Re: Uconnect issues

I just ordered the connects2 infodapter set with all the cables and fascia for the 500L, and I'll keep you updated )))


Did someone install a rear view camera and can recommend one that is easy to install ?

I hope it goes all well, I would like to hear from your setup as I may try it out as well

I can't find out what specific features infodapter includes but we shall hope it includes the steering wheel controls and other canbus stuff like parking sensors rain and personalization like door locks, I think it may also do climate control but I dont know if it is supported on 500L

The camera is something to be researched as well including its size for placement and the wiring to the radio, I assume power can be through boot light but don't want to trigger the error correction warning on dash of back headlights by wiring to stop headlamp for example.

I'll definitely post the results here

Regarding the supported features, aren't they clear from the Youtube video you posted in this thread ?


The video seems to relate to the 500L specifically, and it shows moreorless everything that can be set via the Uconnect. Additionally it seems to show a graphic display of the rear parking assist (but not the status of each sensor )
Steering wheel controls are apparently mandatory anyway, since the infodapter is activated via the Menu button on the steering wheel. I wonder whether the infodapter uses the 'reverse gear' input of the radio to 'capture' the display. This would explain why it apparently has an input for the reverse camera, and the camera needs to be plugged to the infodapter instead of the radio itself.

Re: Uconnect issues

I have ordered everything, radio, DAB+ antenna and rear cam are sitting at home, waiting. The infodapter that I ordered at a british shop is still somewhere in GB, parcel tracking shows it spent 3 days (!) at 'customs documentation and labeling' alone. Customs ? Did I miss something and Brexit already happened ?

Re: Uconnect issues

It arrived today What also arrived was an answer from connects2, which says that the kit does not connect the original microphone to the aftermarket radio.
Does anyone know how the microphone is connected to the UConnect system ? Maybe it is still possible to connect it somehow to the Pioneer .... I don't want to glue the Pioneer microphone somewhere unless I absolutely have to ...

Re: Uconnect issues

This takes more time than expected ... the infodapter kit missed a cable which they now send me, guess that will take another 2 weeks and I still have to solve the microphone and the USB connection ...

Re: Uconnect issues

Since it is not really an Uconnect topic any more, I will continue here:
