Love the OEM look this solution has.

I always back in to my parking spots so I will definitely be adding this to my list of future mods. Thanks for sharing!

I tried tirelessly but there's something needed from the wiring of the back up camera to make the on/off sensor button work on the new control unit. Had to put mine back to stock and resell the control unit I'd purchased.
Hmm, bugger. I just got the part and started doing the switch when I read this. Leaving it as is for now.

I have the camera and it works fine, did you have the same part number as mine? Was it new?

As per my post, you have a camera so yes you work. It does not work with RHD cars that don't have the optional back up/reversing camera added.

Great info! Is there anyway to have just camera display and not have the PDC display on the Idrive screen at the same time when reversing?

Here is the part in pieces. If you want to swap out the ecopro button.

It's a 5 minute install.
