Product Research


Audi Truck Handle Replacement Camera: The Crux CAD-05R Audi trunk handle replacement camera is specifically designed for 2009-2014 Audi 8 vehicles with an aftermarket in-dash multimedia or navigation receiver installed. Your aftermarket receiver must feature an integrated video monitor and a composite video camera input. The Crux CAD-05R replaces your vehicle's factory trunk handle assembly. With the Crux CAD-05R Audi trunk handle replacement camera installed, you'll be able to view what's behind you on your in-dash aftermarket receiver's video monitor when you put your vehicle in reverse.

Note: This rear-view camera is meant as a back-up aid only; never solely rely on the rear-view camera when backing-up. In addition to using the rear-view camera, always look behind you to make sure everything is clear when backing up your vehicle.

Image Sensor & Lens: The Crux CAD-05R Audi trunk handle replacement camera features a CCD image sensor that offers 480 lines of resolution (NTSC or PAL compatible). The bright f/1.2 lens has 170° (horizontal) x 90° (vertical) viewing angle. The minimum illumination is 0.4 Lux.

Park Assist Lines: The rear-view camera provides parking assist lines on the screen of your vehicle's in-dash aftermarket monitor. These parking lines are there to assist you when backing up into a parking space. There are two vertical lines which help you judge the left and right edges of the parking space and your vehicle. There are also 3 color-coded horizontal lines that are used to distinguish how close you are getting to the end of the parking spot - Green (Clear), Yellow (Getting Close), Red (Very Close).

Note: The park assist lines are turned on and active by default. If you prefer to turn off the park assist lines, you will need to splice together the two small, thin white wires on the the attached power/signal cable of the rear-view camera.

Connections: The rear-view camera features an attached 2.5' power/signal cable which plugs into the included 20' video cable which also features attached 2.5' power/ground wires. At the end of the video cable is a male RCA composite video plug, which connects to the composite, rear-view camera input of your aftermarket head unit. The power (red) & ground (black) wires will need to be hardwired. 12V power can be obtained from your vehicle's reverse light circuit or from the reverse gear wire of your aftermarket stereo (if applicable). The ground will need to connected to your vehicle's metal chassis.

Waterproof Housing: The Crux CAD-05R Audi trunk handle replacement camera features an IP67 waterproof housing.
