Evening Bart,Hi Tom and hello A2OC thank you for the warm welcome.
Thank you for your help so far, you seem like a top bloke!
I am happy to share any knowledge I will acquire while modding my RNSE. So far I did not really take any pictures or shared any information as in what I am modding in my car, but this I think needs to change as I have added quite a bit to my car already over past 2 years I have it, and like you this is a daily so its all on a budget so it will be in reach for most of the people out there who are looking to do the same, well except this bumper thats nowhere to be found that I plan on installing soon.
I am not by any means good at coding or electronics but I am quick to figuring out how to do anything so I am sure I will be sending you a pm with a questions, so I thank you in advance for this.
Coming back to the OPC retrofit as the Camera with OPC is out of the question for the minute as its out of my budget range, but what interested me actually was the OPC and the Camera view simultaneously on the screen form the link I have shared.
I have the 3R0 035 192 and I have currently got just the rear sensors, however as I mentioned will be upgrading the front bumper to the rare one I was thinking maybe retrofitting the front sensors and upgrading the PDC module would be wiser. However for now the rear one will do.
I just went to purchase the Adruino Uno CAN BUS shield with MCP2515 EF2037 with a DB9 connection and also the STMicroelectronics E-L9637D IC, so for now I will probably change over to the RNSE to the custom firmware and wait for the other parts to arrive which will take eternity I am sure. I will keep in touch and as soon as I will have all the required ingredients I will most likely check in with you!
Please do get in touch once you have everything ready to go. It’s certainly worth also getting in touch with Stuart who runs the rnse.pcbbc website. He may be able to adjust the Arduino Sketch to suite your PDC/OPS Control Module.
The faded OPS Display within the Rear View Camera Display does look rather nice. If this was achievable in the A2 then I wouldn’t be bothered about cost of the Video Control Module, I love it. I’m not sure our generation of Audi Navigation Plus is actually capable of this though. I’d be very happy to be proved wrong though as I see this as something that I MUST have.
I’ll have a chat with some contacts I’ve made regards this later style display when reverse is selected.
Good luck with all that you’re trying to achieve, more than happy to help out where I can.
