Reason i dont have is i do not have front proximity sensors. Hence each time im parking close to something i have to stop, put car in N then in to D to activate front camera for 10 sec. To stop all that i thought to fit that console as shown above with parking sensor button so i can just press the button and front cam comes on for 10 sec.

Only thing that pisses me off is when i drive and stop at traffic lights i always use to put car in Neutral, but each tome i put in Drive front cam comes on (does that bother you?) so for now when i stop at traffic lights i keep foot on breaks and keep car in Drive.
If you have an Android head unit, you could just have the reverse cam as normal linked to reverse light etc, then if you want a front cam connect it to the extra yellow RCA-IN lead on the back of the head unit (av-in or similar), then you can activate the camera on screen by using the avin app (find in apps, not to do with the company avin that sells Android head units, just an app 'avin' as in AV-IN)

This thread if for people that own original equipment original idrive hence it comes with decoder. Bimer tech MMI camera only works on original equipment and does not require codding, this is exactly the same. Go do you research before spamming forums.

I will notify admins or mods to remove your falce comments. Apologies guys.
Hold on a minute here, I was trying to help and you and answered me so I returned with further help. No need to attack me about it, I thought I was doing the right thing here.

Not my intention to take over a thread, but solely just to help you with your dilemma as you were asking for help.

If I have offended you then my apologies, but that was not my intent.

I'm dumbfounded why you would attack like this when someone goes out of their way to try and help a person.

I am not a spammer, I was trying to contribute and help you, and if you no longer wanted any help from me then a polite return saying so would be appreciated.

Anyway, once again my apologies if I upset you, I sincerely did not mean to.
