Does anybody know if this has been done with the rcd-510 / GLI fender system.
I took a chance and ordered the JSW/Tiguan back-up camera and was hoping it will fit on the Jetta as well. Guess what???? it does
Part number for the trunk handle on the Jetta is 5N0 827 566
Part number for the JSW handle with camera is 5N0 827 566J so its the same part and it fits great.
As for the rest of the install i haven't done it but looks very similar to what has been done on JSW.
Few changes on the harness side. The harness that i ordered from Poland Ebay does come with Yellow/Black/Red wires. Black/Red wires are really long and go all the way. Yellow wire is short and should be used as "Signal" wire and get connected to the back up lights, no need to run it to CECM on the Jetta.
Just before everyone starts asking me where i got it from, it was purchased from ebay under the seller www*carsystems*pl
Here are the camera pictures.
Install went really easy.
Took radio out and connected the plug in the back of the RNS-315.
I just followed the radio harness and followed the same path.
then decided to follow another harness that went all the way to the back. took the door sills out and tucked the wire harness under. I've also decided to take 2 more wires and attach to the harness as well. These wires will be used later on for the rear fog and maybe something else as well, mind as well do all the leg work now.
used the electrical wire and re-wrapped the length of the cable.
once i got to the trunk, then just followed the same harness that goes into the trunk lid. Rest was easy!
Sorry, i didnt take too many pictures, rain was on and off and i was trying to finish this ASAP.
Here is the final product. Overall it was easy to do, lot of thanks goes to others that have finished this task in the past.

Very nice, how much did it run you in parts? I see that you have a TDI 6spd also . I assume the harness has everything needed for the reverse gear switch. The link you posted doesn't work.
2012 Volkswagon Jetta TDI - 6spd - Navi - 17" SELs - Votex Lip Kit
1997 Nissan Maxima SE - V2 Supercharged w/ 11psi
1986 Nissan 300ZX 2+2 GLL - 5spd
As for the harness, its got everything, you just need to connect the 3 wires.
Yellow- connects to the + signal wire of back-up lights.
Black- connects to ground, wires are long enough that will allow you to connect to ground near fuse box.
Red- its connected to a ACC+ in the fuse, but i need to buy the proper connetion to connect to the back of the fuse box. currently its just connected with "add a fuse"
Hope this helps. Not sure what happened to myturbodiesel site, but if you just google vw back up camera you will get tons of hits.

I've done some searching but couldn't find it anywhere but how do I find out what model radio I have to see if I can do this? I have a 2012 jetta 2.5 SE with convenience and sunroof. I would love to add this feature to my wife's car since she has a horrible time backing up. She backed into several things in her last car.
According to VW's Website the SE with conv & moonroof comes with the Touchscreen VIII radio, the SEL would have provided you with the RNS-315 to hook up the back up camera.
will this work on an aftermarket gps unit?

I successfully completed the install today. Thanks Mo_Focus for your help on getting this done!! It wasn't that difficult of an install. I ended up ordering the part off of some guy on ebay. He ordered the JSW latch release / camera combo from VW Japan and the wire from VW Poland. I believe the total price was about $380'ish shipped to my door for both parts and it took about 2 1/2 hours for the install. Would have been done sooner, but my camera lead wasn't connected properly so it took a bit to diagnose.
Let me know if anyone wants the contact information for this guy.
I bought the same camera from an eBay seller and originally intended to have a VW mechanic install but but having a look at this thread I may have a got at it myself.
Are you able to give me some pointers on how to start pulling apart the trims and how to take the radio out? Or at least point me to a thread that shows how to do these? It seems straightforward but I don't want to start yanking out parts of the car and break them
Ok this is just FYI for people thinking of getting a new head unit to install a camera.
There are 3 RCD510's used by VW worldwide. One of them have definitely got a video input interface at the back, the other 2 may or may not. As I understand it, the head units of Jettas in the US all don't have video inputs. Can someone identify which of the following are used in the US?
For those with non-touchscreen head units and would like to get one with a video input, I suggest looking for a BOSCH model shipped from overseas (US may only sell those without the input). You can identify the models based on the buttons on the screen.
BOSCH - this one supposedly all have video input
BLAUPUNKT - not sure?
DELPHI - not sure?
I'm really interested in completing this on my 2012 GLI with Rcd 510 fender. Can u help an east coast guy out with parts and directions?
Im the process now of collecting a bunch of parts for my massive diy install of hardwire radar detector with mute button hardwired in a custom button, esp button, and built in garage door opener, I figure while its all apart I can add this to the list.

So wait, if you have a 2012 GLI Autobahn with the Fender (no Phone button). Then how would you go about hooking it up. This thread seems to have gone in several directions with only limited part #'s and install directions or pointers.
For anyone who has done this, were you able to fish the wire across the dash (from the radio to the opening by the driver door) without taking the dash apart? From this thread it looked like that was possible, but I know over in the JSW thread they detail pulling the instrument cluster and everything to accomplish this. I'm hoping that's not necessary!
Also, it was no problem to get the wire through the wire loom that goes into the trunk lid? Looking at mine it seems like it's pretty tight, especially with the video connector on the end of the cable.
I didn't take my dash apart. All I did was take the radio out and fished the wire through a small hole which allowed me to get into the spot above the footwell. We didn't even take panels out. The only panel we took off was the footrest (which we still can't get back on). We ran the wires along the doorsill panels and tucked them under. They fell right into place and don't show at all. We then fished the wire into the trunk through a gap from the backseat area into the trunk (again you can't see anything). Lastly, we ran the wire in the plastic wire loom on the trunk and through the existing hole in the grommet. You can't tell this was installed aftermarket at all. Best of all...no need to take apart any panels. The entire install took 3 hours. 1 hour 30min of it was trying to figure out why the camera didn't switch over ( bad connection).
