screws holding it in place.
4: Remove the glove box and set aside.
5: Run the Camera Interface main harness from
the glove box area behind the dash to behind the
LCD panel where you see the connections for the
Radio control module. The Harness end that has
the small white connectors should be located behind
glove box.
6: Unplug the plug from the white color connector on
radio control module (shown below) and connect to
interface harness. Connect the interface harness to
the radio control module white plug.
7: Move to the area behind the glove box compartment,
here you will find the HMI Module (see below when
looking up behind the glove box compartment).
8: Start by disconnecting the black colored plug on the
module. Plug the connector you just removed into the
Interface harness and the harness into the HMI Module.
9: Next move to the Blue LVDS video connector on the
HMI Module. Disconnect this plug. Find the two LVDS
cables included in your kit. These will plug into the
Camera interface module and into the HMI module as
well as the LVDS cable you just removed. Connect the
included cables and route them to the area below the
glove box for use later.
10: All connections to the vehicle are now done. Next
you will make your connections to the Camera Interface
module. Once all connections are made the module can
be mounted or located anywhere under or near the
glove box. You will need to find a location and plan your
wiring path to come to this location.

Included in your package are two drill and mount
cables. The USB cable is used for system updates
and will supply charging power for a device.
The HDMI Cable is used for Phone Mirroring to the
OEM screen.
A: Determine where you want to mount these
connections. In the lower or upper glove box is
the recommended location. Also mounting near
each other for use of the USB power when
phone mirroring is advisable.
B: After determining your mounting location and
double checking that there is room behind the
location drill a 1.25" hole for each cable.
C: Push the cables through the hole snapping the
connector into place.
D: Route the cables to the interface location.
