    ▀▄ eas | Video Source Module (VSM) for BMW

    This kit allows you to view camera/video inputs on your BMW's navigation screen. The unique picture in picture layout allows the user to view the map or iDrive screen while viewing a reverse camera feed or video source. When the car is put into reverse the VSM module automatically activates the reverse camera display; when the car is taken out of reverse the camera display is deactivated.

    The optional camera fits into the BMW trunk by replacing one of the license plate lights for an OEM look and fitment. With an integrated LED license plate light, no functionality is lost after replacement. The camera is equipped with an ultra wide angle lens allowing you to see what is behind the car as much as possible. The VSM module allows you to overlay a parking distance apex grid on the reverse camera display.

    Reverse bumblebee Camera (optional)
    Imported overseas from one of the best CCTV Security Surveillance equipment manufacturers in Taiwan, Misumi is well known for applying state-of-the-art CMOS Image Sensor Devices (Camera On A Chip) to the design and manufacturing of security surveillance video cameras.

    These kind of cameras incorporate high technology used to minimize the size of the cameras and produce a crisp and clear picture quality. The small and indestructible design allows for mounting virtually anywhere on the vehicle without the need for drilling.

    The "bumblebee" camera gets its name from the mounting bracket that can be mounted virtually anywhere from underneath the decklid next to your license plate or underneath the rear spoiler. This is perfect for newer BMWs that do not feature a keyhole, eliminating the need for drilling. The camera features a 150-degree maximum viewing angle and a 0.5 LUX rating for low light viewing, even in dark areas.

    - Significantly decreasing power consumption; operates on 3-12V DC
    - Lightweight
    - High reliability at low cost
    - RCA video input
    - Simple installation
    - Great for covert use in any place imaginable

    It is illegal in all 50 states, and in most Canadian Providences, to have real time video (TV Broadcast, VHS, DVD, Video, etc.) in view of the driver. If you are going to use the VSM for anything other than interfacing a rearview camera system, the interlock wire must be properly connected to prevent the driver from viewing real time video while driving. Please drive safe and obey all laws while driving.
