATE: Since the camera and PDC are tied together I surmised that both would have to be coded to use the camera at all speeds. In my configuration there's no separate PDC module, PDC is controlled by the REM module. That's where I applied these changes:

REM 3203 PdcParkMasterVar V_OFF_PF_R FF
REM 3203 PdcParkMasterVar V_SCHWELLE_1 FF
REM 3203 PdcParkMasterVar V_SCHWELLE_2 FF
REM 3203 PdcParkMasterVar D_SCHWELLE_1 FF
REM 3203 PdcParkMasterVar D_SCHWELLE_2 FF

After doing that the camera will go on at any speed, and stay on at any speed. However, it still goes off after traveling 255m, as determined by the FF setting in the D_SCHWELLE lines. I'm curious if anyone knows if there's a value that can be entered for D_SCHWELLE that removes the distance limitation entirely rather than just extending it to 255m.

FF = 1111 1111 Binary, so that would be max accepted value.

That I understand. How about a simple 'off' setting? I don't want to change the distance value, I want to eliminate it.

What I do not understand is the need to run cameras 255, let alone 1 km.

Compare the field of view to that in the mirror and you'll see. Replacement of rear view and side view mirrors with cameras and monitors is on the horizon.

Maybe in a coupe or cabrio, but I do not have any visibility issues.

Quoting my own post, I changed the FF to 00 in the REM 3203 PdcParkMasterVar D_SCHWELLE_ 1. That turns off the distance setting entirely, so the camera no longer turns off unless I want it to.
