Kenwood back-up camera setting 2008 model year Magna & Affinity
Published August 31, 2007
Factory default settinsg for a 2008 Magna or Affinity allows you to only view your back-up camera through your Silverleaf. The Silverleaf sits low, picture is small, and clarity is ok.
This instruction will show you how to activate your back-up camera on a new 2008 Magna or Affinity equipped with a Kenwood fixed screen dash stereo. Please write down your factory settings in the event you wish to restore them. This is all done using the screen "touch screen" to change settings.
Push the little "Function" button on the bottom of the face of the stereo
Touch "Setup" on the left side of your screen.
Touch/select "AV interface"
I want you to notice the bottom of your screen says "AV 1/F 1"
On this screen you have 3 settings that can be altered, they should read in order from top to bottom:
Once that is changed or confirm go to the bottom of your screen and touch the arrow changing the lower "AV 1/F 1" to "AV 1/F 2"
On the AV 1/F 2 screen you also have 3 settings that can be altered, they should read in order from top to bottom:
With the settings you have changed your back up camera will now also appear on your Kenwood fixed screen when the engine is running and your select reverse on your shifter. The advantage to this is your Kenwood sits up a bit higher and the clarity is much better.
