  • Audio20 and Audio50 APS have been installed longer than above dates.
  • The Audio50 APS with arrow only navigation (navi button but no PCMCIA on head-unit) is in above vehicles only available as NTG4, an Audio50 APS NTG4.5 does not exist. This means that the VL2-MBN4 fits the Audio 50 APS with arrow only navigation.
  • There is no Becker MapPilot or preparation in combination with NTG4 head-units. This accessory indicates an NTG4.5 head-unit (then RL2-MBN45 will fit).


If above info does not identify your head-unit, we suggeste for vehicles til end of 2012, to check prior to ordering on backside of head-unit or monitor whether the connector for LVDS-video is a squared 10pin (i.e. VL2-MBN4 is suitable; NTG4.5 has a round 4-pin HSD LVDS image connector).



Video only The interface inserts ONLY video signals into the infotainment. For inserting Audio signals either the possibly existing factory audio-AUX-input or a FM-modulator can be used.
Factory rear-view camera Automatically switching-back from inserted video to factory rear-view camera is only possible while the reverse gear is engaged. To delay the switch-back an additional electronic part is required.
