If you are not sure how to connect something in context with the camubox, please do not experiment, but call us.
We will be happy to assist you. During the weekend the fastest way of obtaining advice is via mail.
The installation of the camubox is very simple. You do not have to be an expert to perform it within a few minutes. First you have to pull out the car radio from the instrument panel using the appropriate hooks for pulling it out. If you do not have these hooks, your car dealer will certainly be prepared to assist you. Many car dealers do this in a minute and at no charge.
Before you get started, however, please note: a few radios prompt for entry of the radio security code after having been separated from the car electrics. Please find out the code before setting about the installation of the camubox, if this is the case with your radio. The radio code should be included in the documentation of your radio. However, for most more recent radios this is not necessary.
If your radio has a mini-ISO connector:
Insert the mini-ISO end of the connection cable into the place provided for it on the rear side of your radio. The plug must engage. Normally the mini-ISO plug fits in only one place, therefore please do not exercise force. Then connect the grounding loop to an earthed screw on the housing. The grounding loop has to be connected by all means, since otherwise the camubox cannot operate.
If your radio has a Quadlock connector:
Pull the big plug out of the rear of the radio.
Insert the Quadlock end of the connection cable into the place provided for it in the big plug. The plug must engage. Normally the Quadlock plug fits in only one place, therefore please do not exercise force. Then connect the grounding loop to an earthed screw on the housing. The grounding loop has to be connected by all means, since otherwise the camubox cannot operate.
For either type of connection:
Now re-lay the cable to the future position of the camubox. Our suggestion: Pull the cable through a slot in the access covers into the front-seat passenger's footwell. In this way you will not have to drill any holes. Fix the camubox on the side of the panel, e.g. using a double-faced adhesive tape or Velcro tape. You may of course also choose a different place for your camubox.
Then insert the other end of the cable (plug similar to RJ45) into the camubox. Done!
