quick update, although still waiting on some parts

the cooling for comand online:
this has arrived and is only needed if you have ntg4.5 or ntg5 comand online.
it is fitted to the right side of the head unit regardless if it RHD or LHD.




you do have more inputs and more antennas to add to the car. including new wlan and gps.
the gps antenna is in the rear spoiler. Near the centre brake, light i added a gps duplex as well as run a new wire to connect to the rear of the comand head unit.

facelift motorised reversing camera:
this has been a headache. there are 2 main connectors on this and a control module for the operation. it dose use 2 fuses on the interior fuse box. fuse 108 and fuse 50



camera control module, in the left hand side boot/trunk compartment


the older style fixed camera will not work with the ntg5, unless you get a aftermarket camera

What will happen to the various menu option on the new head unit for configuring the car? As in the pre FL these are fine in the instrument cluster?

they are managed by the sams module. once the head-unit is programmed it should in theory work
