Vehicle Compatibility: The PAC RP4.2-MB11 allows the
replacement of a factory radio in 2014-2016 Mercedes Sprinter vehicles with an
aftermarket head unit, while retaining valuable factory features and providing
convenient data bus driven outputs.
Note: The RP4.2MB 11 is only compatible with 2014-2016 Mercedes
Sprinter vehicles that are equipped with a factory radio. Mercedes Sprinters
equipped with the radio delete package will need to use PAC's RP4.2-MB21
Radio Dip Switches: The radio dip switches on the side of
the interface must be adjusted to the proper radio setting before plugging the
interface into the vehicle. The RP4.2-MB11 is compatible with Alpine, JVC,
Kenwood, Clarion, Pioneer, Sony, Fusion, Advent, Boyo, Dual, Lightning Audio,
Jensen, Rockford Fosgate, and Visteon aftermarket radios (see owner's manual for
appropriate dip-switch setting).
Programmable SWC: The RP4.2-MB11 comes pre-programmed for
all of the vehicle's factory SWC functions and does not require programming,
unless you wish to re-assign the SWC functions to different buttons or create
secondary functions. Use of this interface also allows you to program two radio
functions to each SWC button by using short press long press dual command
functionality. The SWC functions can be easily programmed; see default SWC
button assignments in the included user manual. The interface retains
programming even if your vehicle's battery is disconnected.
Note: The SWC harness contains a Blue/Yellow wire and a
3.5mm connector. You will only use one of the connectors, based on your type
of aftermarket radio. The Blue/Yellow wire supports Kenwood and newer JVC
receivers. The 3.5mm jack supports Alpine, Jensen, Older JVC, Clarion,
Pioneer, Sony, and Dual radios.
Factory Aux & USB Inputs: The PAC RP4.2-MB11 will retain your
vehicle's factory 3.5mm Aux input and USB port.
Factory Backup Camera Retention: The interface also retains
your vehicle's factory back-up camera through its composite video jack that
plugs into the camera input on the back of your new aftermarket stereo.
+12V/10A Accessory Output: Because there is no 12-volt
accessory wire in the Mercedes Sprinter factory harness, the PAC RP4.2-MB11
provides a 12V/10A switched accessory output for your new stereo. This saves
your from having to run an accessory wire from your new aftermarket radio to the
fuse box or underneath the steering column.
RAP (Retained Accessory Power): The PAC RP4.2-MB11 is designed
to retain your vehicle's RAP (Retained Accessory Power) system. RAP
(Retained Accessory Power) allows your vehicle's ignition power
source to keep the radio on until one of the doors is opened.
Navigation Outputs: The PAC RP4.2-MB11 is
outfitted with navigation output wires (Parking Brake, Reverse, Speed Sense) to
make installation of an aftermarket navigation receiver simpler and quicker.
Camera System Ready: By adding on the PAC VS41 (sold separately), you
have the ability to add front and blind-spot cameras (sold separately) creating
a complete camera system for your Mercedes Sprinter. When the VS41 is connected,
the RP4.2-MB11 will send the proper signals to the VS41 so that the left and right cameras are triggered when the
turn signals are active. The front camera can be triggered by using the supplied
3-way toggle switch (the front camera, when triggered via the supplied 3-way
toggle switch, will only be active at speeds below 6mph).
