Would help if you told us where you were.

RCD 330 would be a plug and play you could do yourself, would just have to check you have the newer can gateway to avoid the battery drain I think.

Reverse camera is a bit more of a PITA though. If you're not a handy person it can take a bit of effort.

Sorry Iím in Palmerston North, how do I check if I have the newer can gateway?

Thanks for your help, also where would be the best place to buy one from?

RCD330 Plus from eBay or Aliexpress. The camera from Aliexpress. McDoof posted a link to one not so long ago that looked good. Thinking of getting one myself.

I just purchased one from Aliexpress.  With shipping it cost $487.00.  The install looks easy for the head deck, but the camera may be a bit trickier.

I didn't bother with the camera, but they are an extra $30.00 USD.

Cheers, have you installed yours yet? What year is your car? Do the steering wheel controls work?

Only arrived yesterday - super fast shipping.
Will install today, if you start a chat with the seller he will ask for a pic of your steering wheel and make sure you have the correct unit.  Mine is going into a 2014 Amarok HL.
