The camera is bought was from ebay (link below)
Item:BMW E36 E46 E39 E34 E38 REAR VIEW PARKING SENSOR CAMERA
* product Brand New
* 25mm water proof colour wide angle lens camera with 1.5m cable
* Night vision image black/white
* Build in sensors and waterproof
* PAL video signal output 1.0Vp-p, 75 OHM, effective pixels 628x582
* Works with any monitor or DVD player
It is definitely PAL, like i said when i use (white plug) PIN 15 & 6 the picture is clear (Via TV and selecting AV channel), but i did notice when i ground (Blue) PIN 17 there was an interference which is the same as i get when i use (White) PIN 13 & 14 and Ground (Blue) IN 17........could (Blue) PIN 17 (reverse camera ground) be the problem???
I have not installed the 12v relay, yet as i don't want to do that until i get a clear picture, currently PIN 17 is grounded on the car body (also tried other ground points to see if that clears up the picture but unfortunately this has not worked)..
** one more thing, would the software version (SW 3-1/63 of my SAT/NAV cause a problem? you can see from my pictures that i am running on an older version..if so how do i get an upgrade?)
